Mr. Tyson is a very difficult interview in the best of times.
Back in the day he most certainly could be but these days he's so chilled and at peace with himeself.

He has an interview show on YouTube called "Hotboxin' with Mike Tyson" which is definitely worth a look. Mike comes across as a laid back dude who's smart and funny, the banter is top class. He's had a wide variety of guests on there Including William Shatner, comedian Bill Burr, Eminem and of course lots of boxers. Current heavyweight champ Tyson Fury and Mike's old foe Evander Holyfield are a couple of standout episodes.

Just watched another ESPN 30 FOR 30 documentary on Disney+ (I'm loving these) called "NO MA'S".

It's about Roberto Durán and Sugar Ray Leonard's infamous 1980 showdown. They spend quite a bit of the film covering the incredible first fight as well as their 2nd meeting.

Both fighters are interviewed and actually meet up at the end so Leonard can ask Durán why he really gave up.
One thing this documentary makes clear is Sugar Ray is a total class act whereas Roberto Durán was one crazy motherfucker. They're both a pair of absolute legends though.

Anyone interested in boxing will enjoy it.
5/5

Watching S2 of The Bay. 5/5, on Britbox. It is set in Morecambe, and the following came from WikI:

"Morecambe and the neighbouring village of Heysham are the setting of the Cthulhu Mythos novel The Weird Shadow over Morecambe, published by the writer Edmund Glasby in 2014.[36] The title of the book is a reference to H.P. Lovecraft's story "The Shadow over Innsmouth", which is also set in a seaside town."

If you have never seen it ' All Creatures great and small' a classic series is having a re run on BBC Iplayer. Set in the 1950's made in the 1970's about a North Yorkshire Veterinary Practice.Lots of pipe action, drinking ale and smoking in pubs ,classic cars .Essential viewing for anyone thinking of becoming a veternarian or an actor as you see a young actor playing a Vet, sticking his arm up the backside of a cow/sheep/horse, having a rummage no special effects here. Also great acting 5/5

Miracle In Cell No. 7 (The newer Turkish version.)

Very honestly it made me cry and I couldn't stop hugging my daughter afterwards.

(Edit to say 4.5 out of 5 stars. But that may just be because I'm a father of a little girl.)

Warning: plot spoilers in the link below.
