Topic: Chance

Just watched the 1st episode of Hugh Laurie's new series "Chance", Kem Nunn's adaptation of his own novel.

Already it has me hooked. Intriguing plot, good performances from a strong cast, well written dialogue, deft direction. I think Hugh may have picked another winner.

Re: Chance

Based on Kem Nunn's novel, "Chance" is described as a provocative psychological thriller that focuses on Eldon Chance (Hugh Laurie), a San Francisco-based forensic neuropsychiatrist who reluctantly gets sucked into a violent and dangerous world of mistaken identity, police corruption and mental illness. After an ill-advised decision regarding an alluring patient who may or may not be struggling with a multiple personality disorder, Chance finds himself in the crosshairs of her abusive spouse, who also happens to be a ruthless police detective. In over his head, Chance's decent into the city's shadowy underbelly, all while navigating the waters of a contentious divorce and the tribulations of his teenage daughter, soon spirals into an ever deepening exploration of one of mankind's final frontiers - the shadowy, undiscovered country of the human mind.

I love this show. Made a banner and intro for thread before we get more posts in.

I never got into "House" but admired most all of the other work Laurie has done, including Chance. He really brought it, as did the rest of the cast and crew. Odd show but well done and it drags you in and won't let go.

Re: Chance

Laurie is an amazing actor and had me hooked with "House". I was bummed when the show ended and he said he wasn't going to pursue any more acting and if anything would possibly like take on a role as director. So when I accidently came across a trailer for Chance and saw him it and I was like WOOT!

Anyway... the show kind of had to grow on me a bit. Was for sure a bit strange at first, but the more I got caught up in it's web, the more I liked it.
