I know nothing about chess, but I know I relate to these 34 Queen’s Gambit memes
Can we talk about the tension between Benny and Beth?
Netflix quietly dropped The Queen’s Gambit last week and it’s easily one of the best shows of the year. Anya Taylor-Joy, 60s wardrobes and the return of Thomas Brodie-Sangster. Who would have thought a show about chess and tranquillisers would be so damn addictive?
Everyone on Twitter is flipping out over the show tweeting their reactions about The Queen’s Gambit, mainly their love of Benny, Beth, Harry and Jolene. In fact can she just get her own spin-off show?
There’s also a lot of appreciation for the fact that no one has any clue how to play chess and yet we all know it’s pretty fit watching Benny and Beth playing a game together.
These are the 34 best The Queen’s Gambit reactions and I am so here for them all:
1. What a queen

3. We are not worthy
It’s Beth Harmon’s world and we’re just living in it.
