Anya Taylor Joy‘s “The queens Gambit” 100% RT


Superbitch

What I like about this show is that it avoids the clichés. I think we all expected her to get bullied in the orphanage, to get sexually abused and other horrifying things.

 

The show offers unpredictable character development instead and awards you with characters who aren't sociopaths. In the last 10-15 years shows often have really evil characters who do bad stuff for the shock value, but this show offers a nice break from that.

WOW. This series is the most impressive, beautiful, spectacular series I have seen in a while.

Every character made sense in Beth's journey. Beth was a perfect mix of strengths and weaknesses and her journey was so satisfying and amazing to watch.

Perfect. Deserves critical acclaim. Anya deserves an Emmy!

 



The way everyone came together in the end to help her, and every temptation Beth blocked even though she felt weak at times.

The way she just wanted to revel in the feeling of winning so she decided to walk and then come across these normal chess players who got inspired by her.

That ending sequence was EVERYTHING!

This series was about passion and how people find each other through shared passions.

It's about being left and finding a place for yourself, a home.

This was incredible, who knew a series about chess could be so entertaining. I’ve loved Anya since The Witch and I’m so happy to see her career take off.

I started that movie but stopped like 10 minutes in because I didn't know what I was watching.. is it any good?

Continue, sis. When it unravels, you'll be hooked. It's definitely worth watching.

Exactly! Who knew they can make chess so tension-filled and exciting? This was genius.

My favorite show this year. Like someone else said, love how you expecting the typical bulling, abuse, drama storytelling but instead they went for a realistic point of view. These characters are not one-dimensional but they show good and bad decisions can be made by anyone. 

And Anya is the highlight. She can act. She doesn't even need to speak a word and you can already tell what she is feeling in that scene.

2020 scripted show w/the most imdb ratings now, beating The Outsider.

 

and it doesn't have a 'genre show' advantage, built in franchise appeal, or a-list names to push it.
