Money Heist

"Bobby Fischer would've never faced Spassky with his girlfriend at his side."
This one of the more interesting quotes from the Netflix series "Money Heist". As with a lot of series that have the criminal mastermind up against the police, there is a lot of chess symbolism scattered throughout. The pensive stare at the chessboard, moving pieces to show the next stage of the plan, and just the general "chess = smart" vibe, this series employs a lot of these tropes. 
Nonetheless, they don't overdo it, instead using these shots only when necessary. The rest of the time, it is an incredibly enjoyable heist series, where the good/bad guys are always one step of the police. If you have the time to watch it, I highly recommend it.
