A must-see for anyone who knows this trial
3 November 2018 | by csh-29563See all my reviews

This series had me hooked since the first episode.

Not being born around the time of the O.J Simpson trial, I only heard about it referenced here and there, I never realized the full complexity of this trial until I studied it in American Government. I loved studying this case, and once I heard this series existed, I was excited.

Cuba Gooding Jr. does an amazing job portraying O.J. Simpson. Complete with all the emotions, and dialogue, it's almost a perfect replica. David Schwimmer playing as Robert Kardashian is a great fit. You can see how Robert slowly starts to turn on his best friend as more and more evidence comes out. John Travolta playing as Robert Shapiro does such at great job. You are going to hate this character, and John Travolta makes sure you do. With just the cast list I've listed, you already have a great cast. There's even more big names that fit their characters perfectly.

The constant conflicts in the plot keep the viewer hooked. You have the love tension between the prosecutors, you have the tensions with the media and this case, you have the tensions of the jury being in one of the longest cases in America, and the conflicts of O.J.'s lawyers and who should be lead. It captures you and makes you want to keep watching, even though you know the whole case already.

This whole entire series was incredible, and they even add a "Where Are They Now?" credits scene which really helps out viewers. If you haven't seen this, you need to.
