As a lawyer and retired judge, I can speak with some authority that the writers of Goliath have spun a great story supported by "real life" legal realities. I particularly enjoyed the episode where the main character gives "deposition tips" to an expert witness. It made me smile because it was "so true." This series is exquisitely entertaining, the characters are well-crafted, believable, and immensely genuine. Billy Bob Thornton gives us the best acting performance of his career, no small feat considering his past successes. He demonstrates the kind of lawyer we judges would simultaneously fear and admire, the ones who push the system to its limits but do so with an unerring determination to discover the truth of the matter regardless of personal consequences. The characters are complex, difficult, messy and heroic. This is signified by superb screen-writing and acting, and anyone with experience in the world of the hard-core litigation will recognize the characters. These characters are drawn from real-life. The language may surprise some, but the fact is, this is actually not too far off the mark in how lawyers talk -- rough, coarse and bold. Hopefully they keep the same actors and writers driving this project forward into future seasons. Each one of the actors is spot-on. In over 40 years of litigation, I have met every one of these characters!! Somebody on the inside of the litigation game is writing or reviewing the script.

Take it from the Judge, this show is Affirmed!

Ever since my first 1996 southern California visit, I have been forever amazed at the paradox that, in spite of the paradise weather and sunshine smiles, the SoCal general public vibes come off as depressed angst.
1--That stark contrast is totally captured by the inimitable Billy Bob Thornton's alcoholic attorney Billy McBride living out of a Santa Monica motel driving a s***box convertible befriending a stray pit bull no less, meeting his daughter (Diana Hopper) at his neighborhood bar Chez Jay (actual place today).
2--Most every character has some degree of this paradox as well: lawyers Callie Senate (Molly Parker), Michelle McBride (Maria Bello), and Donald Cooperman (William Hurt) all exude aloof, high-powered confidence but have very dysfunctional inner/personal lives.
3--Billy's crowd were even more duplicitous, and the car scenes showing this motley crew cruising down the beach front avenue are soooo SoCal.
4--Prostitute Brittany (Tania Raymonde) nailed the vulnerable, shallow, sexy, valley-girl, tinsel-town appearance while abusing killer drugs.
5--Patty (Nina Arianda) is a hoot with her blunt "yappiness" but heartfelt support of Billy.
6--And Lucy's (Olivia Thirlby) gradual sexual harassment leading to pathetic Stockholm-syndrome adoration of Cooperman is remarkably realistic.
7--But my highest praise goes to Thornton's pitch-perfect portrayal of alcoholic demons even in the final scene when we aren't sure if he has fallen off the wagon for good or not. . .some cliffhanger!
8--Finally, the screenwriters provide authentic dialogues and several plot surprises to make you binge-watch all 8 episodes as one long film so plan a weekend watch.
Amazon is hiring some fabulous acting for our affordable home viewing. . .thank you kindly!

I have to agree with several other reviewers. This is one of the best TV series I have ever watched. I would give it 10 out of 5 stars if Amazon had that option. Consumer alert, give yourself plenty of time if you start to watch. I just watched all 8 episodes last night. I could not stop watching. The plot is interesting and original. The actors are great. Billie Bob Thornton is fabulous. William Hurt's approach to his character is reminiscent of Marlon Brando in Apocalypse Now. I really liked Nina Arianda's spunky lawyer. You go girl! What I also love, love, love is what it does not have. It does not have any zombies or vampires. It does not have tons of violence or action heroes. It does not have any travel into the future or back in time. The time is today, not World War II, or any other 20th century time where it seems like the movie studios are just trying to use their props. It depicts drinking alcohol and using drugs realistically. You don't have a lot of gorgeous actors basically just drinking and using drugs, having sex, and engaging in unremitting violence as a way to solve problems. And the ending is poignant and deep. I'm so grateful to Amazon Prime for this I could just cry. More please!

So who or what are the Goliaths? Powerful business enterprises and the law firms who represent them? Alcoholism? Drug addiction? It's interesting that Bobbie's initial experiences with his big law firm and alcohol were both positive at first. But as both choices become toxic, he fails to bail out in time to prevent creating his own personal Goliaths. Itzhak Perlman once said something like "when I'm playing the violin, what I am doing mostly is correcting my mistakes." There are few things in life that we get right the first time.
