LIMITLESS Review: “Finale: Part Two!!”

5308_original
CBS, please renew this little gem of a show so that I have an hour each week that I know will just be fun. Not gritty. Not so OMG twisty that I need to take notes. Just good fun. How did Limitless end it’s good fun freshman season? With #squadgoals. What did you expect?

LIMITLESS Review: “Finale: Part One!”

The nice thing about Limitless is that the writers really do understand the tropes of TV procedurals, and they’re pretty consistently adept at subverting them. So I’m patiently waiting for the payoff to some of those tropes from last night’s “Finale: Part One!”

LIMITLESS Review: “Hi, My Name Is Rebecca Harris”

Sandwiched between two off weeks, I was prepared for a crazy amazing Rebecca-centric episode that propelled us forward. Instead, we as viewers treaded water while Rebecca’s suspicions were generally confirmed.

LIMITLESS Review: “A Dog’s Breakfast”

Oh God bless you, Limitless! You’re back! This is the show I fell for last year, with tight & smart pacing, fun & unusual cases, and an engaging season arc that didn’t feel tacked on for the dramazzz.

LIMITLESS Review: “Bezgranichnyy”

After a couple weeks of some very ADHD episodes, Limitless got itself together and focused on one story without trying to meld multiple homages together. They also brought back Georgina Haig as Piper. She’s probably the most interesting recurring character in the series.

LIMITLESS Review: “Close Encounters”

Something has happened since Limitless returned from hiatus. After a couple episodes that were fantastic, the soon-to-be-renewed freshman drama seems to have developed a late-onset case of ADHD.

LIMITLESS REVIEW: “UNDERCOVER!”

5308_original
As usual, Limitless delivers on the easy-to-enjoy procedural front, but this was an episode that could have been so much more. “Undercover!” melded a spy movie with a “here’s how it all went down” structure, and it needed to just stuck with one or the other.

LIMITLESS REVIEW: “FUNDAMENTALS OF NAKED…”

With another fun case and real progress on the season arc, Limitless has to be the best procedural on television. I’m not saying it needs to win Emmys or that it’s the best show on TV period, but name one other procedural that is as entertaining, irreverent, and self-aware.

Limitless Review: “Stop Me Before I Hug Again…”

If you’re so over gratuitously gruesome crime shows, Limitless is here for you with kittens on pedestals, cool dinosaur toys, and a whole lot of unsolved hugs and cuddles.

LIMITLESS REVIEW: “The Assassination Of Eddie Morra”

5308_original
Beneath its shiny, irreverent surface, Limitless sneaks in some pretty dark themes. In the midseason premiere, the cheekiest of CBS’s procedurals invites us to question how long our hero’s humanity can survive NZT.

Limitless Review: “Headquarters!”

My opinion has a taken a turn in a decidedly uninteresting direction. It’s exploring the annals of government agencies instead of the NZT community. The show is exploring the same themes as many other drama shows.

Limitless Review: “When Pirates Pirate Pirates”

5308_original
Brian’s NZT seemed like a tertiary aspect of the plot tonight, as it was not really used to solve any problems. This is a bad sign, as it seems the series is forgetting the unique aspect that makes the show enticing.

Limitless Review: “Brian Finch’s Black Op”

5308_original
Episode seven of the CBS series has been the slowest to date so far. Little was established, and even less was accomplished. Essentially, Brian Finch went out into the woods with CIA operatives for the entirety of the episode.

Limitless Review: “Side Effects May Include…”

Finally, we get more Bradley Cooper. What’s more, it’s a dramatic rooftop monologue wherein the millionaire politician justifies his seemingly evil measures, and essentially asks Brian Finch to ‘join the dark side’ and work for him.

Limitless Review: “Personality Crisis”

Like any television series worth its salt, CBS’ Limitless began its fifth episode of the season with a Claymation recreation of the previous episode. How exactly does this fit into a live-action television show?

Limitless Review: “Page 44” (The Cooper Man Comes Calling)

What happens when Bradley Cooper gives you an experimental intelligence-boosting drug and puts your aging father on the top of an organ donation list? Well, eventually, there’s a catch.

Limitless Review: “Things Slow Down”

Fans of the first two episodes of CBS’ Limitless might be disappointed by this third episode. The show took a step away from its interesting, original premise, moving in the direction towards typical police procedural.

Limitless Review: “Badge! Gun!”

5308_original
CBS’s Limitless gave a strong second episode to follow up its very good pilot. In a short montage, the pilot episode was condensed into about forty seconds of explanatory voice-over. So if you’re coming to late to the game, Limitless will help you get up to speed.

{TB Talks TV} Limitless Review: “Pilot”

5308_original
Limitless, the new CBS series based on the 2011 film, offers the ultimate Slacker Fantasy in the form of procedural drama following the adventures of underachiever Brian Finch, who goes from slacker to scientist after taking the dangerous smart-pill NZT-48.
