The Queen's Gambit: Series recap and reactions

The Queen's Gambit is a beautifully produced, fictionalized story about a genius female chess player named Beth Harmon in the 1960s. We follow her from her troubled childhood at an orphanage to her eventual rise as a world-renowned chess champion. The series is an easily bingeable 7-episodes (the standard for Netflix limited series) and is worth a watch even on the basis of its high production value alone. That said, I personally had a number of qualms with its story and this won't be going into any of my favorites lists (although I found myself fully engaged while watching).
