I watched this 2 weeks ago and forgot to mention it pting.png

Considering I don't know the rules of Chess (well, I used to 20 years ago... but I've completely forgotten laugh.gif ) this was surprisingly gripping and absorbing! Outside of the chess games, I enjoyed the coming-of-age element to the storyline and rooted for Beth to triumph, not just in chess, but with her life after having a difficult upbringing.

This was a period drama done really well - I appreciated how much effort must have gone into making every shot throughout this season look authentically 60s. Some of the outfits were so glamourous. It was a visual treat!

wub.gif Definitely one of the best shows of 2020.

Oh we watched this last weekend and it's great. The performances by pretty much the whole cast are great but Anya Taylor-Joy is just so compelling in the lead role... my favourite character since Killing Eve first aired.

Yes, I finished this on Friday and loved it from start to finish.

And how quick things escalated when she went full alcoholic and that eye make up was quite something!!!

Oh and never knew 'Venus' wasn't Bananarama original!!!

ugh this was perfection cheeseblock.png

Everything was so amazing. the acting, the direction, the script, the costumes, whew. Easily one of the best TV shows I've seen in a long long time.

and can we talk more about Anya Taylor-Joy SLAYING this cheeseblock.png I've been stanning her for a few years now but she blew me away during this, one of the best performances I've seen in a long long time!! And every time I thought she couldn't get better, episode 6 & 7 whew she was perfect *.* ready for her to properly break-out now and surely she's a golden globe/emmy winning contender for this *.*

Same!!!!!!!!! I was shook when that came on, that scene was so good & I always thought Bananarama's was an original aha *.* And now I've been listening to the original so much since watching!
