Knocking on Emmy's Door
14 October 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

After only watching the first episode, I am seeing the possibility of an Emmy for For at least Billy Bob, Kelly and Bellow. Possibly Hurt and the writers. This seems to be one of the better streaming services or premium cable dramas to come across my screen in many months. I wasn't as tweaked about Goliath as I was Westworld, but after two episodes of Westworld and one of Goliath, my tastes say Goliath serves up a better dramatic dish to be savored rather than gulped down in shock scenes as in Westworld. I guess I prefer the story and character development over action. Guess I'm getting old. LOL.

Another nice thing is this is so far away from the procedural format that seems to be the only other thing out there in legal dramas.

Now it's off to binge the rest of the series to see if it disappoints or exceeds my expectations.

I'm not a professional reviewer and I don't even play one on TV.
