What were you watching yesterday night?

A new take on the Adams’s, by Tim Burton. Whats not to like? I, at least, had a good time watching the first episode.

Give it a chance, it’s really fun. It’s bad chess and bad boxing, but the whole is much greater than the sum of its parts. :rofl:

It’s one of very few things where the cringe factor contributes to enjoyment :rofl:

It’s like watching the boxing version of the Bongcloud.

The level of chess displayed in that match above is slightly more sophisticated than “Bongcloud”. It’s actually pretty decent, if you take into account that they are also punching each other in the face in between. Even the commentator made a mistake, when he said that Belenkaya should take that knight on f3. That would have been a blunder, but Belenkaya played the correct move, Ne5, which is not immediately obvious, especially after getting your face smashed just a few seconds ago. So credit where credit is due, she was pathetic as a boxer, but deserved to win. Sure, she also missed a mate in one, but okay, she got beaten up over that mistake, so all’s well… :rofl:

Still, the absurdity of it is a major contributing factor to enjoyment, I’m not contesting that.

Wow! That must have been quite an experience. I envy you!
You are right, he was one of a kind, just extraordinary. Otherworldly, as you say.

that was a wonderful experience.
Years later, Argentina came to the same stadium with Juan-Pablo Riquelme. Riquelme was a different go-to player, he gave the Argentine team so many opportunities to let the Germans run into empty space. unbelievable. But Maradona was everything in perfection
