Chernobyl [television, amazing]

Chernobyl [television, amazing]

JESUS THIS WAS WELL DONE. LIKE, RADIATION IS CONCEPTUALLY SUPER SCARY BUT ON FILM IT KINDA SUCKS AS A VILLAIN, SINCE IT'S JUST ACTORS WALKING AROUND WITH NOTHING THERE NOT REALLY REACTING TO IT, BUT THIS CARRIED THE TERROR JUST ON THE STYLE AND SOUND TRACK AND CONSTANT REMINDERS WHAT IT DOES. LIKE THEY REALLY REALLY HIT IT EXACTLY RIGHT ON THE WEIGHT OF THE FACT WALKING AROUND WAS SLOWLY KILLING PEOPLE EVEN WHEN LITERALLY ON SCREEN IT WAS JUST PEOPLE WALKING THROUGH A SUNNY FIELD OR SOMETHING. BUT THEN BEYOND THE BODY HORROR ASPECTS THEY DID REAL REAL WELL WITH THE WRITING, WITH THERE BEING TONS OF MEMORABLE AND QUOTABLE NONSENSE LIKE THE COAL MINERS AND "NOT GREAT, NOT AWFUL". MAN, WATCH THIS ASAP.

PS. THERE IS A BIG PART OF ME THAT HATES THIS EXISTING. NUCLEAR POWER IS LIKE, THE MOST IMPORTANT THING FOR THE FUTURE, AND I KNOW THIS IS JUST GONNA STOKE FEAR ABOUT IT, BUT LIKE, MAN, THIS WAS SO EXCELLENT, I'M STILL GLAD IT EXISTS. IT'S ALL REAL EVENTS AND THEY WERE BASICALLY REALLY ACCURATE AND EVEN POINTED OUT THE PARTS THAT WERE FICTIONALIZED. BUT STILL.
