I attempted to watch the new season of American Crime Story, The Assassination of Gianna Versace, and it probably will not be my new favorite show, but it was an interesting experience.
Notes On Watching The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story:
- The set design and cinematography on this show is amazing and over the top in a good way.
- Whoa they really nailed the Edgar Ramirez transformation into Gianni Versace.
- In between each commercial there is a viewer discretion advised notice before the show starts again. This advisement needs to be in exclamation points because it is not for the lighthearted.
- Darren Criss is amazing on this show as the real life serial killer, Andrew Cunanan. I only know him from the show Glee, which I thought he was adorable in, but this is a new level.
- Was Gianni Versace’s house really this magnificent and ornate? I guess I should not expect anything less of Versace based on the designs he created.
- Is this an accurate portrayal of Donatella Versace? *Googles Donatella Versace and watches her interview with Vogue and now wants to be best friends with Donatella Versace*
- The pacing on this show is really all over the place. In some scenes there is just a lot of talking that starts to lull, and then the next scene is way too graphic and I am not prepared whatsoever.
- I still have not watched the first season of American Crime Story about the O.J. trial, even though it gained so much recognition during award season. I had recently watched the O.J. documentary at the time and felt I would not be watching anything new from the drama series. From what I understood about the first season is that it focused on the legal side of the O.J. drama, which could give viewers an interesting insight. However, I find this second season to lack something that will draw me in. Since it is a true story I basically know much of what happens, which takes away any mystery and intrigue.
