Review of Limitless

60 minutes

LIMITLESS, based on the feature film, is a fast-paced drama about Brian Finch (Jake McDorman), who discovers the brain-boosting power of the mysterious drug NZT and is coerced by the FBI into using his extraordinary cognitive abilities to solve complex cases for them. Working closely with Brian in the major case squad in New York City is Special Agent Rebecca Harris (Jennifer Carpenter), a formidable investigator with a dark past, and Special Agent Boyle (Hill Harper), a former military officer and Rebecca’s confidante. They report to Special Agent in Charge Nasreen “Naz” Pouran (Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio), a canny manipulator of the reins of power.

What's wrong with this review?

Let us know why you think this review is inappropriate.

I LOVED the movie, so I really wanted this show to do well. The writing is good, the actors did a good job (not great) in the pilot. But... I think the casting department just tried to find someone who looked like Bradley Cooper, found the lead and said "This will work." I think their lead is the weakest link. there's no need to have him look like the star of the movie if the star of the movie is going to have an occasional cameo. I'll give it three episodes and hope my mind is changed.
