Never did I think a show with a focus on chess would be so good, but it’s about so much more than a game. The main character is so dynamic and interesting and absolutely brilliant. This show is incredibly well done

I didn't expect it but I actually loved this mini-series. The main actress is very good and plays the role very convincing. I always expected a big drama to happen but I was pleasantly surprised about how the show managed to stay focused on chess and the mindset behind it. In my opinion is this show another great Netflix production and it managed to bring back the popularity of chess. I think everybody should watch it!

One of the best miniseries I’ve seen in a long time! First and foremost the cinematography and the score is just world-class! Do yourself a favor and notice how beautifully it’s filmed and pay special attention to the music also! It’s so well done and perfectly woven into the story! I love the lead actress and how she depicts the main character and you follow her growth throughout. I especially enjoyed watching a story that made you happy - we have so much bad happening these days so I really enjoyed rooting for her! It has a perfect combination of seriousness yet feel-good energy! I’m torn if it’s a full 10 only because I felt the story sometimes slowed down a bit too much and was missing momentum. Definitely worth the watch 👏 I wonder what this series will do for local sign-ups in chess clubs ♟ I bet it’s gonna go up 😃

Loved this! So compelling that I need to learn the basics of a chess game. Basic storyline is about a girl breaking into the world of chess. There is a subtle side line about the main character becoming an orphan and how that affects her. Wonderful character portrayals!!!

The best TV show I ever seen since a long time. That kind of direction that gives chill. Ana Taylor Joy is just amazing and give the perfect demonstration that she will be on screen for a long time. One of the most talented actress of her generation. No matter if you like chess or not, the story is too smart and too strong to let you behind.

Amazing how She is such a strong woman and the lost of winning, She show us what wrong dessions can Cost and how Hard it is to find friends if you don't think like others i have much ecspirens of that and being new, how She shows in a man domantet game She can be as good as them and Even better, how She worldmaster at the age 20 it's just increddebel. Now in these days i feel like we take so much godness and turning it into madness and we bleed on others and She shows that She did to but her friends still was her friends and will help her No matter what that's just amazing. God i could't stop watching.

My husband loved it which is why I gave it a 10. We rarely absolutely love shows at the same time. Especially binge watching it together. It's rare. Drama but intense.

Astounding acting. You understand why they waited years to ensure proper production. Anya Taylor-Joy is absolutely transcendent as Beth Harmon, an orphan and chess prodigy dealing with addiction and her own journey as a prodigy. This show caused a global resurgence of chess! I loved how it portrayed 1950s Vegas, Mexico City, and US/Soviet relations.

Anya Taylor-Joy is FIRE itself in this enthralling period drama. The Queen’s Gambit is the book I never read that I didn’t know needed to be seen on screen. The ending left me awash in a wave of ecstasy. BRAVO 👏 👏 👏

Love the hairstyle of the main character. Even though I know how to play chess, I wouldn’t say that you really need to know how before watching this. Strongly recommend.

This is an incredible piece of art wrapped into 7 great episodes. The storyline was amazing, and I just fell in love with the characters. The progression of Beth Harmon throughout the series is so well done. I would love to watch this again some day and I am going to recommend this to everyone I know or who asks. Positives: - Character Development - I absolutely love her friends - The sound Design *Chefs Kiss - The visual/light design *Chefs Kiss - The mom storyline was heart wrenching. - Once you watch one episode you had to watch another one. - I loved the set designs and the progression throughout the 50's and 60's. Negatives: - A little slow at times. Overall: 4 1/2 out of 5 Stars
