Two episodes into The Queen’s Gambit and I can’t believe I’m getting into a sports anime.
It’s been good so far, even if the scene where Mrs Wheatley says she’ll be a good mother to Beth after her marriage ends felt completely unearned as a moment. The oddness of it may be foreshadowing something though so we’ll see.
Just rewatched Mindhunter there. Yes, yes there’s a ‘where the gooseberry fool is my season 3?’ thread but...well I mean, when you watch it...it’ll have cost them a few quid. The authenticity is the price tag, man. But what a show.
Just started watching Alice in Borderland. I don't know the source material but this show is great!
It's basically Battle Royale meets Saw. People are forced to play games where losing equals death. Plus, there is a lot of mystery with how and why all of this is happening. I'm three episodes in and so far the games are clever and there are a lot of twists and turns. No idea where the show is going next, and I don't expect there will ever be a logical explanation for the 'how', but it a good fun watch.
Let us know what you think by the end. I watched the trailer and was initially intrigued but was ultimately put off as it looked a bit too pie in the sky. Maybe would've been better as an anime? BR+Saw sounds good to me though.
