In order to complete my feelings of numbness and despair, I need to watch a Netflix true-crime series about a crew of scurvy redneck eccentrics living on an outdoor big-cat zoo in Bumblefuck, Oklahoma.

Flamboyantly toothless lowlifes and a murder-for-hire plot that gradually takes precedence, and the poor, sad, eye-rolling tigers who have to endure their company because they have no choice. God, how I despise hinterland low-lifes and their appalling lack of taste in everything, clothing and hairstyles in particular.

The lead characters are Joe Exotic (aka Joseph_Maldonado-Passage), Bhagavan “Doc” Antle and big-cat enthusiast and Tampa-based zoo owner Carole Baskin.

Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness began airing on 3.20.20.
