Since ‘Searching for Bobby Fischer” there hasn’t been a great chess show or movie that really told the game. I’ve played my whole life and this show was inspiring to say the least. It shows the courage it takes to take the game away from people that think they own it (on many levels) and make it your own. What a great show by Netflix.
It’s the best thing I’ve watched since GOT ended. I really like how they intermingled the real story line into this new one and made it work perfectly. It’s also really amusing hearing “the other guy’s” perspective on how it really went down. It’s so funny!
Kind of makes me think of this clip from How I Met Your Mother!
