The emergence of new social media star O.J. Simpson, and the now wait for his eventual arrest, has prompted me to rewatch the mini-series The People Vs. O.J. Simpson.
It's been a while since I have seen it, but I decided to watch it again pretending not to know much about the case an examining key details of it and how they affected the case. Here we go, Episode 1.
Watching this show again, I realize how much I forgot or simply missed, so in many ways it feels like I am watching this for the first time. Meeting Cuba Gooding as the Juice and Ross Geller as Robert Kardashian was a big shock the first time, but the econd time made more sense.
Maybe because we just saw Cuba Gooding in police custody. Too Soon?
As someone who didn't expereince the legend that was O.J., looking at this case makes me wonder how the hell he ever got off, but then again I'm like 99% of America probably.
The blood at his house, in the Bronco. His blood at the scene. Glove at O.J.'s. Eye witness testimony. I mean talk about dead to rights.
What is truly missing in this mini-series, and maybe O.J. will enlighten us on twitter soon, is the closed door information. What was actually being said, was a murder weapon being carried out by Robert Kardashian.
I think there would just be a sense of closure to hearing O.J. say I did it finally, but I still think overall this just seems to paint O.J. as crazy and delusional. I mean, what's with the junkie living on O.J.'s property?
Then you have John Travolta and O.J. trying to kill himself, I can't imagine how any of them lived through this whole experience.
This is a really entertaining series, but I can't tell if it is because of the subject matter, or it's just a well done project.
Anyways, on to the infamous car chase.
