This is the most intriguing thing I've seen on television in many years!

Gretchen Mol is terrific as the fragile damsel, and Ethan Suplee is riveting as D.

Very good, but just a bit drawn out.

The pilot is intriguing and certainly captivating.

It is true that it has a dark tone throughout, which can sometimes wear on you, but the plot turns are unexpected and manage to keep you engaged at all times.

The story is great the actors are very good, the guy who plays the cop is really good but this bring me to the main point, the lead actress Gretchen Mol does a really good job and Hugh Laurie is absolutely amazing, he has really killed it but for me the main guy who steals the show here is Ethan Suplee as D, this character is absolutely stunning, the delivery the confidence, this guy has taken this role to another level and I really really hope he wins an award for this, he's the show for me along with Hugh.

With each episode I get on the edge of my chair.

Final point: the idea that people "enjoy" watching & rate highly such a depressingly bad, incredibly slow show (I decided on one) shows just how degenerate US society is today.

the first episode is a slow teaser of an introduction to himself, his friends and his ex-wife and daughter.

Hugh Laurie is very engaging as Doctor Chance.

) The cinematography of Chance is fantastic, the screenplay intelligent and mesmerizing, the acting superb by both Hugh Laurie and and the rest of the cast, the suspense is gripping as it's built up gradually when Dr. Eldon Chance finds himself in pulled into an strange and dark underworld thick of secrets and lies.

The whole thing is very intense.

Definitely one to watch but be warned it's a bit slow.

This compelling series-noir follows Hugh Laurie as a neuropsychiatrist who plays white knight for a femme fatale in distress, assisted by a helpful tough guy.

Engrossing and Intelligent .

If you're not, don't waste your time, as your reaction will be the same as mine.

What a completely fascinating and original storyline.

intriguing characters and gripping plot albeit predictable at times .

Slow start, engaging middle, satisfying ending (first season) .

The show is so gripping and so mysterious and spooky, you feel at any moment anything could happen and it really keeps you on your toes, its a fantastic thriller.

This noir-esque mystery thriller has grabbed me with it's unpredictable plot and brilliant acting.

It is so compelling, my husband and I have been binge watching it.

Could there be any story line more confusing?

you must be patient as the first three episodes are slow to build the characters and story line.

The pace is really slow, and the episodes are filled with meaningless dialogues that add nothing to the story.

The descent into dissipation and amoral dissolution encapsulate the characters, whose lack of awareness -- notwithstanding their superficial rationalizations -- is stunning.

Thrilling through out all episodes.

If your looking for some cerebral, intriguing and mystifying entertainment then this is it...

What a waste of time.

Chance keeps you on the edge of your seat.

However as a TV series it seems drawn out, confusing and hard to follow in parts.

For examples, the "we are all pilgrims" uttered by Hugh Laurie's character is the most melodramatic, confusing nonsense ever.

This is either a depressingly bad, incredibly slow show or it is a depressingly slow, incredibly bad show.

So many twists and turns and about 8/10 episodes keep you white knuckled on the edge of your seat.

Chance is a psychological thriller that is both intriguing and intelligent.

Every shot is well crafted, and the way that light is used to help enhance the story being told is just stunning.

Confusing, hard to follow or care .

However, the combo of good acting and enough tension made it enjoyable even tough you can easily guess how it ends.
