Chernobyl
« on: May 30, 2019 at 05:48 PM »
Chernobyl is a five-part historical drama television miniseries created and written by Craig Mazin, and directed by Johan Renck. A co-production between HBO and Sky UK, it depicts the Chernobyl nuclear disaster of April 1986 and the unprecedented cleanup efforts that followed. It features an ensemble cast consisting of primarily European performers, led by Jared Harris, Stellan Skarsgård, Emily Watson, and Paul Ritter. The series premiered in the United States on May 6, 2019, and in the United Kingdom on May 7, 2019. The series has been strongly praised by television critics.

Better rated daw than Breaking Bad at GoT. Meron na ako 3 episodes, pero hindi ko maumpisahan kasi nga mukhang boring. Masubukan nga minsan.  :)

Better wait the series to end on it's fifth and final episode before watching it if I were you. Kasi nakakabitin  ;)

You can watch this mini series in one sitting, that's how GOOD it is.

Really liked the simplified way Legaslov explained the cause of the explosion at the trial.

Geez no containment housing on these Soviet reactors.  Any accident and the core is exposed to the atmosphere.

On a reactor as large as Chernobyl 4, that’s like have a Hiroshima A-bomb exploding at the site every 30-min.

For a complete experience , read

1. Read Midnight at Chernobyl
2. Play Stalker: Shadow of Chernobyl , and walk around the doomed reactors while fighting off special forces units, mutants and other supernatural thingies.

^^ I actually became interested on Chernobyl history because of the game Call of duty 4 modern warfare Pripyat mission.

Why HBO's "Chernobyl" Gets Nuclear So Wrong

"In the end, HBO’s “Chernobyl” gets nuclear wrong for the same reason humankind as a whole has been getting it wrong for over 60 years, which is that we’ve displaced our fears of nuclear weapons onto nuclear power plants."

In reality, Chernobyl proves why nuclear is the safest way to make electricity. In the worst nuclear power accidents, relatively small amounts of particulate matter escape, harming only a handful of people."

Agree actually.  The fear of nuclear weaponry has somehow been transposed to nuclear power.  Fukushima had 3 reactors meltdown and we don’t hear about mass casualties.

Tulog ka muna!  ;D Joking aside this series is good, though it makes people fearful of nuclear energy which we shouldn't be afraid of daw.

Hahaha! Maybe it will get better in the next episodes (5 lang pala). Oo nga sabi din nung isa kong friend from Pinas which is a film critic maganda daw and also one of the recommended series sa podcast na sinusubaybayan ko.. Try ko ulit hehehehe
