The first season of this show chronicled the ever-famous OJ Simpson trial and did not disappoint.
This second season is shocking and terrifying at the same time. The show has a way of making the worst characters seem redeemable yet scary at the same time. Warning: if your anything like me and get scared easily this might not be for you because I was so frightened I couldn’t sleep for nights.
