Critic Reviews for Chance Season 1

All Critics (28) | Top Critics (18)

It is enthralling and intelligent entertainment.

Dec 26, 2017 | Full Review…

Chance seems natural for binge watching, and that makes Hulu's strategy of releasing episodes week by week, just like on television, seem frustrating. Fans of psychological thrillers, though, are likely to find Chance worth the wait.

Oct 20, 2016 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

Chance, despite a great cast and a pilot directed by Lenny Abrahamson, relies too much on coincidence and gullibility to be effective.

Oct 19, 2016 | Full Review…

So far it's involving to a degree but never enthralling to the max... Whatever this is -- it's watchable.

Chance is buoyed by a strong supporting turn from Embry and an aptly nuanced take from the hot-like-fire Laurie, meaning audiences open to a little self-reflection should volunteer to be victims for this one.

One of the best new fall series and - double bonus points - it stars the great Hugh Laurie and Ethan Suplee, who ruthlessly hijacks his scenes.

Even if it's only serendipitous, you won't want to miss out on Chance.

Aug 26, 2018 | Full Review…

Overall Chance is a mixed bag - but stick with it for the first couple of episodes and you may find it draws you in.

Apr 19, 2017 | Full Review…

Though the series remains entertaining, attractively moody, and sensationally well-acted, there's a lack of urgency and personal import that can be felt throughout.

Oct 27, 2016 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Slow, murky, and expertly written, Chance is the kind of dark drama that rewards viewers who don't need an explosion or twist every seven minutes.
