Not your typical hollow drama.
2 October 2015 | by Shopaholic35See all my reviews

Chasing Life is an emotional roller-coaster. You can't help but think about your own mortality while watching it. Not in the depressing wallowing way but in the seize the day kind of way. Just because you get cancer doesn't mean that life doesn't go on and this show is a nice representation of that. I'm not sure how realistic it is as I've not had too much experience with Cancer (thankfully) but it feels real to me. I guess it all depends on everybody's individual experience.

So far the story has been developing nicely and there seem to be many areas that the show can develop. Hopefully it can stay engaging and not go down the pathway of a soap drama. With such dramatic content it's hard not to but so far so good.
