Storyline

Billy Mcbride is going through a rough patch. He has been fired from the law firm he helped build, his wife has left him, and he is now a down on his luck ambulance chaser. A lady approaches him to represent her in a wrongful death case. After reluctantly accepting to take on the case a series of strange events befall Billy. Through death threats, harassment and trumped up arrests, Billy embarks on obtaining justice, and it is one hell of a ride.

Like "The Good Wife" With A Really Bad Attitude
17 October 2016 | by (Near Seattle) – See all my reviews

Random Thought Review

This show, hopefully a limited run extended mini-series is a gritty, dirty, nasty "Good Wife" with a bad attitude.

Where "The Good Wife" was upscale and cast with beautiful actors and filmed in bright colors and light, "Goliath" is the opposite. Billy Bob Thornton would not have been cast at an attorney on "The Good Wife." Billy Bob Thornton is beat up looking in real life and plays a beat up burned out attorney living in a low rent apartment on the beach near Los Angeles.

Billy McBride's allies are fatally flawed and compared to "The Good Wife" unattractive. His associates look like ordinary people you'd meet in the supermarket. Great casting in other words.

The attorneys at "Cooperman-McBride" are simply over-the-top in their nastiness. William Hurt gave me nightmares. That man is a genius in getting into character - in this case, I hope he was able to shake Cooperman after wrapping on Goliath. I'd hate to have that character haunt me after the show wrapped.

Over all this gritty take on a legal drama is great simply because it is so different from the long running "Good Wife."

Just my random thoughts.
