TV show review: Bull

I am sure I wasnt the only viewer who wondered what Michael Weatherly was going to do after he left NCIS.. I have  been watching this fine actor since he was on Dark Angel. As he aged his characters have grown too.

While from time to time I can see old Tony in the smile this new character is interesting. With the self assurance of characters past wee see a whole new side of a solid actor.

While the concept of a psychologist hired by rich people (mostly) to get them off in court cases seems like just one more advantage of privilege the show decided to handle things like a female pilot of a crashed plane and the unconscious sexual bias against women in traditionally male jobs. Well and thoughtfully handled and it showed us the flaws in thinking that we all carry.

If this show continues the way it has started I see emmy nominations for writing coming soon. The choice of how they handle what might seem like basic cases is brilliant.
