The People vs. O.J. Simpson
Posted by Sam on February 3, 2016
I was just a little guy when the O.J. Simpson trial actually happened, and without researching it, I can tell you what I think I know.
- The police tried to arrest O.J. for killing his wife.
- He went on an infamous chase in a white bronco.
- They caught him and took him to trial for murder.
- He was found innocent even though everyone knew he did it.
- He kind of admitted that he did it?
- He stole some sports memorabilia and is now in jail for like another 30 years.
That’s what I know about O.J.’s legal troubles.
Critics love The People vs. O.J. Simpson. At the moment it has a 9.3/10 from 329 votes on IMDB. The first episode aired last night on FX.
If I knew the ending to Making a Murderer, I would have just Google’d the rest and not watched the series. That logic applies here too. What’s the incentive for me to watch this series if I already know the ending?
I don’t doubt it’s well done, but it loses its allure when there’s no shock factor. I sat through 10 hours of Making a Murder excited as hell to find out the ending. I’m not wasting 10 hours to watch this when the end-result is known.
Am I wrong here? Will the majority of sports fans tune in to this?
