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.

Totally binge worthy
25 April 2018 | by endia-17132See all my reviews

I literally watched 20 episodes in 2 days. I love the acting and intelligent scripting. The character development is stellar and I could go on! Is it fiction? Yes. Is it slightly unbelievable? Yes but maybe no. Isnt that what entertainment is? I am so completely disappointed I won't be getting to binge out and check out on a 3rd season! Big mistake, huge! There's plenty of other crap Hulu could scrap, if you would like to know, have your people call me direct as I have no people.
