If you thought "Tropic Thunder" was the funniest movie of the year and that everything Will Ferrell touches makes you laugh until you squirt Diet Pepsi out of your nose, then you will love Eastbound & Down.
Taking on Tyson is only a six-part series, but, in that limited time, this heartwarming, gorgeously filmed show reveals a terrifying man who has not just grown up, but grown into someone you now might want to know.
Weirdly enough, every one of tonight's wannabe photos looks better than any photo of any of those pretty-but-average giantesses who "cycled" through Tyra Land before.... The most interesting women are the most trouble, of course.
To love the series, it helps to be exactly Spike TV's target market - a young guy who, when he can't be out drinking beer and throwing up with his friends, loves nothing more than to sit in front of a giant-screen TV doing all of the above.
What the series gains this season by giving us more history and more compelling storylines, it loses by repeating some of its, er, epic mistakes. Again, no battle scenes - some of the most important in all of history - are shown.
