Season 1 streaming on Netflix
A masterpiece at its finest, and nothing but the best writing, script, visual, costumes, acting, and plot – like nothing I’ve seen in years.
It’s been so long since I’ve been in awe, wrapped, and grabbed by the core of my being and unable to look away or turn it off. My recommendation? Don’t start watching it too late because I ended up binging the seven episodes throughout the night until late morning, and I loved every second of it, and I’m not even a fan of the game.
With its compelling story and outstanding performance, you’re in for a rollercoaster of chess, drama, thrill, with a soft hint of romance.
A tv-show that is worth every single minute of your time, a show that is not to be ignored.
Beth Harmon becomes an orphan at 9, though what first seemed like a dark and dull life on the horizon changes when she falls in love with the game of chess, and that becomes her ticket into stardom, and sadly, that comes with a price.
The story wouldn’t be as captivating if it weren’t for the superb Anya Taylor-Joy that truly nailed her performance.
Every scene that she was in was perfection and close to magical, leaving you in a trance with your eyes locked on the screen, truly a blessing to my sight.
Cannot wait to see how this marvelous show will continue, but the story and cast defiantly have a bright future if they continue on this path. 10/10
