“American Crime” is now two episodes into its run, and we are starting to understand more about the characters, who they are, and also what they are hoping to get from this investigation. At the same time, though, we do also continue to wonder whether or not this show is getting much too complicated for its own good. There are a lot of different things that are being balanced here, and part of the reason for that is the rather hefty case you see in the attached picture. For a new show, this is a lot of different personalities to juggle.
If you do want to get some other basic news in terms of what to expect, our suggestion is simple: Take a look at the synopsis below. It tells you not just about the latest for Barb and Hector, but also a chance to see what Regina King brings to the table:
“Nearly a month after the arraignment of the accused, the emotional complications of all involved continue to deepen. Carter’s sister Aliyah (Regina King), a devout Muslim, arrives to support her brother despite their strained relationship, and her stark disapproval of his involvement with Aubry. Simultaneously, Alonzo receives an update about Tony’s case that sheds light on his family life which makes him question himself as a good father. Hector’s troubles compound when he’s recognized by a fellow gang member and his loyalty is tested. Barb continues her relentless fight for justice and works with Nancy Straumberg (Lili Taylor), who is the head of a Victim’s Rights Group to try and get another hate crime charge added against Carter.”
The next challenge for “American Crime” is ultimately rather simple: Seeing what it ends up drawing in the ratings tomorrow morning.
