Tonight the much anticipated ten episode FX series on the trial of O.J. Simpson began. I thought I’d give my thoughts briefly and give everyone a place to talk about the show.
My first reaction is that the acting is horrible. Cuba Gooding Jr. is miscast in this role. He’s way too small for the role and for some reason he has decided to adopt a very obnoxious whiney voice. It’s extremely distracting to me. John Travolta also sucks as Bob Shapiro. I’m not thrilled with David Schwimmer as Kardashian either. There is some really bad acting on this show.
The female actors are great though. Especially Sarah Paulson as Marcia Clark. It looks like Connie Britton is going to do a hilarious Faye Resnick. The person playing Kris Kardashian is rather amusing as well.
I watched every second of the trial and read Marcia Clark and Christopher Darden’s books and some others. I’m looking forward to the dynamic between those two.
I think the guy playing Johnny Cochran is great and the guy playing Kato Kaetlin is spot on.
I’m ready to get to the trial. Where were Judge Ito’s hourglasses in the previews? They have to include those, right?
Who watched and what did you think?
