At the beginning of new docuseries “Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness,” a strip club proprietor tells the camera, “The big cat people are backstabbing pieces of s**t.”

The statement sounds both like nonsense and hyperbole.  By the end of the seven-part series, it turns out to have been a vast understatement.

“Tiger King” unfolds like a wild-eyed hybrid of the popular S-Town podcast and HBO’s “The Jinx,” and follows a protracted feud between Joe Exotic and Carole Baskin, two eccentric big-cat owners that nearly ended in murder.

Riveting, twisted, and occasionally disturbing, the series has become a terribly strange distraction from these strangely terrible times.

Each episode is an invitation: come for the majestic animals, but stay for the meth addicts, cult leaders, and the mystery of the missing millionaire.

“Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness” is available now on Netflix.
