Tiger King two can be watched on Netflix.

Maybe you did know or didn’t know Tiger King 2 came out on Netflix last month.

If you were not aware, it’s probably because this season does not have the same hype around it. Or, you simply saw it and did not like it.

The first "Tiger King" Netflix documentary series, "Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness," features Joseph Maldonado-Passage known as Joe Exotic, who owned an Oklahoma zoo. Now, he is serving time in prison after being convicted of a murder-for-hire plot to kill Carole Baskin and violating endangered species laws.

Well, I’m here to break down the five episodes of the new Tiger King and see what Exotic is up to now.

Beware, there will be spoilers ahead so if you have not seen the show, you might want to check it out, but without further ado, let’s get into the review. 

Episode One: “I Beg Your Pardon” 

“I Beg Your Pardon” is strong episode that discusses the “after” from the first Tiger King series.

The episode centered on more of the politics of the show and the different public reactions to Carole Baskin and Exotic while showing how the initial series impacted the people series. Baskin said she would not participate in the second season because of the way she was portrayed in the first season. 

At one point in the episode, it showed people's reactions to Baskin and Exotic. One of the reactions they showed was OJ Simpson’s video he posted on Twitter declaring Carole’s ex-husband, “tiger sashimi." Simpson is former football running and an acquitted murder defendant who a jury convicted of armed robbery and kidnaping in a different case.

After this, the episode also shows the efforts Exotic’s team put forth to get him released, which includes asking for a presidential pardon from former president, Donald Trump.
