I binged The Queen’s Gambit on Netflix before the holidays and loved every second. I started it on a lark… not convinced a chess series was for me or that my heart could handle a young girl in an orphanage this time of year. Alas, it was a fantastic series and I highly recommend it!
The Queen’s Gambit follows the life of an orphan chess prodigy, Beth Harmon, during her quest to become the world’s greatest chess player while struggling with emotional problems and drug and alcohol dependency. The title of the series refers to a chess opening of the same name. The story begins in the mid-1950s and proceeds into the 1960s.
Aside from the engaging storyline and likable heroine, I loved the decor and dresses of that time period. I give this one two thumbs up!!
Since the holidays I started over on The Crown. I previously watched the first season and never went back. Also on deck is Bridgerton and Emily in Paris. What are you watching?
