Well, Dr. Jason Bull has done it again. He’s managed to snag a high-dollar client without trying, solve a mystery mid-trial, maneuver the person on trial into pleading the Fifth Amendment, and have a romantic rendezvous with his married ex-wife, all within a single episode. This guy needs a nap. This week’s episode, “Prior Bad Acts,” has a few sub-plots, which makes it kind of fun to watch, but harder to critique. For those who…
Ever had a stubborn client who refused to consider any plausible explanations for the conduct at issue besides his own? We’ve all been there, and this week, Bull joins the ranks. In this week’s episode of “Bull” (Season 3, Episode 12), we meet New York City’s chief medical examiner, Dr. Julia Martin, who is arrested and charged with evidence tampering on a case she closed (and law enforcement subsequently solved) six years prior.

The first surrounds a millennial couple who recently eloped in Thailand. On their flight home,…

If you don’t immediately know what I’m talking about, hop on YouTube right now and take a quick peek. I’ll wait.

This week’s episode of “Bull” – “A Higher Law” – featured an unusual suspect: A Catholic priest. He’s pulled over driving behind the wheel of a dinged-up, bloodied vehicle, with alcohol on his breath. He’s subsequently arrested for a fatal hit-and-run of a young female jogger. Facing up to 20 years in prison, most folks would be more than happy to out the actual killer, but not Father Andy. The person who actually caused the…

Hollywood hijacked reality in this week’s episode of “Bull.” Let’s shake things up this week and play a game of “Truth or Bull.” But first, a quick synopsis. If you watch the show, you may want to skip this column as the entire piece will be a ginormous spoiler. This week’s episode, “Separation,” had two distinct story lines.

Does art imitate life, or does life imitate art? Life is messy. And this week’s episode of “Bull” captured the essence of not only a messy life, but the angst that defendants experience when feeling wrongly accused. Dr. Jason Bull, the charming yet slightly narcissistic psychologist who runs a state-of-the-art trial sciences firm, has once again found a criminal defendant who desperately needs his expertise. In fact, Dr. Bull must be feeling the holiday spirit because this time,…
  It’s not every day that I’m asked to review a television show co-created, produced and written by my former boss, Dr. Phil McGraw. Bull, the not-so-new CBS drama features Dr. Jason Bull, a trial scientist and jury consultant who has all sorts of tricks up his sleeve. He dances around the rules of procedure and doesn’t seem to care about ethical guidelines. But hey, the show would be ridiculously dull if it weren’t a…
