Review of Bull

Mondays, 10:00 PM ET on CBS

60 minutes

A drama inspired by the early career of Dr. Phil McGraw as the founder of one of the most prolific trial consulting firms of all time. Brilliant, brash and charming, Dr. Bull (Michael Weatherly) 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.

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
