Limitless (Just Started to Watch)

Alright! I will be hectic from tomorrow so I cannot binge-watch like I normally do. So this is quite a bad time to watch a pilot of any drama because it is painful to find a drama that I might like and at the same time have to wait till I have enough time to binge-watch it … but I couldn’t help it. I watched it. It is “Limitless” on Netflix. And …. I liked it.

This is a story about the guy who took a kind of drug that enhances his brain. Every cell of his brain has awakened, which makes him a super-human being. There are side effects and all that stuff but for detail, please watch for yourself. In a way, this is a story you find anywhere so whether it will be a good drama or not totally depends on how they tell it.

It is too early to make a call. I just watched the first episode just now. Well, it is so well done that it was over before I knew it. I don’t want to spoil any fun but it teamed with elements that compose a good drama. A right amount of mystery, a series of events happening one after another (o, I should write about a series of unfortunate events!) and I liked the ending of the pilot. And as I mentioned time and time again, I love stories about NYC and the setting of Limitless is in NYC, too. Actually the protagonist and FBI agents who chased him ran through the park near Union Square I went through a couple times when I walked to Strand (a book store, just in case) and back to the 26th avenue to my school. (I love Central park but I also love small parks like Madison Square Park. I liked to pick up some foods at Whole Food near it and at them in the park)

Anyway, I will watch whenever I have time and when I am fortunate enough to have a big chunk of time, I am sure to binge-watch it and then write a full review of it.

Now I got to get back to work! How I wish I could be the perfect version of myself!! 🙂

About dw64 (or Masa(aki) or Mark)

I am 52-year-old Japanese male. Ever since I watched Sesame Street when I was VERY young (5 years old?). I fell in love with American English and culture. I learned English hard and now I am teaching it. Then when I was 18, I had an opportunity to stay with an American family in Shell Knob, Missouri and I asked them to educate me as an American kid. So they taught me the American way and even my taste for food has changed completely so I call this rebirth! Then when I was 30 (I visited the U.S. several times but they were short stays), I joined the MA course in teaching English of graduate school in Vermont. I stayed about 10 months there (it was an intensive course). I stayed in a dorm and learned a lot inside and outside of classrooms. I got all the credits but I failed because of the difference in the context between the U.S. and JAPAN cuz it is so hard to teach English in The way I learned in the course because in Japan, teaching is about understanding grammar and structure in Japanese. But my journey does not end here. Last year I was admitted the CELTA course in NYC where I worked hard and got this certificate that certifies that I had finished the course and qualified to teach English to people who want learn English as a second language by Cambridge University standard. So if you are one of those people, send me a message and I can help you learn American English (I got this at Cambridge but basically they teach different English depending on location). Why did I pick NYC? Well, I am a huge fan of American everything! I live the country even when that demagogue guy is the President so I am an authentic fan of it. I mean, I love the U.S. more than anything in this world. There was a guy who loved Japan so much so after he retired he came to Japan and became a citizen. I want to do the same, actually. So now I am so into it, I listen to NYC CBS radio 880 all the time except when I watch dramas on Netflix, HBO or HULLU or read paperbacks on Kindle (read 70 books in the last two years). And then I am writing in English. I hope to be able to write something publishable in the future but I have to learn some more. As for my learning, I have almost done usual stuff so now I decide to do things that native speakers who wish to be writers will do. At least I learned 8000 words and phrases in the last couple years and I confirmed that I know more than 22000 words, which is tantamount to the number of words American graduate school students have. Well I might talk about these things, too, but I will talk about my favorite things in this blog. I love American dramas. I love the ones with some sci-fi portion in it. Like, from HULU, Gotham, Lucifer, Fringe, etc. I love good comedies so I love Seinfeld, SNL and night shows. Netflix? Luke Cage, Daredevil, and other defenders. I love legends of tomorrow, too. HBO, Game of Thrones!! And I also loved Night of and West World. I also might talk about cycling (road biking) and all other stuff! Please feel free to comment!
