Hulu Originals has brought Hugh Laurie back to TV, in the role of a Doctor, who shares his name with the show name. Sound familiar?
Dr. Eldon Chance is a neuropsychiatrist who has patients that need help which is just outside of his grasp. Most of these people suffer from mental breakdowns after extreme accidents and sicknesses. One of these clients has a split personality and a bully of a husband. But with the help of some new found friends, can he make things right?
This new found friend is D (Ethan Suplee), an ironworker who likes to keep his cleavers and axes separate (but equally sharpened). His tagline?
There are no victims, only volunteers.
Chance’s past is unknown and spotty, as he goes through a divorce that he needs money for, but also has checkered teenage years to uncover.
This show is a nice change from most of the shows currently on TV, but is dark and grim, getting a 7 out of 10.
