Finally started it last night. Watched the first two episodes. So far I love it. Definitely will fly through the rest. I'm trying to quit drinking and I was thinking chess might be a good way for me to keep my mind occupied when I would otherwise be mindlessly drinking. This show is inspiring that idea further.

If you wanna watch this to get inspired to get of your addictions, this show might not be for you.

But a good show nonetheless.

I like the music and the cinematography. I think the younger actress did a better job than anya taylor joy who plays the part maybe too robotic at times like too autistic.

Oh sh!t.. I just realized Anna Taylor Joy is Gina (Michael’s wife) in season 5 of Peaky Blinders. I like her even more now!

Read about the Netflix influence yesterday somewhere

I guess everything chess is going crazy now since that show came out...chessboard sales, clicks on chess websites, people joining clubs, etc...Talking about 4 -5+ times more sales and traffic than normal(although board sales is a fairly small number to begin most likely)



Crazy how much influence that platform can have...hope they use it for good more than they use it for nefarious purposes

the period scene was a wtf moment seemed unnecessary. they could have implied that she got her period without showing her bleeding.

Seems you were manipulated to think about manipulation in everything. Can't you just enjoy things sometimes?

Finished last night. Best show I've seen all year. I hope Josh Waitzkin is somewhere crying at how inferior his own biopic was by comparison.

her nipple is visible in episode 6 ...just a heads up with 11:16 mins left in the episode. it is also very evident she was a ballerina in that scene she is dancing in her underwear.
