Not sure what to make of the Darren Criss casting but I’ll reserve my judgement until I see what he delivers. Penelope Cruz looks amazing in this too.

I wonder what impact he would be having today if he was still with us. Donatella did such an.amaxing job taking over, but I could only imagine what she went through. She seems like such a sweet woman.

She’s done a great job with that company, but it’s very hard to take her seriously when she looks the way she does.

Donatella saved Versace. I hate it that people focus on her looks and not her being a great designer and businesswoman :(

First episode was okay. A little flat in places, needs a bit more punch. Hope Sarah Paulson makes a cameo somewhere

Highlight of the episode is seeing Darren Criss' ass! :lol: Forgot how gorgeous he is. He did a great job in portraying his character and they pretty much have the same racial background (filipino/european-american) so they did a good thing in casting him.

Darren is so handsome. And that ass is PERCHED.
Penelope is amazing as Donatella.
Off to a great start.
Darren's character scares me.

I get that they are doing this show for ratings, but it feels like they are trying to make the serial killer a sex symbol. Almost like they are glorifying him.

I agree in a way, it was very American Psycho-sequel. Darren Criss is very attractive though.

It dragged quite a lot in my opinion. Not quite sure how this will go on for 9 episodes though, and I doubt it will garner awards buzz like OJ did.

I enjoyed the cinematography and music though.

Some great music and images in episode 2! Darren Criss plays his role really well. However, I don't know how they will keep the show interesting for the next 7 episodes. It feels like 3 episodes are enough to tell the whole story.

This is boring. The only cool thing is that I’ve been to Miami so it’s fun to reminisce, like Twist club - good times.

I think Penelope Cruz was miscast.

Disagree 100 percent. She is nailing the part. The accent. The look. Everything

I loved episode 3. I'm intrigued. And pissed that I am aroused by a serial killer.
