Another weekend with no SociaLiga events is another weekend to spend on the couch enjoying good shows for hours on end. Our recommendations for this weekend’s binge watch are:
The Queen’s Gambit
Based on the book by Walter Tevis, this story follows the coming of age of Beth Harmon, young chess prodigy and orphan who learns the game from a janitor in her orphanage’s basement. As a teen, she makes her way onto the international chess circuit, traveling the globe and handily beating men twice her age. She also spends that time battling addiction, a much harder fight for Beth than any chess match.
Emily In Paris
It’s 25-minute, eight-episode long season is a quick watch but a very captivating one. Emily, a young American is hired by a marketing firm in Paris. The season shows her struggling with the language barrier, her new career and many, many love interests.
Starring Sarah Paulson, this series aims on creating a backstory to the terrifying nurse from the 1962 novel “One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest”. The eight-episode long season shows the unpredictability of Nurse Ratched and keeps us at the edge of our seats till the end.
The Haunting Of Bly Manor
A sequel to Netflix’s The Haunting Of Hill House, the series follows a governess who takes a job overseeing two creepy kids at the infamous estate and discovers spooky happenings. It unfolds another beautiful tragedy with meticulous attention to detail and characters more haunted than the house.
