The Prisoner 9 – Checkmate

Queen to King negative 6, check-bait.

I actually had a dream about chess last night. And by last night, I mean last night before I edited this, not last night before I recorded this. And that’s pretty weird actually because I had genuinely forgotten that I was going to be editing Checkmate today. I kind of really want to get back into playing chess but I just don’t have the time to play classical, nor the skill to play blitz. It’s Checkmate, written by Gerald Kelsey and aired on November 24, 1967.
