Given that Mike Tyson has spoken out against Hulu’s miniseries Mike and that it has some significant issues, it’s not all that surprising that the streaming network unceremoniously released these eight 30-minute episodes over four weeks. Trevante Rhodes gives an immensely watchable performance as “The Baddest Man on the Planet,” but the series simultaneously covers too much ground and not enough. Each episode covers one bullet point from Tyson’s life (one about his marriage to Robin Givens, one about his rape conviction, etc), but it all stays fairly surface level. Oddly though, that lack of depth makes for an easy, if not particularly enlightening, watch.
