FX opened the book on American Crime Story last night with the first chapter of The People v. O.J. Simpson and with its star-studded cast, still-topical case and our insatiable hunger for true-crime drama. Of course, the Internet was all abuzz, so we rounded up some of the most scintillating tweets.

Mostly, people were excited.

But then they became disturbed.

Some actually remembered the original case.

And some misremembered it, as well.

A few viewers learned things.

While some had strong feelings about the casting.

As well as strong feelings about the styling.

Others got a bit truth-y.

Some just plain scared us.

Like, really scared us.

And even though we were only one episode in, viewers became judge and jury.

What did you think?
