This week on Reel Genius, we look at an ABC show that has people talking about something they're not inclined to talk about: race relations. ABC will air the fourth episode of American Crime on Thursday night, and the series, created by Oscar-winning 12 Years a Slave screenwriter John Ridley, is off to a blistering start. A double homicide in Modesto, Calif. lights up a cauldron of animosity and recrimination, from the victims' parents, the suspects' families, and everyone else. 

Nothing is black and white. It's a little like Crash, except it's really good, and worth catching up with On Demand and settling in for the rest of the run. Also worth noting: Between American Crime, the Serial podcast and True Detective, the crime procedural show has never been better.
