The Queens Gambit

This drama on Netflix of 7 episodes is amazingly well made… how a world/life can run around just one game: Chess! Educational, intriguing and amusing… plus aesthetically pleasing! Go watch!

Reporter: You most have been very lonely (growing up at the orphanage home)
Beth: I am fine being alone
Reporter: do you imagine that you saw the king as a father and the queen as a mother, one to attack and one to protect?
Beth: They are just pieces
...and anyway, the board I noticed first thing
Reporter: the board?
Beth: Yes, the board, it is an entire world in just 64 squares
I feel safe, I can controle it, I can dominate it, and it is predictable.

…so if I get hurt I only have myself to blame
Reporter: interesting!
