REVIEW: The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story Is a Superb, True Crime Must-See

Originally posted 02/02/2016 10:00PM

There are media frenzies … and there are media frenzies.

You can make a similar distinction when discussing legal circuses and celebrity meltdowns. The O.J. Simpson murder trial, a public narrative that delivered a series of sensational jolts from start to finish, consistently falls into the second camp. Everything veers to the right side of the ellipses – the sensational side, the side that goes too far, almost to the improbable.

The case, which ended with the acquittal of Simpson on two counts of murder, was referred to as "The Trial of the Century" – the last one – and within the first hour of FX's superb The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story, you'll remember why. Or, if you weren't around for the white Bronco highway chase, Kato Kaelin (no, that's not the name of a minor character in the new Star Wars) or the astonishing moment when the glove didn't fit, you'll learn why.

There are trials of the century … and there are trials of the century.

What John Travolta Learned from Playing Robert Shapiro in American Crime Story: 'Every Week There Was Something New'

Originally posted 01/18/2016 12:30PM

John Travolta's portrayal of Robert Shapiro in the upcoming FX series American Crime Story: The People vs, O.J. Simpson was not just an eye-opener, but also a learning experience.

"Every week there was something new," Travolta, 61, exclusively told PEOPLE during the FX Winter Television Critics Association Press Tour on Saturday in Pasadena, California. "For me, it was the legal system and the judicial system. I didn't realize how they were so designed for themselves and not really for the humanities for for fairness, but how clever can you be to work the system. That was interesting to me as an overall thing. And also the antics and the egocentric things that were happening between the lawyers was very interesting insight."

What jumps to mind when you hear the phrase "Quentin Tarantino movie"? Hyperviolence? A bunch of different B-movies pastiched into something new? A lot of dialogue with a lot of bad language? That one "F" word in particular?
