Limitless: Season 1 (2015 - 2016)


Season 1
Limitless

Critics Consensus

Even with a likable hero, Limitless cannot overcome its credulity-straining premise and shaky, hole-riddled narrative.

Critic Reviews for Limitless Season 1

All Critics (47) | Top Critics (21)

Limitless deserves a sampling and then a second look. It could be either a temporary high or truly addictive.

Aug 26, 2015 | Full Review…
Top Critic

But for one episode anyway, Limitless's potential seems ... well, hardly limitless, but perhaps promising.

Sep 22, 2015 | Full Review…
Top Critic

With this new series, CBS seems to have squandered the potential of a weird, compelling premise by cramming it into an average procedural crime-show mold.

Sep 21, 2015 | Full Review…

The producers here may have finally cracked the McDorman code.

Sep 21, 2015 | Full Review…
Top Critic

McDorman, a great screen presence who may have finally found the right vehicle, sells the effects of the drugs. I'm ready to take a few more pills to see where things go.

Sep 21, 2015 | Rating: B | Full Review…

The first episode is a cut or two better than so-so, with Cooper's brief but pivotal appearance something that many opening night viewers might be willing to wait on.

Sep 22, 2015 | Rating: C+ | Full Review…
Top Critic

Strong continuation of the feature film about a man who gets his mind expanded.

Sep 21, 2015 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

The fact that Bradley is excited about what's going on -- that he doesn't get all angst-y -- is something Limitless has going in its favor.

Sep 22, 2015 | Full Review…

Limitless may give you an immediate high, but side effects may include listlessness, dangerous plot holes and a sinking feeling you've wasted an hour of your life.

Sep 22, 2015 | Rating: C+ | Full Review…

The superhero aspects can be fun to watch, but they don't make a lot of sense.

Sep 22, 2015 | Full Review…

Turns out there are limits when it comes to adapting movies into TV-and the feeble sequel to 2011's Limitless is especially off-putting...

Sep 22, 2015 | Full Review…

The series begins with a familiar mix of FBI procedural and cheeky class clown comedy but the series gets more clever with the humor in later episodes, goofing on Brian's narration and playing games with shifting perspectives...

Audience Reviews for Limitless: Season 1

    I loved this show. The combination of humor and intrigue made it delightful. So disappointed that there was only one season. It's not to late to reboot.

    I love this show - such a shame it got cancelled. It was a different play on the typical 'murder mystery' show. Fairly good acting & developing characters. A real shame in my opinion
  • Oct 20, 2019
    It's hard to find a show where the main character is a genuinely good person PLUS an interesting storyline. Hands down favorite show. I want a second season so much!
  • Oct 19, 2019
    A great tv show that continues the unique idea that made the movie a large hit.
  • Oct 18, 2019
    The optimistic funny chatty guy become out of the trend. If they make him darker and split charactor between taking pill and the regular should be more interrsting. Still watch it for fun but it's not unputdowntable thing to watch.
  • May 11, 2019
    It's a fun television show that puts crime shows in an interesting and new perspective. It's easy to see that they had to pick up the pace of it since they got cancelled but I thought they wrapped up the show really well and even gave nods to the earlier episodes.
  • Apr 14, 2019
    Esta genial la serie, en lo personal me entretuvo mucho, quisiera una segunda temporada de limitless
  • Mar 13, 2019
    One of the best shows Iâ??Â?ve seen in years. Excellent story telling, great comedy and action. It actually makes you care about the characters. Once again I have no idea what the professional critics are thinking by giving it such a low rating. They are so out of touch with what people actually like.
  • Feb 25, 2019
    I thought this was a great show.
  • Dec 23, 2018
    I loved this tv series. I am crushed there isnt a season 2. I started a Instagram page for people who feel the same way, if we get enough of us maybe we can get it back in air!
