CBS' new fall drama Limitless, a continuation of the 2011 movie starring Bradley Cooper, poses the question: What would you do if you discovered a drug that allowed you to use your brain's full capacity? The answer, in short, is to be careful what you wish for.

That's exactly the dilemma faced by Brian Finch (Jake McDorman) - who, after a friend introduces him to NZT, becomes entangled in a murder investigation and eventually gets recruited to be a consultant for the FBI, thanks to an empathetic agent (Jennifer Carpenter).
