Last year, I watched the pilot to Bosch (starring Titus Welliver, who I liked as Silas Adams in Deadwood.) I didn’t expect to like it. But I was curious about the Amazon Prime people’s approach to original content. (Don’t have Prime? It’s awesome.) They made the pilot, then asked viewers to tell them if they should do a season. So I watched, just to have a voice. And I was very quickly hooked. Dark, edgy, great performances. The script is tight and based on Michael Connelly’s Harry Bosch book series. I voted, “Yes!” And I was apparently not the only one. Because Season One — ten, hour-long episodes — is made and launching to Amazon Prime on Feb 13.
That’s Friday the 13th, for the record. How awesome is that? Change the way TV gets green-lighted AND tempt the fates? Bold.
I hope this season is as good as the Pilot because I’m planning to watch. Anyone else? Let’s meet back here and discuss?
