Someone says that no one watches the Naked Gun movies anymore because of O.J. Simpson. Well, one could watch them as O.J. getting his comeuppance for what he did to Ron and Nicole. That's how I watch them as.

Funny. That's how I viewed his Vegas criminal trial.

The Naked Gun movies were great entertainment.

Leslie Nielsen, George Kennedy, and the others were great.

Who knew about that Nordberg (lol)?

I wonder though: will it take a position on OJ's guilt? When Shapiro asked OJ whether he was guilty, Cuba Gooding Jr. answered in the most evil and guilty way trying to mask his guilt.

In some scenes - like the car chase scene he appeared innocent to some degree.

OJ always maintained that good guy athlete image even during his Las Vegas trial.

I'm getting used to Travolta's portrayal of Shapiro and from the movie it seems to want to portray Robert Shapiro as a bit selfish only interested in winning the case as he's making the whole trial revolve around "race".

Maybe I'm wrong, but I am under the impression that the show's producers/writers/directors all absolutely think O.J. is guilty. Not only do they think O.J. is guilty, but they also think the prosecution made some major errors in the handling of the case. And there was some shoddy police work.

I suspect as this plays out the lone sympathetic character is going to be Robert Kardashian, who will have a crisis of faith as he realizes his friend and idol is a murderer. Just my suspicion, based on what I know of the case and of Kardashian.

The real Marcia Clark was, in fact, a heavy smoker. Her favorites were Dunhill cigarettes.

I figured she was, the way they are having that actress smoke so heavily in the show!

I geeked out for the machinations the Dream Team executed. I feel dirty.

I hopped into this thread because the Oxygen network is doing a bunch of Simpson coverage in preparation of their miniseries, The Jury Speaks. I never thought anyone other than Simpson committed the double murder. IMO, no matter how many times he proclaimed his innocence, his actions always spoke louder. From his previous well documented abuse of Nicole, to his ridiculous slow speed chase, to the If I did It BS, to his role in the armed robbery that finally sent him to prison.

I was watching one of the documentaries about this case earlier this evening, and they aired some clips of OJ Simpson recounting his version of events from that night. For some reason Simpson started going on and on about Kato Kaelin and how the man just wouldn't give up about the "noise" that he heard outside the residence. Simpson actually seemed to belabor this point, and even seemed a little irritated about it. For some reason I found this amusing. I couldn't help but think that if I were trying to play it cool after committing a violent murder and my houseguest starts a motor mouth routine about movements that I'm trying to cover up, I'd probably be a little irritated too, lol.

By the way...can someone please explain this ridiculous (IMO anyway) theory about Faye Resnick and the evil, shadowy Colombian drug dealers?? Not sure how Faye Resnick's alleged drug issues, whatever they might have been, would lead to the murders of Simpson and Goldman...

ETA: Just found out BTW, that Simpson has indeed been granted parole in the armed robbery case. The article I read had an interesting quote from one of his own victims about how Simpson deserves a second chance. Now I'm just spit balling here, but I'm pretty sure the Brown and Goldman families may see it somewhat differently...God knows I sure as hell do.

This is one case that should not be in Unsolved Mysteries.

This is the most solved mystery of all time.

I couldn't agree more Babalu! Never was much mystery in the Simpson case, IMO. Hard as it is to fathom however, there are a few people out there who believe the man was innocent, my own mother among them, lol! Hell, everyone's entitled to their opinion, and she is my mama...I love and adore her regardless.

To answer your question Mikaela, it was the E! True Hollywood Story.

I agree. The segment would have been okay for other shows, but not for Unsolved Mysteries. It was nothing more than filler, and certainly not good filler. But the late Vincent Bugliosi won the debate in that segment if you ask me.

I had no idea Bugliosi had passed away, Kane. That upsets me as much as when Robert Stack and Dominick Dunne passed away respectively! Actually Bugliosi authored one of my favorite true crime novels titled And the Sea Will Tell. If you're a fan of his, you may want to check it out.
