Trivia

When the tile character Harry Bosch states his full legal name on the witness stand, he says Hieronymus Bosch. Hieronymus Bosch was an early influential Netherlandish painter. Bosch's work often deal with dark and gruesome depictions of hell as well as fantastical imagery. Art historians have described Bosch's work as being 'pessimistic', 'difficult to translate to a modern point of view', and 'insightful into man's deepest desires and darkest fears'. See more »

Bosch is a hit in the making!
15 February 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Amazon Original's new pilot, Bosch, puts it all together: great writing, generous and subtle acting across the full range of characters, moody LA location set-ups (what one reviewer called using the location as a character), razor sharp editing and other production values. This is one of the best "TV" show I have seen in quite awhile. And for a pilot, it is a daring adventure into series-level plot arcs, and not just a pretty package wrapped up at the end of the show.

Connelley and Company's choice of Titus Welliver is particularly satisfying. A well-known face, but as far as I know, never a lead, and for that matter, never much of a sympathetic character, Welliver is deeply invested in the anti-hero character of Harry Bosch. Not just a film noir tough guy, but a deep soul revealed only in tiny bits that never bog down the narrative or the suspense.

Amazon could do far worse than to line this show up for 12-20 episodes in the next season!
