We're watching it now, and we're hooked. Too bad it's just one season right now. Btw, it's tranquilizers, not opiates.The Queen's Gambit
It's some new show on Netflix, I think it's 7 or 8 episodes, about an orphan girl in the 60's who is a chess wiz. I'm only 1.5 episodes deep so far but I'm digging it. At the orphanage when she's like 8 they get her addicted to what I think are opiates so that's an entertaining twist that follows her as she ages. She learns chess from the maintenance man in the basement of the orphanage and then gets adopted at 13 or so. The woman playing the grown up version is Anya Taylor-Joy. She's really pretty. She has those Disney princess eyes kinda like Alison Brie.
Not sure if this was mentioned, but we're also watching The Undoing on HBO with Nicole Kidman. Someone is found dead, and an investigation ensues. I think it's one of those old-school series', where you have to wait until Sunday night for the next episode.
