IMDB Trailer


I'm always reluctant to watch a series or movie that is popular. For some reason, I'm usually disappointed, finding that the hype is far greater than the actual plot of the story. This series on Netflix was an exception to my rule.

From the first episode to the last, I was drawn into this strange world that normally would bore me. Who would have thought that chess would be so interesting and competitive? Not this girl.

The back story of Beth really played into how she see's the world and the chess board. She had a unique way of coping and to say the least, she was a complete mess. If you need a good date night show or just to binge on your own, take this show into consideration.
