I can't believe I didn't make this connection. On top of everything you've already said, there's also the lawsuit Joe Exotic can't afford without a huge injection of cash and the fire destroying thousands of priceless tapes.

The lack of movies will mean that Oscar will regard all streamable movies as viable candidates. And you know what that means... it's finally time for The Hobbit to take home that Oscar gold!

I know Tiger King is the viral docu-series of the moment, but holy cow if the whole thing doesn't have Tim Heidecker / Neuman vibes.

BTW I suppose it would be too much to read Tiger King as an oblique Trump pastiche (to the extent that the Tim connection isn't enough)?

I think the filmmakers were very deliberately making Trump parallels with his run for governor, plus the lady in Florida has big time Hillary Clinton energy. I've still got two episodes to go but so far the only thing the series is missing is some sort of China Connection.

I've only got 2 episodes left as well, but I'm willing to guess at least one of these animal abusing nutjobs is selling tiger penises to China for medicinal purposes.

Yeah. I don’t know how the guy who seduced straight men into marrying him by getting him hooked on meth was the redeemable guy? The one who kept his workers in dirty trailers and barely paid them?

Keep in mind Trump was saying he was going to run for president in the 2012 election for a while (and had already done so in 2000) so it wasn't Tim predicting it out of nowhere.

Yeah Mr. America connects some plotlines from the Trial to the latest season and Oscar special so it's worth watching. If you aren't already using this, the On Cinema Timeline will help you know the exact order to watch things:
