It's best if you try to forget the McConahey movte. This serise is closer to what Michael McConnely wrote. It's well cast, well timed and just a delight to watch. I'm on 8 of 10. McConnley has two characters Streaming (LL & Bosch). McConnely also does a cameo if you can catch it.

I finished. It's really a good show with a great cast (Neve Campbell outside Scream) and Becky Newton. I put it up there with Reacher.

I am in episode 5. The Mickey Haller with a accented voice is really messing with my head; not because of the McConaughey film (which I think was great), but because of all of the audio books of the Haller novels. Just a tad bit of cognitive dissonance.

I like the Lorna character - of course - what is NOT to like - and Cisco too, although he seems a tad "small."

I love that this is faithful to the book, and not a mashup like the Bosch series which really turned me off.

The jury selection episode was great; I really hope they do a season on the Fifth Witness. One of my favorite books, and one I have taught in class.

Watched the first two episodes last night. Seems to be exactly as i remember the book. I like it so far. The Lincoln SUV doesn't feel right though instead of sedans.

Agreed. The SUV seems wrong. Lol

Enjoyed it quite a bit. 4 more Haller books according to my list. Wonder what they will do about the Bosch appearance in several?

It would be fun to see a Netflix/Amazon crossover.

I remember something like that when Lincoln Lawyer was announced. I don't know the stories can be told without him so they will need to cast someone else for the part.
Awkward!

That's what I did, will probably end up listening to them all again...
Took me awhile to get used to, but I think the casting is pretty much spot on.
The trial scenes were incredible, I truly hope they do The Fifth Witness.
