Reception

Reviews of Bosch -have beens Generally positive. Metacritic gives the series a score of 71 ( out of 100 ) based on 16 critics. [17]

Cory Barker of TV.com wrote that the series is “rock-solid and enjoyable without ever making much of an attempt to push boundaries,” and praised Amazon Studios for “producing a show based on a book that somehow reproduces the experience of reading . ” [18]

Neil Genzlinger of the New York Times wrote that, despite an “impossibly long” “list of brooding, taciturn small-screen police detectives,” Bosch “proves gripping” because its “plotting and pacing … draw you in … like A good page-turner. ” [19]

Noel Murray of the AV Club remarked that “the best thing about Bosch is how well it catches Connelly’s Los Angeles,” while noting that the series’ biggest stumbling block is that stubbornly slow-paced ” Drip approach makes sense. ” [20]

Brian Lowry of Variety wrote that “the series has the texture and tone of an old-fashioned detective yarn,” but said that the transition from page to screen … proves too talky in places and clunky in others. He remarked that the show boasted “good casting and a strong sense of LA black”, but opines that the series “feels undercooked”. [21]

Hank Stuever of The Washington Post called Welliver’s performance “nicely built out of smirks and smolders,” and wrote that the show’s unvarnished, unglamorous LA is a far more intriguing, far more complex setting for a story. ” [22]

Brian Moylan of The Guardian Praised the ” black ” feeling of the show and regarded it a Step Above NCIS , goal Did not like the Similarities to too many other cop shows, calling the series “samey.” [3]
