Storyline

Modern day noir story about Psychiatrist Eldon Chance, who's in a rut. He's middle-aged, his wife wants a divorce, which might put a strain on his relationship with his astute teenage daughter he deeply cares about, and he's getting tired of his professional work. Chance's natural talent for psychoanalysis allows him to easily assess everyone that wants his help but that doesn't mean he can actually cure them or even help them. Everything changes however, when he meets mysterious and attractive Jaclyn Blackstone, who turns out to have both dark secrets and big psychological as well as private problems. But her most immediate problem is her abusive ex-husband Raymond Blackstone, who also happens to be a corrupt cop with connections. Chance falls for Jaclyn and becomes obsessed with helping her but he quickly realizes that he's in over his head. Help eventually comes in the form of a hulking man called D.

Trivia

The second TV show, after "House," in which Hugh Laurie stars as a troubled doctor whose last name is a common noun as well as the one-word title of the show. (Although in the first case the noun is a concrete object while in the other it is an abstract quality.) Also, Laurie uses an American accent in both series. See more »

Best thing I've seen in many years!
7 August 2017 | by naision333See all my reviews

This is the most intriguing thing I've seen on television in many years! The atmosphere is definitely Noir and the story held my interest with twists and turns I admit I didn't see coming at the outset. Of course the acting had to be top notch to hold this together, and this ensemble cast headed by Hugh Laurie doesn't disappoint. Having grown up in San Francisco where it is set, I can tell you that all the filming locations were real places. I'm a 67 y/o guy who's seen a lot of television and I'm not easily impressed. This is the first time I've been moved to write a review on anything. Do yourself a favor and take a look at 'Chance'. If you like suspense, but don't want to know what's coming, this is for you!
