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?

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!”

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
