Thumbs up Goliath (Season 1) on Amazon Prime - Good legal thriller

I have been watching this show on Amazon Prime. Season 1 aired on Amazon in 2016, but I got to it just now.

Billy Bob Thornton plays Billie McBride, a once powerful lawyer, but now reduced to a drunk and just about surviving on crappy low cost legal cases.

The show is quite good. Each character is given time to grow and develop into the main story of the show. The plot starts off quite simple - A man on a fishing boat dies because the boat exploded.

Don't wish to give away too much as I too have not reached the finale. But do watch when you can. Good show

I had seen it appearing on prime but I am normally too scared to watch a TV show. But if it is recommended, then it is another matter.

This series is limited to 8 episodes and it ends. I mean there is no continuation as such like other TV shows. I see that there is a Goliath Season 2, but the story synopsis tells you that its not related to the season 1 except offcourse the main character of Billie McBride.

Do watch season 1... sometimes it might feel a little slow, but every episode ends with a good twist/shock.

Watched this right after Jack Ryan.

Good show. It's gritty and the finale where he dies is really good. Just kidding. He doesn't die. Or does he?

I have not reached the finale.. I am on episode 6... so 2 more to go.

Since there is a season 2, I am sure he does not die

Re: Goliath (Season 1) on Amazon Prime - Good legal thriller

Finally finished this! Good show. Season 1 was good. Now going to watch Season 2.

I really feel sad that our own desi tv channels never come up with some good shows. They are stuck in the same saas bahu, extra marital affair, family feuds kind of crap.

Don't they reflect the current state of desi society? I find appalling the level of comedy.. I have often ranted here about desi comedy never going further than physical features.. loola langda, wide lips, small eyes.. etc. I think even writers and movie makers mostly can think only that far.. as the society they live in.

I also finished season 1. More captivating than anything else I have watched recently.
Season 2 is available to download but don't see a link for online streaming. Hopefully that will be good as well.

When Kapil Sharma had contested in the Laughter Challenge show hosted by Archana Puran Singh, he was good. He had such great one liners.

Later he became very big and got his own show. Good for him.
His comedy show used to have atleast 2 or 3 good comic lines, but it was mostly physical comedy with over the top ham acting by all cast members.

Then it became routine and boring. Same characters, same lines, same crap.

Now, there is this show in Marathi which has a similar concept - Comedy skits and some guests who promote movies/dramas. Its called "Chala Hawa Yeu Dya" (Chalo Hawa Aane Do)

It is still running strong and I still watch it because though the actors in the sketches are same, the characters they play in each show are different. The writing is superb and the jokes are just spot on. Every actor is very good at improvisation and impromptu one liners and punches!

This show does what Kapil Sharma never did - more attention to writing, fresh characters every episode though the actors were the same and never taking the audience for granted.

Try watching it if you understand Marathi.

All big name Hindi films also come on this show for promotion. I have seen Shahrukh Khan and Salman Khan come on the show to promote their movies. And yes, both were completely satirized in the sketches by the cast of Hawa Yeu Dya.

Re: Goliath (Season 1) on Amazon Prime - Good legal thriller

Very good show. Liked it.

Disappointed with the conservative nature. Not much skin with so many hot female characters. Thoda rehta toh mazaa aata.
