Storyline

Modern day noir story about Psychiatrist Eldon Chance, who's in a rut. He's middle-aged, his wife wants a divorce, which might put a strain on his relationship with his astute teenage daughter he deeply cares about, and he's getting tired of his professional work. Chance's natural talent for psychoanalysis allows him to easily assess everyone that wants his help but that doesn't mean he can actually cure them or even help them. Everything changes however, when he meets mysterious and attractive Jaclyn Blackstone, who turns out to have both dark secrets and big psychological as well as private problems. But her most immediate problem is her abusive ex-husband Raymond Blackstone, who also happens to be a corrupt cop with connections. Chance falls for Jaclyn and becomes obsessed with helping her but he quickly realizes that he's in over his head. Help eventually comes in the form of a hulking man called D.

Just finished episode four.... Its unpredictably good
3 November 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This noir-esque mystery thriller has grabbed me with it's unpredictable plot and brilliant acting. Being in the age of the 'binge', I usually let episodes accumulate so that I can binge 4-6 episodes at a time, but Chance has me running back every Wednesday to ignore my responsibilities and envelope myself in the mystery of what the **** is going. I don't mean that in meandering plot kind of way but rather it is such a well constructed mystery that I can't condescendingly ruin the series to my girlfriend from flimsy foreshadowing. I really have no idea how it's going to turn out for Dr. Chance, and I love it.

So Hugh Laurie, do I really have to say much? If you're familiar with Stewart Little, you are perfectly well aware of his acting chops. Honestly, he does a very good job of distinguishing what may be considered two similar roles of Dr. Chance and Dr. House. He portrays Dr. Chance as a much more meek and quite guy who retains many deep personal flaws, opposed to the infallible braggadocios Dr. House. The real star of the show and someone that I just can't read is Ethan Suplee as D. He retains intrigue at every turn and gives what I believe is his best performance and the best performance of 2016.

Beyond those few points, go check it out, it's really an incredible show.
