Edit: FYI I still have no idea where this documentary is going.


I’ve watched it all and I’m not sure what point they were trying to make. It isn’t worth the hype around it even slightly.

Do yourself a favour and don't. It's exploitative trash and you would honestly feel totally down in the dumps near the end of the series when they unbelievably think it's a good idea to show someone who is in a bad way successfully taking their life off-screen and the reaction of the person who witnesses it. It's awful shite and I wish I'd never heard of it.


I think most of that bit is in the trailer someone gets mauled by a tiger and apparently dies, then the guy who owns the zoo only seems worried about the financial impact

If it relates to your spoiler, then... nope. That isn't it.

I'd say watch the first 3 episodes. It's called Tiger King but what makes the story so bizarre is how the story diverges from just being about a man who owns a lot of tigers.

Plus the fact its subbed makes the crap acting far more bearable.

As for Tiger King, I'm not watching it as I can't stand this type of Louis Theroux esque 'documentary' involving crazy people.

Was a fan of Kingdom, agreed it was a bit slow in parts but was a good take on a zombie apocalypse that I hadn't seen before. Also the Korean countryside looks really nice in lots of it.

Not started season 2 yet but it's on the list. Seems to have very good reviews, may need to have a recap on season 1 before I do start.

I'm on the second episode and it's moved pretty far away from just being about Joe.

I deiced to watch it after my sister sent me a partition to free Joe Exotic but after watching the first episode, I was like "nooo way".

The whole thing seem totally nuts.

There’s only one scene that shocked me but apart from that, it’s a pretty average documentary about crazy rednecks.

Also I don’t understand why people are clamouring for Joe Exotic to be free from prison. The man’s guilty as hell.

I watched the first episode of tiger king and thought it was boring american shite.

I watched 100 humans and that was OK. I like the redhead, and i was amazed at how many toilet paper squares americans use at a time.

Anyone else just overwhelmed by the content? Seems to be more and more (I’d say tv series mostly) being added. I find my list is mostly the same stuff I’ve always watched or watched multiple times. As if I’m scared for something new.

The vast majority of content on Netflix either doesn't appeal to me in the slighttest or is stuff I've already seen.

The murder for hire was a stitch up in my opinion but you’re still left with 17 federal charges of animal abuse.

I know this is the Netflix thread but... When a film or programme is ending on Amazon Prime what do you press to watch the credits and prevent autoplay of the next episode?
