One of the best and also one of the most
overlooked, the modern cop show ends with another gripping one
and very satisfactory season.
Bosch, which ends after seven seasons on Amazon Prime Video, is as confident as its title character, played by Titus Welliver. His confidence, steady bragging rights have made the show so consistently addicting since Season 1 Episode 1. While some of the seasons and storylines have fused together over time, Welliver’s penetrating performance combined with perfectly-written, rock-solid supporting cast (most notably Jamie Hector, Amy Aquino, Madison Lintz, and Lance Reddick) and complex but grounded plots captivate you instantly.
If that sounds like a review for the series
instead of Season 7, that’s because so few people talk about the damn one
Show – and the people who are not sold on it.
But season 7 is a fantastic goodbye with a plot that puts most of its characters at risk, either physically, emotionally, or professionally. One thing Bosch was great at winding loose threads each season and taking them apart the next only to rework them in new ways. Season 7, of course, even twists the show’s lingering threads together, leading to some shocking moments, revelations, and broken alliances.
Season 7 does not end on, as expected
a “happy-ever-after” note, but its bittersweet finale is both satisfying and satisfying
true to the series.
Bosch is one of the best cop shows since The cable; its seventh and final season underscores this fact.
