Storyline

Bull is an American drama series created by Michael S. Chernuchin. It was TNT's first original series, and was cancelled in the middle of Season 1. The show's name is in reference to the bull market, but the airing of the series coincided with the dot-com bubble crash that turned what had until then been a bull economy in the United States into a bear market. Bull is about a group of Wall Street investment bankers that risk everything to break away from an established firm and start their own company. Leading the way is Robert "Ditto" Roberts III, the brilliant grandson of the founder of their former company who must betray his family heritage in order to stake a claim to his own life. His partners - Corey Granville, Marty Decker, Carson Boyd, Alison Jeffers and Marissa Rufo - each with a separate agenda, risk losing everything to join him in the new rival start-up firm that will answer the call of the new economy. With no financing, no clients and the rivalry of every player in town,...

Or, to be less polite, missing four letters at the end. This tv series, whose premise has tremendous potential, is nothing more than a cheap soap opera poorly disguised as informative entertainment. While the last bull market of the 1980s resulted in an interesting box office hit, the most recent one only has this paltry concept to show for. The main fault of the program is that its production/direction staff was taken from Law and Order, an annoying bureaucracy drama, rather than a tv series dealing with a related topic. Although I find Bull to be completely unenlightening about the financial world (the writers dont even seem to know the difference between investment banking and commodities trading) there are several aspects of the show that kept me flipping back to it every few minutes. Stanley Tucci is very capable, and appears to be the only thing holding the feature together. Elisabeth Rohm isnt bad either, and certainly better than she was in Angel, a silly little stint. The rest of the cast ranges from poor to mediocre, however, and I dont understand why at least 10 minutes of every episode is devoted to Marissa's struggling lower middle class parents. Still, its not too late for this series to sharpen up, perhaps with some storywriters who have experience in the business (Michael Lewis for instance). Until then, I'll stick with CNBC.
