Looks like they put it out a day early. It's up.

Oh man, Mark Duplass is hilarious and gross! I think he'll get nominated for an Emmy.

Just finished it. Yes I binged it. Not as good as the first season but still better than most shows on network tv. I was a little disappointed at the ending but over all a great show. This and Bosch are really keeping Amazon Prime Video subscription active.

Just finished it and it was one wacky game show. I think my favorite episode was the one with the various cameos towards the end where they kept Billy Bob in that house. Good to see Steven Baur in there.

I guess if they make a season 3 it will have to continue on with sone of the characters from this season. I was not necessarily a fan of what they did with Raymonde's character this time out. I find her stunning.

Well, we did get a couple of good ass shots of her... so that's something.

Very unsatisfying end to the season.

One of the complaints I have is that the first season actually ahd a court case, this season they were barely in the court. He's known as a bad ass attorney I would like them to show it sometimes.

Agreed. Overall this season was a disappointment.

Justified is a great show but Breaking Bad is on another level. Sneaky Pete is just OK. We finished up season two of Goliath tonight. We watched both seasons in the last two weeks. I thought Season 2 was pretty good howerer the ending was a little disappointing.

Agreed! This whole season just didn't do it for me. When season 3 arrives I don't know if I'll have the desire to pursue it.

Finished season 2 today and liked it, but definitely not as good as the first. I'll echo the sentiments about the lack of a courtroom setting this season to be a negative.

Also, there were some eye roll inducing moments with villains, like the henchman with the hook arm who was cracking walnuts to be intimidating, or Mark Duplass's character having a fetish for amputees.

Still an entertaining season overall, I'd keep watching if Amazon rolls out more seasons.

Yeah, the hook arm guy was quit the bad ass fighter for only having one full arm. I liked the part where he perfectly snipped off the guy's ear.

Last I looked, this season had a less than 3-star rating on Amazon. The first season had more than four stars. Apparently, we're not the only ones who were less than satisfied with it.

I'm kind of glad this season didn't spend much time in the courtroom. Courtroom dramas always feel like the standard courtroom network drama. However, Bill's a lawyer - so that's what the show should've had more of.. instead, he was more of a private investigator.

Also, there were some eye roll inducing moments with villains, like the henchman with the hook arm who was cracking walnuts to be intimidating, or Mark Duplass's character having a fetish for amputees.
Also found those things dumb.
How about the 2 guys who "shot" Billy across the tracks and watch him fall. I guess that's all the proof they need that he was shot and didn't just trip. Why waste 30 seconds walking to him to find out?

It was a weird season and I kinda like that it wasn't resolved because I'm sick of the formula with these types of shows - everything is resolved at the end of the season. However, I wonder if S3 will follow the same storyline or maybe we'll see a return to this in S4 or later (if this gets renewed).

Just finished it and loved it overall. Whatever one thinks about the season Billy Bob Thornton is one heck of an actor. I definitely was displeased when
Spoiler:
Julio was murdered,
but in the end I was OK with how it all wrapped up, because it didn't really. Also in the X-ray part on Netflix is said something like
Spoiler:
"Even though Claudia wins the writers wanted it to be a back and forth in later seasons,"
or something like that.

I agree with that. He carried the show and was the only thing that made this season watchable.

Re: Goliath (Amazon Prime) -- S: Billy Bob Thornton -- From David E. Kelley -- 10/14/

I forgot to write when I finished it last month. I really disliked Season 2. What a Sophomore Slump. Dull, plodding, pointless. Almost no law stuff at all. Heck, even the premise of Goliath (tiny firm taking on a huge corporation) doesn't really apply here. Yes Billy was up against a powerful drug cartel, but he wasn't really taking them on.
The whole thing felt like a waste of time to me. Hope David E Kelly (one of my favorite TV writers before this fiasco) will right the ship in time for Season 3. No rush.

DEK wrote all episodes in S1. Felt like a great courtroom drama. Looks like he wasn't involved in S2 other than name only. This 2nd season, I have no fucking clue what it was or what it became. The tone was completely different. Like it was 2 different shows.

I think the over the top sadism turned off a lot of viewers. It looks like they've set up the brother and sister to be recurring villains, which if true will again turn off a lot of viewers.

It appears that Billy's daughter has inherited his alcoholism. Time for her mother to come back but I don't know if they can get Maria Bello considering her NCIS schedule.

Amazon Prime Video has renewed the Billy Bob Thornton-led series “Goliath” for a third season.

This season, the unexpected death of an old friend leads Billy McBride (Thornton) to take a case in the drought-stricken Central Valley where he comes face-to-face with a new Goliath: a billionaire rancher (Dennis Quaid) and his sister (Amy Brenneman).

As Billy and his team pursue the truth, old enemies and personal demons resurface, forcing him to confront his own mortality. Griffin Dunne, Beau Bridges, Sherilyn Fenn and Shamier Anderson also join the new season which launches sometime in 2019.
Seems like they have a pretty talented cast. Can't be much worse than last season.
