Review of Episode 1, Season 2 - Bosch on Amazon

My wife and I binge watched Season 1 of Bosch over a weekend and just fell in love with the show. I summarize exactly what made the show so great in this post.

And so, last night, we settled in to watch, with great anticipation after the months of longing for more Bosch, Episode 1 of Season 2.

The first episode of anything needs to draw you in, hook you, win you.

My Verdict? Everything I love about the show is even better.

Where to start? Well, of course, with actor Titus Welliver. He is simply electric. He plays the character of Harry Bosch with this combination of reticence and intensity. 

I'm not going to go into detail on the emerging plot of Season 2, because I don't want to spoil anything for those of you readers who NEED IMMEDIATELY to go watch Season 1 so you can join the rest of us in the excellent programming available.

But suffice it to say that the episode was a crisply written and edited presentation of action, humor, intrigue, and emotion. 

And Jeri Ryan! That's right, Star Trek Voyager's Seven of Nine, Jeri Ryan is in Season 2. 

Amazon is producing the best television available right now. And Bosch, Seasons 1 and 2, are an example. Other great shows to go check out are Transparent, Man in the High Tower, Hand of God, and Red Oaks.

We're school teachers and, exhausted from a long week, we watched just Episode 1 last night. And we've resolved ourselves to try and watch Bosch just a few episodes at a time. Because last season, we were out of episodes fast and then missing the show!

We'll see how that goes... :)
