Premature Infatuation: CBS’ Limitless 

Warning: Spoilers Ahead

Open your mind.

I haven’t seen the movie, but I think I might have to before I watch this show. After watching the trailer, I want to know more about Jake McDorman‘s Brian Finch and this story. Can you imagine what a pill like this could do? The possibilities are — wait for it — limitless.

Series synopsis, from CBS:

Based on the feature film, Limitless is a fast-paced drama about Brian Finch (Jake McDorman), who discovers the brain-boosting power of the mysterious drug NZT and is coerced by the FBI into using his extraordinary cognitive abilities to solve complex cases for them. Working closely with Brian in the major case squad in New York City is Special Agent Rebecca Harris (Jennifer Carpenter), a formidable investigator with a dark past, and Special Agent Boyle (Hill Harper), a former military officer and Rebecca’s confidante. They report to Special Agent in Charge Nasreen “Naz” Pouran (Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio), a canny manipulator of the reins of power. Unbeknownst to the FBI, Brian also has a clandestine relationship with Senator Edward Mora (Bradley Cooper, recurring), a presidential hopeful and regular user of NZT who has plans of his own for his new protégé. Fueled now with a steady supply of NZT that enables him to use 100% of his brain capacity, Brian is more effective than all of the FBI agents combined, making him a criminal’s worst nightmare and the greatest asset the Bureau has ever possessed.

I love a good thriller and I’m very excited about the ensemble cast. We’ve got Jennifer Carpenter, most recently of Dexter. I’ve always been a fan of Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio, who I’ve really enjoyed on Grimm. But I’m excited we’ll be seeing more of her in this show. And, finally, we’ve got Hill Harper, from Covert Affairs and CSI: NY. Shallow TV Alert: I’m a fan.

Limitless premieres this fall on CBS.
