    Let's venture into the peanut gallery, shall we? 

    Linda Tripp dominated this episode, and the Paulson stans were out in full force, naturally.

    She plays literary agent Lucianne Goldberg.

    We learned a lot about the bizarre series of events that had Linda Tripp breaking bad.

    Recognizing that Paula Jones was the spark that started the fire escaped my child-brain at the time.

    I'm not alone in doing some course correction, and reflecting on this massive cultural event through the goggles of today's world.

    When I was younger I always thought Bill Clinton only sexually harassed Monica…Chileeeeee I was wrong lol #ACSImpeachment #ImpeachmentACS

    The fact that they let Bill Clinton get away with doing this to multiple women. Yet Monica Lewinsky got all the blame even now. #ACSImpeachment

    Britney Spears might be released from her conservatorship, and people are finally taking Monica Lewinsky seriously. It’s a good day for demonized women of the ‘90s. #FreeBritney #ACSImpeachment

    Monica Lewinsky acting as a consultant on this movie where the late Linda Tripp is basically shown to be a vile backstabber with no redeeming qualities whatsoever seems like some sort of glorious karmic retribution and/or retaliation…and I’m here for it all #ACSImpeachment

    There are no heroes in this story. #ACSImpeachment

    I'm curious how the series will unfold...and am strapping in for this time machine to the '90s!

    Watching #ACSImpeachment, I love the little details in set designs that really bring the time period alive.
