Outstanding!
18 June 2010 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I was born in 1987, so although the OJ Simpson trial was the biggest news scandal growing up, the start of it was a bit before my time. I started watching this by accident and couldn't not turn away from the TV. It basically chronicles the sports world on June 17th 1984, just showing sports clips. There is no independent narrator or direction given, just the news coverage from the day. It is so haunting, how many huge events were going on at the same time. Showing the start of the day, where the New York Rangers are having their celebratory parade and everyone is so happy, and then as the day goes on the mood changes to the NBA finals game being interrupted to show the car chase! The announcers at the NBA game were so flustered. Like Bob Costas, he is still an announcer today and he looked so confused. The addition of stuff from OJ's past also adds to the mysteriousness of the program, watching how he used to be perceived before the murders and afterwards is so insane. I think for most of us it is impossible to think of OJ without thinking of the murders and this show reminds us of how loved he was. I have never seen anything like it, it was magical. Watch it if you can.
