I just watched Limitless
It wasn't excellent, but it was good enough for me to want to see the series. Will begin watching it in the next few days.
Isn't the series just another case of "let's take a really interesting concept and shove it into a generic cop show, thus removing any and all of the concept's potential."?
Do give us your impressions on the show when you watch it.
I'm almost halfway through Limitless (TV series)
first, and only, season. I can say it is a real shame they cancelled it, I would be thrilled to see it picked up by Netflix, but as of now the creator said it won't happen.
The main character, even if a bit more goofy than I'm usually comfortable with, is quite likeable and the actor has a solid performance.
The cast is well picked and no one stands out as a bad performer, even if not all the acting is top notch.
The series is a continuation of the movie's story, it is NOT a reboot as I've seen people call it online. The movie's main character, (now) Senator Morra, is trying to pull the strings of the main guy; with the reason for it hidden from the viewer up until the point I've watched. The development of that situation is the main thread of the show.
The mostly serious tone the movie had goes out the window within the first couple of episodes, and even if you could classify the series as a procedural-dramatic-comedy, the order of importance of its elements is the other way around, or at least it feels that way: comedy 60%, drama 30%, procedural 10%.
My favorite part so far: They hilariously lampshaded all the hacking in episode 10. I sighed in relief when they did it. After so many shows have dealt horribly with IT issues, they did the right thing: "We can't show this properly, so we don't show it at all. Have a few laughs instead".
You might ask yourself, why did he watched a show that was already cancelled more than six months ago? The answer is simple: I did it for the lulz ;-)
