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.

I had high hopes for this series as I believed it would accurately portray to the best of it's ability the story and trial of OJ Simpson. I was only 4 years old when this took place and As a true crime enthusiast, I didn't know much about the true story. So far I'm not impressed. The portrayal and the over hype of the "Kardashians" is tacky and disgusting. It makes me cringe every time one of the Kardashian children is shown in this TV show. They were kids at the time who had no real part in this story. Shame on you Ryan Murphy for using their name to promote a TV show. This show could be great, and I hope out improved and continues to portray accurate true crime stories. For now I'll watch it until I find something better on TV.
