Bosch is a hit for all the right reasons

It's a show with a solid moral core, balanced with a realistic portrayal of politics, power and Los Angeles policing.

Bosch.
Here comes trouble

Bosch

Amazon Studios

2014-2021


THE HIGH CONCEPT:


Bold, butchy, sweaty crime series originating from the equally bold, butchy, sweary novels of the same name by Michael Connelly, and a drama that proved to be something of a hit for Amazon Video and lead actor Titus Welliver.


THE SHOW:



Seven visually striking, tightly written and punchily performed seasons follow Harry Bosch as he tackles serial killers, drug gangs, people traffickers, police corruption, love and loss (and lots of office politics) between 2014 and 2021. Looks like a very long (and violent) movie and has detailed character development that remains strong from start to finish.
