    I'm not a huge fan of action shows that don't have sufficient "mythology" or story to connect the episodes, but this one is pretty darned entertaining. There's something about the lead actress that makes you want to keep watching - something close to the Anna Torv effect on Fringe. Cole Hauser is always fun to watch, too. I'll watch at least one more episode.

    Not much to go on here. I understand that pilot shows never are successful, because it takes time to develop a good story. Not sure what the story here is right now. Running and jumping after criminals or developing a story around another blond and blue eye character with a past history. Not sure there was any drama at all. Though I did find myself hating the character of the perpetrator.

    Not expecting much except some low brow action of Marshals chasing bad guy, bad guy out foxes them then Marshals outfox/out -firepower bad guy. Which is what this program delivers, poorly. The action is by the numbers shooting/explosions/chase that doesn't differ itself from any other show.

    The characters are by far the worst thing about the show, the sassy yet strong lead female who

    The characters are by far the worst thing about the show, the sassy yet strong lead female who takes risks to compete in a mans world, she also has a past, comes across as an over emotional teenager. There are the usual second in command also best friend with secret crush. One of the team is scared by another secret past that they cannot speak off, but however seems very happy with life, until brooding close ups are called for. The last character is a 'newbie' who is fresh faced and needs to be constantly told the wisdoms of experience gained by the other team, which is spoilt by these pearls of wisdom having no relevance to the job.

    Not bad, not great. Very generic. Bad guy does bad... cop chases bad guy... bad guy does something predictable... cop finds bad guy... cop fights bad guy... bad guy loses... campy scene... cut to credits...

    Chase is exactly that...a chase. Each episode consists of some unoriginal, boring protagonists chasing an unoriginal, boring antagonist. Despite a few intense moments of action, Chase is overall just another cliche, predictable crime show.

  1. Chase reminds me of "Trauma," NBC's attempt at a Monday drama last year, although the shows couldn't be more dissimilar (the latter was about first responders). They both seem to be placeholders in the prime-time schedule until the network can scrounge up something better.

    If you're looking for a quick refresher course in what the U.S. Marshals do for a living, or just need to know how many fugitives they caught last year (more than 90,000), Chase could be the show for you. But if you're looking for actual TV entertainment? Heavens, no.

    The characters couldn't be more bland, and atmospheric Texas settings are ill-used.
