Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Limitless is set several years after the events of the feature film that inspired it and centers on a mysterious, mind-enhancing drug with addicting powers. (The main character is technically a drug user but uses his abilities to help others, making ethical compromises in pursuit of the greater good.) You'll see some intense moments of violence, including shootings with some blood, as well as light sexual tension between characters. You'll also hear words such as "damn" and "ass."

Sexual Content

Social Behavior

The series highlights the power of knowledge, critical thinking, and logic and subtly promotes the concept that it's cool to be smart. But it also sends complicated messages about drug use, addiction, and ethics.
