Limitless: Pilot

Limitlesss01e010376

Some of the credits, because I’m realll angry and have a point to make:

Limitlesss01e010036

Limitlesss01e010037

Limitlesss01e010038

Limitlesss01e010039

Limitlesss01e010379

Five screens with credits. Four of them have Craig Sweeny on them!

Do you know how many screens mention the source material — The Dark Fields by Alan Glynn?

ZERO.

What the hell is up with that?

If writer Alan Glynn chose not to have his name associated with it, I’d understand.

But if they deliberately didn’t give him a credit, they should all burn.

As for this episode, it wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be.

Before …

Limitlesss01e010064

… and after NZT-48 kicks in:

Limitlesss01e010065

And we get the typical special effects:

Limitlesss01e010107

Limitlesss01e010149

Bradley Cooper guest stars as the pill-pusher:

Whose ambitions have expanded since the movie:

Limitlesss01e010001

And — sahprise! — the FBI pushes the pill too:

Limitlesss01e010373

How all of this is made even remotely plausible is a dense mass of knots that all get untangled in the end.

But did I care?

No.

There was no depth to anything.

I doubt there will be any depth in the series.

And I’d be surprised if it lasted an entire season.

I’ll look at the next episode, just to see what they try to do with the premise of someone so damned smart wasting his life helping The Man.

  1. Is this a series of the movie or a series that is a sequel to the movie? Or what?
