In no way - in no way! - would I call this a Good show. It is not Good. Not with whatever it is Travolta is doing, not with the totally gratuitous Kardashian children name check, not with characters doing hilarious foreshadowing (no way I'm getting on this case says Christopher Darden), not with a hundred other things which seem bordering on parody. (Sarah Paulson's Marcia Clark appears to be in a different much deeper movie with half the scenes cut.) What the show is - it is Amazing, something you can't stop watching thru disbelief, and that's true to the story. This is junk food TV with stunt casting and they had me when Malcolm-Jamal Warner suddenly shows up as AC.
There is no ambiguity to OJ's status; they go out of their way to make it clear all the major characters on both sides either know he did or are in deep denial about it.
seriously though, what is Travolta's deal
The cigarette smoking felt like more dated than the obligatory giant cell phone shots.
Schwimmer is clearly getting paid by each concerned look about what is going on, and he's getting paid so much.
Good, I was worried with all the good reviews I was hearing about it that we were getting an actual Emmy worthy show vs. a schmaltzy cheese fest, which is what I was hoping for. Can't. Wait. (I DVR'd it so will be watching in chunks)

This was tremendous on every level and I won't stand for anyone who dares libel this episode.*
*- Okay, maybe some hyperbole there, but I did think it was awesome. I remember following the trial as a middle schooler (it was on the Today show that my mom watched every morning before I went to school) and I read the book the mini-series is based on. So I guess it's geared toward me, anyway.

Cubs' write-up was so compelling that I was legit excited to see that my wife had recorded this. And it delivered. Terrible in every way but also fantastic. I'm pretty sure this is a Tracy Jordan movie.
