I'm surprised no one has made a topic on this miniseries yet, as it's being claimed as one of the best shows on TV in a long time, if not ever. Maybe because not many have access to HBO?
For those that have seen it and that it wrapped up this past Monday, did you enjoy it? I loved it and found it exceptionally well done. The casting, special effects work, music, pacing, and the effort to explain exactly how the combination of human error, scientific fault, and political circumstances at the end all came together to enable such an enormous catastrophe. I've gained a much better understanding of how things went wrong much than all my previous research into the disaster taught me, and I'm hugely fascinated by Chernobyl in general and've read up a lot on it.
For those who haven't seen it I'd highly recommend finding a way to watch, it's worth it.
