A forensic neuro-psychiatrist reluctantly enters a dangerous and violent world of mistaken identity, police corruption and mental illness.
Psychiatrist Eldon Chance, played by Hugh Laurie – is going through a divorce, has a strained relationship with his daughter, and struggling financially. Chance normally doesn’t ‘treat’ patients he just assesses them and referrers them to other doctors with a treatment plan. However, everything changes when he meets Jaclyn Blackstone, who turns out to have dark secrets and major psychological problems. Her immediate issue is trying to escape from her abusive husband who happens to be a corrupt cop. Chance falls for Jaclyn and becomes obsessed with helping her but quickly discovers he’s in over his head. He reluctantly gets help from an unhinged, emotionally disturbed, furniture maker, named D. D also happens to be highly skilled and calculated, with extensive knowledge of tactics, weaponry and hand-to-hand combat.
I was instantly hooked within the first five minutes of episode one, and not just because I love me some Hugh Laurie. This ten-episode season moves pretty quickly and even though some of the plot twists were predictable, I found myself on the edge of my seat.
I absolutely enjoyed this season and I am very much looking forward to the next ten episodes in season two!
