Chase: Season 1 Reviews

June 8, 2020
But virtually everything else in the pilot that's not the direction or Giddish fails. In particular, the dialogue in the script is atrocious.
June 8, 2020
The biggest issue with the series is that it's just not memorable or captivating enough to warrant an entire season.

The pilot also has a tendency to tell us too much, as if it was a primer on crimefighting (or on cop shows).

Track, pursue, capture, repeat each week as needed. Yawn.

And the only scary part is that there are amateur reality series that look more professionally produced.

It's a decent hour of mindless entertainment.

In the end, Chase might want to toss out everything else and just give us a full hour of nonstop chase.

Chase settles for inertia, when the task of capturing viewers would appear to call for bolder strokes.

These boots are made for yawning. A sprint to nowhere, this generic catch-the-fugitive procedural has one asset: Kelli Giddish as the feisty macho heroine. Run, Kelli, to find better scripts.
September 20, 2010
It consists mainly of that very thing we are often aphoristically asked to cut to, with just enough banter and back-story to let you know that these are in fact humans we are watching and not just exceptionally well-coordinated robot drones.
September 20, 2010
The characters couldn't be more bland, and atmospheric Texas settings are ill-used.

If you're looking for a quick refresher course in what the U.S. Marshals do for a living, or just need to know how many fugitives they caught last year, Chase could be the show for you. But if you're looking for actual TV entertainment? Heavens, no.

Chase is as close as TV gets to a Western these days, and that's a good thing. It spins a good yarn.

September 20, 2010
The story moves like a bullet toward the inevitable apprehension of the fugitive, flying past leaden dialogue and plot holes so quickly that if you enjoy the crime-drama formulas that are in play, you can enjoy the show.
September 20, 2010
The Chase cast is led by a believably rough-and-tumble Kelli Giddish as Annie Frost.
September 20, 2010
Chase is a very competent action-adventure.
September 20, 2010
Action will only take the show so far, but eventually viewers need to care about the characters or they don't have a reason to keep watching and Chase turns into a show that gets watched as an afterthought, not as appointment viewing.

It isn't badly acted. I don't remember any of the performances at all. It isn't horribly written. I don't remember any of the dialogue or plot machinations.
