I watched the first episode of Gangs of London last night. Jesus Christ!!! That show is a winner
I was certain I had already recommended this show in here but it seems I'm mistaken.

Anyway, hell yes brother. Gangs of London is fucking awesome, one of my favorite things I've seen this year.
For anyone who might be familiar with The Raid 1&2 this series is by the same director and his first foray into TV, so you already know the action and fighting will be some of the tightest and most violent you've ever seen on tv.
Add to that a fairly compelling modern day gang war story set in London with good acting performances all around, and you've got yourself an absolutely fantastic show. I highly recommend anyone who doesn't have an issue with blood/violence to watch it.

WOW! JUST WOW!

I just finished ep 2 of this 7 part series!

A young girl loses her mom after they are involved in a car "accident". She is sent to a orphanage and struggles to find her way/fit in.

When she encounters the janitor in the basement playing chess, she has no idea what he is doing/what the game is. However, she has a gift! The janitor refuses to let her play...at first...but she studies him and goes over the moves/games in her head at night in bed. He then starts to teach her: openings/strategy/etc.

The orphanage administers medication to all of the girls, but that just sharpens her senses and knowledge of the game.

She is adopted, and again, struggles to fit in with her new "parents". After she reads in the paper about a local chess tournament, she reaches out to the janitor for the $5 entrance fee(winner takes home $100). Her life will never be the same!

The fabulous Isla Johnston plays the young(fictional) Beth Harmon and the wonderful Anya Taylor-Joy plays her in her teens/later years.

I don't believe that you have to be a chess fan to absolutely love this series! I am, but that is only partially why I choose to give it a shot. Netflix hit it out of the park with this!

As of 2 eps.....4.75/5

(Disclaimer: My rating can drop is Netflix $hits the bed over the last 5 eps!)

I finished this last night/this morning! Again...WOW! JUST WOW!

Anya Taylor-Joy is stunning(performance and looks) in her role as the main character, Beth Harmon.

Ep's 3-7 takes us along for the ride as Beth enters more prestigious tournaments and her name/reputation rises among the worldwide chess community.

Her goal? Enter the world championships in Russia and seek revenge for a loss to the top player in the world(a Russian.) She will need to overcome loads to make that happen...starting with her pill and alcohol issues and the lack of money needed to get her there.

I thoroughly enjoyed this series. The soundtrack and main score are SO good. Beth's/Anya's wardrobe is so fitting for the mid/late 60's. She has mesmerizing eyes..as you can see in the pic above. A captivating performance!

I remember thinking last night that I would maybe "drop" this down to a 4.25 or a 4.5. I may have been falling asleep and not really paying attention. I re-watched the last ep from last night and continued on this morning. This def held up!

4.75/5!

My daughter watched this recently, reminding me that I'd been planning to check it out. I'm glad I did- it's excellent.

As an unexpected bonus, my daughter now thinks I'm marginally less lame.

Just don’t watch the live action movie. I watched about 20 min of it and I’d rather watch Blade Runner 2049 instead of that pile of garbage.
