News & Interviews for Chance: Season 1
Chance wants to be a kind of seedy California noir, complete with femme fatale but is personality-less instead.
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.
Chance, despite a great cast and a pilot directed by Lenny Abrahamson, relies too much on coincidence and gullibility to be effective.
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.
[Huhg] Laurie is excellent, with an air of priestly weariness and a rougher, sadder version of his House growl. The shape of the story takes a while to emerge, but it could run and run.
It's a glum, glacially-paced noir, and I probably would've stopped watching midway through the first episode had it not been for the presence of Hugh Laurie.
Overall Chance is a mixed bag - but stick with it for the first couple of episodes and you may find it draws you in.
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.
Audience Reviews for Chance: Season 1
May 02, 2021Started out with a lot of suspense and intrigue, like a San Francisco film noir, complete with femme fatale, morally flawed protagonist, and fascinating off-beat character D. But the plot gets silly in the middle, Chance is just a plain bad psychiatrist, his extreme choices make no sense, and Laurie and Moll have no sexual chemistry. D's lines provide some comic relief. Not worth the time investment. Should have been a tight two-hour film.
Apr 17, 2021Average. Hugh Laurie's character becomes rather unlikeable and I found myself rooting for his death to stop his stupidity.
Dec 07, 2020Dark and disturbing. Barrage of F-bombs diminishes the terrific story line. "D" is a perplexing character. You never know what he will or won't do but someone is going to get hurt badly.
Aug 27, 2020Hugh Laurie should never be cast in a show with sex scenes....he is like flat soda. No charisma, sexiness, appeal and he isn't even attractive. A better actor cast in his part would probably have kept this show on the air longer
Feb 20, 2018Brilliant. Gripping. Why O why only 2 seasons?
Feb 16, 2018Anything with Hugh Laurie is class but the Ethen Guy was top class too in this!
Feb 02, 2018A Thriller that has you guessing at what's to come next ... and you'll be wrong. Ethan Suplee and Hugh Laurie head up this cast of excellence!
Jan 03, 2018For the first few episodes I thought Hugh Laurie is not the right guy for the part but that quickly changes. The story is strong and will hook you. I hope Hulu can put some more coin into the series to keep the fire going.
Dec 30, 2017Great in parts, repetitive and tedious in others. Hugh Laurie resisted playing a doctor again after House but was persuaded as the character was so different. He pulls it off which is a credit to him.
Dec 14, 2017Wonderful psychological drama.
