LIMITLESS: New action-drama premieres on RTL CBS Entertainment HD

LIMITLESS, the highly-anticipated TV series in the US this fall, premieres on RTL CBS Entertainment HD on September 23, Wednesday at 9 PM within 12 hours of its US broadcast.
Based on the feature film with the same title, LIMITLESS is an action-drama about Brian Finch who discovers the brain-boosting power of the mysterious drug NZT.
The series stars Jake McDorman (“American Sniper” and “Greek”), Jennifer Carpenter (“Dexter”), Hill Harper (“CSI:NY” and “Covet Affairs”), and Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio (“Scarface” and “The Colour of Money”).
Academy Award® nominee, Bradley Cooper is executive producing the series and will guest star in the pilot reprising his role as Senator Edward Mora, the character he played in the movie.


“We’re committed to bringing very strong programming to audiences in the region and are delighted to air LIMITLESS day and date of its U.S. broadcast,” said Jonas Engwall, CEO, RTL CBS Asia Entertainment Network. “This highly-anticipated show will complement the outstanding line-up of programs on our channel.”

LIMITLESS is a fast-paced drama that will explore what happens when there are no limits to man’s potential as Finch is coerced by the FBI to use his newfound extraordinary cognitive abilities to solve complex cases for them.
Working closely with Finch in the major case squad in New York City is Special Agent Rebecca Harris (Jennifer Carpenter), a formidable investigator with a dark past and Special Agent Boyle (Hill Harper), a former military officer and Rebecca’s confidant.

Unbeknownst to the FBI, Finch also has a clandestine relationship with Senator Edward Mora (Bradley Cooper), a presidential hopeful and regular user of NZT, who has plans of his own for his new protégé.
Fueled now with a steady supply of NZT that enables him to use 100% of his brain capacity, Finch is now more effective than all of the FBI agents combined, making him a criminal’s worst nightmare and the greatest asset the Bureau has ever possessed.

LIMITLESS is executive produced by Craig Sweeny, Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci, Heather Kadin, Marc Webb, Bradley Cooper, Todd Phillips, Ryan Kavanaugh, Tucker Tooley and Tom Forman. Produced by CBS Television Studios in association with K/O Paper Products and Relativity Television, the series is internationally distributed by CBS Studios International.

The golden hour

It’s 1:26 AM. All the boys are asleep and I’m the only one awake.
I have a hospital table/tray next to my bed which has my computer. I got my headphones on. This is me time. This is when nobody bugs me and I can watch my TV shows—Catfish, I Am Cait, Awkward, and Kalyeserye—yes I love mindless junk, while playing Candy Crush.
Maybe I’ll watch an old movie or read my Kindle until my eyes are so heavy I have to sleep.
My stomach rumbles and I fight the urge to get a midnight snack. Maybe I’ll have a glass of water and a banana.
This the is the time when I feel young again and think about the ’90s or ’80s and listen to songs like this.

Take advantage of the John Lewis sale at SM Home until September 30!

If the Philippines has SM, the United Kingdom has John Lewis.

My friend Yodel who lived and studied in the UK for ten years describes John Lewis as “part of living in London. You buy everyday things there and it’s reliable, it has the lowest prices. But you know the products have been tested and are of good quality. We buy kitchen items, beddings, linens, furniture fabircs, cushions, and appliances like our washing machine and dryer. I bought my school uniforms and we would even eat at the restaurant there,” said Yodel who still visits the Sloane Square store whenever she’s in London.

This is what John Lewis stores look like in the UK: they are huge, with amazing architecture.

So you can see, John Lewis is huge and very much part of everyday living, just like SM is to Filipinos. It makes perfect sense then that SM has partnered with John Lewis to bring part of London to SM stores.
“SM Retail is the perfect partner to help bring the John Lewis brand to a new Asian customer base,” said Andy Street, managing director at John Lewis.
Last May 2015, SM introduced John Lewis to the Philippines in a private event at SM Makati attended by bloggers, members of the press, and excited British expats.

In 1935, two Spaniards—poet Gerardo Diego and scientist Julio Palacios—visited the Philippines to deliver a series of master lectures at the University of the Philippines and the University of Sto. Tomas as a sign of affection and friendship toward its former colony.
Diego and Palacios became part of Manila’s vibrant cultural scene and visited Iloilo, Negros Island, Cebu, Zamboanga, and Northern Luzon. More importantly, they witnessed the approval of the 1935 Philippine Constitution.

“The briefs of Gerardo Diego and Julio Palacios together with the press of the time describes everything they saw, heard and experienced along the journey. These Chronicles serve as our guide through the exhibition,” said Valladares.
The exhibition will include a selection of documents, press clippings, audio recorded, and photographs from Fundación Gerardo, together with extra materials about Manila and the islands from different sources was approved during their visit.
