Having survived a plane crash as a child in which all aboard, including his mother, perished, Chance Harper's every decision leads to incredible displays of luck, both good and bad. Chance tries to cope with the everyday results of his 'luck' with the help of his close circle of friends and the hope that someday he will find his long-lost brother, mysteriously taken away from his family shortly before the fatal accident. Written by Doug Sederberg <vornoff@sonic.net>

User Reviews

This show is why DVD was invented! Why no release yet?
12 October 2005 | by johnnybeyondSee all my reviews

This show was one of the many casualties Fox incurred when they shifted X-FILES to Sundays and tried to fill it's old Friday slot with more quirky shows. This show was great but Fox forgot that X-Files took time to build an audience; they canceled it after less than 10 airings, I believe. DB Sweeney and Francis Fisher were very appealing, but the real star was THE WRITING! Clever plots, centering on luck and coincidence, and good dialog.

I guess Fox didn't think it was a REAL network until they started killing potential late-breakout hits with early cancellation decisions... the one moronic TRUE indicator of a network exec at work!
