Is It Any Good?

Kids say (1):

It's hard not to associate this fictional story with the events surrounding the now infamous murder trial against O.J. Simpson, which makes the overall story feel awkward and predictable. Maya Travis and the rest of the former prosecutors appear short-sighted and vengeful, while Sevvy Johnson continues to act like a man who is guilty, even if he isn't.

It also underscores the vast role media plays in high-profile cases, which is now especially difficult to manage thanks to social media. Nonetheless, the obvious connections between fact and fiction make it near impossible to appreciate any attempts to move beyond this narrative and focus on other plot twists. As a result, viewers are left wondering if the objective of The Fix is to entertain, or to give Marcia Clark a chance to retry the sensational murder case in a more creative way.
