Funny in a serious way
5 November 2015 | by Miles-10See all my reviews

"Brian Finch's Black Op" (rhymes with "Ferris Buehler's Day Off"-well, sorta) is the reason I am glad that I didn't stop watching this show. While other new covert TV series this year take themselves too seriously, "Limitless" has not. This was particularly funny, as anyone who has seen the Matthew Broderick classic will attest.

On the other hand, the story does deal with serious business (I almost said, serious COMPANY business). There are echoes of other movies such as "The Treasure of Sierra Madre." The last exchange between Brian and Rebecca underscores how deadly serious the story is. This is not just about coming of age but loss of innocence.
