Dave's rating of the film American Crime Story: The People V. OJ Simpson

As an attorney, a lot of legal dramas are too much for me to stomach. The genius of this adaptation of the OJ story is, at least to me, that the actual in-the-courtroom action (with exceptions) is nowhere near as interesting as the machinations going on around the trial. I was young when these events went down, but this does seem to capture the time and place quite well.
