Review this tv show
Mar 29, 2020This show is just a bunch of crap made on a false pretense to help illuminate the plight of roadside zoo animals and photo babies. Instead all this is is a bunch of lies that will hurt the cats the filmmakers claimed to want to help.
This is exploitation and no one who likes big cats should avoid this trash show

What unfolds from this years-long scrimmage is too delicious to give away, but it involves a cast of colorful oddballs living on the fringes of society. ... “Tiger King” exposes the furry underbelly of a big-cat community I’d never known about, in which the lines between loving wild animals and exploiting them are never quite clear. In the end, I felt queasy at what I had seen, but the time sure had flown.
The Netflix documentary is so horrifically addicting you’ll be like a cat at feeding time. Never mind some of the seven-part series’ editing or focus. The production pulls you in because the characters are so unabashedly brazen. They don’t just talk about their hatred. They openly demonstrate it, helping you understand a layer of society you never knew existed.
