ESPN 30 for 30 Vol 3: O.J.: Made in America, Episode 5

Sharon and I watched O.J.: Made in America, Episode 5. This is the fifth episode of a five part ten hour miniseries. The miniseries explores O.J.'s life as well as race relations and the cult of celebrity. This is the tenth installment of ESPN's 30 for 30 Volume 3 and the first episodic ESPN 30 for 30 documentary. An episode guide for Vol 3 is here.

The fifth and final episode opens with the 1995 verdict in the murder trial and follows O.J Simpson's life until he was imprisoned on 2007 robbery and kidnapping charges. I was surprised by the footage and description of the life that he was living in South Beach in the 00s. O.J was living large...

Both Sharon and I enjoyed the documentary, but felt like the ending was weak. After so many hours of incredible footage, the film kind of sputtered to an end.
