The Queen's Gambit Is A Must-See!

This week, we've reviewed one of the latest top-pick shows on Netflix: The Queen's Gambit!

The Queen’s Gambit

Available on Netflix

Intended Audience: Adults

Reviewed by Mary Beth

A riveting backstory, marvelous actors, a focus on women in the male-dominated world of professional chess and the rivalry between the U.S. and Russia, create must-see TV in this Netflix limited series. Anya Taylor-Joy, as orphan-turned-chess-phenom Beth Harmon, dominates the screen and the chessboard as she leads a stellar cast in this series based on the novel by Walter Tevis. A knowledge of chess is not necessary to understand that this is great television. Checkmate.

See you next week!
