97% on Rotten Tomatoes, 2 Golden Globes and 35 other awards. You’ll be hooked.

Netflix have just added the superb ‘The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story’ to their library and if you haven’t seen it already, we strongly urge you to do so.

Quite simply put, it’s one of the best TV shows in recent memory.

The mini-series is based on Jeffrey Toobin’s book The Run of His Life: The People v. O.J. Simpson and focuses on the lawyers on the both sides of the case against O.J. Simpson (Cuba Gooding, Jr.) with John Travolta, Sarah Paulson, David Schwimmer and Courtney Vance all co-starring.

If you love shows about crime then you’re in for a treat because this mini-series is remarkably immersive and detailed, but most importantly, it’s well acted.

Spread across various categories, Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski’s adaptation has already won awards at the Golden Globes, Primetime Emmys, Screen Actors Guild Awards, Critics Choice Awards and countless other ceremonies.

In their review, Variety stated that it’s ‘arresting from the get-go, the performances in this limited series are almost uniformly superb.’

The website created by renowned critic Roger Ebert stated that ‘overall, this is not a piece designed to “expose” the truth behind the OJ Simpson case. It’s more about how exposed the case was in the first place. It’s also just flat-out entertaining television, filled with strong performances from top to bottom and razor-sharp writing.’

If you’re looking for something to binge on, this is just the thing for you.

We’re going to give you one piece of advice though, clear your schedule because ‘The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story’ is addictive.

If you won’t take our word for it, maybe these people can convince you.
