Review: Hugh Laurie Returns to US TV in Hulu’s New Original Show “Chance”




Hulu-Chance-Series-Hugh-LaurieAfter four years Hugh Laurie returns to US TV and once again plays a doctor, yet a very different one this time.

Huge Laurie plays forensic neuropsychiatrist Dr. Chance. As his world falls apart around him he meets a client who pulls him into a world of mistaken identity, police corruption, and mental illness.

The show was created by Kem Nunn, who is the author of the book (Chance) that the show is based on, and Alexandra Cunningham, who is best known for her work as a writer and producer on ABC’s “Desperate Housewives.”

If you are looking for a slightly dark drama that mixes in a fair amount of intrigue and just the right amount of mystery and throws in some amazing acting and characters that grab your attention then this show may be for you. Or if you are looking for a good drama that can grab your attention and keep you wanting to know what is next make sure to check out “Chance.” But wait. There are a few drawbacks, including an incredibly slow pace in the first few shows as it clearly builds up to a deeper story later.

There is not a lot we can say about the story without giving away too much; however, if you are willing to put in the time you may find a series drama with a deep story line to enjoy. And if you are willing to take a risk and invest a little time “Chance” may be what you are looking for.

Currently there are 6 episodes of a 10 episode run available on Hulu. We give the show a 7 out of 10 stars for great acting and a deep story line but a very slow pace.

You can find “Chance” on Hulu.
