Tried it a few years ago after Breaking Bad and couldn't get into it.

Just gave it another go and watched all five seasons and it's absolutely brilliant.

Queen of the South is also very good..
Similar, took me a couple of goes to get into better call Saul as presumed it was just a cash in.

I much prefer it overall to BB now. First couple of seasons of BB were good but just went to to complete bollocks. Better call Saul has kept the same quality throughout and the storyline with his brother was massively touching.

Goliath on Amazon prime is a good one, Bosch is reasonable but nowhere near as good as the books. Get Shorty on Sky is worth a watch

I'm going to get Amazon soon just so I can watch Bosch. I've read all the books and even met Michael Connelly at a book signing. I was hoping the TV series would be good because he's been heavily involved in production .
In the books Bosch comes across as a bit of a line wolf and decent bloke - in the series he’s a bit of a tosser

I think the problem is as well I've read the books for 20 odd years and I've got a mental picture of what Bosch looks like...I always thought a younger Gene Hackman. Seeing a trailer of the show and Titus Welliver and its not doing it for me but I'll give it a go.

And I think that's the point, my mental picture of Bosch want what is in the series.

They've made 5 seasons so must be well received overall, I'll return to it one day and find I like it probably.

Exactly the same for me, thought it was bit slow to start with (maybe I was expecting/wanting the same pace as BB) but soon got into it.

Once Mike, the Mexican twins, Gus and some of the other Characters turn up it was just like watching BB only better!

Absolutely brilliant series!

Just finished season 3 (& last) of Sneaky Pete from Amazon, really enjoyed it...

Done Better call Saul, need a new series, so this Bosch is good?
