Netflix's The Queen's Gambit is quietly one of the best TV shows of 2020

You need not know chess to be able to take pleasure in The Queen’s Gambit on Netflix – however it absolutely cannot damage. In episode 1, we see how protagonist Beth Harmon (performed by Anya Taylor-Joy) has the capability to visualise the chess board on the ceiling of her orphanage’s bed room, paving the means for her journey to changing into a (troubled) chess prodigy. 

Every time somebody mentions a well-known chess maneuver in The Queen’s Gambit, I stare blankly at the display screen and vaguely, stupidly want Beth was enjoying Tetris as an alternative.
