This weeks posting will be about my opinion on the show called Limitless. Just to be clear i have not seen the whole season that is on netflix, I am on Season 1 Episode 7 so far but Im sure after I am done doing my homework that'll change. My first thought of the show was that it was cool that they had Bradley Cooper in the show. I say this because i feel like he is above showing up on a show rather than another movie, but hey i appreciate how humble he is.

Warning: Spoiler! [ Click to expand ]
The Main character is Brian Finch, a 29 year old musician who self proclaims that he is apart of a "Musical Group" but we all know what that means. We see that he takes jobs as a temp for offices and while working at one office he runs into his friend and former Band member named Eli. Thats how he gets his first NZT pill. This pill can have you use i think about 90% of your brain rather than only 10%. This drug is illegal and has horrible side affects. Brain taking the pill he used it to find out what his dad was sick with while on NZT. Right of the bat we see that Brain will choose to do good with his abilities while on NZT.

This is more of a review of the first episode rather than my opinion on the whole show. I think that the show has a good grip on where its going with things but i feel as if there should be more action in it. Brain can learn anything in about 100x faster than anyone else can. Why not have him learn about ever fighting style there is. He is also technically another sherlock holmes, a detective that has perfect recall and is super smart. Well thats my 2 cents about the show so far.

Hey! So I just started watching this show about a week and a half ago as well, I'm on season 1 episode 15 and I have to say I really like it! Its very interesting how the NZT works to unlock so many different parts of Brian's brain and as the season progresses how many people become aware of its power and want in on it as well. I find myself at the edge of my seat constantly trying to see what will happen next between the Senator and Naz and Rebecca finding out and his dad! I hope no one gets hurt in the process and in my humble and honest opinion I would really like to see Brian and Rebecca get together at some point, I feel like they would make a really cute couple.
