season two, 720p
The first season of Goliath was
not exactly filled with lightness and gaiety, but it
produced some satisfaction with its resolution.
Season two is just depressing as hell. The
relationships all turn to shit, the sympathetic
characters meet an ugly fate, and the worst people
remain unpunished. The action often turns
surreal and not a little bit perverted. I don't mean
perverted in any fun sense, but in a dark, twisted
way: for example, two different characters are
amputation fetishists, and one of them is an amateur
surgeon. This series is brilliant in many ways, and
Billy Bob Thornton is off-the-charts good in his
special, laconic way, but I have to say that if
season two exists as a stand-alone story, it is one
of the least pleasant ways I have ever spent time.
My only hope is that season two is just a prelude to
season three, when the worst evil finally receives
Making a bad situation even worse, this
season contained no female nudity, although some
naked males appear from time to time. Tania
Raymonde, who bared her breasts in a sex scene in
season one, did appear once in a bikini and once in
bikini underwear, and she does have a gorgeous,
slim, figure. So there's that, for what it's worth.
