    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.

    rubbish

    On episode 3 and I think this is my fave show of the year. Surely it has to get into the Globes, SAG, WGA, DGA etc? It’s phenomemally written, its direction is so unique and really everyone’s performances (specifically Taylor-Joy and Heller are phenomenal).

    FYC OSCARS : VANESSA KIRBY FOR "PIECES OF A WOMAN", AMANDA SEYFRIED FOR "MANK", ANTHONY HOPKINS FOR "THE FATHER", CHADWICK BOSEMAN FOR "MA RAINEY'S BLACK BOTTOM", PROMISING YOUNG WOMAN (BEST ORIGINAL SCREENPLAY).

    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.

    Beth finding the clippings made me almost burst into tears.

    I also cried at that scene too.

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

    Just finished and I think I’m rooting for this up until the Emmys.

    I was not expecting this to be as good as it was. Each episode just got better and better, the actors were excellent (with Anya Taylor-Joy and Marielle Heller on another level), the crafts were phenomenal (I might root for these crafts over The Crown this year because I don’t see anything else being more deserving), the writing was genius and the direction was fantastic.

    The whole finale was so good. Might be one of my favourite episodes of TV this year. The clippings scene in the episode made me cry.

    I don’t see how if someone finishes this how they can award something to UnorthodoxMrs. AmericaThe Comey RuleNormal PeopleThe Undoing etc. I can understand <i>I May Destroy You </i>because that was also on another level but I need this to sweep please!

    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.
