For Anyone who has Amazon Prime....

Postby Lord Jim » Sun Feb 28, 2016 5:15 pm

and likes murder mystery dramas, I highly recommend Bosch...

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt3502248/

We just finished watching the 10 episode season one (season two is scheduled to be released March 11th)

It stars Titus Welliver, and I wasn't sure I was going to be able to get past seeing him as that campy character he plays in the Comcast Business commercials, but I almost immediately had that image out of my mind; Welliver is a very talented and versatile actor, and turns in a superb performance...

Great acting, great writing, great casting, great directing...

Absolutely nothing not to like....

Jim Bob says check it out.

I wholeheartedly agree!

Watched it as soon as it premiered, having watched the episode one and voted numerous times for Amazon to make the whole series. Welliver does Bosch terrifically, even though he doesn't match the Bosch from the books who I had in mind going in. I turned my BIL onto episode one while I was last visiting them in NY; by the time I'd left a week later, he and my sister had binge watched the whole series.

It was terrifically written and acted with great production values, can't wait for second series! :ok

We're planning to watch the first three episodes of the second season tonight...

(as I explained before, when you have kids, Friday nights just aren't as exciting as they used to be... 8-) )

Well, we've seen the first three episodes, (I've really liked Geri Ryan since her Seven-of-Nine days, so it's nice to see her getting work) it's still good quality compared to most of what's on, but I have to say that at least so far, the pacing seems to be considerably slower than in the original. Fewer suspense moments; not quite as crisp....

Agreed; I've watched all but the last 3 episodes and while it's very good, it's not quite as good as the first season. Still better than much that's on TV and Welliver's baby blues make up for any shortcomings. :P

Starting episode 5 of season 3; very good so far, Welliver is brilliant!

It's Jeri, not Geri. And there's an interesting bit of political trivia attached to her (which, knowing you, you probably already know): the publicity surrounding her divorce from Jack Ryan, the Republican candidate for the Senate seat Barack Obama was running for in 2004, was part of what guaranteed Obama his victory and his first Federal office, and the rest is history. Thanks again, Ms. Ryan! ;)

Yes, indeed I do...It was rather lurid...

It involved Jack frequenting sex clubs and compelling Jeri to come with him...(You're married to Jeri Ryan and you need to go sex clubs...go figure... :? )

In fact Ryan was favored in the polls to win the race until this came out and he was forced to withdraw...

He was then replaced as Republican nominee by the insufferable Alan Keyes, (who didn't even live in Illinois; they imported him from Maryland) handing Obama a complete lay-up...

And the rest is, as they say, history....

Just go into watching Bosch. Bosch has a bit of the Ray Donovan mood going. Really good so far (midway through season 2). For those who liked The Wire, there are a couple of alum from that A+ series doing similarly strong roles in Bosch.
