We all remember Joe Exotic and Carole Baskin!

The widely popular true crime documentary premiered on Netflix on March 20, 2020.

The show followed the life of Joe Exotic and his long-running feud with Carole Baskin. Insight on Joe Exotic’s personal life is also brought up on the show and even his attempts at running for public office.

Over 34 million people watched Tiger King in the first 10 days of its premiere and it’s no secret why.

The show is extremely compelling and is great for people who love true crime. 

Premiering at the start of the pandmeic, the show generated lots of attention with memes and even a ‘Savage’ song parody.

If you haven’t watched this eight-episode documentary, you definitely should!

Too Hot to Handle premiered on Netflix in April 2020. 

Fourteen contestants were on the show who were given the task to not have any sexual contact with each other for four weeks.

If they were able to pull it off they would split $100,000. By the end of the season, the prize money went down to $75,000 and the ten remaining contestants split the cash prize.

Too Hot to Handle also became the #1 show on Netflix in late April and while none of the couples that won the show remained together, it’s still worth the watch.
