Juiced

OJ

by Andrew Osborne

At some point (probably as part of my Best of 2016 bloggage), I’ll write a full post on why I think THE PEOPLE VS. O.J. SIMPSON is the most timely, entertaining, angrifying, and generally spectacular TV production since THE WIRE (thanks to its layered shades of moral relativism, ever-shifting rooting interests & gut-punch portrayals of realpolitik cynicism vs. naive idealism). And at that time, I’ll rave about the amazing writing, directing, and casting (including, tonight, the stellar addition of Robert Morse as Dominick Dunne)…but for now, allow me to share another of my favorite O.J. memories: i.e., when my parents came to visit me in L.A. around the time of the trial and I took them on a tour of the Bundy crime scene and the Rockingham estate, complete with a high speed drive between the two locations to see if the prosecution’s claims were plausible — they were — and my father nearly convincing me to hop over the fence at O.J.’s place to take a look around while my mother threatened to disavow us both if we actually did.
