Taking on Tyson 2011
Taking on Tyson: Oh, the paths a life may take. Mike Tyson, the former heavyweight champion, is now the star of Taking on Tyson, a new Animal Planet series that plays off his lifelong love of pigeons.He has raised them since he was a kid; now, for the purposes of this series at least, he wants to race them. (The first punch he ever threw, he says, was at someone who stole and killed one of his birds.)Its a great subject with a great setting -- the rooftops of urban New Jersey and New York -- but it is repeatedly dragged to earth by the hectic conventions of reality television.
