Found the first episode online earlier today. Gonna check it out tomorrow.

 

Find it kinda funny that David Schwimmer is playing Robert Kardashian. Dude will forever be the weirdo Ross from "Friends" to me :laughing:

Pretty good. The guy playing Johnny cochren is spot on. Not too sold on Cuba Travolta or schwimmer. Cuba is so small compared to OJ. Has anyone read the book?

I thought Cuba was pretty small also, but his performance was enough for me to forget that.

I thought it was corny how they made every effort to acknowledge the Kardashians. We get it, they knew OJ.

Other than that, I was pretty much glued to the screen for all of the episode. It was really good...I encourage people to check it out.

Saw it. Usually love Travolta, but something about his role is very distracting.

 

Liked the pacing and other characters. But yeah, everyone is bigger than Cuba. Travolta, the cops, his daughter, his mom, Nicole Brown, everyone!

Praying for  1. Some Cohesion (Ill fitting parts with young bucks, new guys, and those playing for next contracts may muck things up all season) 2. Better Coaching, No More Tanking (Last season was more of the latter but not sure how much of the former we can count on. Walton with something to prove this season as much as any Laker player) 3. Rookie Watch (Hoping Lonzo outshines his daddy (ROTY??), and Kuzma finds minutes and makes a push for all rook 2nd team)

READY FOR SEASON!!!

Travoltas face was distracting. The makeup was a little too much. I heard a rumor episode 8 is from the jury perspective. That will be interesting.

Didn't new evidence come up recently that pointed to OJ's oldest son doing it and OJ implicating himself to protect him?

I just watched the first episode. Like the reviews said, very good acting, other than Travolta.
Kardashians were heavily involved, despite their recent fame.
How that case was lost is mind blowing.
I can remember asking permission to hear the verdict while at work. I can remember the smile on my black co-worker's faces when I announced "not guilty", as opposed to the disappointment on whites faces.
There was a lot of race implications in that case. I liked that they showed the riots at the start.

Looks like all the great reviews including from Rotten Tomatoes and even more strict metacritic are well deserved. Wanted to see the second episode immediately. Pacing was pretty good too. Great solid acting, flow, and rhythm kept me thoroughly engaged throughout. Not really a dull moment that I can remember.

I don't know what was up with the makeup, but it made him look like a wax figure or someone who had too much Botox. That, or on the brink of looking like John Boehner.

Solid again, ending left me wanting more. again. Not feeling Cuba for this role. Cutty from the Wire would've killed. I forgot AC had a white bronco just like OJ. Isn't that fishy. Never understood why dude drove OJ. He probably helped. And Robert Kardashian was like he was in love with OJ.

I know they were good friends, but this 2nd episode totally made it look like OJ and Robert Kardashian had some major bromance going on lol

There are still times when I just have to accept getting used to David S. playing Bob. That goofy looking face & look in his eyes at times can kinda throw you off, but it is what it is. Just try to stay focused on the acting more than the appearance I suppose. 

 

Enjoyed the first episode more by a lot, but that's not to say the second was terrible or anything. Just more variety obviously in the first. Still looking forward to the rest.

So I'm all caught up now. Going to watch tonight's episode in a little bit, but it's really starting to pick up. I'm excited to see how they portray the trial. It has me doing some research and watching videos of the actual events.

Also decided to check out the O.J. "Confessional" book (the author stated that this was the only way he'd confess) where he details the murder scene "if" he did it. Man, it's really chilling. Some stuff that only the killer would know. Highly recommend that for anyone interested or anyone who needs more convincing he's guilty...chapter 6 is the good stuff, I'm sure you can find it on google as I did (sorry for the laziness).
