  1. Goliath: Season 2 All Episodes Talk

    The ending left me angry. Like someone above said, there was no justice. I feel like my time was wasted.

    Applause!
  3. Goliath: Season 2 All Episodes Talk

    I've just finished the first episode. I just came here to check for comments from the first episode. I don't want to read any more than that because of spoilers, but was I the only person who felt the heat from the instant chemistry between the mayor candidate and Billy in that first meeting? Whoa! That was some great acting.
  4. The reason they keep harping on Amy's plans is because they want the house. They should just come right out and say it: "Mom, you're in Dad's way. Move!" To which Amy can say, "Matt, build your own damn house."
  5. Sometimes I find even more flavor in re-heating. Auj could have found ways around the "soup drama". She was making a mountain out of a molehill.
  6. Um,,,crockpot,,,microwave. Re-heat.
  7. Back to last week's episode: During the meeting, when Matt interrupted Amy with, "You aren't listening", Amy should have told him, "I'll discuss this when you decide to show me some respect" and just leave. He was dismissive and has no respect for her opinion. Build your own house, Matt, on your own dime. You can have the construction costs later when and if the farm sells. THIS is what you agreed to. Apparently, there is nothing in the agreement that says the business (which Amy would have to sacrifice 50%) owes you a house. No one held a gun to your head to make you sign the divorce agreement. I still say Matt is conniving to get her off the farm and out of the business.
  8. Hey Auj: Go to the grocery store and buy your freakin' soup ingredients. Take them over to your parent's house and cook the darn soup. Take it home. Eat.
  9. Since I'm into genealogy I enjoy almost all the episodes. I just love history...anyone's history. I guess if you are not into history you can be forgiven a lack of knowledge on some things but I do expect people to know the highlights. I even enjoyed the Jean Smart episode even though it was a rehash of the Salem Witch Trials. We've seen it before but this one had it's own little side story. I also just love when they bring out original documents.
  10. I'm pretty sure that I understood Matt and Caryn to say that the AZ home was for long weekends and maybe a couple of weeks for the winter here and there. I don't think he has any intention of leaving the farm for any long period of time right now. We aren't seeing the scheming on camera but IMHO, Matt and Jeremy are slowly and meticulously shoving Amy off the farm. They are both devious. I wouldn't trust either of them. Amy doesn't really need that big house but stays just to piss Matt off. These people deserve each other.

    I agree. However, if you follow the secrets he disclosed he was responsible for numerous British and American deaths in WWII alone. We don't know what other deaths lead back to him, but I'm sure it's numerous. Sure, we didn't see his violence but none the less it was there. I also thought E's killing spree this season was gratuitous. My actual point was, like E and P, he was allowed to walk away.

    After putting more thought into it I went back and refreshed my memory on the spy ring known as the Cambridge Five. Kim Philby was revealed to be a member of the spy ring. He is considered the most sucessful spy of the Cold War. Working for British intelligence he was so prolific in supplying the Soviets with British and US secrets that Stalin feared he was a triple agent providing Soviet intelligence to British authorities. Reading the secrets that Philby gave to the Soviets will make your hair curl and your heart sick. He did it all by being patient and a real charmer. Everyone fell for him as a friend. One friend in particular was Nicholas Elliott, an MI6 officer. After reading about their friendship I liken it to Stan and Philip, even stronger. When Philby was first accused, Elliot staked his career on Philby's innocence only to be embarassed, like Stan, when the truth came out. The first time they suspected him he got out of it but became persona no grata because of the suspicion. When it finally was discovered to be true, they sent his dear friend Elliot to try to get a confession. He did eventually confess but later denied that he confessed. (It's a long story). Now to my point. The FBI, CIA and MI5 and MI6 were under serious scutiny when he was discovered. They had been through some very embarassing episodes. No one wanted the Philby scene to be exposed. After a few days of interrogation and, believe it or not, allowing him to return home each night, his KGB handlers whisked him away to Moscow. There's no doubt about it, he was allowed to run. No one wanted a public trial. The first few years he was on virtual house arrest in Moscow because they thought he might try to return to England, but later he was free to do as he pleased. He even eventually gave lectures to East German and Soviet intelligence officers. Philby claimed publicly in January 1988 that he did not regret his decisions and that he missed nothing about England except some "friends, Colman's Mustard, and Lea & Perrins Worcestershire Sauce". Philby died of heart failure in Moscow in 1988. He was given a hero's funeral, and posthumously awarded numerous medals by the USSR. So, while I despise Stan for letting them go (just as I hate that Philby was let go), it is not unprecedented. If you like reading about real spies, Kim Philby and the Cambridge Five will keep you busy reading for a long time.

    I have a real problem with the Renee thing. If she is KGB and is supposed to keep an eye on P & E, she knew Stan was wising up to them. He was giving all the signals of being on the scent. If she was there to protect P & E's identities then she could have warned the Center and gotten them out way before the heat was on. It would be in the Center's best interest to get them out. If they were captured and interrogated they could break and give up the Center's operational structure, etc. E & P were VIP Russian spies. A lot was invested in them. Yet, Renee gave no warning, at least that we saw. Otherwise, if she is a spy, was she only there to snoop on Stan's FBI work and/or to get her foot in the door of the FBI?

    And no drinks.

    I agree. Philip manipulated his "friend". Even with all his "est" crap, he wasn't honest. I'm not a hater. I've loved this show from day one. I'm just disappointed in the ending. To each his own. I just don't feel sentimental toward murderous Russian spies in my country. Stan knew one or both of them murdered The Teacups. He said so. He knew and still let them go. An idiot to the end. But then, his hands are not clean either. I just wanted him to redeem himself and he didn't. A pox on both their houses. Stan could have spoken to Oleg and taken care of the Gorby information.
