Joe Rogan showers praise on Walter Tevis

Rogan recently shared his thoughts on a popular new Netflix series called ‘The Queen’s Gambit.’

The caption said, “The Queen’s Gambit on @netflix is really good. Just finished episode 2. It’s kind of amazing how good television shows are now. It used to be the movies were the really interesting, intelligent things to watch, and television was always kinda second rate”

“There were good shows, but they were never quite as good as films. Now, however, it’s the opposite. These new streaming shows are like watching a great movie that goes on for 7 or more hours. Movies can still be great, but even great ones seem limited by the time constraints of a single film that has to wrap up in a few hours”

The show has received a lot of praise ever since its Netflix release, and Rogan is one of the many people who have found the show extremely interesting. 

In a recent post, Rogan took to Instagram to laud novelist Walter Tevis who has written books such as ‘The Hustler’ and ‘The Queen’s Gambit’ among others.
