Tv Season Info

Billy Bob Thornton will reprise his role as Billy McBride who, after winning a huge verdict in the Borns Tech case, is reluctantly pulled back into the law when his friend's 16-year-old son is arrested for a double homicide. However, as Billy, Patty (Nina Arianda, Florence Foster Jenkins) and the team start to investigate what appears to be an open and shut murder case, they begin to untangle a deadly conspiracy in the seedy underbelly of Los Angeles, where drugs, real estate and politics intermingle. Once again, Billy finds himself facing a new Goliath, one that is as formidable as the city's mayoral race and as tall as the skyline itself. Thornton won the 2017 Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Drama Series for Goliath's first season.

Critic Reviews for Goliath Season 2

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (3)

Goliath doesn't take full advantage of Tom's depraved habits, but anyone focused on this particular arc should be satisfied with its ending, as well as the season's.

Jun 18, 2018 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

You can see where all of this is going but the joy of Goliath is the way it chooses to get there.

Jun 15, 2018 | Full Review…

Leisurely, but at least the ride is classy.

Jun 8, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

There are all sorts of twists and turns in this second season which is watchable but definitely not for the squeamish. There is a lot of gore this season and some images you can not unsee.

Sep 17, 2019 | Full Review…

This second season gets personal for McBride and takes things to brand new heights as he fights for Julio's innocence, while ducking and dodging the implications of mixing business with pleasure.

Aug 26, 2018 | Full Review…

The whole thing completely runs off the rails after the midway point - subplots are abandoned; motivations stop making sense.

Jun 28, 2018 | Full Review…

Like Amazon's Bosch, this L.A. crime story is satisfying in its confident approach to a familiar genre.

Jun 15, 2018 | Full Review…

With relaxed, naturalistic dialogue and real life settings, it's a series that doesn't deserve to be missed.

Audience Reviews for Goliath: Season 2

  • Jan 31, 2021
    Season 1 was good. Season 2 is just gratuitous gore and a thin complicated storyline that goes nowhere. No resolution at the end of the season. Just a waste of time.
  • Jan 28, 2021
    Yep, it was that bad. And I happen to like both BBT, and Nina Arianda, especially after watching Season 1. What happened to them !?? But if you think that Season 2 is going to deliver like Season 1, do yourself a favor, and change the channel. Quickly. To Law and Order, or LA Law, or Mr. Rogers. Before you are insulted, nauseated, and appalled at the drivel of an incredulous, silly, grotesque, and sickening Season 2. Cast and crew should be ashamed.

    The first 1/2 of the episodes are really good, and then somewhere around season 5 it just bombs. I mean shamefully embarassingly disgustingly bombs. Cringe! The writers seemed to have completely lost their grip and so try to do a kind of David Lynch meadering boring mishmash. No high powered lawyer could be so stupid as do the things he did, even a love sick old man, and then on top of it get black out drunk in an extremely dangerous situation and find himself the next morning somewhere, and with someone, totally unfamliar. And then the next episode, when he has made his way back to Calif he's got blood all over his face, from the day before, and never wipes it off- I mean dripping from his nose, all in his beard, as he continues to investigate. Oh come on! And then on top of it he is wishfully dreaming about the woman who deceived and tried to kill him and even wants to know in the end if it was ever real. Did she ever love him. OMG! Even the fantastic acting and great characters could not salvage this ridiculous script. Bleech

    Great overall plot that continually gets bigger and bigger. Though, it changes from the original formula. The show is pitched as a down and out lawyer that has a gritty way of doing things, but with the brains of Matlock. Forgettably this season took an entirely different turn - he's just an old dude going along for the ride: in romance and cartel business. He's still up against a Goliath, but he doesn't win this time, which I feel will always garner disappointment from viewers.

    I've been completely disappointed after a great season 1. Then I checked the directors and writers and noticed that they've changed both after season 1. In seasons 1 they even changed the directors between episodes and it was still good. But season 2 is utter rubbish. It's so sad.
  • Nov 20, 2020
    If I could rate this less than one star, I would. Seaton 1 of Goliath was pretty good but overlong for the story it told. Season 2 is like two different shows. The first half seems written by people who are trying to tell an involving story that have it make sense. The second half is a show where the writers seem to have just thrown up their arms and said "Let's do a bunch of coke, finish this thing off and thumb our noses at anyone stupid enough to still be watching" They say misery loves company but it really doesn't. I'll still feel sorry for anyone else who wasted their time on this crap.

    Season one was great in the same calibre of a John Grisham thriller but sadly season 2 and 3 are a far cry from being riveting or entertaining.
  • Sep 20, 2020
    Horrid. I want to drop spoiers here to help you NOT watch it. For this series, pay attention to the Viewers reviews, not the pro-critics who are in awe of Billy Bob. Disgusting violence that serves little to progress a plot other than to smear Mexicans. A nihilistic ending. If you, like me watch this season b/c 1 was so great, you'll be disappointed. I'm not watching S3 b/c it has the same rating on Rotten Tomatoes. I was enchanted w/ Thornton's acting from this and planned to watch Sling Blade, but I'm even taking a pass on that. This was just too damn weird and sick. Ahhh Billy! Ya coulda been somebody!

    First season was great. Second season was rotten. Bring back the courtroom scenes.
  • Aug 04, 2020
    Utter rubbish. The writers obviously changed from a brilliant, intelligent, captivating Season 1, to a pathetic bunch of unimaginative sickos. Trust me, stop at Season 1. Apart from being totally boring, the characters change character and become different people in Season 2. None of their actions make sense. It is riddled with unnecessary gore and sick porn. Complexly ruined a perfect show. No court room drama, no point to the episode. Once they killed off the main reason for the show, we stopped watching and just fast forwarded to the end. Phew, saved me 6 hours of rubbish. Can it Amazon. Not worth it. Also, tell me where the incredible writers from Season 1 went, and I will follow them.
