Audience Reviews for Goliath: Season 1

  • Jul 09, 2022
    Goliath Season 1 ranks with the very best of all streaming offerings ever. Upon later review, it actually becomes even richer in performance and scripting. Billy Bob Thorton should have won every award available.

    What a blow to the face! The series started fast, fresh & with amazing twists. Billy play is superb and the plot is super, can't ask for anything better
  • Oct 23, 2021
    Seasons 1-3. I tend to like Billy Bob Thornton's work. He did a decent job. The first season cast was pretty high powered. The quality of the story fell off a bit with seasons 2 & 3. It sort of had the feel of "Bosch" except the investigator was a lawyer rather than a police detective. Overall it was okay. The 1st season was the best.

    Season 1 Goliath- The story is interesting, the cast display their fine acting skills to endear one to their character. A good watch, looking forward to viewing season 2!

    Great season. Intelligent, compelling, high quality writing.
  • Oct 25, 2020
    The actors are good, the premise seems interesting to begin with. Somehow it never takes off, and just meanders along. We keep on waiting for it to catch speed, but it never does. The climax is too contrived, and seems fake.

    I did not think I would like this show, but watched it because of the reviews. I think I have to agree that the show is good. The overall story is fairly simple, the plot twists are good and the script written well. BIlly Bob does a good job in the show. Not sure why, but he always seems to surprise me. I suppose by now I should know he is a good actor. I enjoyed the show and the underdog aspect of it.
  • Feb 18, 2019
    Love this show! After the first episode I could not stop smiling because I love Billy Bob and he does not disappoint!
  • Dec 12, 2018
    Good show but with some what lack-luster scripts. dialogue could use a lot of work.
  • Dec 09, 2018
    Season one had a terrible ending... I was waiting see them get some real good dirt but in the end it was pretty lame
