I don't play chess, so when I first heard of this new series on Netflix I wasn't interested to see it, but it had some great reviews, so I decided to give it a watch. The first episode had me hooked and I have now watched all 7 episodes in 2 to 3 days.

The series has several good themes, including death, addiction, and fame. The acting and cinematography were great and apparently, all of the chess sequences were based on real games, with the director working with professional players to ensure its authenticity.

It ended on an upbeat note and overall was an entertaining watch.
