Critic Reviews for Chasing Life Season 1

All Critics (16) | Top Critics (8)

Ricci, an Alyssa Milano look-alike, is engaging and strong-willed, but it will take more than girl power for this to be worth chasing.

Chasing Life could be accused of sending mixed messages, but in fact it sends no message at all.

The ABC Family show... holds it all together nicely enough.

Jun 11, 2014 | Full Review…

Ricci makes the balance work, reminding us that a story of a girl with cancer can also be the story of a girl.

As episodes unfold, the relationships resonate, and the characters run deeper.

Conversation-starter drama has hopeful message.

Jun 18, 2014 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Ricci is a pleasant enough presence, though she talks more like a 40 something woman.

Jun 12, 2014 | Full Review…

The series showcased some serious potential - given it has stamina - flowing without getting stuck in a moment too long, while giving a seamless run down of the main characters.

Jun 12, 2014 | Full Review…

While her reaction may be somewhat natural, coupled with all the show's trappings of soapy drama... there's little sense of urgency in Chasing Life beyond its title.

Jun 11, 2014 | Full Review…

When it's not being completely ridiculous, Chasing Life is very good.

    Amazing. The acting by all cast members (with the exception of the little sister) is hilarious, emotional, and simply fantastic. The story line keeps you engaged in every episode, making it one of the better ABC Family shows in a long time.

    A heartfelt, inspiring TV series, Chasing life has taught me not to regret my decisions and to live my life to the fullest because I'm not going to be here forever. This show, shows me what "Chasing Life" really means.

    I like the show but it is stretched out too long. I think there needs to be resolutions and then new problems. I don't like the fact that Dominic still doesn't know. I feel like its been too much waiting. I also think there are too many tracks that are being followed to slowly and so people aren't absorbing the whole episode but trying to keep track of everything.
