As somebody who is not American and has never really been exposed to either this case or any of the people involved: is OJ really as dumb as he is presented here? He seems positively mentally disabled in some scenes! That aside, the show is decent enough. The performances are for the biggest part pretty great, everything else ranges from ok to decent enough. I don't find it very compelling, but I think that's down to me not having any prior ties to the story: I'm enjoying it as if it were pure fiction rather than a fictionalized account of reality. And it sure as hell is crazy enough to pass for fiction, mostly due to the ridiculously broken American legal system.

Sarah Paulson and Courtney B Vance will be up for Emmys. Great acting and somehow compelling even though we all know what happens.

avatar

Not quite as dramatic as the real case - but almost! Excellent writing and casting.

avatar

For me this was great tv show that showed just how the US audience was captivated by all this drama unfolding, myself not being american knows very little about>thankfully! This show thou is a must and clearly demonstrates artfully imo the personal and professional struggles of this epic true story of the people involved. Great tv

avatar

this series is phenomenal! so good! perfect casting and amazing acting! all of the actors could go for an Emmy's (especially Paulsen, Vance and Swimmer). smart and sharp writing which keeps you intensified all the time! you change sides all the time! best drama so far!

avatar

good show the second season is in development, and it will focus on the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. why would they do a show about Hurricane Katrina when there are plenty of other crime stories in american history like the manson murders, jim jones Jonestown Massacre, jonbenet ramsey, menendez brothers, amy fisher, the zodiac killer, jeffrey dahmer. ETC... come on people.

Penelope Cruz ruined the show. God she is bad.

This series has garnered a lot of award attention, so I sought it out. I remember the original media frenzy around this trial that was played out in our living room. The phenomenon launched Court TV and a bevy of reality court shows. Even though it played out during my time, the series filled in some of the details not so apparent at the time, Excellent teleplay, integrity in the depictions and tone of the piece, and great performances (although I never really saw beyond Cuba Gooding to OJ). It's conclusions are sobering: the power of celebrity, the fear of racial violence, and the sad state of the American judicial system to be so susceptible to petty manipulation. I give it a solid 8.5 (great drama) out of 10.

I found it entertaining, after living through the actual events with the rest of America.

A really entertaining show, just zipped along, pure farce for the most part and very funny! Slightly at odds with the subject matter and you sincerely hope things weren't as black and white as presented (pun intended).. Were the jury really that stupid? I found the sad/emotional scenes involving the victims' families a little disingenuous as the rest played out like a comedy. I agree that the actress playing Marcia was superb. The judge was by far the most likeable character and the only one to come out of the mess with any credit.... Had similarities with the Steven Avery case although OJs lawyers were more successful in alleging a police made conspiracy!

About Me

I am Sophie and this is my website.

A little about me ๐Ÿ‘‹ I am a marketing student in Paris. I love spending afternoons with friends in a cafe or a park.

But more than anything else, I love watching (.. bingingโ€ฆ) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter ๐Ÿ™ˆ

I must have watched hundreds of shows by now, from romance to science-fiction series. Often I like to go back to a show I enjoyed. But I donโ€™t feel like watching it all over againโ€ฆ

I created this website so myself and others could find the best episodes of our favourite shows. As of today, I have about 1,000 shows on the website with votes and rating coming from fans.

Hopefully, you can join me from your sofa and enjoy some nice TV!
