Feel like I haven't binged a show in a while. This one follows an orphan in her journey to becoming a chess prodigy filled with drug and alcohol addiction. I enjoy playing chess, but it's not something I do regularly, and even then I only really know how the pieces move, none of the theory. I never had any interest in watching people play, so I didn't think this show would interest me that much. But I was wrong, it's definitely more of a drama than being entirely about chess, but there's a bunch of references to chess theory and old chess players. apparently they hired a chess grandmaster as a consultant, I believe he was a world champion? Anyways I really enjoyed the show, definitely helped take my mind off our blowout loss this weekend/the state of out football program :(. Also as a sidenote, most of the show took place in Lexington, Kentucky in the 60s but nobody had a southern accent?
