Critic Reviews for Bosch Season 2

All Critics (14) | Top Critics (3)

Bosch seems to be working toward an improved balance between accurately representing the demands of detailed police work and the excitement necessary in turning these authentic lives into entertainment.

Returning to these tales is like returning home.

Dec 11, 2018 | Full Review…

The pleasures of Bosch are narrow but intense. Along with the fealty to California noir come a convincing realism and an avoidance of contrived, sensational story lines.

Mar 10, 2016 | Full Review…

This round of Bosch reinforces the appreciation if you are already a fan, and will provide a quick conversion if you are new to the faith.

Dec 11, 2018 | Full Review…

Bosch Season 2 is long but lean, a neo-classical procedural that maintains a close shave. Everything about it is old school with a modern shine.

Dec 11, 2018 | Full Review…

By Season 2, Bosch trims down to a grizzly neo-noir, a Miami Vice for the True Detective fan, which should be celebrated as peak airport-novel TV.

Dec 11, 2018 | Full Review…

Few shows are so clearly solid and compulsively watchable without exactly grabbing you by the throat or forcing to tweet in all caps in your surprise of its latest twist.

Dec 11, 2018 | Full Review…

Bosch doesn't break any new ground but it deliver this brand of lean, clean detective storytelling in a murky culture better than anything else out there.

Mar 17, 2016 | Full Review…

Bosch has improved in all the right ways. I started watching it just to see what was up with the characters and ended up invested in a way season one never managed.

Mar 14, 2016 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Bosch is a fine piece of TV work, one of the best examples of how to take what works on tightly-formatted network crime shows and supplement it with some of the looser freedoms of pay-cable crime series.

Mar 11, 2016 | Full Review…

Bosch is a welcome change of pace from the many procedurals on the networks, especially those that overwhelm their stories with technological jargon.

Mar 11, 2016 | Full Review…

Bosch reinforces the binge experience as the equivalent of sinking into a good book.

Audience Reviews for Bosch: Season 2

  • Jun 09, 2020
    I think Bosch in season two gets a bit darker. you see a lot more of the characters who in season one were hiding a bit and not involved. take Madison Lintz. she was this person who Bosch sees every summer. any way 4 to go

    sEason 1 was four stars season two was not as interesting so i give it two stars hoping that season three rebounds, harry's wife is not an interesting character nor a talented actress in this role by any means, the crate and barrel guys are hillarious, nice to see recycled actors from The wire
