I am sure you know where you were and now are you going to watch the mini-series?

June 17, 1994, was a Friday night. Without question I remember it like it was yesterday. After playing softball, I was out with some friends (R.Z. & K.A.) at a local bar with the Red Sox game in the background. All of a sudden the game was interrupted. The next thing we all knew we were watching (intently) a chase scene that involved O.J. Simpson, a Ford Bronco, and hundreds of police in California. Our bar was a little somber and most everyone couldn’t believe what they were witnessing. I am sure most of the readers recall the night. Well 20+ years later we get to relive it a little bit.

Starting February 4 and continuing for 9 more weeks on FX will be The People v. O.J. Simpson. In my opinion, this show will be very interesting and I am really looking forward to it. I am excited to DVR it every week and then watch the 42 minute show!

The cast is very impressive and includes:

  • Cuba Gooding, Jr. as O. J. Simpson
  • Sarah Paulson as Marcia Clark
  • John Travolta as Robert Shapiro
  • David Schwimmer as Robert Kardashian
  • Courtney B. Vance as Johnnie Cochran
  • Nathan Lane as F. Lee Bailey
  • Jordana Brewster as Denise Brown
  • Selma Blair as Kris Kardashian

I asked 10 people if they were planning on watching it and all but one said yes! I realize is a very small sample but I have a feeling this show will have unbelievable ratings.

  • What do you remember about June 17, 1994?
  • Are you planning on watching the show?
  • Do you think it will give you some additional insight on what happened that night?

I look forward to reading your comments.
