Chance Reviews & Ratings

60 minutes

Based on Nunn’s novel, Chance is described as a provocative psychological thriller that focuses on Eldon Chance (Laurie), a San Francisco-based forensic neuropsychiatrist who reluctantly gets sucked into a violent and dangerous world of mistaken identity, police corruption and mental illness. After an ill-advised decision regarding an alluring patient who may or may not be struggling with a multiple personality disorder, Chance finds himself in the crosshairs of her abusive spouse, who also happens to be a ruthless police detective. In over his head, Chance’s decent into the city’s shadowy underbelly, all while navigating the waters of a contentious divorce and the tribulations of his teenage daughter, soon spirals into an ever deepening exploration of one of mankind’s final frontiers — the shadowy, undiscovered country of the human mind.

Chance is a drama thriller about consulting neuro-psychiatrist that refers patients to specialists and treatment plans. It's nice to see Hugh Laurie playing a main role again as a doctor named Eldon Chance who's life is in disarray. He's going through a separation and is struggling to obtain money to pay bills, support his ex and spends most of his time with patients who are mutilated by life. Through all this he wants to go above and beyond for his patients... a moral imperative to dig into the truth. The show has a great and diverse cast that portrays the unique characters with pose. The story is quite compelling and I'm looking forward to see the underlying plot unfold.

"Eldon Chance is a 55 year old right handed neuro-psychiatrist, of late he is increasingly aware of a mental state he find to be dark and unstable, he fears he has been drawn to the precipice of some new and terrible reality and now having stumbled, he will be unable to keep from falling." Eldon Chance

Hugh Laurie is an AMAZING actor first of all. I mean House was incredible and now chance. I really like that the writers made the title like House. It's so far a good show, it's scary and suspenseful and emotional, which is different from House because he was never as emotional. I really like the take on the neuropsychiatrist. I think it gives medical shows a new approach. It is also really good at showing what some people go through in life, which gives you an appreciation. I really like the father figure that Laurie plays. It's quite adorable I have to say. I even think his character with his patients is just so understanding and calm. So far, good show, I hope the writers keep it up! I'm excited, it already seems like this show can go far.

For intelligent viewers, this was an intriguing, if sometimes flawed series. As is so often the case, it was cancelled without the chance (no pun intended) to find it's audience.

Exceptional new show for Hugh Laurie. Note: Sorry to see Hulu cancel this show. I was really enjoying it. I was under the impression that the beauty of working for this type of company meant that that shows were not at the whim of the general publics likes and dislikes and ratings.. That they would be be nurtured and allowed to grow. It's starting to look like regular network television all of a sudden.

Watched the pilot and had to go back and remind myself what the show was about. It moves way too slow for me.

This show has a very slow buildup. Hugh Laurie plays it excellently, and you find yourself questioning everything and everyone. This is not a fast paced show, and that will turn people off. I am intrigued to see where it goes.

Too dark and depressing for me ... I need a little more movement in my shows, this is way too slow to watch in the fall. It's probably pretty good but I just couldn't get into it.

Having just watched the pilot episode of Chance, I have to say I am intrigued. This tale starring Hugh Laurie, is the journey of a neuro-psychiatrist who has seen more than his share of darkness through exposure to a wide variety of emotionally damaged patients. The pilot episode establishes that Dr. Chance is a compassionate man who aches to help mankind in a more meaningful and practical way. As the series opens Chance's personal life seems to be a mess , but he's doing the best he can to pick up the pieces and go forward in spite of an unpleasant divorce and great financial setback. The first episode further hints that Dr. Chance 's need to help may at the very least put him in danger and most likely lead him down some questionable roads where moral and ethical boundaries will be tested. During the first episode a concerned colleague cautions Chance revealing that he once became overly invested in a former patient and it didn't turn out well. This revelation coupled with Chance's belief that fleetingly rare but critical moments in life present once in a life time healing opportunities, will clearly tempt him to become overly involved to try to rescue someone again. If you appreciate the talent of Hugh Laurie and are looking for a psychological thriller, this Hulu series may be worth checking out.
