American Crime Story: People v. O.J. Simpson aired on FX in 2016, totaling 10 episodes regarding the murders of Nicole Simpson Brown and Ron Goldman in 1994 and the trial and its verdict of O.J. Simpson that followed in 1995.  Based from the book written by Jeffrey Toobin, The Run of His Life: The People v. O.J. Simpson, this adaptation crime drama brings us into the folds what happened to O.J. Simpson after he was arrested and how it affected those closest to him.  It goes into detail about the main players on his legal team and how they worked to bring a not guilty verdict to their client.  The majority of it involves the courtroom showdown between the defense and the prosecution.  There’s no doubt this trial captured everyone’s attention: the jury selection, witness testimony, cross examination, evidence, and final verdict. There were many who believed he committed the murders and many who did not.  After 25 years, the civil lawsuit filed and won in 1997 by the Brown and Goldman families against O.J. Simpson have yet to be paid in full.  I consider these two families as suffering the most in this along with Nicole’s two children.
