The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story is 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.

This is horrible. Schwimmer is horrible, Travolta is ridiculous and Cuba Gooding is just plain bad. I almost keep thinking it's a parody of the trial and not the dramatic biography that it is suppose to be. I love Travolta and Cuba Gooding (normally) but this may be their worse acting yet, neither is right for the role and Schwimmer really just ruins it for me. I really think if they had maybe 3 unknown actors to play these roles, it may have been a bit better. Travolta is trying way too hard to look and behave like Shapiro and it just ruins it for me.
Too much "Kardashian" pushing this. It always amazed me that their claim to fame was because their dad was friends with a murderer. Our wonderful society..... And, I'm not sure if it's Schwimmer's horrible acting or true, but Kardashian basically puts OJ on a pedestal, but why?? What did Kardashian get out of it?? Just the license to say he was friends with OJ Simpson?? Ridiculous.
I am shocked at how many viewers are praising this. I'm watching because of Sarah Paulson and Courtney Vance. They are making it watchable.
