I will be watching tonight...….who is with me?
Watch on HBO.com
Looks interesting. I’ll check it out on HBO Go.
DVR is set.
I lived and worked in Moscow Russia from 1993 to 1995...…..I met a Ukrainian woman who lost her husband during the Chernobyl disaster. It's amazing how much the Ukrainian government still denies about this horrible debacle.
This looks very good. I'll be watching.
I'm in. I've read some reviews that had a lot of nitpicking in terms of historical accuracy, but others that have said the show will give me nightmares (I like nightmares). Odd choice to invent a female lead when there were actual important females involved with the events, but honestly it was seeing Jared Harris in the preview that enticed me anyway.
I was in my 3rd year of college, majoring in Russian, when Chernobyl happened. There were about a half-dozen of us at my small college who were 3rd year Russian majors. We'd all filled out preliminary paperwork to study for the summer in Kiev, but that happened and we all backed out...
Wow, that is some story!
I was a kid when it happened and because of the weather and the rain some parts in Germany and other parts in Europe were contaminated. We weren't allowed to play outside anymore without being very careful. Outdoor pools and playgrounds were closed. The sand of sandboxes was being disposed of. Eating vegetables and fruits from the garden and the forest was also a problem for a long time. Mushrooms and the meat of wild boars are still contaminated today and are being examined before being eaten. Sometimes the contamination is well above the allowed level and the meat has to be destroyed.
Re: TV show
I like Stellan Skarsgård and Emily Watson. Sounds very interesting! Thanks for the tip!
More English accents????...really?....
Russian accents would make it more authentic?
It LOOKS pretty damn real!
The first episode was extremely harrowing.
You Yanks seem to love 'em!
"'ello, comrade! What's all this, then?"
Have you seen The Death of Stalin?
No, but, I've heard about it....
Riveting first episode...…...I'm ready for number 2.
Recorded but haven't watched yet.
At first I was disappointed that they are just shown once a week rather than four days in a row, but if the remaining ones are as intense as the first, then I'm happy to have a week to recover between episodes!!
Looking forward to watching this tonight. I ended up watching the Ted Bundy Netflix movie instead last night.
it definitely made me feel something. even knowing a bit about these events, the first episode did a great job of making me want to yell at the characters through the tv. it's still so hard to believe that people could be so naive, stubborn, and sh***y.
I think you will enjoy...…...extremely well done.
Russians have always had a different attitude towards things. Their disposition is dictated by thousands of years of history. I’m not saying anything negative about Russians or Ukrainians, but they’re just different in terms of their views as opposed to us Westerners.
