Hey, CBS! I’ve fixed the credits for you!

Molly has a different take on this series than me:

I think she’s enjoying all the Digital Generation stuff …

Limitlesss01e080004

Limitlesss01e080010

Limitlesss01e080011

… and the cusp of the Digital Age stuff …

Limitlesss01e080325

… and especially when they intersect:

Limitlesss01e080385

My angle is that I read the Alan Glynn novel well before it was ever optioned as a movie. Then I saw the movie. Then I saw … this.

This, which does not credit Alan Glynn at all.

So, I can’t be all LOL over it like Molly can. The well has been poisoned by a fellow writer once again getting screwed by the rich and powerful.

That said, this episode sucked less than the last one, but I realllllly should have seen this shit coming:

Limitlesss01e080253

Limitlesss01e080254

But once that happened, well, this was inevitable:

Limitlesss01e080307

Limitlesss01e080308

Limitlesss01e080309

Limitlesss01e080311

Limitlesss01e080312

While the earlier episodes had some bits of unpredictability in them, everything is beginning to fall into the TV Formula Rut over there.

I’m no fan of using lines from movies (thank you, Phil Ford, for ruining that forever), but this …

… was the perfect use of the Liam Neeson Taken line. Well done, Kari (or the guy who is using a woman’s name as his pen name; harumph).

How long is it going to take the fuckers behind this series to credit and pay Alan Glynn?

I will watch the next episode.
