Promising series that should have got second chance.
When I first saw this t.v. series, I thought 'yes' another "Mission Impossible" or "MacGyver". However, the show about Christopher Chance, the man who helps and protects innocent victims from would-be assassins by living as them only lasted seven episodes.
While living on what appeared to be a B52 stealth (that was apparently invisible to radar and the authorities), Chance and his expert team of assistants would recreate the appearance of their clients using rubber face masks and voice trickery. While the 'human target' was impersonating the person who he had to protect, they would live in his plane with his crew until their problems were sorted. This was all done for the pricely some of one year's salary of their client.
This wasn't a bad show, and I can only assume that it didn't get the ratings. It was entertaining, though nowhere near the other series I mentioned. However, it did have some pretty unbelievable storylines. For example, the whole notion that a group of five people who 'did not exist' could live on a state of the art aircraft was fairly far fetched. As was the way Chance could manipulate his voice to sound exactly like his clients.
Anyway, it was good while it lasted. It's only a pity that it wasn't on any longer so it could develop itself a bit more.
