Bull: Season 1 (2016 - 2017)


Season 1

Critics Consensus

Michael Weatherly's performance is top-notch, but not enough to save a show that relies too heavily on a well-worn series of legal show tropes and an off-putting premise.

Critic Reviews for Bull Season 1

All Critics (27) | Top Critics (15)

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.

Top Critic

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.

Top Critic

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.

Sep 20, 2016 | Full Review…

Even Weatherly's most devoted fans may find this one a load of bull.

Sep 20, 2016 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

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.

Top Critic

If Bull had been watching me watch, he'd have known I was inclined to vote the show guilty - of being thoroughly missable.

Sep 19, 2016 | Full Review…

Bull is not a great show - the pilot uses too many legal show tropes - but it's not a bad CBS procedural.

Sep 12, 2016 | Full Review…

While the series tries to dazzle you with high-tech sophistication, it fumbles around when it comes to the human factors.

Jan 25, 2019 | Full Review…

Bull might offer a cool new tweak to the TV legal drama... but it leaves the tried-and-true CBS blueprint untouched.

Jan 25, 2019 | Rating: C+ | Full Review…

While there are definitely moments that allow the show to redeem itself, the overall try-hard feeling results in a lukewarm product that isn't worth spending your time on when there's so much other quality television out there.

Dec 20, 2017 | Full Review…

There's something about Michael Weatherly that's very watchable... both his acting and the larger show succeed.

Sep 16, 2016 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

Whatever its roots, Bull is a repellent mix of behaviorist fascism and pseudo-intellectual arrogance.
