Joe vs. Carole (Peacock) - S: Kate McKinnon, John Cameron Mitchell - premieres 3/3/22

JOE vs CAROLE is streaming March 3rd on Peacock

Synopsis: JOE vs CAROLE is a scripted adaptation of the 2020 Wondery podcast “Joe Exotic: Tiger King,” hosted and reported by Robert Moor. The limited series will center on Carole Baskin, a big cat enthusiast, who learns that fellow exotic animal lover Joe “Exotic” Schreibvogel is breeding and using his big cats for profit. She sets out to shut down his venture, inciting a quickly escalating rivalry. But Carole has a checkered past of her own and when the claws come out, Joe will stop at nothing to expose what he sees as her hypocrisy. The results prove dangerous.

So basically more of Kate McKinnon mugging to the camera. It's bad enough to watch on SNL. Might watch for Kyle MacLachlan but I can't image his part is that big.

Am I supposed to know who John Cameron Mitchell is?

And I agree Kate can only seem to play parts like they're SNL sketches. Kristen Wiig would have knocked this one out of the park.

Never heard of Hedwig and the Angry Inch?

I don’t understand statements like that.

Wow, all of the episodes are live, too. Since I have ZERO interest in the Netflix documentary this is the only way I will watch anything about that train wreck. JCM is awesome and Hedwig and the Angry Inch is my favorite musical of all time.

Watching this without having seen the documentary seems like a gigantic waste of time.

I refuse to watch the documentary. It's one hot mess of a fucking rabbit hole I don't want to go through. I'll settle for this dramatization over the real thing since I actually like the people in Joe vs. Carole.

Same. then again, I don't see me watching Kate in much either, she is about as overripe as the whole Tiger King thing.

Just finished this and it was pretty cool. JCM and McKinnon were great but Kyle McLachlan as Carole Baskin's devoted husband was phenomenal. He's getting an Emmy nomination for sure. Oh, and one of the most hysterical appearances of the show was that of William Fichtner - playing a producer past his prime - had me rolling.

This is beyond awful. I did watch the Netflix series which I enjoyed for what it was, over the top insanity you couldn't turn away from. This show somehow tones all of the insanity down and makes it boring. Boring and bad. If you watched Tiger King there is no reason to watch this all. I'm also not one to ever complain about CGI. I'm usually pretty forgiving about that. But the CGI for the animals is not good. There's a scene where Carole pets one and the shadow and fur movement is moving the polar opposite way it should. Just real jarring and cheap.

The casting of JCM is like...RDJ as Tony Stark/Iron Man Level casting. That said, it's on Peacock so not sure I'll see it.

I enjoyed the documentary. This looks horrible but I'll give it a shot.

I finished this up. There was no need for this, the documentary was a million times better, and much of this was repetitive of the doc. They did dive more into Carole's past, although not sure how much of it was dramatized. I thought Brian Van Holt was very good in this.
I've stopped watching SNL, but Kate seems to be the same character all the time.
I've never seen Hedwig (heard of it), so no idea who this guy was either.
