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.
ABC Entertainment Group President Paul Lee is stepping down and ABC’s head of drama Channing Dungey will take over, suggesting ABC’s drama slate is on solid ground but potentially marking a shift in its comedy focus.

We were wrong. Everyone was wrong. Deadpool was obviously going to be #1 by a mile, but it turns out that mile was actually more like five miles. And then some. At $152 million for the four-day holiday, the “Merc with a Mouth” left barely a record standing.

Hailed as a breath of fresh air, David Arnold’s debut novel Mosquitoland captured readers last year. Now, Broad Green Pictures has picked up the popular young adult road trip novel for a feature adaptation.
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.
