  • Arts of War on the Web » Harry Bosch Comes to the (Computer) Screen
    which stars Titus Welliver above left in the title role is a treat for Harry Bosch fans as our flawed hero and his LAPD world come to life remarkably vividly The plot is an amalgam of Boschian adventures The one hour show begins with a flashback of Harry tracking down a criminal and killing him in a dark alley Did he do it in self defense or out of pure hatred He is exonerated by the LAPD but faces a civil wrongful death lawsuit Meanwhile Bosch gets enmeshed in a perplexing murder case All of the elements of the novels shine through in this dark film Welliver is angst ridden and angry and devoted to solving the murder case he s working on The other actors are quite good including Troy Evans a VVA member and recipient of the VVA Excellence in the Arts Award who has a small role as a grumpy detective The directing is tight The atmosphere of the movie feels like a Harry Bosch novel Every scene was shot in Los Angeles adding to the verisimilitude A Harry Bosch fan couldn t ask for more except for more episodes which will be forthcoming By the way Harry s service in the Vietnam War is not mentioned in the pilot there s a one hundred per cent chance it will be as the series continues Marc Leepson Comments Off on Harry Bosch Comes to the Computer Screen Posted on February 8th 2014 in Book News TV Series Comments are closed Contents Unsung Heroes Art Exhibit in Boston Bobbie Ann Mason Receives Kentucky Literary Honor Creative Writing Contest The Jeff Sharlet Memorial Award for Veterans Veterans in Politics radio The Photography of Muhammad Abdus Sabur in NYC New VN War Exhibit Opens at Army Heritage Center in Carlisle
