    Loved it! This show is amazing! the actors are so versatile and it's interesting to see them play different roles. The storylines of this season were captivating. I enjoyed Regina King's storyline the most.

    American Crime does not leave you baffled by its ending… Yes you will be surprised, but the story is so compelling you await the next step and not the finale (this isn’t Big Little Lies). With any level of sensitivity you are forced to ponder every character’s situation and most likely judge thereafter. With regards to current issues, American Crime will someday be recognized as the most socially conscience - remaining thought provoking and worth while show in the history of television.

    The acting is usually good and the individual plots are for the most part strong, but because of the multiple threads, neither the plots nor the characters are developed much. A bit over-orchestrated and at times too close to being a soap-opera, and the final scene is simply both too easy and too heavy. The plots involve overlapping characters, but the plots do not interlock, and the result is a strong sense of authorial manipulation in creating a theme. This sense becomes overwhelming when all of the accused from each thread are brought together, by complete coincidence, before the same judge on the same day, in the same courtroom. I liked many of the scenes, but each of the plots could have become a separate film. Collecting them together and interweaving them seemed to have little purpose--they did not comment on each other. In each, the victimized are further victimized and the bad folks are caught and may or may not be redeemed. That last part is the most worrisome. The shows sympathies really seemed to be more with the middle-class and well-to-do than with the victims, since much more screen time was given to them, and the script as concerned with questions over the saving of their marriages as with the deaths and disfigurement of the victims.

    Just finished season 3 after finding the other two years on Netflix. Simply the best network drama series (ABC) in years if not decades. Brutally honest portrayal of moral dilemmas in American life. Writing, acting and directing are superb. Warning: No Hollywood endings.

    This is the only television series that not only touches on but digs deep into so many sensitive, shunned, and simply ignored topics in every episode that many people in our country choose to turn a blind eye and deaf ear on; but should be discussed on a daily basis.. I love this show, along with it's accuracy on race relations, ethnic prejudices, immigration, addictions, sexual preferences, and social economic prejudices and the stigmas placed by society against them.

    American Crime is a vehicle for performances and storytelling, like most films and television shows should be, but don't always deliver. This show delivers the performances and storytelling to the MAXIMUM! Well done, ABC. Well done indeed.
