I started 'The Queen's Gambit' this week, and I must say it's certainly exceeded my expectations. You don't have to be a chess player to enjoy this series ( though I am, so I might be a bit biased ). While it does focus on some technicalities as well as aspects of the game ( of course ), they're not so inundating that they lose the viewer.
I am so reminded of myself at that exact period in time ( or era ) when I was the only girl in my house or in school that played chess.
Highly recommend. https://www.imdb.com/title/tt10048342/
