Netflix Is A Joke

Need help understanding the protests going on in the USA?

Dave Chappelle, in an incredible twist of fate doesn’t even have to tell jokes. He as become one of the most powerful voices in America, by just voicing his opinion in a funny but mostly serious and undeniably political way.

This is not your average comedy set (not only because of the unusual setting) and Chappelle starts off by acknowledging it as he asks the audience “Is this weird?”

The jokes are scarce and he mostly focus instead, on listing other accounts of police brutality (and police culture, that prevents/doesn’t reward a officer from telling on another officer for their wrongdoing) towards black man and women.

Chappelle storytelling abilities allow him to wrap all this behind his personal experience, in what is a very compelling performance.

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.
