You're welcome! I just remembered that the case of Rosie Larson actually spills over into season two, but be patient with the show; you won't be disappointed.

Hey guys, I know I started this thread, and so glad everyone's enjoying 'Bosch.' I'd like to recommend a few more high quality shows in the same vein. Maybe many of you have already seen some of these:

The Americans - A Russian married couple with two children that are spies posing as Americans. Their cover is that they own a travel agency. The children are clueless to who their parents really are....but that will soon change. The kicker: Their next door neighbor "Stan," that they become good friends with is married and has a son. Also? He's an FBI agent!

The Five - This is a British crime drama on Netflix. "The Five" title represents five childhood friends in different walks of life; the lawyer in the group had a brother that went missing in the woods by his house when they were children. They were all out playing, and this now missing brother decided he wanted to walk back to the house while everyone else continued on their hike; the thing is, he never made it back home, and was never seen again. Fast forward to the present day, and one of the friends in the group that's a detective and his partner get called to a crime scene in a hotel where a couple were found murdered. The mystery? Why the missing brother's DNA has been found at that crime scene....

Ozark - This is on Netflix with Jason Bateman (Marty) as the lead. He plays an accountant who's business partner cheated one of their Mexican drug lord clients. When the drug lords finds out he has money missing, things get ugly; REALLY ugly! Marty has to figure his way out of this one, to not only saved himself, but his family and his business. You won't believe how crazy this all gets!

Homeland - This is on Showtime, but for 8.99 per month you can add it to your Amazon Prime subscription if you don't have cable; or have it, but don't have this channel. This stars Claire Danes as top notch bi-polar CIA agent Carrie Mathison. This show is great because they go on location often, which makes for good back drops. But the acting is SUPERB; one of the best shows on TV if you like spy/political stuff. The show also follows real life current events. To go in depth about how awesome and profound the writing and acting are would require too much time.

The Killing - This show used to be on AMC, then Netflix picked it up. I believe there are four seasons. It's about a female/male detective pair (Merieille Enos, and Swedish actor Joel Kinnaman) working crimes in Seattle. This is a show where a case is solved over the course of an entire season, and is adapted from the original version which is Danish. The case in season one is titled 'Who killed Rosie Larson?' About a young girl that goes missing, and the detectives believe someone on the local Indian reservation with it's large casinos knows what happened. Season one will have you guessing who the guilty party is till the very end....and you'll never guess who knew what happened to her all along.

The Night Manager - This is a British crime/political drama, and is an Amazon original show. Luxury hotel night manager and former British soldier Jonathan Pine (Tom Hiddleston) is recruited by Angela Burr (Olivia Colman), an intelligence operative. He is tasked to navigate Whitehall and Washington, D.C. where there is an alliance between the intelligence community and the secret arms trade. He must infiltrate the inner circle of arms dealer Richard Onslow Roper (Hugh Laurie), Roper's girlfriend Jed (Elizabeth Debicki), and associate Corkoran (Tom Hollander). When I tell you I can't wait till season two....I mean EXACTLY THAT! So, so, good!!
We're finishing up Season 1 of BOSCH now. Really enjoying it. Well written, great acting, and the directing is just gorgeous. I have never seen Los Angeles look this beautiful onscreen.

Seconded recommendation for THE AMERICANS and HOMELAND. Both great shows. I had a hard time finishing OZARK. Unlike a lot of these crime shows, I had no sympathy for anyone in that story except for the innocent kids. The protagonists were just as vile and unlikeable as the antagonists. There was no one to root for.

Oh I loved Ozark. I feel like it is very well written, very well acted, and offers a lot of insight into human nature.

I'm enjoying Bosch too.

I started Bosch over the weekend. It's good so far. Ozark is one of my favorites.
