The Queen’s Gambit (Netflix)
There is no show that caught my attention and the attention of the world like this one. And it’s easy to see why within the first few minutes of the show. It is just so damn well put together.
In the first episode alone, we get a fully formed narrative, unforgettable characters, a breathtaking score, and cinematography to rival the most expertly crafted films. Then it just builds on this episode by episode. It is like the game of chess itself in this way.
You couple all these achievements behind the camera with the performances and you get a recipe for perfection. This is especially the case with Anya Taylor Joy’s inspiring and heartbreaking performance. She should win every award their is come Emmy time.
If you are one of the few people left with a Netflix account that has not watched this then make that change this holiday weekend. This amazing story of life and chess is the perfect way to ring in the new year!
