Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Bosch: Legacy is the second installment of the franchise based on the popular crime novels written Michael Connelly. There are violent physical assaults, shooting and stabbing scenes, some drinking and prescription pill use, and frequent cursing. Criminal and private investigation cases also deal with things like sexual assault, organized crime, and child abandonment.
Is It Any Good?
This solid latest installment of the Bosch crime drama franchise picks right up where the original series left off. As Bosch, Honey Chandler, and Maddie negotiate the changes in their personal and professional lives, they are also tasked with figuring out how to stay true to what they believe in while navigating the rules and procedures imposed on them when investigating, arresting, and defending alleged criminals. Meanwhile, like its sister series, each episode centers on the hard-edged Bosch, who has lost faith in the legal system, but still tries to do good. Overall, fans of the franchise will find Bosch: Legacy entertainingly familiar.
