Trivia

Underneath Bosch's desk pad there are several photos of people, neatly labelled with names. In the Harry Bosch novels it is explained that the depicted people are the victims of unsolved homicides, placed there by Bosch so he would constantly see and never forget to keep looking for the perpetrators. One of the photos in the episode shows a girl named Cielo Azul. In the novels Cielo is the daughter of former FBI agent and friend of Harry''s, Terry McCaleb, rather than a (direct) homicide victim.

Goofs

When Bosch and Edgar leave the courthouse (0:42:10) to go to the morgue Harry's hair is long. By the time they get to the morgue Bosch's hair is short. They either stopped at the barber on the way to the morgue or they filmed the morgue scene later and Titus got a haircut. See more »

Alternate Versions

The original pilot that debuted in 2014 was reworked prior to the 2015 series debut. Some casting changes were made (Mimi Rogers replaced Amy Price-Francis), some scenes were added, and plot points reworked (a reporter character who was originally Bosch's dupe becomes a more realistic Internet age reporter.

Titus Welliver Nailed Harry Bosch
7 February 2014 | by StevieDSee all my reviews

I always pictured Bruce Willis as Bosch, but Titus Welliver's portrayal just fits Harry Bosch to a T. The pilot was excellently cast and I particularly liked seeing Alan Rosenberg in his role. I felt immersed in viewing it, just like I get immersed when reading Michael Connolly's works. The pacing was perfect. I love how it was filmed. It captured Harry's LA perfectly, even down to his house.

The pilot episode also captured many story arcs ... there's a lot of depth in there. Kudos to Amazon for showing this in this manner. It's a big part of the future of broadcast drama and is a way to counter Vegas with Dennis Quaid being canceled in spite of top 20 ratings because it delivered the 45+ demographic that TV networks don't give a hoot about. I hope Bosch goes on. I joined Amazon Prime, for the very reason that if this show gets the go-ahead, I want to watch it religiously.
