re: About to start Chernobyl
I would recommend taking a xanax before every episode. that show stressed me out like nothing has in recent memory. incredibly compelling television

That would be me. About to start it now. Was thinking about giving Normal People a shot but saw where it was written by a Marxist. Hard pass.

Comparing the chaos of the OT to this bastion of (however snobbish and cliquish) civilization is like comparing a bunch of monkeys on acid to a, well, a bastion of civilization.

Lots of crazy stories that came about from Chernobyl. She was told there was no way she'd ever conceive a kid again. She ended up having a normal child. The three guys that went into the water were told they'd have a week to live. Two of them are still alive today. I'd read the interview scene with Akimov and not showing him was out of respect to his family. He stayed to help at the plant long after the explosion, and he was so irradiated that his face was almost completely gone when his sickness reached final stages.

re: About to start Chernobyl
I actually just wrapped up watching Breaking Bad in it’s entirety for the first time and followed it up with El Camino just last weekend. I don’t get the hype.

I would trade it all to go in fresh and watch Chernobyl again. Lucky you.

ETA: I i’m apparently too tired to pay attention to thread start dates.

Nuclear disasters of that magnitude and like one in Japan should have every nuclear expert involved from every existing country

Yeah, the Soviet Union wasn't going to have that.

re: About to start Chernobyl
Those 3 dudes with the huge brass balls. Cant believe two lived. I dont remember ever watching a series like that that gave you such a feeling of dread. All those people after the explosion. The plant workers, fireman, bystanders playing in the atomic snow. Most of them were dead and they didn’t even know it. shite gave me anxiety. Were there any reports on how russian felt about the show?

Also, dyatlov is up there with the biggest cünts in tv history.

from a production design standpoint ... it is one of the best jobs i've seen in TV, especially considering the enormity and technical aspects of some of those sets. Unreal work.

I read one Russian ex-pat's opinion and he said they absolutely nailed everything, every little bit of Russian culture, lifestyle, dress, all of it.

All 3 lived. One died later (in his 60s), but none died of acute radiation poisoning and 2 yet live.

Remember this guy in Mad Men?



Let's just say he's gotta watch out before he's typecast (I'll just leave that hanging...)

If you haven't listened to the podcast series about each episode, you should. They talk about the attempt to recreate the imagery as best they could, down to road signs, and uniform details.

The radiation poisoning scenes are absolutely brutal, particularly Vasily Ignatenko's final state before he passes. That scene will haunt me for a while. They almost did too good of a job. GREAT series otherwise. If the final scene between Shcherbina and Legasov doesn't move you, I am not sure what would.


Unfortunately, with the exception of the last, was where they had the most dramatic license.

The bridge of death has zero evidence to support.

Even massively acute radiation poisoning doesn’t break down tissue in minutes like shown with the firefighter picking up debris and the plant worker prying open the door with his hip.

The notion that the victims were themselves dangerous. After removing their clothes and showering, there would be no additional radiation to pass on to others.
