FX gave journalists a gift that many of us didn’t know we wanted — screeners of “The People V. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story” to binge over the holiday break. The buzz on the high-gloss limited series has been steadily building during the past 10 days since physical discs and streaming links for the first six episodes became available to media types on or about Dec. 17. The series begins its 10-episode run on Feb. 2.
Reactions so far have been generally positive, particularly in regards to the cast. Sarah Paulson has been singled out for her work as prosecutor Marcia Clark, who struggles with personal problems and rampant sexism while on a mission to convict the football legend for the June 1994 murders of his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend, Ronald Goldman.

Can't stop watching #AmericanCrimeStory screeners, and it's all Sarah Paulson's fault.
