Yes, Netflix released a new 'Tiger King' episode. Yes, it has new and disturbing details.Netflix executives have repeatedly proven they know what the people want - so Sunday, they released a new episode of "Tiger King." Technically, it was a 40-minute reunion special titled "Tiger King and I," in which Joel McHale - star of NBC's "Community," which just started streaming on Netflix - interviewed some of the subjects from the documentary series-turned-international phenomenon. Naturally, the special is currently the most-watched program on Netflix in the United States, even without appearances from stars Joe Exotic and Carole Baskin. (Joe is serving a 22-year prison sentence for a murder-for-hire plot and killing five tigers. Carole is furious about her portrayal in series.) Instead, eight of the "supporting" cast members shared how the documentary changed their lives; how they really feel about Joe; and more disturbing things they saw go on behind the scenes at the Greater Wynnewood Exotic Animal Park in Oklahoma. (There are more graphic descriptions of animal abuse in the special than there were in the series.)

"I'm just a [regular] guy," he said, using spicier language, and admitted he hasn't even watched the documentary. How he feels about Joe: He said he's still upset by the fact that Joe put down tigers who weren't sick or old, and has no sympathy for him in prison: "He's gonna die in there, so good riddance." The "Did he really just say that?" quote: "People ask, 'Does it hurt?' It's like, yeah, yeah, it hurts. Until it stops, then you're good," he...
