Easily one of the shows of the year. Going into it even if you don't like chess, you will come out the other end wanting a game. Written superbly with a very impressive performance from Anna Taylor Joy. Thoroughly recommend to anyone debating whether to watch.
An incredible start to an incredible show. If you are a fan of Historical dramas including the Last Kingdom or Game of Thrones you will enjoy it. Its fast pace and excellent characters and story make this first season gripping throughout. One of my favourite shows and I highly recommend it.
