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…

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. Gr…

Moustache Lockdown Streaming Survival Guide Part 6 | Home Before Dark

We're back on Apple TV+ this week, checking out one of Apple's new TV shows: Home Before Dark.

Ever since her Dad took her into the newsroom where he works, nine year old Hilde Lisko (Brooklynn Prince) has been fascinated with journalism. So fascinated in fact, that she started her own newspaper - The Magic Hour Chronicle. But when Matthew Lisko (Jim Sturgess) - Hilde's Father - loses his job, the family is forced to move to Matthew's home town of Erie Harbor, a place he hasn't been back to in many years. There, a chance encounter leads Hilde to look into a thirty year cold case, one that involved the murder of a teenage boy and tore the town apart. Could that be the reason why Hilde's Dad left and never came back?




I will admit that when my fiancé and I were checking out the new content available on Apple TV+ (we had just finished watching the availab…
