If the name wasn't already taken they should have called this "How to Get Away With Murder".
The criminal justice system is unfortunately so racist toward non-Caucasians and biased towards the rich who are typically Caucasian that these idiotic jurors thought they could get even with the criminal justice system by letting a murder walk free.
As for the show, it is chillingly good and well acted. The dramatic liberties they've taken with the truth aren't so far stretched, and for the most part, they have stuck with the truth. A good watch, especially for those who saw the drama play out in real life on TV.

S01 3.5 Stars

American Crime Story depicts historical criminal history in America. Like "American Horror Story" the show will be changing subjects season to season hopefully keeping much of the same cast. The cast in the first season was tremendous, the script is revealing but this period drama is a little slow. I'm interested to see what crimes they will tackle in the future.

I'm Brazilian and was 4 when this all happened, so I had no real experience with the case. I felt like it gave me an overall look at it at the same time it kept me anxious for every single episode. The cast is unbelievably great!

When I first heard about the theme of the first season I was wondering how they thought they could still add something to this over-analysed case but was absolutely astonished by the portrayal of all of the characters. Of course I expected Sarah Paulson to absolutely naile it but I feel like everyone did a magnificent job on this show. I loved seeing different aspects of the story and how it didn't push me into one direction as it leaves the viewer to decide what to make of it all. It is really worth watching and an interesting take on the case.

I really enjoyed the premise of the show and the concept of showing social injustices through major events like the trial of O.J. Simpson. What bothered me with the show is that it was too long and slow to my taste. I had to force myself to finish and would have preferred shorter episodes.

I've always been fascinated with the OJ trial. I really liked this adaptation of the book, and look forward to future 'Crime Stories'.

1st season, about OJ Simpson, was exactly as expected. 2nd season about Versace gave info I was not aware of. They do take some creative liberties with the facts, but do come close to the real occurrences.

Season one was absolutely incredible. Amazing cast and perfect casting for each role. Impressive to watch comparison from the original footing to the screenplay.
Season two not as good. It was a little bit slow paced and overplayed by actors. Still watchable, but not nearly as good as the first season.

This show is different from other crime dramas on television. Each season will depict a different historical criminal case in America. The first season was outstanding with a top notch cast. I am looking forward to seeing what the next season brings.
