I read this book no less than 20 times, and now it's coming to life on Netflix.
I'm in!! 😀

@ketchuplover saidI binge watched the whole series on Monday. It was wonderful! Followed the book with only a few minor deviations. The actors were excellent. I'm prejudiced, since it's my all time favorite novel. I'll be watching this many times. 🙂
Apparently Kasparov and Pandolfini were consultants

I was a bit disappointed in how it turned out and I won't be watching to completion. I cannot recommend the series to friends/family, perhaps a good reminder of why I don't like Netflix creating a generation of binge-watchers.
Chess is not about taking green pills and skipping school. 🙁

Please pardon my nitpicking, but Bobby Fischer skipped school a lot, and he was a rather strong player. Green pills?--well, it's just a fictional story.
