So far, a great series! It really brings back the memories of that time and the craziness of the whole situation, I was living in Southern California at that time and was glued to the radio during the day at work and watching the recaps at night. Of course I'm sure "accuracy liberties" are being taken for storyline flow, but overall I am impressed by the writing and the actors. I wasn't too sure about some of the actor picks until seeing them in their roles, I think Cuba Gooding was a great pick now. In his portrayal, I can easily 'see' the O.J. that no one saw away from the cameras, the real person falling apart after what he'd done in rage and getting caught doing it! It is just too bad the "perfect storm" of events and mood of the era, the L.A riots and increased (and all these years later, STILL, increased) tensions in regards to the race issue, plus the errors made by many members of the entire prosecution team that let him walk in the end after killing two people. This is one series I'll be buying!

My gosh, this series, so far, is in the caliber of a major motion picture. I will not be surprised if it wins an award or two in the near future. The casting is just amazing. The actors portraying Lance Ito, Chris Darden, Marcia Clark, Johnny Cochran, Bob Kardashian and Bob Shapiro have them all down in appearance and subtleties. The only choice I dislike is in using Cuba Gooding, Jr. as Orenthal J. Gooding Jr. is a top-notch actor, but he's not a good choice to portray Simpson.
