Critic Reviews for Goliath: Season 1

All Critics (37) | Top Critics (22)

Given all the loose-ended, bizarro world TV dramas currently in play, it turns out to be a distinct pleasure to review a limited series with a linear storyline and a definitive ending.

Goliath isn't a groundbreaker by any means - it bears some resemblance to Glenn Close's Damages - but it's a solidly entertaining legal thriller that benefits enormously from Billy Bob Thornton's strong lead

If you're struggling with all the sci-fi weirdness of Westworld and never quite got Orphan Black, you will love the straightforward thrills of Goliath.

What's there so far is... entertaining TV, but steady updates in the upcoming episodes could make Goliath truly mighty.

As a hard-luck lawyer looking to get off the booze and back in the game, his McBride sounds like a stock character, except Thornton... creates someone who's anything but stock... He's the best reason to keep watching.

Bolstered by as A-list a cast as anything on TV (with the exception of Westworld perhaps) and tighter, less showy writing than we've come to expect from Kelley.
