It’s fantastic. I think radiation exposure is now my number 1 worst way to die after watching it.

It’s pretty close to perfect. The only flaw I had was that it was all in English and not Russian/Ukrainian.

I think they did that so we didn’t have to read subtitles.

You didn't see graphite on the roof

Most likely that and probably convenience. It doesn’t ruin the show for me at all, but I look at it the same way as I would if they made Narcos with a British Pablo Escobar.

The guy picking up the chunk of graphite was holding the equivalent of 3 million xray's in his hand.

The scene on the roof where they are just straight up scooping the graphite up was absolutely nerve wracking. The Geiger counter going crazy and the first person view just knocked it out of the park.

It’s absolutely amazing. It is honestly one of the best mini series shows I’ve ever seen, and I don’t say that lightly. It’s that good. Been watching it some today as well.


ETA: spoilers.






The scene where he explains everything with the cards is genius television.

The only other one I can think of is spinal injury at this point, after watching that documentary on HBO. Thanks A lot

In my opinion nobody does non fiction better than HBO. You will love Chernobyl.

I love how when Legasov hears that it’s “only” 3.6 he says “that is substantial.” And then it ends up being 15,000.

His speech about the bullets is also awesome. Something like three million billion trillion bullets that won’t stop firing for a thousand years or whatever.

English actors would have had problems with that.
