Surprisingly engaging, even for someone who has trouble completing a series.
I know absolutely nothing about chess. I don't know why I picked this when it showed up in my recommended, but I'm definitely glad I did.
The story is simple yet unpredictable as the plot line skips all the hand-holding most shows do from the beginning, giving me this confused intrigue to jump to the next episode. Because you're unaware of what kind of show this is, what it wants to be, and what vibes you should actually be getting, it almost creates a genre of it's own.
Beth is a great, (at least from my standpoint) autistic-coded female who needs no apologies. While cinematic attempts to show people at their "worst" are up for debate, there is no doubt her character's disconnect will resonate with some viewers as she carries this story.
It managed to keep me watching until the final episode.
