The Queen’s Gambit season 1 episode 5 Streaming Complet en Version Française
De retour chez elle dans le Kentucky, une Beth ébranlée renoue avec une ancienne adversaire qui lui propose de l’aider à aiguiser son jeu avant le championnat américain.
Back home in Kentucky, a shaken Beth reconnects with a former opponent who offers to help sharpen her game ahead of the U.S. Championship.
This show started fantastic – fresh, uncertain with some unexpected twists and turns. But as we go along our heroine remains the same as she was in first episode. She doesn’t listen to anyone, every advice is ignored, every plea falls on deaf ears. Beth Harmon has only 3 faces – the smug I’m-the-best smirk, “Stupid!” angry face of loss and slightly sad mug when things don’t go as planned – time for some vitamins! Here and there she acknowledges there is more to life than chess. And that alternative life is completely empty and pointless.
Maybe that’s what they were going for but black and white main character really makes the whole series kinda flat and dare I say a bit boring. So far it’s a solid 6 – entertaining at moments but feels like a documentary. In place of psychological drama and lunge into madness or greatness we are left with silent young woman moving around with head filled with only chess board, pieces and strategies. You wait for something to happen. Two more episodes to go, I want to see it through the end and I’m slightly hopeful that the ending will make up for this washed out second half.
