I am surprised this doesnt have its own topic here - Its very well reviewed (In Denmark at least), and is a period piece based on a book, or rather, a mini-series, which is always something interesting, instead of those series or shows that are waaaayyy too long for me.
We’ve seen two episodes so far.
I am terrible at watching shows these days that are longer than say, Modern Family and its ilk, but this? I gobbled each episode up without nary a thought for how long they are (45 minutes - 60ish minutes). ´
At almost every turn, what I expect to happen, gets turned aside and something else occurs - Where I expect a normal show to focus on one thing, it rarely doesnt and it also helps that the main actors (Actresses?) plays extremely well and is just a joy watching.
If you enjoy chess, as I found out quite a few people here does, this should really be up your alley.
