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

The excellence on display. :jonny4: 

 

Personally I don't think the story quite stretched to 7 episodes so there was a bit of padding, but I'm not mad because the characters, dialogue, cinematography and production design were all so compelling. The relationship between Beth and her adoptive mother I thought was heading for clichéd obviousness but instead they served a complicated, nuanced and fascinating relationship. 

 

My only real issue with the show:


Her addictions never really felt like a consistent obstacle throughout the show like I was expecting. There was maybe one time where it hindered one of her games in the middle and she had a rough spot towards the end, but it kinda felt quite late in the series for it to be that consequential. She seemed to overcome it almost too easily to the extend that it felt like there wasn't much drama or conflict for her to deal with.

 

Other than that, Amazon Originals found dead in the sewer. :clap3:

This is probably the most well done series in a while, I have to applaud the directors, writers, photographers, the cast... everything was magnificent. Binged it in a day and now I am playing on Chess.com... :ahh:

Made me look up IRL stat. Looks like only one woman ever made a world championship, and she got last place. Guess that's why a work about a female chess player had to be fictional.

Being #8 in the absolute ranking and the youngest to reach Grandmaster status while winning several Opens and etc etc is no small feat for a legend like Polgar

I've wanted to watch this for SO long, but I promised my roommate I'd watch it with him and he is DRAGGING his feet and always working... the suspense is killing me especially because so many people seem to absolutely LOVE it
