Bosch Season 3 Review

Five episodes were provided prior to broadcast.

There are two questions a viewer might ask going into the third season of Bosch. The first is what Bosch offers that other television shows about homicide detectives do not, and the second is what a third season of Bosch offers that the first two seasons did not.

The first of these answers comes easily: Bosch offers one of the most patient, intelligent, intriguing police procedural narratives on television, eschewing cliffhangers and easy answers while embracing slow pacing, character development, and escalating tension. Harry Bosch (Titus Welliver) is a compelling character, a far-from-perfect father chased by his childhood demons. The directing, the acting, and the writing all hold attention and merit high ratings. Even the cinematography deserves praise. Unlike many other mystery shows – think Foyle’s War or Sherlock – Bosch does not fall apart with hokiness when it comes time for a shootout or car chase.

Major Crimes Boss Previews Andy's Fate and the Fight for Taylor's Job, Makes Us Very Afraid of Hit-and-Runs

Major Crimes Boss Previews Andy's Fate and the Fight for Taylor's Job, Makes Us Very Afraid of Hit-and-Runs
Certain showrunners bring certain traits to the interview table. Marc Guggenheim isn’t afraid to call out ‘shippers. Yankees fan Adam Horowitz tries to slip in baseball “spoilers.” Shane Brennan practically wrote headlines for you (“Do not miss the first 45 seconds!”).

As for Major Crimes creator James Duff? Over the years (The Closer‘s run included), I have learned that often when I question the TNT drama’s inclusion of a particular crime, he is at the ready with a wealth of real-life facts to support his storytelling decision. Such as when I asked why the Major Crimes team would

From Must-See TV to Peak TV: 20 Years of covering television
If you were a TV critic from 1956 to 1976, you would have witnessed some big changes in the business: the rise and fall of the Western as the dominant primetime genre, or the color TV boom, or CBS' shift from silly rural comedies to socially conscious ones like All in the Family and M*A*S*H. If you covered the beat from 1976 to 1996, you would have written about Hill Street Blues and its many imitators, the classic years of SNL, and the early days of original cable programming. Almost any 20-year span would give you a front row seat to enormous artistic and technological change. As of this week, I've been professionally writing about television for exactly 20 years(*), and it's safe to say that the only two-decade period that featured a more radical transformation in how television was made and consumed would be back when the medium was first introduced into America's living rooms.

‘Justified’ Finale: Stars and Creator Break Down That Twist-Filled Ending (Spoilers)

‘Justified’ Finale: Stars and Creator Break Down That Twist-Filled Ending (Spoilers)
Spoiler warning: Do not read on unless you’ve seen the “Justified” series finale, “The Promise.”

In what was perhaps the most unexpected twist of “Justified’s” six season run, once the dust had settled on the unpredictable series finale, all of our favorite characters actually succeeded in leaving Harlan alive. Despite the bloodshed and violence that punctuated our core trio’s lives (as is the case with most characters written by Elmore Leonard), all three managed to achieve the closest thing to a happy ending they were ever likely to get, with Raylan (Timothy Olyphant) moving to Florida to be close to his daughter, Willa; Ava (Joelle Carter) making a home for herself and her son Zachariah in California; and Boyd (Walton Goggins) finding some modicum of peace in jail after regaining his faith, despite being left unaware of his son’s existence and being told that Ava had

'Justified' producer on who lived and who died in the finale, and a Mags cameo that wasn't

'Justified' producer on who lived and who died in the finale, and a Mags cameo that wasn't
With "Justified" over (here's my series finale review), I got on the phone with showrunner Graham Yost to discuss why certain characters lived, others died, and which characters (Mags? Quarles?) he might have brought back under different circumstances, all coming up just as soon as I come back here with a jackhammer... I want to start with the hat, because I know it was one of the few significant creative disagreements you ever had with Elmore (Leonard). At what point did you decide you wanted Raylan to end the series wearing the smaller Stetson that met with his approval? Graham Yost: Pretty early on in the season, we knew we wanted to create a character who really modeled himself after Raylan to one degree or another, and he would get a hat, and Raylan would end up with the bad guy's hat. It's still not a perfect match for what Elmore wanted,

Series finale review: 'Justified' - 'The Promise': Fire in the hole!
"Justified" has come to an end. Yesterday, I published some overall thoughts on the series. Tonight, I have an interview with Graham Yost about who lived, who died, and why, and I have a review of the series finale coming up just as soon as we identify the worst possible ice cream flavor... "We dug coal together." -Boyd Given all the plates left spinning at the end of "Collateral," Yost — who wrote the finale with longtime "Justified" writers Fred Golan, Dave Andron and Benjamin Cavell — could have very easily gone to FX and requested 90 minutes or more in order to properly wrap things up. Instead, "The Promise" clocks in at only a few minutes longer than average (there was at least one episode last season that was longer than this), and it all but concludes the season's many intersecting plotlines by the halfway point, even putting on "You'll Never Leave

'Bosch' star Titus Welliver: 'Maybe I'm just a cop without a badge'

'Bosch' star Titus Welliver: 'Maybe I'm just a cop without a badge'
Titus Welliver isn't the first actor I might have thought of to play Lapd homicide cop Hieronymus "Harry" Bosch, hero of 17 best-selling mystery novels and counting by Michael Connelly (plus multiple appearances in Connelly's "Lincoln Lawyer" series). But that's more because the book series started so long ago, and has allowed Harry to age in real time, so my mental image of him is much older than the "Deadwood" alum. In "Bosch," a new TV series whose first season can be streamed on Amazon Prime starting today, Welliver plays a younger and slightly mellower version of Harry. Connelly and producer Eric Overmyer ("The Wire," "Tremé") adapted the first season from pieces of three different Bosch novels ("The Concrete Blonde," "City of Bones" and "Echo Park"), and tweaks some biographical details. (Over the course of the early books, for instance, Bosch got married, divorced, and had a daughter who's on the

TV Review: Amazon’s ‘Bosch’

TV Review: Amazon’s ‘Bosch’
After a charmed run with comedies, Amazon’s first stab at drama, “Bosch,” doesn’t quite deliver. Adapted from Michael Connelly’s L.A.-centric novels, the series has the texture and tone of an old-fashioned detective yarn, casting Titus Welliver in the kind of role James Garner would have played in his heyday. But the transition from page to screen — overseen by Eric Overmyer, who casts fellow alumni from “The Wire” in key roles — proves too talky in places and clunky in others. Good casting and a strong sense of L.A. noir make the series watchable enough, but four episodes in, this page-turner feels undercooked.

The well-traveled Welliver (whose roles range from “Lost” to “Deadwood” to a memorable cop turn in “Brooklyn South”) plays Harry Bosch, an ex-special-forces officer turned Lapd detective who’s something of a dinosaur in his corner-cutting approach to the job. As a consequence,

Watch Jamie Hector and Lance Reddick in First Trailer for Amazon Detective Series 'Bosch'

  • ShadowAndAct
I'm glad this was picked up to series. I thought it was the best of all of Amazon's freshman class of pilots that were tested a year ago, and is now set to premiere (a 10-episode season) on Friday, February 13, on Amazon's Prime Instant Video. Based on Michael Connelly's international best-selling Harry Bosch book series, "Bosch" stars Titus Welliver as Harry Bosch, Jamie Hector as Jerry Edgar, Amy Aquino as Lt. Grace Billets, Lance Reddick as Deputy Chief Irvin Irving, and Annie Wersching as Julia Brasher, with Sarah Clarke as Eleanor Wish and Jason Gedrick as Raynard Waits.  The series follows the relentless Lapd homicide detective as he pursues...
