I’m a big NCIS fan, and next to Leroy Jethro Gibbs (Mark Harmon), Anthony DiNozzo (Michael Weatherly) was my favorite.
So I was a bit out of sorts when DiNozzo left that show after 13 seasons. NCIS is now woking on 18.
I knew where Michael was going — he was to play Dr. Jason Bull on Bull, a jury consulting firm headed by Jason, who is a psychologist and trial-science expert. Bull uses his skills and those of his team not only to select the right jurors for his clients, but also to help his clients' lawyers decide which type of argument will win over jurors best. Bull is inspired by the early career of Dr. Phil McGraw, who also serves as an executive producer.
I was, at first, not going to watch Bull because I’ve never been a Dr. Phil fan (sorry).
It took awhile for me to climb on board, but by the third and now fourth season I became a fan, not just of Bull (Weatherly) but also of Benjamin “Benny” Colón (Freddy Rodriguez) former brother-in-law, and a former NYC prosecutor.
By season four, that partnership is strained after Benny learns Bull had a romantic encounter with his sister Isabella "Izzy" Colón during a funeral service. Benny leaves in a rage. Bull pleads with Benny to come back, but to no avail.
The suspense continues in and out of court.
In May 2020, the series was renewed for a fifth season.
