Netflix miniseries Tiger King, proved that timing is everything. Would this have been such a hit if viewers weren’t self-isolating/on lockdown in their homes?

We don’t have a definite answer but I’m sure it didn’t hurt that people were in need of a distraction, during that period and watch all that craziness unfold was just what the doctor ordered.

Especially when there are absolutely no redeeming characters.

You start with (and focus on) Joe exotic, who is, as per his own description “A gay, gun-carrying redneck with a mullet” but soon meet characters like Bhagavan “Doc” Antle, alleged drug kingpin Mario Tabraue and of course Carole Baskin.

Every episode contains some of the most peculiar footage you will ever witness. Not everything is brilliant but Tiger King is undeniably addictive.

In the end, it’s like watching a train wreck, you don’t want to stare, but you just can’t look away.
