What’s new on Netflix: Editor’s picks

Tiger King 

Tiger King is a seven-episode rollercoaster that doesn’t stop launching off the edge of cliffs and into the land of the bizarre. Billed as the story of Joe Exotic, who describes himself as a gay, gun-toting, polygamist who runs an Oklahoma roadside zoo, Tiger King quickly becomes an examination of the big personalities and questionable operations in America’s big cat industry. —Jenny Zheng
