So looking forward to season 2
25 March 2015 | by silmarieniSee all my reviews

I took a chance on this series not being particularly attracted by the heavy subject and not knowing the actors.

Since then I learned it was an American remake of Terminales, a Mexican TV series. Having not seen it, I don't know how much or how little Chasing life owes to it.

It is anyways quite a remarkable series. It succeeds in interesting the viewers in a difficult story, and it seems to me it largely succeeds in depicting cancer and its consequences for all involved, in a realistic, nuanced way.

The cast is attractive with good to great performances from Italia Ricci, Richard Brancatisano and Scott Michael Foster. And outstanding performances from Aisha Dee and Mary Page Keller. Not that the rest of the cast isn't worthy of praise but it would take too long to mention them all.

The tempo of the series seems right with each episode keeping things interesting.

The screenwriters succeed in producing 'pro life' episodes without being too preachy and we're never sure if a patient will fight until the end or will loose hope.

The secondary stories and roles are rich and it's a joy to follow them little by little and getting to know the people.
