10. The Assassination Of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story
The follow-up to Ryan Murphy's brilliant The People v O.J. Simpson, the new run of American Crime Story keeps its gaze firmly in the 1990s, but turns it to the serial killer Andrew Cunanan and his murder of fashion designer Gianni Versace.
The series isn't as focused on the details as the first season was, with less verifiable facts to draw upon. But what it loses in that attention it makes up for with a glitzy sheen and some batsh*t craziness, blending murder investigation with high melodrama.
Versace might be the man in the title, but the bigger focus is on Cunanan, with Darren Criss delivering a performance that's almost certainly going to win him a lot of awards. The show is showing signs of getting better as it progresses, and is just about to land on the BBC in the UK too, meaning it's a great time to get caught up or prepare to watch.
NCTJ-qualified journalist. Most definitely not a racing driver. Drink too much tea; eat too much peanut butter; watch too much TV. Sadly only the latter paying off so far.
A mix of wise-old man in a young man's body with a child-like wonder about him and a great otherworldly sensibility.
