"A rivalry between big cat eccentrics takes a dark turn when Joe Exotic, a controversial animal park boss, is caught in a murder-for-hire plot." - IMDb
Okayyyyy I gave in. I finally decided to watch this since my FB is nonstop about this show.
AND I am glad I watched it. This is a hot mess of people and I was hooked from episode one. I had to know how everything went to Hell in a hand-basket. Like all things...it started with good intentions, but ends with power struggles, money, betrayals, murder, revenge, and forgetting about what truly mattered. THE ANIMALS.
Those poor tigers and bears and etc. They are the true victims. These "zoos" need to be closed down. Let the animals go to real zoos and sanctuaries. Maybe some can go to the wild if they are wild enough.
These people are insane. Carole is a hubbie-murdering monster. Joe is crazy and an idiot. Doc is a sex cult leader. Jeff is a con man. The crews are insane to want to work with these people.
What more to say?
You just have to watch it. It's a hot mess of people and a situation that spiraled out of control. This show really does show that humans suck. I will note - the first couple of episodes are slooooowwww. It takes a min for things to heat up.
I'll give this......mmmmmmmmmm.......ummmmmm.....*does math* 4 stars. Mainly because the ending of the last episode does refocus us to the true victims of this whole situation....the animals. Send ALL those people to jail.
