The Queen's Gambit

It’s full of style, has excellent casting, and pretty good chess1, which is enough to make it into an enjoyable but forgettable miniseries. If only they had put in as much effort and thought into character development as they did in Beth Harmon’s dresses…

  1. I hear, never being much into chess, except that now thanks to the show I’m a paying member at and am very much looking forward to playing a few games with my own children once they’re old enough not to chew on the figures constantly. But I still think Twilight Struggle is the superior game. ↩︎
