What I’m Watching: Goliath

Goliath: Season 1, Episode 5 “Cover Your Ass” (B+)

This show has some decent dramatic storylines, but I think the best part of this episode was the extremely entertaining deposition scene. Lucy has turned into a bit of a tyrant now that she has been chosen by Donald as his new muse. Michelle wasn’t having any of her freaking out before the deposition, and Callie wants to kill her. Billy objecting to the first thing that Lucy said and not even letting her get started was hilarious, but she hit back with her own disability claim to shut him down. When Lenny shut off the feed to get rid of Donald, Callie swooped in to completely derail things and discredit Ned by throwing him off his game in a big way with the revenge porn video. The discovery of a second and not quite identical suicide note with an extra line in it was extremely interesting, and the subsequent digging up of the time capsule added a whole new layer of intrigue. At the very least, they managed to convince Gina that her husband didn’t kill himself, which should count for something. Brittany continues to be a tremendous asset to the case with her befriending of the cop who stopped Billy, and her parole officer should really believe that she has a viable job that she also happens to be good at. Lucy’s new relationship with Donald is definitely peculiar, and it seems that she’s now in potential danger with people who want to hear from Donald following her to deliver messages. Donald is an enigma even to Wendell, a man who can call him out on the weirdness of his clicking and communicating, and I think it will be a while before we can truly understand him.
