A Show You Need To Watch

American-crime-story-the-people-vs-oj-simpsonIf you’re not watching The People vs. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story on FX, you’re missing out. As John said, “It’s a good thing this isn’t a Netflix show because we would have binge watched the entire limited series already.”

Here is the trailer. Only two episodes have aired, so catch up now!

FXNOW describes the show as “A limited series that takes you inside the O.J. Simpson trial with a riveting look at the legal teams battling to convict or acquit the football legend of double homicide. Based on the book The Run of His Life: The People v. O.J. Simpson by Jeffrey Toobin, it explores the chaotic behind-the-scenes dealings and maneuvering on both sides of the court, and how a combination of prosecution overconfidence, defense shrewdness, and the LAPD’s history with the city’s African-American community gave a jury what it needed: reasonable doubt.”

Although I was only in elementary school when the O.J. trial was going on (I remember the school’s custodian stopping by my teacher’s classroom and announcing “Not Guilty!”), John remembers more of the main events.

The show is well done, and it keeps my attention. The fact that it’s real, blows my mind. I’m learning a lot! I watched an interview with John Travolta, who plays Robert Shapiro (One of O.J.’s lawyers), and Travolta said he learned a lot through this show, too. There were many elements the media never shared with the public, and Travolta is curious if people will have the same verdict as they did before the show.

Tune in so we can discuss.

  1. set to record! it’s weird because the case has come up in the RHOBH story line this season.

    Bachelor update- previews show he says “I love you” to two girls and they want us to believe he sends one home only to realize that she’s the one he wants and he calls her back. i’m sure it’s some crafty editing to make us believe that. he’s still amazing and all the girls left are really great (except i really don’t see him with one of them, so when he drops to 4 or 5, he’s going to have a rough time).
