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

Breathe Easy: Average Guy Movie Review

Breathe Easy is an independent film, shot in multiple locations throughout ten countries. This global accomplishment took more than 20 directors roughly a year to make. Strange clouds have appeared in the sky across the globe and people are starting to behave in very strange ways. Governments are scrambling to deal with the crisis, but without knowing the cause, what can they do except...Breathe Easy? 



In a time when Hollywood studios can afford to film all over the world, it's easy for us to become indifferent. But an independent film shooting in ten countries including the UK, US, Australia and Hong Kong is an incredible achievement. And the results speak for themselves. Instead of focusing on one region or group during a global disaster - with small updates of events occurring elsewhere - the action is shared pretty much equally across all locations. It's an interesting look at how different people react to the same situation. Some will run, some will hide. Some will just ge…

Anticipated Movies of 2017

2017 promises an excellent line up of movies, will they live up to expectations? Only time will tell. These are some of my most anticipated movies of 2017:

Assassin's Creed - 1st January



I know it's in cinemas already but it deserves a place on this list. In what could possibly be the first truly successful adaptation of a video game, Callum Lynch (Michael Fassbender) experiences the memories of his ancestor Aguilar - a member of a secret society of assassins - thanks to Abstergo, a Templar controlled corporation and their revolutionary technology that unlocks 'genetic memories'.

Live by Night - 13th January



Ben Affleck directs and stars in this crime drama about organised crime in Prohibition Era America and the hunt for the 'American Dream'.

Lion - 20th January



The true story of an Indian boy who loses his family and is adopted by an Australian couple. Years later he uses Google Maps to find his village and make his way home to his family.

Baby Driver | Average Guy Movie Review

Edgar Wright puts his own spin on the heist/getaway movie in his latest outing. Named after the song by Simon and Garfunkel, Baby Driver tells the story of a skilled getaway driver who suffers from tinnitus, to drown out this "hum in the drum", Baby (Ansel Elgort) is constantly listening to music. In fact, the whole movie is set to music, even the gunshots sync with the beat of whatever song is playing.



It took Wright 16 years to write this script, and then another 6 to bring it to the big screen. But it's a movie that's well worth the wait! The opening chase alone is incredibly fun to watch, yet intelligent and tense as well. I wouldn't blame someone for thinking there's nothing new to do with a car chase, but I'd definitely encourage them to watch Baby Driver before they make up their mind. Especially considering all of the driving was done practically, no CGI or green screen here. Elgort was allowed to do some of the driving and what he couldn't or …
