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.

This is to be the third series of novels developed by Amazon Studios into a TV show. Michael Connelly's Harry Bosch novels are the source for one of the studios longest running shows; 'Bosch', starring Titus Welliver as the veteran LAPD Homicide Detective. Last year 'Jack Ryan' - based on the novels by Tom Clanc…

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 deat…
