    I'm watching the 3rd episode now. The word bizarre is how I would describe it at this time.

    Disgusting, ridiculous and totally unneccesary.

    Car-crash cavalcade of backwoods larceny, and everyone portrayed ranges from charismatic misfit to flat-out evil.

    The big cats are a secondary prop to the portrayal of just about everything vile and corrupt humans can conjure up. Skip it...be careful little eyes what you see.

    My wife and some of her girlfriends are watching it - tonight they are planning a virtual / zoom cocktail hour to talk about the show.

    My take on what I’ve seen - a very well-produced show about some of the trashiest vilest people you could imagine.

    Just finished watching it. It’s a very-well-crafted documentary. The filmmakers definitely know their craft.

    The subjects of the documentary prove the adage that truth is stranger than fiction. The “plot” is too far fetched to have been a believable movie. It’s equal parts hilarious and horrifying (often both at the same time).

    I haven’t seen the trailer or Duck Dynasty. It’s definitely a documentary. There are big doses of phoniness since most of the main characters are running various levels of cons, but it’s not like “reality” shows where the whole premise is phony. Most of the supporting characters come across as genuine oddballs while the main characters are genuine sociopaths.

    I’m watching it. Remember when the circus would come to town, and there were “freak shows”? This is the digital version of visiting one.

    I didn't find it very entertaining, to be honest. Had to bail before it really started to spiral out of control. Disturbed people doing disturbing things doesn't capture my interest or imagination.

    I’ve watched two episodes. Bizarre sums it up. There are some beautiful cats in the show, it’s a shame.

    I was in earshot while my wife was watching it and got sucked in. Every episode just gets more and more insane. I had to Google search to see if it was a real story. Turns out it is, and I ended up 1. hating everyone in the series by the end 2. wishing I had those hours of my life back.

    If you want to be amazed by the bananas crazy humanity is capable of and have massive quarantine free time, go for it.

    You'll have to keep reminding yourself that these are real people.
