I am not a Billy Bob Thorton fan, or at least I wasn't, the whole Angelina Jolie thing. Anyway I have Amazon Prime and to tell the truth it is pretty pathetic in Canada. I am not sure if they are even trying. I watched The Looming Tower, which is damned good. But the biggest surprise is Goliath. Billy Bob plays a drunk lawyer, who's a mess. But he stumbles across this case that no one else will take. I won't go into details, but he has a few enemies, William Hurt being the biggest one. Hurt's character is his former partner in a big law firm, he is a recluse due to facial burns. He is annoying as hell, starts off a conversation very calm but always ends it screaming and saying do it his way. And he has this annoying clicker. The case is complicated & William Hurt does all he can to make it more complicated. I blasted through the first 6 episodes, I stopped as it was 2 in the morning. The script is well written, the music is great. Thorton's odd ball associates are awesome. There are two seasons, of this show.
