    I didn't finish the first episode and won't be going back to finish it.

    It was interesting. I watched it for 40 mins before something better came on.

    I'm Sorry

    The timeline.


    SPOILER ALERT
    You know how that Marlboro man guy is filming the internetshow in order to collect footage for his own documentary, right?
    This documentary was supposed to be his big break. But he gives up after a fire destroys all the footage which was made.

    This happens in episode 3 or 4.

    So explain to me: if all the footage is gone... who filmed the material of the episodes before that?

    No, it's not Exotic himself, nor his staff, as the style of filming and the quality are the same. Being a cameraman is a trade, not something you just pick up. And if any had been able to film this quality, Exotic wouldn't have needed that outside guy.

    So yeah, it's fake.A good fake, but still fake.

    To me, that makes the whole thing fake. If you present something to be "truly"  registered, but you present me with a reconstruction, then to me the series is fake. Sure, I buy that it is based on true events and all, but this way, I cannot know which part is real and which not. So the conclusion is that it is not reliably true, thus fake.

    I couldn't care less about these trash people.  Just like the Wild and Wonderful Whites of West Virginia and Honey Boo Boo.  These are people that don't deserve to be glorified or recognized.  They are scum, no more than attractions in today's boob tube side show.

    I think it brings up some issues.
    Tigers are endangered but Peta wants them not to be bred in "Carol Baskins" animal park.

    Who really wouldn't want to touch a tiger cub? They are so cute!

    Is there somewhere in the world that tigers could live free?

    Of course Carol killed her husband. She's smart enough to get away with it and get Peta onside. Seriously, she is allergic to cats, yet they are her whole life?

    I think this is a mockumentry but it does seem to be based on real people and events, so the actors keep it as real as possible or they would be sued. It is the US after all.


    In November 2019, Universal Content Productions announced that they were adapting a Joe Exotic podcast for television, with Kate McKinnon portraying Baskin.[29] In March 2020, Baskin was featured in the Netflix documentary Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness.[30] She later spoke out against the series, calling it "salacious and sensational", and criticized directors Eric Goode and Rebecca Chaiklin.[25] Baskin stated that the filmmakers lied about the nature of the series when they approached her about it, claiming that they told her that they were going to be making "the big cat version of Blackfish".[25][31] After Tiger King was released, several Internet memes targeted Baskin and her speculated involvement in Lewis's disappearance.[32]

    Thats the real Carole

    Maybe Joe exotic is the only actor, since he's in prison.

    Blackfish was about a killer whale that literally put the “killer” in the name. It also encompassed captivity and treatment in Seaworlds all over, but the focus whale was a multiple victim killer. 


    How did she think it was going to be the “big cat version”? Like they were going to solely focus on the tiger she fed her husband to? I don’t think she liked her portrayal during the movie. She looked like a crazy ass.


    And I know in Texas, people buy cubs like it ain’t no thing. Then in adulthood they realize it costs thousands to feed and house and they want them gone which is why these animal parks pop up.


    I think that the struggle/fighting in tiger king was probably real between the parks, but I’m sure the show was one of those “loosely based” stories and they did flip things around and mess with footage to make it more interesting.
