Chernobyl

New HBO mini series, solid cast, acting and writing. Highly recommend.

It really has been tremendous. How you make such a gripping drama about fighting an enemy you can't see, hear, smell or touch really is a testament to how good the writing, acting and directing is. I've read a lot and watched a lot of documentaries and Valery Legasov as well as the liquidators and it is mostly very accurate. The roof workers had one of the shittiest jobs in history. 90 seconds of work and a lifetime of terrible health problems. They even make Dyatlov the thoroughly unlikable ******* he was. Unbelievable to think that was his second major nuclear accident in which he received a massive dose of radiation and nearly died.

Donít mean to take this political but the actual writer is trying to suggest that his own show makes him think about Trump.

Pretty disgraceful, I will still watch the show but god damn, why canít he keep politics out of his show?

Yeah, it's a genuinely brilliant show. I think it'll go down in history with Band of Brothers and other miniseries as one of the best of all time.

I did catch the first episode and I was actually quite impressed. I mean, yes, you can make the obvious jokes about the British accents and all, and I don't know how much artistic license was taken with some of the personal interactions. But damn, it's been a while since a pilot episode of something actually got such a strong response from me. Like, for example, you genuinely feel a sense of dread and horror for those people [SPOILER - highlight to read]: watching from the bridge, totally unaware of what is actually happening to them in that moment. So, I definitely plan to check out the rest.

Everyone who watched from that bridge died in real life. It's actually now known as the bridge of death.

I decided to watch an episode to see what all the fuss was about. It wasn't bad by any means, but I expected to be blown away. Maybe it gets way better.

Of course we see Jared Harris [SPOILER - highlight to read]: hang himself again. Poor Lane Pryce.

The exact time varies, but they are around an hour. Wiki says 60-72, the episode I saw was 63 minutes.
