    Let me remind those with inferior TVs that this show was even more exceptional when you are watching what real Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos can do.
    The colors and tone mapping were exceptional .
    The soundtrack, the crowd come alive . The black pieces are really black and aren’t grey or have halo with that gimmicky full array backlight of regular leds .

    Watched the whole thing while under the impression that it was based on a true story. Felt dumb afterwards but enjoyed it way more I think.

    Finished watching this with the wife. Great show.

    But I may have said one too many times that I would give it to the red head....

    Thought she was a historical figure, wasn't.

    Show is right up my alley of flawed prodigies.

    Liked. It's good. Right up there with searching for Bobby Fisher.

    An adult series. Huh. Imagine that in 2021 and the era of Marvel and Transformers.

    (I enjoyed it....maybe a 7 out of 10)
