Storyline

Endgame is an original drama series centering on brilliant chess master, Arkady Balagan. Traumatized by the murder of his fiancée, Balagan has become a prisoner in his luxury Vancouver hotel, terrified to step outside. To pay his bill, Balagan starts solving mysteries - using an unlikely band of hotel employees and chess fanatics to do his legwork. Arrogant, brilliant and charismatic, the Russian-born Balagan uses the skills that made him chess champion of the world to solve the crimes that mystify others. He imagines events, interviews the living and the dead, and runs conflicting scenarios - all in his head. And we get to watch right along with him as he solves crimes that baffle the police. In Endgame, we see genius at work. Written by Avrum Jacobson

Amazing!!
14 May 2011 | by See all my reviews

I just watched this accidentally and geez this is one thing i might have regretted my whole life if missed! From start to end, this series will keep you tight and unpredictable like no other. If i am not wrong "Shawn Doyle" does a very fabulous job with his role. Which of course will cause lots of laughter and plot twists which i admit "like never before seen on a drama"(you might prefer CSI already did this kinda job, but NO! it never did that on a humors way like this series does!) without a slight bit of boring sequence...

In fact, Watching an episode of this drama will sink the time faster just like watching an episode of "Game Of Thrones"....

Trust me, This will be the "Thing" that you seek on to be in a plot solving series if i am not wrong...

Just give it a try will ya! I'm sure you'll never regret watching it!
