Queen's Gambit

If you like chess, or just a good story, I recommend watching the netflix series Queen's Gambit. I really liked it.

    Same goes for the novel, for the more old-fashioned :)

    Anya was a great pick for the role though, and it's a really good miniseries.

    I saw that one and I immediately liked it. Husband and I are going to be watching this very soon as soon as we finish the new Alienist season.

    We watch shows on my computer sitting very snugly next to each other and often yelling at each other when one talks and interrupts the other. Lot of quality time spent together and being married for as long as we have it is really quite a good way to be in each other's company without killing each other. I don't like the big hall where my TV sits, it is cold and vast in there and I prefer the small room.

    We were watching Penny Dreadful and this is the thing I hate about Netflix they just take shows off without warning. I try to use a VPN to watch in the States but then Netflix keeps detecting my VPN. Then halfway through the last season Netflix removed Penny Dreadful from US too. Weirdest thing was over 2 months it would suddenly appear for a day and then disappear again. 

    I also managed to bribe my husband into watching Haikyu and initially he said there is no way I'm watching a sports anime. He was hooked after the second episode and we finished season three in 2 days and are now watching To the Top season 4. Hahahahahaha

    He also loved March Comes in Like a Lion which is about Japanese Chess called Shogi. The game is far more complicated than chess.

    It's as much a story about addiction and recovery as it is about chess which makes it have a powerful message.

    Loved the ending too...

     when she decided to celebrate with everyday chess people.
