This will keep you at the edge of your seat

Tiger King is the story of the eccentric self-proclaimed tiger conservationist and Zookeeper Joe Exotic. The show succeeds at creating a gripping narrative that will keep you at the edge of your seat. Each episode ends with a dreadfully shocking twist.

The abuse and exploitation suffered by the wild animalises appalling. The sheer audacity of how Joe Exotic goes on from being another Zookeeper to building a sizeable empire that ultimately leads him in jail is intriguing to watch. The great thing about the show is the short episodes. The show has 7 quick episodes, all of which are a little shorter than an hour. The show makes for an interesting watch owing to the sheer eccentricities of the various characters, their flamboyant lives and tragic back stories stories. The show leaves many loose threads. One of the biggest downers is that the show does not traverse into important details such as the truth about the allegation that one of the characters killed her husband.

Although the greater objective of the show was to give the viewers an insight into the unprecedented abuse suffered by the animals at the hands of their own masters, the crime angle made for an interesting and rhetorical watch.
