The 7-part series retells the story of a war between a very flamboyant tiger owner named Joe Exotic and his enemy, a Florida-based animal activist named Carole Baskin.

It is mostly about the scandalous lives of these people in America's big cat community... and we cannot get enough.

There was a lot of drama over the years...

And Joe Exotic seemed to really have it in for Carole Baskin, with footage showing him repeatedly wishing death upon her and describing how he would like to kill her. Yikes.

The show takes things to a whole new level...

And it has already been branded as "bonkers" by viewers but that certainly doesn't mean it isn't binge-worthy.

And when Joe's life gradually began to spiral out of control, he landed himself into some deep trouble.

And after he married both John Finlay and Travis Maldonado in a 3-way ceremony, both of his husbands gradually deteriorated with drug use and mental health problems. Travis tragically took his own life after he made claims that he wasn't at all gay, and Joe had simply hoodwinked him by fueling his addictions.

And after this marriage tragically fell apart...

Joe himself fell into a downward spiral and his obsession with Carole and her husband grew even bigger.

And last year, things took a turn for the worst.

Joe was sentenced to twenty-two years in prison for attempting to have Carole murdered.

And of course, the internet is now a Tiger King minefield.

The memes have been flooding in...

And even though this is poking fun at real-life events, we cannot get enough during lockdown.

And we must say...

Tiger King couldn't have possibly come at a better time.

The show has been at the top of the ranks for weeks now...

And its popularity seems to know no bounds.

Weeks after its release...

Fans are still talking about it.

And let's not get started on the memes...

They're still flooding in.

But all good things must come to an end.

After an impressive run, Tiger King is now no longer the most in-demand documentary in the world.

In fact, the show has been dethroned by an unlikely contender.

We did not expect that...
