    Designed mostly as a showcase for Weatherly and generator of one-off episodes that go down easy after NCIS, Bull is still working to meet even that low bar, though I guess minor revisions to the original pilot helped.

    There’s hardly a moment that’s believable, or an actor who isn’t wasted.

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

    Weatherly, who spent 13 seasons with “NCIS,” is an able charismatic lead--snarky and smart-alecky in a way that suggests both unnecessary toughness and vulnerability underneath it. ... But the show itself is totally ridiculous, in concept and execution.

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

    No one in Bull’s crew stands out after the first episode; it’s a generic batch of hard-charging employees. Mr. Weatherly fares better, retaining some of the impishness of his “N.C.I.S.” character, Anthony DiNozzo, while growing up a bit.

  • Diane Werts

    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.

    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.

    As interesting as Bull‘s juror-research aspects are, the actual courtroom scenes are over-the-top, with witnesses arguing with lawyers (and, in one case, assaulting them) from the stand.

  • Matthew Gilbert

    The procedural, case-a-week format is filled with legal cliches, and Weatherly’s know-it-all character, aptly named Jason Bull, is tiring.

  • David Wiegand

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