Bull: Season 1 Reviews

January 25, 2019
There's probably an interesting show to be made about this line of work, but "Bull" quickly lapses into the standard prime-time bull.

If you're tired of high-concept dramas and serialized offerings that require far too much viewing time in your already jam-packed schedule, Bull is certainly a light, breezy offering that could help you unwind after a long Tuesday.

I doubt it's possible for a CBS legal drama starring former NCIS player Michael Weatherly and debuting between NCIS and NCIS: Los Angeles not to be a hit.
September 20, 2016
It's a little ridiculous, and rarely convincing.
September 20, 2016
Even Weatherly's most devoted fans may find this one a load of bull.

Bull isn't trying to be a bad show. It just is.

But wait! This is something different - it's about a trial consultant who advises clients about how to choose and influence a jury. If you think that's going to make this series something special, you may need some analysis of your own.

Nothing against Mr. Weatherly, whose likability transfers easily to the new series. It's the premise of the show that's off-putting.

Weatherly is a solid actor as well, but his performance in Bull isn't enough to overcome that show's bad writing.

Bull is sleek in look, pace and technique - and crafty enough to indulge CBS' trademark dollop of human feeling amid the flash. But it's essentially breezy TV junk food, leaving behind a prefab aftertaste.

A little too much of a Xerox of a Xerox of a Xerox.
September 19, 2016
A misconceived mistake in most every way.

If Bull had been watching me watch, he'd have known I was inclined to vote the show guilty - of being thoroughly missable.
September 16, 2016
Weatherly is the here, the now and the only overriding reason to watch Bull. On his own or in the NCIS ensemble, his star quality is obvious and likely enough to carry Bull through a multi-season run.

The show itself is totally ridiculous, in concept and execution.
