I have reviewed Mike Tyson’s strange new animated television show, Mike Tyson Mysteries, for PJ Media. My verdict is that Tyson has so much baggage from his past that anything with which he’s involved is tinged with the bizarreness of his life:
Seeing Tyson these days, even an unsympathetic onlooker can’t deny that he has mellowed. He claims his wild days are behind him—the days of entering the news cycle periodically for drug- and violence-related arrests.

The interviews he grants nowadays reveal an aging Tyson coming to terms with decades’ worth of shameful behavior. His tone is pensive and pleasant: none of the classic threats or vulgarities. It is like a newly sober man watching a video of his embarrassing life played back to him. But is anyone else watching? Does anyone care anymore?
