For those who haven't heard and are interested a new pilot episode was introduced on Amazon Prime Video featuring Michael Connelly's Harry Bosch. Here's a link http://www.oregonlive.com/books/index.ssf/2014/02/michael_connellys... to the story about the endeavor and there's a link within the article that allows you to watch the show (I think even if you don't have Amazon Prime Video) because they want viewers to vote on whether or not to make a series based on the show.
I watched it and thought it was excellent and Michael Connelly was very much involved in the making of the show.
I saw the pilot over the weekend and liked it a lot, agree with everything you said here.
Glad you enjoyed it, Dana.
My only problem is if they pick it up. I'll have to decide whether or not to get Amazon Prime. I'm not a member, I only did a month trial and I cancelled it. Not enough different offering compared to what I can get on Netflix.
Same issue here as well.
We were in the same boat, but may fall in the other direction. If only a matter of video on demand, we'd have stayed with Netflix. The free, expedited shipping of Amazon orders is something Netflix can't match. Now, if Netflix hadn't broken their DVD and online components apart a few years (against my advice, I might add), we'd be staying.
We watched and were disappointed--especially my wife who has not read the books and has heard me rave about them. Don't worry. We will not be voting.
It was announced yesterday that it had been picked up by Amazon Studios.
I saw that and was going to post it but then Connelly came out with a post saying it was not yet confirmed. Weird, but it looks pretty solid.
Also saw Chris Carter's THE AFTER got picked up also. I liked that one, too.
I never saw Connelly say that. One would think he should know.
I'm not a fan of the actor that is playing Bosch and he isn't who I imagine Bosch to be. Still, it would be nice if this deal really works.
I agree with David. If the other episodes are as good as the pilot, Bosch could be the best cop show in decades.
