After the couple of chess "guest appearances" in The Big Bang Theory I previously posted, here is something more serious. I am sure it will be to the liking of many chess fans. It is a new series  portraying Arkady Balagan (Shawn Doyle), former world chess champion. Now many of his characteristics remind me of Kasparov, Russian, hunted by the Russian KGB and Putin, very Kasparov like attitude, no doubt he was one of the main inspiration for the character. And he will be using his chess skill to help solve various crimes... Now, I would like to say that I did not like it from the first episode, I was kinda going to pass it, but then it got into me. So if you give it a try, watch couple of series before deciding. :)

In early June 2011 Showcase announced that it would not renew Endgame for a second season. Here is a petition you can sign so Showcase can change their mind and make a second season of this great series. http://www.petitiononline.com/endgame1/
