This show basically only takes the base concept from the movie (drug makes you smart). All the themes from the movie (dangers of addiction, intelligence vs knowing things, ect) are basically gone to make way for what the show is. This show is "What if J.D. from Scrubs was in a police procedural and was also The Mentalist half the time". Any worries about getting more of the drug is gone, they never really show the withdrawal he must go through each day, there are no long term damages from taking the drug. The show is really just another goofy genius fights crime show. Which is fine? It is still pretty good. Not the movie, still fun-ish.


Horrible show. I've watched 6 episodes and I found the show to be very shallow. It's just Brian under NZT solving cases and people being amazed because he can do everything.


The movie was great, definitely gonna try the show out. I'm curious!


Really disappointed that this show didn't get picked up for a second season


Why do the good ones always get cancelled?


This show is the perfect example - together with The 100 - of how a show can come from mediocre to really good just taking risks and experimenting. From Ep 1-8 more or less, the show is pretty flat and horrible, it is a generic cop drama with a little twist, it is the same as Blindspot, Lucifer (and don't get me wrong, I still like it) and any other crime-solving show with a hint of conspiracy in the main plot. From Ep 9 and so on, they start slowly changing their tactics and experimenting with the show, they purposely twist cliches to try surprising the viewer. While the show in its end is still far from a masterpiece or any real great tv series, it is still a way better series than when it started.


I've loved the movie , can the show be as good ? On the CBS network it should have very good audiences if the show want to stay alive.


A nearly perfect series let down by its final episode. It should have been renewed. They tried to wrap things up nicely for the audience.


Crap shows are live while this amazing show is not, I hope it will be live soon


The movie was totally awesome, definitely I will give this serie a shot
