Critic Reviews for Bosch Season 3

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (1)

It is so well engineered by its formidable creative team that it is like a ferocious fresh start for anyone coming to it for the first time.

Dec 11, 2018 | Full Review…

The show is getting better at dangling loose ends that may never be tied up. It is almost as though the creators of the series, like the characters on the screen, are making it up as they go along and aren't able to control everything that happens.

Dec 11, 2018 | Full Review…

I don't think there's anything better for binging on TV right now, and no show feels more comfortable with the length of its seasons.

Dec 11, 2018 | Full Review…

While the series boasts a good cast, it's Welliver's show. He brings a solid presence to the character of Bosch.

Dec 11, 2018 | Full Review…

It's definitely a different Harry Bosch than fans are used to.

Aug 26, 2018 | Full Review…

The first episode extends or introduces at least four distinct story lines, and it's a sign of the meticulousness with which the series is planned and plotted that one of them is being put in place for use in Season 4.

Jun 6, 2017 | Full Review…

After a second-season letdown, Bosch is back and filled with energy and quirky characters, continuing some previous story-lines and mining the books for some new ones.

May 2, 2017 | Full Review…

Bosch, as always, is at the center of the intricate plot.

Apr 25, 2017 | Full Review…

The second season and now the third aren't exact translations of the books, but they feel to me both like the Harry Bosch from the page and like a very solid TV cop drama.

Apr 19, 2017 | Full Review…

Bosch's pacing and plotting may drag at times, but in its third season the show remains as one of the best ongoing detective series.

    So good we watched it three times. I like how J. Edgar is portrayed here versus the book series, too. Titus is now very defini synonymous with Harry bosch.

    Best show ever! all 3 seasons +++++++

    The show surprised me again, it just got better. Now don’t get me wrong, if you aren’t interested in a trope-y cop noire series, then you still don’t want to watch this. My complaints in the past though have been addressed in a few ways. It isn’t just about Bosch anymore. He is still the main star, he will always be the main star, however we get to learn more about his partner, about the other cops and about Irving. The plot isn’t just about his mother. Oh, it is about his mother, but there are so many other plots, relationships, and encounters that you don’t feel quite so overwhelmed by it. To be fair though, I really dislike his ex-wife’s plot involving working for the FBI. I could do without her completely, and definitely without it. The show is very serialized, meaning the episodes bleed into each other. I know what happened in the season, but I would be hard pressed to point at the specific episode it happened in. The show is good at the long form of writing, but I am spoiled with most of my shows and sometimes wish there would be that “oh shit” episode. Pros: The writing is getting better. Cons: Repeat of season 2: Dear god can we stop with the murdered mother storyline? I hear they are writing season 4. I am definitely in on it.

    Another superb season that finds Bosch investigating the death of a war vet while preparing for the murder trial of a popular movie director, all which forces him to cross a line he can't come back from. Titus Welliver continues to shine as Bosch, playing him as straight-arrow detective who believes homicide investigation should be mission but compromises his own beliefs when he does something pretty disturbing. He gets great support from the rest of the cast, particularly Jamie Hector as his reliable partner & Madison Lintz as his daughter, both who challenge him at every turn. Behind the camera, the show runners craft another tense yet realistic crime series, notably in that Bosch, like most real-life detectives, work multiple cases as one time, and has to deal with office politics more than actually solving cases. Plus, at ten episodes, the season never feels too long and keeps you waiting for the next one. Overall, one of the best cop shows in years and a must for any Amazon Prime viewer.
