Titus Welliver has the star-making role of Harry Bosch, and he plays it to perfection. He may not look or sound like your pre-TV image of Harry might have been, but he surely captures the essence of the character. He has the rugged swagger mixed with the soulful eyes.
Rivers are some of the most diverse ecosystems on the planet. Rivers and lakes sustain more fish species than the sea even though they contain 600 times less water.
It seems you can't throw a stone in Hollywood these days without hitting someone who claims, at one time or another, they've had an idea they pitched stolen. This goes for both unknown writers, as well as established ones. But the thing to keep in mind here, is not whether they actually did.

Santa Barbara boy Jason Gedrick works hard and plays hard. Sounds cliche, but this guy sure knows how to live life to its fullest. He works like a mad dog, and when it's time to relax, he writes, golfs, cooks and does boxing. Jason -- you can come cook for me any day.
Netflix won, Hulu came in second. Amazon may be third but we won't know for sure until they cross the finish line. And the iconic broadcasters that built the TV industry and controlled it for the past 70 years are nowhere to be found.
I woke up and there were two versions of my latest book, The Choose Yourself Guide to Wealth, listed on Amazon. One was written by "James Altucher" and the other was written by "JAMES ALTUCHER" and had a mysterious "editor" named "MD. YEASIN HOSSAIN".
