Once premiered on FX, I have been glued to my television every Wednesday to watch The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story. The crime anthology follows the murder of serial killer Andrew Cunanan who eventually kills Gianni Versace in 1997. Some television adaptations don't do the original story justice, especially when the original is a book. Creator Tom Rob Smith did a great job with the production for the second season of this series.
Smith truly embraced the story of Andrew Cunanan and did a wonderful job with the development of the story and the dramatization. I believe this best way to watch the show is to do a little reading about the true story. Seeing how well Smith developed the story based on the true events that happened is truly amazing and it makes the show that much better. I was also impressed with the choice of casting Darren Criss to play the role of Andrew in the series. I feel like the role was something really different for him, coming from a show such as Glee. He showcased a really talented and intense side of him and I can't wait to see what he has coming in the future.
As far as the series, I am somewhat sad that there are only a few episodes left to go. I am, however, ready to see how the story of Andrew ends, especially with the way the story is being broken down. I am also to see what the next season will bring with the focus of the story being on Katrina, but that may be hearsay ;). Catch the next episode when it comes on Wednesday and tell me what you think!
