A man gains the ability to use the full extent of his brain’s capabilities. A television adaptation of the 2011 film, ‘Limitless’.
I haven’t seen the movie this is a spinoff of, so the appearance of Bradley Coopers character didn’t mean more than, “Oh that’s nice it’s Bradley Cooper.” From what I’ve read he might make a few more appearances, we’ll see.
Anyway, this is the first pilot I’ve seen this season that I actually liked. I’m hoping that they do more than just make this some kind of procedural show, though they probably won’t, but I think there’s some potential.
I like the casting. I enjoyed McDorman in last season’s failed Manhattan Love Story, so it’s nice to see him getting work. He’s funny but not the point where this is a comedy, just enough to lighten it up in places. I saw the first two seasons of Dexter back in the day so I recognize Carpenter but she isn’t locked in my brain as someone who drops the f-bomb all the time. I even like Harper from his CSI New York days.
It will interesting to see what happens to this show. If it becomes just another crime solving drama or if it becomes something more.
