Moustache Lockdown Streaming Survival Guide Part 2 | Bosch


The lockdown continues this Easter weekend, and despite the absolutely glorious weather it's important that we stay at home. On that note, here's another TV show to keep you entertained; 'Bosch', available on Amazon Prime.

Check out part 1 of our streaming survival guide by clicking here.



Follow L.A.P.D. Homicide Detectives Harry Bosch (Titus Welliver) and Jerry Edgar (Jamie Hector) as they work to solve an endless stream of murders in the infamous Hollywood Division of Los Angeles. As well as a heavy caseload, the two must also navigate the perils of their personal lives, including marriage, divorce and parenthood. Their cases - some of which hit a little too close to home - often lead the two into trouble within the department and with the city's political hierarchy as well. But since when did that ever get in the way of the search for the truth? 



Based on the series of novels by Michael Connelly, each season beautifully recreates the books that inspired it, whilst also putting a fresh spin on the story. The show doesn't exactly stick to the standard "police procedural" format usually seen on TV, giving way to several intriguing plot lines and a wealth of supporting characters. Regardless of whether you're a fan of Connelly's work or have never heard of Harry Bosch, this is a fantastic show, a truly riveting watch.



There are currently five seasons available to stream on Amazon Prime, each consisting of ten episodes.



Season 1 (Based on The Concrete Blonde, City of Bones and The Black Echo)
After the skeletal remains of a child are uncovered in the Hollywood Hills, Bosch and Edgar get tangled up with a serial killer who targets young men. All the while, Harry is the subject of a wrongful death lawsuit, he's being sued by the widow of a man he killed in an on-duty shooting.



Season 2 (Based on The Last Coyote and Trunk Music)
The two detectives investigate the death of a movie producer, one with possible ties to organised crime in Las Vegas. A joint investigation between the Los Angeles and Las Vegas police departments sees the cops clashing with the FBI.



Season 3 (Based on The Black Echo, A Darkness More Than Night and The Drop)
Bosch has been looking into the unsolved murder of his mother, which lands him in hot water when a suspect he has been surveilling turns up dead. He has to deal with being prime suspect in one murder, whilst he and Edgar investigate the murder of a homeless veteran.



Season 4 (Based on Angels Flight)
When a civil rights lawyer with a history of taking on clients who sue the L.A.P.D. is found murdered, Bosch and Edgar are assigned to the task force responsible for investigating.



Season 5 (Based on Two Kinds of Truth)
Bosch goes undercover to investigate the murder of a pharmacist with possible links to an opioid ring. The detective must also seek the help of an adversary when a murder conviction from one of his earliest cases is called into question.



Season 6 will release in its entirety on 17th April, so now is the perfect time to catch up with - or to revisit - one of the best shows on streaming.

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 differen…

Dates for Phase 5 of the MCU may have been Leaked

After unveiling Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe at Comic Con last month, it's believed that plans for Phase 5 will be announced at D23. But have some of the release dates may have already been leaked?



Charles Murphy (@_CharlesMurphy) - someone who is known for revealing accurate info - has tweeted possible release dates for two upcoming movies. According to Murphy (which "could be subject to change"), Black Panther 2 will arrive in cinemas on 18th February 2022, and will be followed by Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 on 6th May 2022. These dates are similar to the movies that preceded them, Black Panther was released on 13th February 2018 and GOTG Vol. 2 on 27th April 2017. Both movies had a lot of success in their respective slots, so it makes sense that Marvel would attempt to continue that success with future instalments. It has also been confirmed by James Gunn, that he won't be working on GOTG Vol. 3 until after he's completed production of "The …

JOJO RABBIT | Moustache Teaser Reaction

If Top Gun: Maverick is the most exciting teaser of late, then the teaser trailer for "Jojo Rabbit" has got to be the most bizarre. If you haven't seen it, check it out below:


Taika Waititi's latest movie is based on the book "Caging Skies" by Christine Leunens, and tells the story of Jojo "Rabbit" Betzler (Roman Griffin Davis). A member of the Hitler Youth, Jojo's world view is turned upside down when he discovers his single mother (Scarlett Johansson) is hiding a young Jewish girl in their attic. And the only person he has to turn to as he attempts to deal with all that he's going through, is his imaginary friend...Adolf Hitler (Taika Waititi).

Now I know what you're thinking; "this sounds bat shit insane!" And to be fair, you're probably right. But Jojo Rabbit looks - in true Waititi fashion - absolutely hysterical. It is definitely something you have to see to believe, and that's just the trailer. One thing fans of …
