It's about an 8 year old orphan girl, who learns to play chess, and of course, she's gifted...Sounds pretty standard and boring right? 

 

NO. I've not quite finished it yet, but it's honestly, bloody brilliant. I won't say anymore to not spoil anything, as I went in dry too.

 

Just go watch it. NOW!

It's so refreshing also to just watch a series that arrives as a fully formed adaptation, and doesn't try to morph into an excuse to shart out multiple, increasingly pointless wheel spinning seasons. (The Man in the High Castle, The Handmaid's Tale, etc etc)

I've watched two episodes of this and thoroughly enjoyed it. I didn't buy for a second she was a young teenager in the second episode and I feel like the plot isn't likely to go anywhere unexpected but it's just so likeable and well performed and stylish.

I've only watched three episodes so far but it's one of the best of the year for me - what a lovely surprise of a show. 

It seems to be getting a lot more press and fanfare in the US (based on the amount of reviews I can find) which is a shame.
