I haven't, we cancelled Netflix recently, but my co-worked suggested it last week. He said it was great.

Almost done with it and agreed. Especially considering I don’t know anything about chess.

I’ve never though I could be so engrossed in a drama 90% about chess. Maybe the drugs and alcohol being the other 10% is what did it lol.

They did a great job on the preview and almost sucked me in, but I wasn't sure at the time if there was more than 1-2 episodes available.

It's a short series so it's run is complete, like Tiger King, right?

Man, if the first season was too much for you, you'd have never gotten through the second. Let's just say that after Laura's killer was exposed and then caught, things got to this combination of really weird and also having long, generally pointless, sub-plots with supporting characters. Like, I had no idea what purpose any scene with, uh, the biker guy who I think was dating Lara Flynn Boyle's character, was about.

I still loved the show because it was so different, but for a while, there was Agent Cooper and the main plot and 20 other characters with their own plots, so it was pretty disorganized as far as the vibe. I'll also say part of the reason I loved the show was that I was about 18 when it came out, so a show with Boyle Sherilyn Finn and Madchen Amick was WELL WORTH my time.
