Bull cast

"Bull" review by Eva Diaz  9/21/16
Airs Tuesdays 9/8c on CBS

I was interested in watching this show because I have always wanted to know what a jury consultant does, and in this show you do find out about the job (or at least, the TV version). According to the show, a jury consultant's job is to analyze the members of a jury using a mock jury and computer data to simulate the jury verdict, until you find the one jury member who will persude the others to give you the verdict you want to get, be it guilty or not guilty. It's very loosely-based on the early career of Dr. Phil McGraw.

Michael Weatherly ("NCIS") stars as Dr. Jason Bull; He's great in the role, but I found the pilot episode to be too slow-paced. Maybe it was because they had to explain the premise of the show and introduce all of the characters. I hope it will pick up the pace in future episodes... I truly hope so because it got a little boring even for a fan of lawyer shows like me! I did find it interesting that it didn't concentrate so much on who committed the crime but focused on getting the innocent person to go free. I don't know if in the fiture the show will have Bull get somebody off who actually committed the crime, but I think that would make the show more interesting.

I give this show 3 out of 5 stars... it needs a lot of work. I hope future episodes are better then the first episode. The show has a strong lead-in from NCIS, so it might last long enough to gain fans and find an audience.

stars Michael Weatherly as Dr. Jason Bull in a drama inspired by the early career of Dr. Phil McGraw, the founder of one of the most prolific trial consulting firms of all time. Brilliant, brash and charming, Dr. Bull is the ultimate puppet master as he combines psychology, human intuition and high tech data to learn what makes jurors, attorneys, witnesses and the accused tick. Bull employs an enviable team of experts at Trial Analysis Corporation to shape successful narratives down to the very last detail. They include his quick-witted former brother-in-law, Benny Colón, a lawyer who acts as defense attorney in the company’s mock trials; Marissa Morgan, a cutting-edge neurolinguistics expert from the Department of Homeland Security; former NYPD detective Danny James, the firm’s tough but relatable investigator; haughty millennial hacker Cable McCrory, who is responsible for gathering cyber intelligence; and Chunk Palmer, a fashion-conscious stylist and former All-American lineman who fine tunes clients’ appearances for trial. In high-stakes trials, Bull’s combination of remarkable insight into human nature, three Ph.D.’s and a top-notch staff creates winning strategies that tip the scales of justice in his clients’ favor.
