'Bull' Season 4 Episode 17: Bacteria-themed episode gets slammed for its timing, fans call it 'poor choice'
Spoilers for 'Bull' Season 4 Episode 17 'The Invisible Woman'
The episode may have had an advisory to it before airing an episode on citywide bacteria, but that didn't help the case as fans slammed the timing of the episode. 'The Invisible Woman' sees an anthrax expert accused of orchestrating a series of anthrax attacks that terrorized New York City.
"In view of the coronavirus scaring the heck out of everyone maybe you could have saved this anthrax episode for another time. Poor choice!" tweeted a fan. The episode also garnered some reviews for the storyline with one fan saying, "This episode is sad but it's a good episode."
The advisory clip saw Micheal Weatherly say: "Tonight's episode deals with a citywide panic, not unlike the fears and concerns people are experiencing all over the world at this moment," Weatherly said, referring to the coronavirus outbreak. "Before we start, we wanted to remind you this is a work of fiction. It was written and filmed months ago. And its only purpose is to entertain you."
A fan was personally relieved by the end of the episode. "Okay my heart just skipped a beat with everything we are living through right now, but now I'm ok. It's two different animals," he said. "Even with the disclaimer at the start, it seems that delaying this episode might have been a good idea," said another fan. "Jeez, truth is stranger than fiction??! Y'all must have wondered whether or not to air this episode!" said another.
Meanwhile, baby Astrid continued to win hearts. "And Bull is crazy about little Astrid! What a happy, proud Daddy," tweeted a fan.
One fan though, thought the episode was fun. "Hilarious! I'm watching!" she said. In another hawk-eye observation, a fan saw that the old classic intro was used and he seemed mighty pleased. "Im so glad you went back to the original intro music. (sic)" he said. Irrespective of all the outbreak concerns, one fan just saw this as a rather well thought out episode. "Seriously this is deep," she tweeted.
