5 Reasons why I Love Limitless the TV Series

Limitless
TV Series | CBS
1 hr | 15 Episodes to date, ongoing series
Action Comedy

Based on the feature film of the same name, "Limitless" follows Brian Finch, who, possessed of extraordinary cognitive powers thanks to the mysterious drug NZT, works with the FBI to help solve complex cases. Working with him in New York City are Special Agent Rebecca Harris, an investigator with a dark past, and her confidant, Special Agent Boyle, who's a former military officer. Brian also maintains a secret relationship with Sen. Edward Mora, a fellow user of the drug who has plans of his own for his protege.






So you guys know that I'm a Netflix and (literally) Chill kind of girl. I very rarely use cable except for special occasions like The Walking Dead, Downton Abbey or on those instances where I had a tough day and I want to use some brain antacid by watching some Real Housewives. I've heard of some shows, but I don't really know what Primetime has to offer.

I was so so sooooo bored last week and started browsing On Demand. That's where I found LIMITLESS, and I'm like Hey, is this that Bradley Cooper movie?. And it was and I thought that movie was so brilliant so I decided to give it a go. Also, I'm familiar with Jake McDorman as I've seen and loved his other two series, Greek (2007) and Manhattan Love Story (2014). So go I went, got hooked, and here's five reasons why:

  1. Based on the hit movie starring Bradley Cooper, LIMITLESS TV Series continues with the NZT pill that made Eddie Mora (Bradley Cooper) a genius overnight. We've gotten close to the origins of NZT and the FBI is close in its heels. It has records of known users and tracks and studies its deadly effects. Like Eddie Mora, Brian Finch (Jake McDorman) got a vaccine from NZT's side effects and this "anomaly" had the FBI hiring him as their "consultant". And this twist is the just the beginning, but you can already see how complicated things are going to be for Brian in the long run.

  2. Bradley Cooper is an executive producer AND makes sporadic appearances too! His character is closely tied to Brian Finch and acts as both Finch's savior and nightmare. I love this twist in Mora's character, he started as a hero in the movie and it appears that being "gifted" also inflated his ego and greed for power turning him into a dangerous megalomaniac.

  3. Despite its dark and suspenseful undertones, LIMITLESS is funny and witty and full of comedic breaks and silly situations. I particularly love how Brian Finch is such a crafter! His case presentations are like art projects, it adds a layer of contradiction to his genius.

  4. The cases Brian is assigned to are interesting. I especially love his methodology in solving them. He reminds me very much of Gregory House minus the multiple hit or misses. Smart people are simply rockstars! 

  5. LIMITLESS is not only entertaining, it's smart too! I'm sure the writers exercised their creative licenses yet the science makes sense! And again, Brian's craft projects helps dumb it down for me. Ha!

I hope CBS doesn't cancel the series because it's so much fun! On that note, I also just discovered Fox's new series, Lucifer. I am loving this new show too, it only has 3 episodes so far and it's a bit formulaic as the arc has yet to gain speed. But I love the dry humor and Lucifer (Tom Ellis) is so easy on the eyes! I'll watch a few more episodes to get a good feel of the series so watch out for my feedback for that.

  5. You had me at Bradley Cooper. ;) Then I read on and realized I actually saw Limitless, the movie. But Braine, you know I don't watch tv. *whines* I'm glad you're enjoying it and I hope it doesn't get canceled. Oh, and I just had a friend recommend that I watch Lucifer. I'm very curious now...

  6. I am a TV addict. I love my cable, even though I am not pleased with the service I have, since the digital era. Not sure if they will ever get it right. That being said, YOWZA. I love Limitless too. I have been watching from the first episode. I know it's hard for people to come up with new ideas, but I think they did a good job with this one. I love that he goes from happy go lucky pothead to the smartest guy in the world. His "happy" cohort, from the Dexter series, Rebecca. I hope they keep it going too.

  11. I seldom invest in new series until I know they are going to last. I can think of countless dramas I started watching only to have them get canceled. These days, I watch so little tv that I am behind on everything.

  15. I haven't gotten into this one yet since I just didn't get through the movie. I think I was doing 5 things at once at the time so I didn't really give it a chance. I will have to really watch it and then watch the series. I also need to watch Lucifer. I did see that it is formulaic but I want to watch it for the humor.

  16. That sounds interesting how it's both dark and suspensefull and also funny. Not sure if it's a series for me as I haven't watched any series like this before. I am glad to hear you're enjoying this one so far and I hope you'll keep enjoying it.
