    First off, inside the slipsleeve the Bluray came with was covered in factual dates of the real events, so that was awesome! Btw, the bluray was only $20. I was pumped. The cast is supurb in the retelling of the infamous OJ Simpson trial and murders that preceeded it. They, like in realiry, were overshadowed by the magnitude of his celebrity status. The press and defense team turned it into an LA police racial prejudice move...but, you come to your own conclusions. Stand outs from: Sarah Paulson as Marcia. I mean, come on, right? Perfect casting. David Schwimmer as OJs friend and late Kardashian father. Selma Blair as Kris Kardashian. Watch this series,. You won't regret it.

    I'd seen some of the actors on talk shows, discussing this movie, and had heard from others who'd seen it that it was good - and then it won a Golden Globe - and rightly so. I remembered (I thought, vividly) the whole OJ Simpson arrest and trial, but some of it I'd remembered wrong and other pieces I'd never known. Watching these actors play their real-life characters was like watching it on the news. It was so true-to-life and we all found it so interesting and, as I mentioned earlier, well done. I would recommend this movie to anyone who either doesn't know the story or doesn't remember it well - or even those who do. Very enlightening and so well acted. No over-dramatization or over-acting in this film.

    I still vividly remember all the television coverage and the daily front pages detailing OJ and this horrible crime. THE PEOPLE V OJ SIMPSON brings this all back in a television drama that is first rate. Great storytelling or retelling the story, even though the details are still etched in my memory, but the television drama told the personal side of everyone involved and in a way that the viewers now know exactly everything that happened from seeing those involved, as if we were f;lies on the wall. Too sad that an American hero proved to fall off his pedestal, and in the very worst way. Get the DVD..IT'S AN ABSOLUTE MUST.

    Every once in a while, a series or show appears on television that captivates, mesmerizes, and astonishes you by the brilliance of the writing, the acting, and in every other way. The People vs. OJ Simpson is one such program. Brilliant on a so many levels, it's hard to find flaw with even one scene in this spectacular television event. From Sarah Paulson and Sterling Clarke's out-of-this-world portrayals of the trial prosecution to a master class acting ensemble playing the Defense Team and Defendant to all of the bit parts sprinkled in along the way, this was appointment viewing at its finest. You simply didn't want to miss a minute.

    Fresh Take on an Old Story

    The OJ Simpson trial is a topic that has been looked at and written about ad nauseam over the past two decades. However, the creators of American Crime Story have done what I didn't think was possible...breathe new life into such a widely known story. Just when you think you have heard it all, you watch this and gain a whole new sense of understanding from one of the many aspects of such a circus moment in history. The acting is superb, the writing is smart and well done and the entire series itself is a work of art. Very well done and highly recommended.

    Like many of you, I was binge watching the actual broadcasted trial when it made headlines like it was the first reality show outside of The Louds on PBS' American Family, but the OJ experience I had back then wasn't anything like this. You are there for the back room plotting, the survivors' personal evolution, the betrayals and the back stabbings and, yes, courtroom romances AND bullying. This is not the mockumentary you thought it would be. Not at all. It earned the record breaking emmies it received. You need to experience this circus. Consider yourself briefed.

    This series is captivating from the first episode to the very last minute. We all know (or think we know) the story at hand but this series gives you a viewpoint that most people would never quite comprehend until you watch. The actors involved consume you in the portrayal of their respective rolls. I truly never burned through so many episodes in such a short period of time. After having watched this twice I can only say that it is well worth the price and time spent.

    Was bummed to find that FX did not allow streaming of this series after it ran its course on cable. Swung into Best Buy and got the season on DVD for under $15. Much more affordable than purchasing the digital version through other outlets. All in all a great retelling of the infamous OJ Simpson trial. I was in grade school whenever this was happening, so it was fascinating to revisit the story as an adult. Highly recommend purchasing if you were alive when this went down!
