Audience Reviews for Bosch: Season 1

  • Jul 07, 2022
    Such a fantastic adaptation of Michael Connelly's books! Phenomenal acting, great flow, good pace and fantastic cinematography. Must watch.

    I can't even get past the second episode. I just dislike everything about this character. Maybe its more of a "guys" show.
  • Jun 28, 2021
    This show has consistently been one of the best on television. It shows you the politics behind policing and isn't afraid of implicating cops and other members of the judicial system in the process. That's what makes it refreshing. It's also smart and doesn't insult your intelligence – like a UK show sensibility set in Los Angeles. I'll miss it.

    I am a long-time reader of the Harry Bosch books. I found this to be an excellent adaptation. Bosch's portrayal is spot-on. Complex, but ultimately he is all about a refusal to compromise on the truth and his mission. Terrible friend/ husband/ father, but dogged detective. The first season is light on any additional drama, and focuses on the cases, which is what really drives this series.
  • Mar 13, 2021
    Excellent story, well directed. Must watch patiently as it picks up pace.
  • Feb 09, 2021
    Absolutely brilliant. Watched it while the wife and I had to isolate and it literally kept us getting out of bed to binge the entire season. Welliver is extraordinary as Bosch but to single him out doesn't do justice to the other brilliant performances. Be advised watching this show is dangerous and you'll likely end up binging the other 5 seasons directly after.

    It would be pretty good, but the actors look at the camera ALL of the time, which is really off putting. I've never seen a production quite like it for that. Terrible job from the Director to let this stuff go. No decent Director would not film the shot again, doesn't do a lot for actor credibility either. The looking into camera does get slightly better as the seasons go on but continuity is shocking. This isn't a soap where deadlines are soooo tight. The car scene in S4 Ep6 is shocking. Jerry's headrest moves up and down so much it sends you dizzy. Edited - Up to season 5 now and although it has got better it still happens which keeps reminding you that you are watching a tv show. The plot and the actors are good but the Director/Producer should do shampoo Ad's Margot Rose plat a 1 minute role in 5/3 and looks more at the camera than Jerry, why not re-shoot that scene??? continuity 1/10 - Production 1/10 - Direction 1/10 - Is the camera person wearing a flashing hat!

    Bosch season 1 is full of twist and turns. Titus Welliver is excellent playing the dry, cunning, veteran cop known as Harry Bosch. The antagonist Waits is perfect for Bosch. If you like crime shows, you must give Bosch a watch.

    Starting is not perfect but not so sluggish. Story line kept me watching it.
  • Oct 03, 2020
    The Michael Connelly Bosch series is the best book series ever! Connelly is a great author packing continuous story and action in a very readable form. I've watch the entire Bosch TV series (seasons 1-6 so far). Season 1 was the worst but was still excellent and the seasons just keep getting better. I normally don't care for the streaming of a single story over a whole season, this format usually seems like 2 to 4 hours of television stretched out over 8 to 12 hours. Connelly provides an abundance of material in his books which packs the TV series with material, and they don't try to make one season based on a single book. An excellent, gritty police procedural, five stars all seasons! If you haven't already read the Bosch books, do it! Starts with "The Black Echo".
