I'm not sure, though he seems good from what I've seen. This has not been as well-received as People vs OJ Simpson chapter.

Penelope Cruz is uncanny. Her accent is just perfect.

The last episode was excellent. I felt very sorry for David Madson.

Honestly they should have named the show "American Crime Story : Andrew Cunanan".
I understand why some people were disappointed with the first few episodes.
I expected the season to be really centered around Versace, but it is quite interesting to have a show centered around a killer.
Latest episode was fantastic. The emotion and tension...loved it.

Great episode, once again. I like this season much more than season 1.

Nah, it was boring.

This backwards chronological timeline isn’t working for me.

Another great episode. Jeff Trail's struggle as a gay man in the navy really touched me.

It’s getting worse each episode for me. An episode focusing on Jeff is not what I was wanting from this series.

And Cunanan is so unlikeable. I can’t bear watching him, just want him to die already

The last two episodes have been my favourites so far. I can relate much more to the lifes of David and Jeff than to Versace's.

Cunanan is very unlikeable but that's how he was I guess. Darren Criss does an excellent job.

The last episode was the weakest one so far, boring and without any new revelations (apart from the fact that Andrew's mother was as disturbed as he was).

For me, it was the opposite! I thought it was a very good episode - easy to follow and well-paced. The previous two episodes were slow and really dragged so it was hard to focus, and there was too much emphasis on secondary characters in those episodes. This one brought it all back to Cunanan and showed more insight into his life and psyche.

I wish the series was done in chronological order. I feel like I'm going to need to watch the series in reverse order when it's done :roll:

I just realised Jeff Trail is played by sexy Dandy from AHS Freak Show. I may need to watch the previous episode again because he was in that a lot

Loved Penelope Cruz in the last episode. However, regarding Andrew's character, it's getting very repetitive, which annoys me a bit.

Quite an uneventful episode, especially for a penultimate.
