Too bad it was canceled
23 August 2004 | by bcolquhoSee all my reviews

I remember watching this show when it was first on. D.B. Sweeney was a photographer who had "strange luck." It didn't matter if it

was good or bad. It was just "strange." The plot revolves around Chance Harper, or Alex Sanders, and his search for his identity. As a child, Chance/Alex, survived a plane crash in which everyone on board, including his mother, were killed. Too bad it was

canceled. It was just starting to get good.
