Fri 10/14: 'Goliath' (Amazon)
Billy Bob Thornton playing a grizzled, down-and-out attorney seeking redemption through a case sounds about as perfect as a casting as you could imagine. Following an incredible run on Fargo, Thornton is poised once again to make waves in this new project from television producer David E. Kelley, known for uber-successful shows like Boston Legal and The Practice. The series is rounded out by an equally powerful supporting cast, including William Hurt, Maria Bello, Olivia Thirlby, and Jason Ritter. This is a one-and-done series, so viewers with commitment issues can feel confident knowing that a true conclusion comes at the end of the eighth episode.
