Bosch Season 2

One of the first shows to be brought to life by Amazon Prime was Bosch. Detective Hieronymus 'Harry' Bosch was created by author Michael Connelly and played by Titus Welliver on the show.



IMDb interviewed Welliver this week, using Twitter to allow fans to ask their questions. I submitted the question: 



Welliver answered:



Bosch served in the Army, in the books he's a Viet Nam veteran and in the show he's a veteran of both the Gulf and Iraq wars. He joined the Los Angeles Police Department after leaving the Army and after making Detective spent several years in Robbery Homicide. Bosch was moved to Hollywood Homicide (a demotion of sorts) after shooting a suspected serial killer in questionable circumstances. Which is where we find him in the first eight books and Season 1 of the show.


The first season drew storylines from the books The Concrete Blonde, City of Bones and Echo Park. Bosch is being sued by the widow of the aforementioned serial killer suspect in a wrongful death civil suit. At the same time he is investigating the possible murder of a young boy, when his bones are found buried in the woods. 


Season 2 will draw from the books The Last Coyote, Trunk Music and The Drop. According to IMDb the plot is: "Harry Bosch is back on the job after a suspension. When a dead body found in the trunk of a car on Mulholland Drive appears to have mob connections, Bosch takes on a case that could prove his biggest challenge yet." Lance Reddick (Deputy Chief Irving), Jamie Hector (Detective Jerry Edgar), Amy Aquino (Lt. Grace Billets), Sarah Clarke (Eleanor Wish) and Steven Culp (D.A. Richard 'Rick' O'Shea) are all returning. Amazon Prime members will be able to watch all of season 2 from 11th March. If it's as good as the first season, most fans (including myself) will have watched it all before the weekend is over!



Update: I made a mistake above, Bosch served in Afghanistan not the Iraq war. Many thanks to Jana for pointing this out.

  1. Hi, thanks for these great recaps! One correction, the TV series Harry served in Gulf 1 and Afghanistan, not Iraq: https://twitter.com/welliver_titus/status/684418409048727554

The Snyder Cut | Wouldn't Be The First Time a Director Got a Second Chance

It seems that a fairly common occurrence amongst movies tied to Warner Bros. is the magical disappearing/reappearing director. Does that mean there's hope for the Snyder Cut? I certainly hope so! Ever since Justice League hit cinemas in 2017 - possibly even before - fans have been calling for Zack Snyder's original vision to be released. Snyder famously faced issues regarding the darker tone and longer run times his movies were taking, especially after the negative response to 'Batman v Superman'. This of course led to rewrites of the superhero team-up movie, and certain plotlines established or teased in 'BvS' - including the epic Knightmare scene - being dropped. The director then left the production after the tragic death of his daughter. Joss Whedon was brought in by the studio to finish the movie, this included the completion of post production and some major reshoots, further altering the movie. All of which resulted in a movie that is drastically

Dune | Moustache Trailer Reaction

Like one of the massive space ships that feature within it, the trailer for Denis Villeneuve's take on 'Dune' has landed... and it's magnificent. If you've not seen it, or you simply want to watch it again, you can check it out below: Trying to tame Frank Herbert's legendary sci-fi novel, it seems, is a challenge like no other. But if anyone is up to the task, it's a fair bet that it's Denis Villeneuve. The French-Canadian director is no stranger to reviving beloved sci-fi properties; Blade Runner 2049 is a worthy sequel to the original Blade Runner, and an outstanding movie in its own right - the best of 2017 in my opinion. Add to that his previous projects (Sicario, Arrival, Prisoners), and you've got a director with a talent for combining complex narratives, fascinating characters and stunning visuals, in a way that's both gripping and intelligible. From the moment the trailer begins you can feel the epic scale of what has been created here. G

Long Way Up | Average Guy TV Review

Ewan McGregor, Charley Boorman, and the Long Way Round team are finally back for their third epic adventure, and given how 2020 has turned out, they did it just in time. Right now it's the closest we can get to experiencing these far off places, making 'Long Way Up' a perfect piece of escapism. Beginning their trip at the southern most tip of South America, in Ushuaia, they'll travel 13,000 miles through 13 countries. Their route will have them criss-cross between Argentina and Chile, before entering Bolivia, Peru, Ecuador, Colombia, Panama, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Honduras, Guatemala, Mexico and the US, crossing the finish line in Los Angeles. This new adventure is quite different to their previous outings, and yet it all feels very familiar. Despite the gang being more than a decade older - not to mention some pretty life-changing motorcycle accidents for Charley along the way - the gang really haven't changed all that much. Not that that should come as much of a s
