Really lives up to the title. Michael Weathely! *swoon* I so wanted him to have his own show, a GREAT show, something where he could really show off his leading man chops. Instead, he chose to do a show *very*loosely based on the life of Dr Phil (who also contributed to the writing). I can only assume most parts are ficionalized as Weatherly's character is 'irresistible to women.' "Phil, honey, let's get real, how's that mindset working for ya?" Plus it's a despicable* profession. Doing a mock trial for rich people or corporations to discover which jurors should be picked, then using the jurors to decide how the defence lawyer, expert witnesses and the accused should speak, wear, appear in court all just sucks. It betrays everything the scales of justice stand for, just because the richest people in society - with whom I have no beef, except when they pull this should-be-illegal BULL (see what I just did there...? ;) ) - then the scales of justice are no longer even. Ever wondered why rich people always, always, always get off with their charges? This show will tell you how, oh, and of course, let's not forget, how alluring the lead character is, loosely based on Dr Phil...ugh. I hate myself even more because I love MW so much I'm gonna watch the first ten minutes, crying at what he has done to himself. Okay, rant over...but really! *despicable - said in the voice of Daffy Duck - I may be ranting but I still have a sense of humor. :D

This review is based on the pilot of "Bull" which aired 9/21/16 Many of you may be skeptical of a series based on the life of controversial TV personality Dr. Phil. Maybe many of you weren't aware it was, and have just became skeptical. Please set aside your skepticism for the time being. The series might be "LOOSELY" based off of Dr. Phil, but it stars the very good looking Michael Weatherly (NCIS) as Dr. Bull, not Phil, and its highly ... fictionalized. I highly doubt Dr. Phil had expensive cutting edge software that learns everything it can about people to predict whether they are learning towards guilty or innocent. So, skepticism hopefully quelled, lets talk about the show. Bull is essentially a remake of the 2005 series "Lie to Me" starring Tim Roth, but instead of solving crimes brought to them by clients, they analyze jurors in order to help create a legal defense. Think of what they do as, masterminding the perfect defense strategy, based on psychology. So what it all boils down to, is a Lawyer show with a gimmick, and from the pilot, its one that works. Bull is a procedural, so I don't suspect to see many serial elements. It seems to be a case of the week type show. Bull himself is very smug, but not arrogant, and is only ever a dick to make a point that will help people. We didn't get a good sense of the supporting cast in the pilot, they were quite forgettable, and the details of the particular case in the pilot seemed very soap opera, and very farfetched for reality. There was a fairly large twist at the end, which was ok, until it led to another, unnecessary, even larger twist, which was just dumb. I imagine this show will be done by many writers, not just one, or even a few, so I can't say for sure every episode will be as good as the pilot, but if they are, its a B+/A- show, and certainly worth watching until it starts to sink and die like Lie to Me did in its latter seasons.
