Last Week's Review: 'The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story' Episode 3, 'The Dream Team': Cash for Trash Opening Statement After three episodes, bam! Here we are in the downtown Los Angeles courtroom where history happened, and the preliminaries are in full swing, including Johnnie Cochran literally splitting hairs over Marcia Clark's request for a hair sample and O.J. Simpson confidently announcing that he is "100 percent not guilty." Meanwhile, both sides are running focus groups to help determine strategy going into jury selection, discovering just how much black women love O.J. (a lot) and dislike Marcia (also a lot). With the pressure on, Marcia brings Christopher Darden (her new nighttime office drinking buddy) on as third chair. For, you know, "the optics." Most importantly, Robert Shapiro begins to find his position as lead attorney on the case slipping, thanks largely to arrogant calls like bluntly »

When you write about entertainment all day every day, you tend to get caught up in minutiae, and it leads to editorial decisions I would call questionable. When you're writing breathless headlines about Pez dispensers, you may be working too hard to find relevance in the irrelevant. Getting hung up on the micro often prevents us from focusing on the macro, but I'd like to take the opportunity to take a step back from time to time to examine 'The Bigger Picture.' I'd like to start by telling you three stories. They're just three totally unrelated stories about going to see movies with people reacting afterwards in ways that are, by any definition, irrational. I can't imagine what might have happened in the last week that would have me reflecting on these incidents, but maybe by the time I've told them, we can figure out some sort of unifying thread. »

Last night, FX aired the third episode of The People V. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story, entitled The Dream Team, which focused on O.J. Simpson's (Cuba Gooding Jr.) powerful legal defense team coming together. Many were quite shocked and surprised when the very last sentence uttered in the episode contained a curse word hardly ever heard on primetime TV. Entertainment Weekly reports that last night's episode may be the first time that "motherf---er" has ever been said on a non-pay channel before midnight.
The last scene of the episode featured Sarah Paulson as prosecutor Marcia Clark going into her backyard in the wee hours of the morning, to read the daily newspaper. On the front page, she finds that the infamous Johnnie L. Cochran (Courtney B. Vance) has joined O.J. Simpson's defense team. Her response to the news was, "Cochran ... motherf-er," as the episode came to end. »
For the second consecutive week, The People V. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story ranked as television's #1-rated show in delivery of Adults 18-49 and Adults 18-34 on Tuesday inclusive of all broadcast networks and basic and premium cable network programs according to The Nielsen Company. The Live+3 delivery for the first two episodes of The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story illustrates the increasing irrelevance and incomplete picture of Live+Same Day ratings compared to the ultimate viewership of an FX original series and most scripted entertainment programs. The series aired its third of 10 episodes, The Dream Team, last night at 10 Pm Et on FX.
The first-run of the second episode of The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story delivered 3.9 million Adults 18-49, an astounding +104% Live+3 ratings increase over its delivery in Live+Same Day. The 1.87 million Adults 18-34 delivery for episode two was equal »
The third episode of FX's The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story hit the mark concerning the case's turn toward the racial component, former case reporter Jim Newton told The Hollywood Reporter. The episode, which aired Tuesday, titled "The Dream Team," illustrated how, considering the evidence, the Los Angeles county district attorney's office felt its case against Simpson was a "slam dunk" before concerns quickly began to arise, said Newton, now a UCLA professor in the communication studies department and editor of the university's Blue Print magazine. "Over in the Da's office, they initially didn't think much

Now everybody knows their name — well, sort of. The episode opens with Robert Kardashian (David Schwimmer) taking his brood to dinner at Chin Chin on Father’s Day. The restaurant is mobbed, but no worries: “You’re Richard Cordovian, the O.J. guy,” gushes the hostess. “You can have whatever table you want.”
The kids are thrilled they don’t have to wait, but Papa Kardashian’s got a lesson to impart about the meaning of fame: “In this family, being a good person and a loyal friend is more important than being famous. Fame is fleeting. It’s hollow. It means nothing at all without a virtuous heart.”
Beyond the obvious implications for the future Kardashians (wink wink), that message threads throughout this hour, »

[Warning: This story contains spoilers from the third episode of American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson.] When it came to assembling O.J. Simpson’s now infamous Dream Team of lawyers, media influence had just as much to do with the actual legal representation selection as the overall racial defense strategy itself. That complex network of decision-making and political players unraveled on Tuesday night’s “The Dream Team” episode of FX's American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson. As Robert Shapiro (John Travolta) sat down with The New Yorker reporter Jeffrey Toobin (Chris Conner) —

American Crime Story is a weird limbo state in their telling of O.J. Simpson story. Everyone knows how the story begins and how it ends and most are even familiar with the big moments of the trial. However, a large portion of the public is not aware of how the prosecution and defense started preparing for trial. It's this time period that American Crime Story focuses in on "The Dream Team."
Obviously, this episode doesn't have the melodramatic and climatic moments of the previous two episodes, but American Crime Story doesn't stop being any less interesting. "The Dream Team" is really nothing more than a lot of people debating and/or flattering one another and basic cable cursing. It's all fascinating though, especially if you're a true crime fan, as American Crime Story gets to explore one of the least known aspects of one of the most famous murder trials ever. »
Forthcoming Starz adaptation, American Gods, has cast its Shadow, and unusually (though perhaps not at all unusually considering Us TV's love of giving limeys American accents), it's gone for a Brit.
Whittle made his name here in the UK on soap Hollyoaks and football drama The Dream Team, before doing a stint in sequins on Strictly Come Dancing then relocating across the Atlantic for Mistresses and the aforementioned The 100.
He'll be playing Shadow Moon, the American Gods lead, who begins Gaiman's novel as a recently released ex-con with a mysterious past and a penchant for coin tricks. When Shadow's path crosses with that of Wednesday, things get seriously weird for him. And we mean seriously. »
