    Queens Gambit

    I've watched a lot of tv series.

    This is definitely the best I've ever seen, possibly by some distance. There's so much I could say, so much I want to say, but I'm going to leave it there and let you all decide for yourself.

    This show was really good, not often does a TV series get me hooked into watching the whole thing in a couple of days but this sure did! Can not recommend this enough to those who haven't watched it yet

    I've watched a few episodes, seems ok, apart from the chess move mistake that they make in one of the first few episodes when she starts playing with the dude in the basement.

    I didn't catch that mistake - I'm not really any good at chess though (~1250) so I'll obviously defer to anyone who knows what they're talking about, but the chess all seemed believable to me, unlike most references to chess in other things or even when chess is the focus. I watched Searching for Bobby Fischer a while back, I believe the guy who did that was the same guy who adapted this for tv?

    I can't remember what it was now, but I remember noticing it..
