| Bosch is a hit in the making!
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!
