American Crime cast

"American Crime" review by Eva Diaz 3/6/15
Premieres Thursday March 12 10/9c on ABC

This show has an amazing cast led by Timothy Hutton (who plays Russ Skoke) and Felicity Huffman (who plays Barb Hanlon). Russ and Barb are a divorced couple who find out that their son has been murdered and his wife was been raped. Now, the sole focus of Barbís life is to get justice for her son and find out why he was killed. Fans of "Desperate Housewives" may be surprised upon watching the show that the character of Barb Hanlon can be a bit of a villain, but you feel sorry for her because you realize she has had a hard life and all the hateful things she says come out of grief and pain.

This show is very realistic and gritty and isnít afraid to deal with issues like prejudice.  It's very well written and often its dialog reflects what the viewer is thinking while watching the show. At other times, the show can make you upset by the opinions of the characters. One of the things that I donít like about the show is that most of it is done in flashbacks of what happened the day Russ and Barbís son was killed, and it tends to be a bit confusing at times.  However, it is still worth watching and it's so wonderful watching such great actors work. I give this show 4 out of 5 stars. I suggest you watch the first episode online if you missed it. The show airs on ABC Thursday 10 PM Easten time 9 PM Central time
