The Goliath Series
This Amazon TV series is set in the American legal system and it follows the life of Billy McBride played by Thornton. Billy McBride was a brilliant lawyer who partnered with Donald Cooperman played by William Hurt to start the law firm, Cooperman McBride. However, Billy was later thrown out of his firm and was left to struggle on the streets for survival. Subsequently, in season 1, he seeks to get justice, both professionally and personally. The first 8 episodes unveil the series of events that eventually gets Billy some sort of victory although a number of unpleasant events also happen during his quest to get justice.
The second season of Goliath was officially released on 15th June 2018. It follows Billy McBride as he defends his friend’s son from a double homicide charge. During the process, he forms a friendship with the LA council lady, Marisol Silva played by Ana de la Reguera. He also faces challenges from La Mano cartel which was headed by Marisol Silva’s brother, Gabriel played by Manuel Garcia-Rulfo. As the season progresses, Marisol makes it clear that she does not love Billy and the ruthless nature of her brother is further revealed when he cuts off the limbs of Tom Wyatt – portrayed by Mark Duplass.
Goliath is notable for leaving its viewers in suspense which is the pattern the first two seasons have followed. Therefore, it is believed that its season 3 will definitely takeoff from where it season 2 ended abruptly.
