Bull ~ 11/19/20

I’m back on the sauce which is code for watching TV. I truly thought the Rona was going to ruin my entertainment but Hollywood found a way. Not without casualties of course but that’s okay.

I haven’t done a review in a while so here’s my two cents. Bull is a show about the psychology of jury selection. Dr. Jason Bull and his crackpot team always select the perfect jury and win. Everything always wraps up in a nice neat package.

Tuesday night’s season premiere was unusual. Taking a page from current times, Bull had Covid, hallucinating a majority of the episode. One of those where he broke out into song in a TV/musical mash up. When his fever broke, we were back to reality. The new reality of today where we’re in the middle of a pandemic.

Theses actors are in a bubble, getting tested for COVID-19. Being “safe”. Another way they’re adapting is use of CGI. Bull’s daughter for example was a CGI baby. While tech has improved, Astrid was creepy. Semi-realistic but not quite right. Coupled with the random misplaced song, this was not an episode I’d watch again. Though I usually like singing, any time any place. Think Zoeys Extraordinary Playlist. But that show won’t be back until March 2021.

Overall at least they’re trying to bring entertainment during the end of days. That’s what matters. And me? I’ll keep watching. I mean what else have I got to do?

As always more to come.
