We just finished watching the final episode of another great season of Bosch. This was the sixth, and as it turns out, penultimate season.
If you are not familiar with the show, here is a brief description from Wikipedia:
Bosch is an American police procedural web television series produced by Amazon Studios and Fabrik Entertainment starring Titus Welliver as Los Angeles Police detective Harry Bosch. The show was developed for Amazon by Eric Overmyer and takes its inspiration from the Bosch series of Michael Connelly novels.
I had read a few of the books before the TV series made its debut in 2014, and based on how good the books were, I was confident the series would be as well.
I’ve written about the show before, in particular, the music of Harry Bosch. In the books, and the TV show, Bosch is a huge fan of jazz; in fact, his dog is named Coltrane. You can’t help but learn a little bit about jazz if you read the books.
Another trait of Bosch that carried over from the books to the screen was his preference for drinking Fat Tire beer; in the TV show, he is typically shown drinking one per episode.
So to celebrate the final episode of Season 6, and to honor Harry, we all (except our dog) decided to share a Fat Tire with him.
And who said product placement doesn’t work…
P.S. So does celebrity endorsement, apparently. This is embarrassing to admit, but one of the reasons we bought a Buick Rendezvous 17 years ago was because Tiger Woods was featured in its TV commercial. Sad, I know…
