Out on October 23rd!
Updated OP with the teaser that came out today. Looks pretty cool, here for anything Anya related
Started this tonight and unexpectedly watched four episodes. Pretty great so far. The actual chess playing is starting to become a liiiittle tiresome, but doesn’t feel like it’s really taking away from the pleasure of watching yet. The score is really standing out to me too
I just finished this and thought it was phenomenal. Anya absolutely kills it.
Three episodes in and loving it. It kept tripping me up that Anya was supposed to be like 13 years old during those episodes
Yeah same. I thought when the adoption agent (or dean maybe? Whatever her title is) steamrolled her about being 13 in front of the parents, the implication was that she was actually older. But time moves pretty fast in this show and at one point down the road they say she’s 17.
I swear every time the credits roll I’m reminded all over again that this isn’t a movie. The overall production is outstanding
“So what will your fellow radicals think? You being with a rich white lawyer?”
“Fuck ‘em if they can’t take a joke”
Holy shit the emotional release when
she takes the phone from Townes and it’s Benny and all those guys. I nearly jumped off the couch to cheer
Three episodes down and I love everything about this series so far. If I didn’t have work in a bit, I’d absolutely mow through the rest in one sitting.
Just finished it, absolutely incredible. Might be my favorite show of the year, at least tied with Normal People. Furious I don't have any episodes left
I also feel like an idiot because I only just now found out this wasn't based on a true story/Beth Harmon isn't real haha
Big same! That moment really made me recognise how emotionally invested I had become.
Also that very last scene left such a wide smile on my face. What a satisfying cap to the series.
Really enjoyed it, but the last episode felt like the writing went super cheese out of nowhere lol. Maybe it was earlier on and I just didn’t notice.
I also feel dumb because for most of it watched thinking it was about a real person lol.
The scene in the basement of the orphanage broke me almost as much as Beth.
I don't think you're wrong, but I was so hyped I didn't care
Man, this was such a quiet force. Fantastic performances all around. Almost made me want to give chess another shot
I've actually been playing some free chess against people on Chess.com - Play Chess Online - Free Games
turns out i'm really bad at it
I enjoy playing once in a while but most of the time it just stresses me out.
I had fun learning about and playing it when I was a child, but at some point, I accepted that I am not smart enough to be good at chess. A casual game every now and again is nice, though.
I just won two games in a row and have never felt so fucking brilliant, just savagely violent victories.
I could be a grandmaster
anyway this show is great
I tried to learn because I got a job teaching it to kids. It’s way too cerebral for me. I can’t think that far ahead. On the plus side it was a great self esteem boost for all the elementary school kids consistently beating me
I think I’ve played like one or two games ever, and had really no idea what I was doing haha. Not sure I’d have the patience to learn at this point, but I’d be lying if I said this show wouldn’t be the reason that I bought a board to fuck around with one day
Did it take anyone else an excessively long time to figure out why the actor who played Beltik looked so familiar, or just me?
He's been in a lot of stuff lately, mostly Netflix stuff (Buster Scruggs, Devil All The Time, The Old Guard). I like him
