The "Mike Tyson Mysteries" trailer

This could be the greatest tv show in the history of electrons.

'Mike Tyson Mysteries' looks like Scooby-Doo on hallucinogens

Wow.

Is Mike Tyson that engaging that people really want to see him? Or is he just a train wreck waiting to happen and people will watch just to see the explosion? I've seen him a few times on TV, and even though he seems remorseful for a lot of the foolish stuff he's done, he still seems like his sitting on top of a powderkeg waiting for the fuse to be set off.

This just seems so odd and wrong to me:

From what I understand, his one man show on Broadway (yes, you read that correctly ) was rather compelling and well-received.

I saw it on HBO on demand few months ago. It was pretty good. It's still available on HBOGO and it's called Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth.

I saw bits and pieces of it. I still find him a bit creepy.

WTH?!? Were these people on drugs when they came up with this? That preview was way out there.

If I had seen just the trailer i would have thought it was some kind of a joke.

I laughed three or four times. That's not bad for a 15 minute show.

I liked it. It's Scooby Doo meets The Venture Brothers while on LSD.

I wonder how much of the comedy was intentional, and how much was stuff they just added after the first table read on account of Mike being Mike.

Like, did they put the chupacabra jokes in only after they realized Mike couldn't pronounce "chupacabra"?

I just remembered something I found odd... in the show they said the word "sh*t" multiple times, completely uncensored, but then when Mike said "I'm going to kick the sh*t out of that chupacabra. That's something I haven't kicked the sh*t out of yet.", they bleeped the two sh*ts.

They've alluded to this several times on "Conan" -- apparently the Turner standards and practices department has issues with the S-word when it could be possibly interpreted as being in a literal scatological context (thus, it's bleeped when it's used as "I'm going to kick that chupacabra so hard it will defecate"), but it's okay to use as a milder metaphor. I don't envy the Turner censors who actually have to enforce that guideline.

Okay, that makes sense. IIRC, the unbleeped instances were situations where "sh*t" was being used as a substitute for "stuff", as in "I read books and sh*t."

Please, please, have shots of Tyson singing at the end of each episode. I'd watch it just for that.

This might be the stupidest show on tv but it makes me laugh.

I just started getting into this show -- it's actually hyper-literary and very, very funny.
