The People v. O. J. Simpson is now on Netflix!

I was eight years old during the O.J. Simpson trial. So I remember it, but I didn’t really know the  specifics or really cared at the time. When it popped up on my Netflix recommendations recently, I immediately dove in: “alright it’s been 22 years dammit, it’s time to learn the details of this thing.” I watched it with my IRL boyfriend and we were immediately hooked. We had our laptops open the entire series marathon: looking up details on the people involved, verifying quotes and going “are you KIDDING me” during the twists. I think the timing is right for a show like this: 90s nostalgia hasn’t gotten old yet, some people might need a reminder as to why the Kardashians are famous, Black Lives Matter is bringing up police brutality issues to the forefront again, and O.J. is ELLIGIBLE FOR PAROLE THIS YEAR. (Sidebar: Only a man who got away with murder could think he could get away with robbing a Las Vegas hotel). The casting and writing were both near perfect. Anyway I won’t ruin the ending for you! #watchit
