TV Show Recommendation: Bosch (2014-2021)

Bosch is about an LAPD detective named Harry Bosch juggling his career and maintaining his strained relationship with his ex-wife Eleanor Wish and daughter Maddie who live in Las Vegas. The show is adapted from Michael Connelly’s books and created by Eric Overmyer. Each of the 68 episodes in the seven seasons is 51 minutes and has an TV-MA rating. The cast is first rate with Titus Welliver as Harry Bosch, Madison Lintz as Maddie Bosch, and Sarah Clarke as Eleanor Wish. Jamie Hector plays Jerry Edgar, Amy Aquino as Grace Billets, Lance Reddick as Irvin Irving, DaJuan Johnson as Rondell Pierce, Scott Klace as John Mankiewicz, Mimi Rogers as Honey Chandler, Jacqueline Obradors as Christina Vega, Troy Evans as Johnson/Crate, Gregory Scott Cummins as Moore/Barrel.

The first season starts with Bosch (Titus Welliver) in court over a possible bad shooting while trying to solve a murder of a boy beaten to death. The second season continues with new cases including the murder of his mother. The third season involves more of his daughter and further narrowing of who killed Bosch’s mother. The fourth season deals with the murder of a civil rights attorney along with Eleanor Wish going back to work for the FBI. The fifth season involves Bosch going undercover during a drug operation and even though his face has been plastered all over the TV and newspapers, I liked this season the best. The sixth season continues with Maddie still trying to figure out what to do for a career (lawyer or police officer) and her dad having to work with the FBI. The seventh season closes out with an apartment fire that was intentionally set and leads Bosch again down many roads to solve the crime. This time Bosch hits a one-way street and sets up the decision for Harry Bosch to continue in Bosch: Legacy, which has one season and the second to air in 2023.

I rate Bosch FOUR FINGERS and ONE THUMB at 100%.
