As questions and arguments about equality and individual rights in America have become more complex and heated over the last few years, so too has each installment of John Ridley's Emmy-winning anthology series, American Crime.
This third season is far and away the series' most ambitious in terms of its execution and scope, in that it takes on human trafficking and reveals the ways that our economy relies on and perpetuates it.
The latest American Crime doesn't initially feel as strong dramatically as two prior editions, but the central premise -- and the show's underlying approach to explore an issue, sympathetically... couldn't be timelier.
American Crime manages to sidestep well-worn arguments about immigration and other hot-button topics with a set of compelling, interlocking stories that challenge viewers to see in new ways the people we so often manage not to see at all.
I was thoroughly invested, and deeply impressed once again by show creator John Ridley's ambition. Gradually, the plots begin to connect more clearly, and we begin to see how all the social problems that Ridley has set loose are linked.
