Started it last night. I've been playing a lot of chess recently and people kept recommending it to me. Pretty good so far.

I loved it. The cinematography was fire, the acting was good and the sports movie vibe was fun in a mini series format.

Cinematography- insane, videography- top notch, acting- great and storyline- superb. I have played 1 game of chess in my life so I was not really interested in it, but this series does such an amazing job of telling a story about chess(and many other things), it had me captivated right from the very first episode. Also kind of fell in love with Anya Taylor-Joy's character at the end of the series, her performance was phenomenal. The color grading was one of my most favorite things too. I'm glad they did not drag the story on to try milk it for money etc etc, it was perfectly told in the 7 episodes, in my opinion.

It's a good watch, but it seems to have nothing to do with chess other than using it as a vehicle for drama.

It's as much chess as the audience can handle. They've adapted real life chess drama, it's not just regular drama.

Chess will always have its nerdy nature, that most hate. The series has just a touch of chess that is enough for the masses.

The drug name they used in the series is fake but from what I read it was a supposed to be a benzo

I remember reading somewhere xanax is highly addictive.

I have a prescription for Xanax, I take 2 0.5mg a day.

It's definitely one of the more addictive drugs I've taken. If you need to take a benzo, ask your doctor for Valium prescription instead.

Installed a chess app back in December and played twice. I still suck. My son picked it up today and started fooling with it though so that's cool.
