Complex lead, dark cases make for a compelling cop drama.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (2 ):
Kids say (1 ):

Inspired by Michael Connelly's bestselling crime novels, Bosch blends plot lines from two different Harry Bosch books with new material to create an ultimately compelling original series that's part crime drama and part character study. But whether you enjoy Amazon's take on Bosch will largely depend on how much you enjoy Bosch himself, because, in many ways, it's all about him.

Welliver effectively shoulders that burden with a portrayal that's both gritty and playful, and he generally makes the dialogue work -- although some of the show's secondary characters are less than believable. What really sells the series though are the cases themselves, which hook you with their horribleness and haunt you with their humanity.
