Some of the characters in the first episode 

Review of "The Fix" 3/20/18 by Suzanne
airs Mondays on ABC

I enjoyed the first episode of the show, particularly because of the actors involved. does a great job in her starring role of Maya, a former L.A. prosecutor who left her job a decade ago after losing a big murder case. I loved her on "The Mentalist." Her character here is more damaged and sensitive than Lisbon, haunted by the her failure to find justice for the dead women. The defense lawyer on the other side, Ezra Wolf, is played by , who's always outstanding. Wolf is a gambler who owes money to some dangerous people. There are a number of different interesting characters.

The show is written by Marcia Clark, who takes the O.J. case and twists it a bit, with a lot of "what ifs." The African-American suspect in this case is a movie star, "Sevvy" Johnson, played very well by (he reminds me a bit of Idris Elba at times). He plays the narcissistic actor well. Maya, who now lives on a ranch with a handsome farmer (, another favorite of mine), returns to town after Sevvy's girlfriend is murdered. Maya doesn't want to get involved, but she soon finds evidence that makes her think that she has a chance to finally get justice for his victims. She's dragged back into it, despite herself.  ("Notorious," "Tyrant") plays Matthew, her previous boyfriend, another lawyer who worked on the case with her.

If you like O.J. or think he's innocent, then you may find this show hard to stomach. It sure seems from the outside like Sevvy is guilty, and the focus is on the prosecutor, who's the heroine. Of course, her best friend, CJ () is African-American, probably to make us think that race isn't an issue. However, those of us who lived through the O.J. trial might feel like this show is another attempt to lynch O.J. and people like him. Or, perhaps the writers meant for us to feel uncomfortable, and they're going to quickly show that Sevvy's case is not a foregone conclusion. That would certainly make it a more interesting drama. Given that Clark is the creator of the show, though, I don't see how that can be the case.

We already saw "American Crime Story: The People Vs. O.J. Simpson," so I don't know how this one can improve on that. Time will tell! Perhaps they'll surprise me with this one.
