I'm watching. I'll continue. It's no American Horror Story. Probably because I know how it's going to end. I just feel like they make some of the shit up to make it interesting.

Watched the pilot today for OJ. I never realized there was so much evidence against him or that he almost took his own life (in Kim Kardashians bedroom).

We've seen 2 episodes and I've learned so much already. I thought it was OJ driving his own Ford Bronco, but it was his friend driving his own Bronco (that he bought because he wanted to be like OJ). I also didn't know OJ had a gun to his head the entire time in the back seat. Also, it wasn't so much a police chase as a forced escort to get him home.

I could do without all the throwaway kid Kardashian scenes in every episode (3 so far). The only purpose of the scenes are to poke fun of the family it seems. Don't get me wrong, I think those people are horrible and are famous just for being famous, but I don't need a scene of the sisters as preteens talking about how great it is to be on TV and their dad lecturing them about having morals and being good people, not just wanting to be celebrities.

I feel so bad for the lead persecutor, Marcia Clark. Everyone was so incredibly sexist 20 years ago. Her changing her hairstyle got more media coverage than OJ being guilty, and then an ex-husband released topless pictures of her from like 15 years ago. I'm glad she can look back on these events and kind of laugh it off, but man, they were brutal to her.

Also, there was never a real romance between her and her partner.

I think people are sexier now, but it might just be a generational preference.

I think the new season starts soon. I haven't watched a single episode of this show but I know it is popular. Podcast dudes said this season looked extra creepy.

Edit: a quick Google shows it starts tonight and that very little is known about this season. They didn't want anyone to know the cast or theme.

I saw that in the Skimm this morning! I like that these are cases I've heard of, but was too young when they happened to care about the details. Should be an interesting season.

I stopped reading The Skimm....I kept up for a few months though!

I think this will be the lineup?
Season 2 - Hurrican Katrina
Season 3 - Versace Murder (idk what this is)
Season 4 - Bill Clinton-Monica Lewinsky
