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.

[YOUTUBE "KFQjp43NW_8"] Matthew Morrison and Jane Lynch have reunited to give fans the gift of song this holiday season.

Lynch tells PEOPLE of her former Glee costar: "We have our own lovely way of working together."

So when the opportunity presented itself for the 55-year-old to select a singing partner for Febreze's 12 Stinks of Christmas campaign, she didn't think twice about re-teaming with the one-time Will Schuester to her Sue Sylvester – but just because the two are happy to be paired up again doesn't mean they miss the good old days on Glee.
