Model Answer:

In today’s world, there are countless programs available to watch on the internet. From dramas to comedies to documentaries, there is something for everyone.

When did you watch it?
One program that has recently caught my attention is “The Queen’s Gambit,” a drama series on Netflix.

What was the program about?
“The Queen’s Gambit” is about a young girl named Beth Harmon who becomes a chess prodigy. The show follows her journey as she rises through the ranks of the chess world while struggling with addiction and personal demons.

With whom you watched?
I watched the program with my roommate and we both really enjoyed it. The acting is superb and the story is both engaging and emotional. We were on the edge of our seats during the chess matches and couldn’t wait to see what would happen next.

Did you like it?
One of the things that stood out to me about “The Queen’s Gambit” was the attention to detail in the production design. The sets and costumes were meticulously crafted to capture the essence of the 1960s, and it really added to the immersive experience of watching the show.

Another thing that I appreciated about the show was its portrayal of complex female characters. Beth Harmon is a strong, independent woman who defies societal expectations and pursues her passion for chess.

Her journey is inspiring and relatable, and it was refreshing to see a female character take center stage in a story about a traditionally male-dominated field.

The supporting cast was also excellent, with standout performances from Marielle Heller as Beth’s adoptive mother and Thomas Brodie-Sangster as her friend and rival Benny Watts. The relationships between the characters were well-developed and added depth to the story.

Overall, I would say that I really liked “The Queen’s Gambit.” It is a well-crafted show with complex characters and an interesting story.

The cinematography, production design, and music all work together to create a captivating viewing experience. I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a good drama to watch.
