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.

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

  • 3d ago
    What's with all these critics and their glowing reviews? Season 2 had a ludicrous plot that made no sense. There was no reason for the bad guys to do what they did. There was very little court room action. The master villain was right out of a comic book. No newspaper checked that the mayoral candidate grew up with the head of a Mexican cartel? Pathetic. Lets be honest, if Billie Bob wasn't the star no one would watch it. (But his bitchie assistant should get her own spin-off. I'd watch that.)
  • Dec 31, 2019
    Weak but not awful. If you think it's bad, wait until you see season 3.
  • Dec 29, 2019
    Dark, gritty. This is how more shows should be. People are tired of happy endings. I'm tired of my avengers type, good guys win, plot. This was real, I loved it.
  • Dec 25, 2019
    Season 2 became absolutely riveting. Loved Billie's legal team; Patty is an amazing character. Episode 7, "Diablo Verde", is on of the greatest and strangest episodes of television I have ever seen; it is right up there with the "Pine Barrens" episode of The Sopranos.
  • Dec 09, 2019
    Much darker than previous season. And a step back from regular judicial tv drama, which I liked.
  • Dec 09, 2019
    I really liked Season 1 but the second season was really mostly terrible. Really can't find a positive thing to say about it except perhaps the producers learned from it and this resulted in a really excellent Season 3.
  • Nov 29, 2019
    The first season was great, but this one just never makes sense. It doesn't matter if it's people trying to hide from people wanting to shoot them but still shreiking regualrly with no increased level of threat, or just the most disorientated unnatural behaviour with regards to every character. It's as if the writer can't be bothered to think about the character's motivations or general character in previous episodes. I'm seven episodes in and I've decide to skip it and go to season 3 in the hope they returned it to the season one type of show and writing. I actually feel quite ripped off. If they're going to have a different style of over-dramatized non logical show, they could call it something else so that people that are waiting for it to return to being like the first season don't waste their time.

    Didn't like this season... I hoped for a better ending... Too long for this kind of final episode ! Hope the third is better
  • Nov 24, 2019
    Great series , this one a little violent though
  • Nov 15, 2019
    Really was hoping, but a let down for sure. Story was all over the place and it seems like they were writing this as it was being mafe. The ending was a sad let down. The only thing saving it was the acting. Here's hoping 3 is better.
