Woah! This show is far more dark and thrilling than I had imagined. It sucks you right in. If you don't like psychological thrillers, maybe skip this one.. it's not for you. But if you do, holy cow! Try 3 episodes and I promise, you'll be hooked with plenty to think about. You'll find yourself trying to guess over and over what exactly is going to happen next. But you just don't know exactly, and feel clueless about how this story is going to develop. It's _that_ kind of thrilling: totally leaves you at the edge of your seat, wanting more. And great acting, with a master performance from Ethan ("D") Suplee.

I found Season 2 to be much better than Season 1, with a more clear focus both in structure and in themes.

Hugh Laurie plays another (fairly) genius doctor who is, ironically, less fun than his previous Dr. House was. I found the character of Doctor Chance interesting but his endless forgetfulness and fake apologetic nature were annoying to me. Regardless of this little tidbit this is a very thrilling show that unfortunately got cancelled way before it's time. It's moody, smart, it's exciting, it's binge-worthy and features one of the two best sidekicks to root for you could imagine. If you're a fan of House you'll have a hard time shaking the House-vibe coming from Chance at times but that's to be expected. Hulu dropped the ball in not marketing this show enough, I happened upon it via word-of-mouth and wouldn't even have started it if it wasn't recommended. Be prepared for an exciting show that leaves an open ending to what could have happened next.

Great show!! Season 2 is just as good is the first. Love it's dark humour. Dexter 2.0...

I really liked this show, particularly the first season. It's just too bad it ran out of steam so fast. Where the first season is full of intrigue and is a pure noir thriller, the second season never really seems to find what it wants to be and switches genres from one episode to another (from psychological thriller to action revenge flick to family drama) and it never pulls the viewer in as much the first season does. "Too bad" seem to be the keywords to describe this show. It has a great cast, good character development and the cinematography is really good. It's just too bad the writers didn't seem to know where to take it after the first season.

What a great show. I can't stop watching. Very intense and suspenseful. Love it.

Hugh Laurie is awesome as always. Great phycological and suspenseful entertainment. Every episode has a new twist and turn, and leaves you hanging out for the next instalment.

A great series that gets you totally engaged from the very first minute. At first I was surprised to read that Hugh Dr House Laurie got into a doctors role again. I didnt read the full synopsis. I was a bit sceptical about this most likely being a sort of "lets try to be as succesful as that other doctor" - totally wrong. The opening episode created a basis for the rest of the season, one that I did not expect. From the third episode or so I thought I knew exactly in what way it was heading, but I kept wanting to see more to find out if I was right or not. Every episode there was one or even more extra pieces to the puzzle. But still, no total overview. And at some point I started wondering if I even was working on the right puzzle. It's amazing how basically everyone in this series is crazy - at least to some extend. And the path that Eldon Chance is taking towards ... (what?) is also very interesting to follow. I totally enjoyed it. Of course, the series takes 'real' (neuro)psychology a bit lightly, and split personalities also don't really work in the way the series shows - but I'll accept some artistical liberties on that. Overal a very interesting series which kept me entertained from the first episode all the way till the end. I don't see yet how they will be able to make a season 2 story as well thought-out as this without becoming dull or just plain and simple weird...
