    Somehow this show didn’t have a topic on here before its release. Just watched five episodes and what a beautiful show. Scott Frank’s writing and directing are amazing and so does Anya Taylor Joy’s performance. I’m sure this show will be present at the winter awards and Netflix will campaign for it as I’m already seeing ads on Deadline.

    I knew Anya Taylor-Joy would be amazing playing this role, but I was not expecting Marielle Heller to be just as great at all. Hopefully she’ll be a serious contender to some awards.

    Marielle coming for that best supporting emmy and Best director oscar. Mini Beth was really good, as is Anya. Love to see Harry Melling getting that work. On ep 4.

    That’s my favorite show of the year so far. Incredible! Anya Taylor Joy is a gift, and I knew she’d be big since The Witch. She’s a very talented actress, on par with Saoirse Ronan.

    Great writing, amazing costumes and set pieces, haunting music, top notch performances, it’s a win

    Currently on episode 3- fantastic show. The music, costumes, production is all on point, and the performances are near flawless.

    I have some personally traumatizing memories of chess from middle school lol but this show makes it well worth reliving the horrors of hyper-competitive 12 year old boys.

    FYC:

    Best Director - Lee Isaac Chung (Minari), Darius Marder (Sound of Metal)

    Lead Actor - Delroy Lindo (Da 5 Bloods), Mads Mikkelsen (Another Round), Riz Ahmed (Sound of Metal)

    Supporting Actor - Paul Raci (Sound of Metal)

    Supporting Actress - Youn Yuh-jung (Minari)

    Finished the show. Easily one of the best shows of the year. Such an elegantly crafted show. Everything about it is simply amazing. I just can’t see this missing any awards. Netflix really blessed us by releasing this and Bly Manor at the same month.

    Just finished. Was not expecting to cry in the second half. That one scene in ep 6 (or was it 5) with Beth finding the clippings made me almost burst into tears.

    I fell victim too it as well, a powerful moment. We will be campaigning for Miss Joy.

    8.9 IMDb score plus it has hit my social media feed from various accounts, adding it to my predictions right now!

    Just found out Harry Beltik is also Dudley Dursley. Dude is unrecognizable.

    Actually it’s episode 7 but yeah I cried too like a baby . It was SO emotional. Best finale of the year. Best show Netflix has ever done honestly.

    And it’s the #1 show on Netflix since 3 days now!

    I binged on this like crazy. The ending was perfection and Anya Taylor-Joy took my breath away.

    Best show of the year and I don’t care what anyone says.

    I hope Netflix don’t ruin it by making a season 2 (I know it’s marked as a mini, but you’ll never know these days).

    For Your Emmy Consideration:
    Matthew Rhys for "Perry Mason" as Leading Actor in a Drama Series
    Ethan Hawke for "The Good Lord Bird" as Leading Actor in a Limited Series
    Elizabeth Olsen and Kathryn Hahn for "Wandavision" as Leading and Supporting actress in Limited Series
    Tobias Menzies for "The Crown" as Supporting Actor in a Drama Series.
    MJ Rodriguez for "Pose" as Leading Actress in a Drama Series.

    Honestly this ending has just stuck with me in a way that the ending of a few show’s have this year.

    I’ll be a bit disappointed if this doesn’t get any traction during awards season because it deserves to be in contention. At least for something.

    FYC Emmys: "The Crown" in all categories, "I May Destroy You" in all categories, "It's a Sin" in all categories, "Small Axe" in all categories, Billie Piper ("I Hate Suzie"), Yvonne Strahovski ("Stateless") and Ruth Wilson ("His Dark Materials")
