Found this neatly put together TV-chess rhapsody on YouTube. See how many different shows you can name (the answers are given on the YouTube page for the video). You just gotta love "early Spock's" eyebrows. (And yeah, they got the board orientation wrong sometimes.)
I don't know the show in question, around 2:45 in the film, but it really annoys me when somebody tips the king over after being mated. Amyway, thanks for the video.
These scenes are great. Here are the chess in movies versions. Can you identify the movies?
Thanks for the links to the other "chess rhapsodies", Bill,
...and I'm, of course, a big fan of your lists !
Here is the list to choose from (over 1,700 movies)
0:17 is from Season Two of Columbo, the episode is called "the Most Dangerous Match." It's the Lieutenant on the right.
This is great! I was able to catch a few;
Three's Company, Cheers, Fraiser, Everybody Hates Chris, Lost, Friends, That 70s Show, Smallville, House;
How do I know all of this?...
But, they left out the best of all:
I should really stick my nose in a book now.
It looks like Phoebe uses a checkers leap at one point (a tactic made famous by Ellie Kemper in the video Checkmates), and is that Elijah Wood at 2:50?
