  • Dear Netflix, maybe it would be a good idea to start a campaign for the show and Anya, since the Emmy nominations have been announced!! C’mon people!!!

  • Please make 2 part

  • One of the best shows I seen in along time

  • God I love this show

  • Thank you all for such a great smart interesting show. I just adored everything about it, the acting, the story line, the message, the visuals. Great great. Thank you all

  • Anya Anya joy ANya Taylor AnYa TaYlOr JoY U r ThE OnE

  • The Only Queens Gambit that exist is Robert Queens.

  • i liked it so much I will rewatch it soon.

  • What an awesome show. Surely going to make a video about it soon. ❤️

  • This series must win all Emmys which are only exist! The best series i have ever seen! As a chess player i loved everything in that show. Every moves not a director's "invention", every moves is the move in theory, which all professionalist and not only, study during the whole "chess" life. But the Queen of all this story is Anja Taylor Joy. Amazing actress, very talented! The story is perfect. I am reading an original book now, and that is how screenplay should look. Everything is the same as in the book. What i wanna say, this show is great. And long time ago i haven't seen such a great story, plus perfect soundtracks from 60s!

  • Anya😍🇦🇷❤

  • Why Anya Taylor is such an angel :( She's so beautiful


  • Man I gotta rewatch it now🔥

  • Where is Isla Johnston???? The reason I continued to watch the rest of the series, was because of the work she did in introducing the initial characters like Mr Sheibel.

  • I've always wanted to learn the game of chess. 👌🏾♟

  • The ending was weird though. She misses her flight and plays chess with strangers. What happened after ?

    • Not really weird. It's just to show that Russia, as much as United States was paranoid about, is actually not a bad place. And also the respect Russia has about the game of Chess.

  • wow


  • brilliant show

  • The score!! I hope it wins the Emmy

  • Please renew my favorite show Julie and the phantoms
