Ever stumble into a show and have it catch you by surprise?


A young girl in the 60's becomes a worldwide chess phenom. Yes, this movie is about a girl who plays chess.

And drinks. And takes drugs.

And it's EXCELLENT. And mark my words- ANYA TAYLOR-JOY will win an Emmy for her portrayal of Beth, the leading role

Trust me. Watch it.

Great series, a few things that I took away from it.

- Girls have sex with every guy that befriends them.

- Alcohol and drugs can be performance enhancing.

- Russian is an easy language to learn.

- The Benny character is David Spade's best performance yet.

Lmao @ David Spade

Funny, after she has sex with "David Spade" she says "..so that's what it's supposed to feel like"
I guess Spade knows what's up

Ah man, how is the derelict? I miss him. Forum is lacking in blackout injuries and inappropriate comments without his presence.
He's doing good. He got a new woman. She seems to have him tamed, which is good.

The actor reminded me a lot of a younger David Spade, he was like the Joe Dirt of the Chess world.






I seriously enjoyed the series though. I'm a shit Chess player but I enjoy the game and thought that they did well in managing to make a compelling drama series using such an unusual vessel in chess.

LMAO @ Joe dirt but you're 100% right, who wears a knife to a chess tournaments
Ditto regarding chess, I love to play but i'm not great.

It is refreshing to see something other than regurgitated super hero movie plots. Her needing the drugs and alcohol in a way other than to drown her sorrows in is different as well
glad you enjoyed it!

I enjoyed it because her weaknesses were something that made her more human, she wasn't some chess robot. Turning up to her most important match ever with a massive hangover, is something that I'm sure a lot of people with self-destructive natures, or substance abuse problems, could relate to at some level.


One day we should have a match to see who is the worst. I think my current score on Chess.com is like 300 and I've been playing on and off for over 30 years..

She's gorgeous. I was going to say "she's way hotter than the real female world chess champion" but then I googled her and she's not the wilderbeast I was expecting. Definitley would.
