The whole time I was watching this show, I felt like I needed to watch the movie it is based on. The show is about a guy, Brian Finch, who is given a drug, NZT, that enhances his brain functions. Somehow, he is mistaken as the murderer of his friend and decides that he needs to clear his name. But in order to do so, he needs to find more NZT. This is where Bradley Cooper’s character comes into play. If you remember, Bradley Cooper was the star of the movie. Finch encounters Cooper’s character and he gives Finch the opportunity to have a lifetime supply of NZT as long as he tries to convince the FBI to use him as an informant/consultant.
I am not going to continue watching the show because one, I didn’t see the movie and two, I was confused the whole time I was watching because I hadn’t seen the movie.
If you end up watching the show, let me know what you think in the comments below.
