I’m not that big into chess but I did enjoy it as a kid and during my recent stint of going down the YouTube Rubik’s cube rabbit hole, I inevitably came across some chess tournament highlights. The logic, cleverness, tactics – it’s all pretty fascinating, especially at the professional level (granted, I don’t know what’s going on 99% of the time but it seems cool :D). Recently, I came across the Netflix series “The Queen’s Gambit” which is, surprise surprise, about chess!
I wasn’t expecting it to be as good as it is. Even if you’re not into chess or find it boring, the character arc and story are great enough to stand on their own. The show could be about a girl who grows up with anxiety and addiction who is finding herself through… um, boxing and it’d still be a great show :D Recommended!
Oh, and good luck today, America!
Enjoy Scene 18 – “Gullible”!
