Good to hear, the reviews were also very generous as well, hopefully I'll be able to get an episode or two in tonight.

I'm gonna give this a shot. Sounds like a female Bobby Fischer with a twist.

Mandalorian this week everyone!

i finished episode 3 of queen's gambit last night and it's really solid. if you've seen 'searching for bobby fischer' then you'll see some similarities especially when it comes to the actual chess action. however, there's a lot more character development and backstory in queen's gambit.

mando S2 - this is the way!

After reading the comments, I watched the first three episodes of Queen’s Gambit tonight. I found it interesting, beautifully shot and I can’t wait to see what happens next.

Just finished Season 1 of Queen’s Gambit, it was a roller coaster mentally and very gratifying.

Just finished it tonight as well, that final episode was very tense and emotional. If anyone hasn't watched it, start now, it's definitely the best show of the year. Hopefully it will sweep up all the awards.

Don't think I'd seen a trailer for it until this thread... Looks pretty interesting/entertaining. I might check it out tonight or maybe wait until I finish Power

yeah...queen's gambit is a limited series...only 7 episodes...that is based on a novel with no sequel.

we really enjoyed it as well. emotional without being overly dramatic. the acting and dialogue is tremendous. really love the scene beth has with her father and lawyer in episode 6.

That was such a good scene, and Anya Taylor-Joy's acting was fantastic. The scene in episode 7, when she goes to the orphanage was very emotional.
