What I’m Watching: Limitless

Limitless: Season 1, Episode 20 “Hi, My Name is Rebecca Harris” (B+)

I think this episode was about as much as we could have hoped for in terms of gratification for Rebecca finally figuring out what was going on and her getting the chance to try NZT for the first time. I love that she decided that she was going to have the upper hand and use the pill allotted for that day for Brian to be able to really read him and figure out whether he was telling the truth. To his credit, he was completely honest, and even though Rebecca was reading him thanks to her NZT abilities, he didn’t try to hold things back or deceive her. As if they didn’t make a good enough team already, Brian and Rebecca together on NZT are definitely formidable, and I’d hope that this is just the start of them working together in secret and accomplishing a lot. Entrapping Sands by making him think that they were going to try to grab his son was especially smart and impressive, and certainly worthy of a high-five. Unfortunately, as this duo did great, Boyle and Naz both took notice, and now they’re going to be gunning for Rebecca the same way Boyle has had it out for Brian, but with good cause and reasonable suspicions. It makes sense that all that remains in this season is a two-part season finale, split over two weeks, and then hopefully the season two renewal that for some reason CBS has been reticent to give thus far. I like this show a lot, and would really like to see more of it.
