This article is a preview of the Hulu series Mike season 1, episodes 7 and 8, which includes details of the release date and where to watch online.
The Hulu original Mike, which follows the tumultuous career of boxing champion Mike Tyson, has become quite the controversial project over at the streaming service. The boxer, whose life is the central focus of this eight-part mini-series, has distanced himself completely from the production, stating that he wasn’t involved in the process at all and therefore is highly critical of the show. It is quite a bleak and unrelenting portrayal of the man though, one that does not pull any punches whatsoever, which may explain Tyson’s initial reaction to the series, but it is also a deeply moving and fascinating watch all the same.
The fifth episode, titled “Desiree”, focuses on Tyson’s lowest point yet in what was already a troubled and traumatic life to date, where he was sentenced to six years in prison for the rape of 18-year-old Desiree Washington. Episode six, “Jailbird”, has Tyson reflecting on his eventful three year stint behind bars in the Indiana Department of Corrections. While the seventh episode is likely to focus on Tyson’s infamous fight with Evander Holyfield and that notorious bite that would seal Tyson’s fate in the history books, of course, for the wrong reasons.
