The Queen’s Gambit

I watched the Queen’s Gambit the day before The Crown came out. My husband was away for work, it was pouring with rain and I had a cold, so I was looking for something to watch. It was number 1 on Netflix Sweden so I flipped to it, expecting to be bored out of my skull. I last played chess with my father when I was about 12 and have never been interested in it.

By episode 2 I was hooked, and I binged all seven episodes the same day. A few days later I went back and watched the entire series again, this time looking in more detail at the set design, make-up and outfits, which were all absolutely epic.

If you have not watched it yet, I highly recommend this series. You do not have to know anything about chess to watch it.

  1. Excellent series. She is very quirky. Not a natural in the looks department (eyes too far apart?) but excellent acting and like you I want to watch it again and again!

  2. Fantastic series! Those photos above are gorgeous Janet, thank you for posting.. I need to watch the remake of Emma which this amazing actress stars in!
