American Crime Story read us the verdict for the finale and, even though we already knew the outcome, it was still one hell of an epic hour of television. This series has done a remarkable job delivering the trial of the century and I especially loved watching how everyone reacted to one of the most watched verdicts of all time.
The final episode of the season took us through the closing arguments, including that infamous quote about the glove from Johnny Cochran, but I think it’s safe to say that the evidence as a whole points to one man and that man is OJ Simpson. I really don’t understand why this jury was so stupid and I can’t even believe that after such a long trial, the jury only took FOUR FUCKING HOURS to reach a verdict. It’s almost like they didn’t give a fuck either way and for that, they are clearly all idiots.
We also checked in with everyone after the verdict was read and it was truly emotional watching the prosecution and the victim’s families deal with the impact of the verdict. Even OJ is going to have problems now that more than half of the population thinks he’s a murderer.
Overall, this series was the perfect way to relive one of the world’s most famous murder trials. I still can’t get over the fact that there was so much I didn’t know from this case. Everything that was presented to us was mind-blowing in every way and I think we can all agree that American Crime Story is here to stay. With every season focusing on a new crime, the possibilities are endless and I can’t wait to see where we’re going next season (assuming ACS will be renewed).
Now let’s all cancel our plans since the jury has already reached a verdict and enjoy the review, fellow OJ fans!
