It's particularly masterly of
American Crime Story
to maintain so much tension, even though audiences doubtless know the OJ Simpson story inside out. After all, we watched it as it went out, live, more than 20 years ago.
This episode is a real thriller, when Simpson's bloodied gloves, found at the scene of the double murder, are entered as evidence. And he tries them on in court, in front of the jury. We know the outcome, and we know it was a turning point in the case. Yet it's still a heart-thumping moment as Simpson (Cuba Gooding Jr) is asked, as if he's a tarnished Cinderella, to see if they fit.
As far-fetched speculations and conspiracy theories distract from the actual facts of the case, detectives work closely with the prosecutors to find flashier evidence for the jury, while Robert Shapiro triggers divisions in the defence team, upsetting their client in the process. Cuba Gooding Jr and John Travolta star.
