With 2020 being  The Year of COVID-19, TV became more important than ever. With the stay at home order in place, TV became our lifeline for information, as well as our greatest escape during these unusual times. And nothing seemed more unusual than a show about a female chess champion being my favorite tv show of the year. I don’t know when I decided The Queen’s Gambit took my top spot. It wasn’t something I wanted to watch. My wife put it on your Netflix Watchlist and it became one of those Sunday binges. Anya Taylor-Joy (The New Mutants, Split, The Witch) was great at usual, and great writing/directing by Scott Frank for the 7 episode limited series paced extremely well.
