Having read all the books, Harry Bosch is my favourite Detective so I was a bit sceptical but had to watch.
So glad I did. Brilliant adaptation. I wasn't sure about the casting. Bosch of my imagination was a little taller. Now, he will forever be Titus. His voice is exactly how I imagined and the rest of the cast were fab. I really hope this show continues. Thanks Amazon. Michael Connolly and all cast and crew.

[Edited post-season release]

I have to admit to never having spent too much time working out what Harry Bosch would look like in real life, but Titus Welliver is perfect for Harry. So far I can see high production values, good visual direction, acting up to and beyond the levels you expect for this kind of cop drama. To a previous reviewer commenting on clichéd cop dramas, clichés don't necessarily mean it's bad :)

I do hope the voting ends up in favour of a full blown season of Bosch, I've been a fan of the books for years, and given some of the more hum-drum cop dramas out there, we do need something distinctive, and I think Welliver's delivery gives a nice strong lead for the series. I'll be very disappointed if we don't get more of this. Top marks Amazon Studios... gimme!

[Post Season release]

Well, after watching the re-edited Pilot, I was more than happy to finally get the whole season, and it didn't disappoint. Although the continuity with the books has the Series post-Eleanor Wish, and Post Daughter, there was still enough of Harry's backstory to roll alongside the main plot, and Titus Welliver really showed he can work the role as Harry. Welliver can be subtle, and when he needs to be, hard as diamond. The re-done credits really work with the show and Harry's Jazz taste as well, being Jazz-like, and contemporary and really set up the show for me.

Technically, the show is as the pilot, above par; and all the acting, from Jason Gedrick's wonderfully creepy Reynard Waits, to Lance Reddick's supercilious Irvin Irving was equally above par.

I really hope they keep this show on, a very good adaptation of the character and the book, no suprise given Connellys involvement but with so much depth to Harry Bosch and so many stories to plunder this has the potential to be a very enjoyable series.

I hope this is taken forward as a series as I loved this initial pilot episode. Great lead actor and storyline.

I am always wary of adaptions of books that I love as they frequently disappoint. Not the case here. I was really enjoying it and felt it finished too soon. I would be keen to see more episodes.

An artfully adapted screenplay fuses the best elements of Connelly's titular Hollywood cop series, such as, the labyrinthine plots, moral dilemma's and departmental skulduggery into something fresh with a nod to it's literary heritage. Whether by luck or design the mashing of several books into an extended plot beneficially creates a worn in feel that flatters the early episodes and by the end has you thinking this things been running as long Corrie. Titus Welliver's Bosch feels wrong at first but grows on you as he finds the right mix of obsessive determination, vulnerability and dutiful loyalty that defines his character. Interestingly, and perhaps why it took some getting used to and a credit to the adaptation, Welliver's Bosch seems more plausible, more connected and substantial than he ever appeared in print, but without trimming off - what were in my opinion - the heavy handed quirks and archetypes: the disastrous childhood, niche military experience, inappropriate Hollywood hills pad, unaccountable sexual attraction, preternatural ability to solve crime puzzles but not see the shafting he's about to get from the Boss etc. Somehow he's just more likeable. L.A. puts in a good turn as supporting actor, perhaps not as well as it did in the Shield but solid never the less.
She's a good-un that's for sure, not exceptional, it's too linear and easily accessible to be that, but then so are the books and just like them you'll likely be uttering, "Just one more Chapter", then three later find it's way past your bedtime.
Now with some tinkering and the pre-ordained cross pollination with The Lincoln Lawyer... that would be interesting.

This was a really very enjoyable season. I thoroughly enjoyed it and found it a refreshing change. I love the break from conversion where every episode is it's own little story but dilutes the whole. This was purely about the whole picture and no fluff or wishy washy filler episodes. It built strong characters, good relationships, a better knowledge and understand of the characters, both good and bad. There was a rich depth and a believability to it, especially considering the length of the cases showing not all mysteries are solved in 45 minutes but are an accumulation of long hours and hard work. It really felt like Bosch endued a lot and made you feel like you we following an actual investigation. The little intrigues, character interactions and torments really made this a show you could relate to on a human level and you get a truer understanding of what makes each of them tick. I really enjoyed this and am torn between wanting more or having it sweetly finish as this wonderful perfection without the typical slow decay shows so often have. This was perfect as it was but if it's brought back as well as this then it is welcome.
