Who isn’t watching a pure fictional show about chess and it’s top players in the 60’s?

I know, WTF BRC? But wait, It’s so well made, acted that it’s worth your time. Get back with me with your flames if you don’t agree.

Same co-creator and director (Scott Frank) did that Netflix series. Watched it a couple of years ago and loved it. The cinematography is soooo outstanding. Some of the best shots I’ve ever seen in a Western. Looked it up and the guy won Oscars for cinematography before.
Just started Godless because of your post.

It's very good. Thanks!

The last episode has some of the most amazing cinematography I’ve ever seen on TV or movies. Pure art.

When I first learned of this series I was almost positive it was about Judit Polgar (the best woman player in the history of chess). Some of the scenes in the trailer I believe were at least inspired by Polgar's autobiography and in interviews. I watched the series through https://torrentsites.com/tv-shows-torrent-sites/

When I was a serious player I would also literally dream about chess. I would play games in my sleep. I would wake up and eat chess books for breakfast. I quit sports and would go home to play chess. Chess consumed my life. It became too much at one point and that's when I started using hard drugs.

It's cool that it's cool to love chess. This might not be the average American deer camp, but it was ours last weekend. Chess just seems to go well with hunting.

Yep... While they were inside playing chess, these guys and gals were hanging around outside. :-)
