As the world goes into quarantine to minimise the spread of coronavirus, good telly is arguably more important than ever.
Netflix has many great offerings to make social distancing more enjoyable. Its latest docuseries, Tiger King, dropped on the streamer last Friday, but it’s already causing quite the stir on social media.
The seven-episode series delves into the true story behind eccentric zookeeper Joe Exotic, from his obsession with big cats to his long-running feud with animal activist Carole Baskin – which ultimately landed him in prison.
It’s a wild, twisty ride, with many viewers taking to Twitter to express their thoughts, including Kim Kardashian.

As in the craziest thing you’ll watch.
I know people say this a lot about movies and shows.
But “Tiger King” is the single craziest docuseries I’ve ever seen.

It’s so engrossing, it seemingly has the power to stop you from constantly checking the news, as a fan pointed out.
Some are also labelling it their #NetflixAndQuarantine watch.
Me: I can’t stop thinking about, talking about, or reading about the coronavirus

The docuseries fills the gap left by the likes of Making a Murderer, Cheer and Fyre: The Greatest Party that Never Happened (which was made by the same people behind Tiger King), all of which gripped viewers and launched their subjects to fame.
