Here we have yet another version of "the crime solver that is smarter than the cops" (think Sherlock Holmes, Psych, Numbers. ad infinitum). What saves the creaky premise is a) some sharp writing, b) a charming (no other word fits) performance by Jake McDorman as Brian Finch, the smart guy and c) the writers and performers have a sense of humor about the whole thing and don't take it too seriously. The result is often really fun. Basically the Finch character is a twenty something slacker living off his parents when he comes into a stash of a drug called NTZ. Drop one pill and for about 12 hours he is the smartest guy in the world. The rest of the time he is his old wise ass, slacker self. Through unlikely circumstances he ends up working for the FBI, solving crimes and getting into mischief. Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio does a nice job, as expected, as Finch's FBI boss. On the minus side there is some dull stuff about Finch's father who somehow feels deeply betrayed...
Oh my word. Such a fab, fab show. So disappointed CBS decided to cancel. So hoping Amazon picks it up. It is the BOMB! Super cast, excellent writing and fun and engaging plot lines. Brian's character is flawed.. like all of us but filled with such hear and moral fiber you just can't help but love him.
Also loved the references to Ferris Bueller, James Bond, Office Space and more. Excellent show.
Limitless is a great TV show, and although the idea of a 'problem solving genius' has been tremendously overused, Limitless gives us some fresh air with its unique, witty, fun sense embedded in the heart of the show. The actors do great in this TV show, and I am sure there will be a second season due to the success of the first.
- Unique take on overused idea - Relatable to average human life - Actors help make the show 'pop out' - Show has a great and witty sense of humor with a blend of genius crime solving that's sure to keep you entertained
Cons - Does not strike as good in terms of entertainment as original movie, 'Limitless' - Characters are well-made, but stories can be a cliche as they all have some sort of dramatic side to their stories - There's really no more cons I can think of!
