All ten episodes of Amazon’s first original hour-long drama, Bosch, are now available to stream on Amazon Prime Instant Video.
Bosch is based on a series of Michael Connelly novels that follow Harry Bosch, a “relentless LAPD homicide detective who pursues the killer of a 13-year-old boy while standing trial in federal court on accusations that he murdered a suspected killer in cold blood.”
Primarily based on elements from Connelly’s books City of Bones (2002), The Concrete Blonde (1994) and Echo Park (2006), Harry Bosch’s investigation takes on a life and death urgency when a killer who has confessed to a boy’s murder escapes custody and begins a murderous rampage across Los Angeles. Bosch and the killer are locked in a cat and mouse game, with the killer taunting Bosch as the investigation turns deeply personal. The case unearths Bosch’s buried past as well as entangling his ex-wife and 14-year-old daughter. The season takes the viewer through back streets and neighborhoods of Los Angeles rarely seen on-screen.
Bosch stars Titus Welliver, who you may know from Lost. It also stars Jamie Hector, Amy Aquino, Lance Reddick, Annie Wersching, Sarah Clarke. and Jason Gedrick.
The new show is receiving generally favorable reviews. Of course, it has a lot to live up to considering Amazon’s latest offering, Transparent, won a couple Golden Globes.
