    Watched the pilot and tried to watch episode 2 but couldn't finish it. Plays a bit like a reality competition show, except you get the sense that the contestants care less about the stakes than the producers. The pigeon racing scene just doesn't seem all that competitive. It's more like watching a bunch of guys who love raising birds as opposed to racing them. The other problem is that the activity of pigeon racing/raising in itself is really boring. They eat, they poo, they fly.
    However the major let down is Iron Mike himself. While it's nice to see that he's turned into a nice normal middle-aged man, it unfortunately doesn't make for very good television. Additionally, in 1.5 episodes, his interaction with the birds is rather limited. Most of the raising, and racing for that matter, is done by his team of hired bird experts who essentially run the whole show. Mike appears to simply finance the operation and lend his enthusiasm every so often. Not recommended.

    There's not a current star among them, but this wacky lineup could provide the biggest and brightest series of Celeb Appren train wrecks ever. Alas, as usual, the episodes of the show, are flabbier than Meat Loaf ever was, two long hours long.

    It would make an interesting documentary even without Mr. Tyson. With him, it becomes a personal test for the viewer.

    Serenity arrives in surprising ways. Whether Mike makes it in this arena or not, Taking on Tyson suggests he's already won his toughest battle.
