    Chernobyl - HBO Miniseries

    HBO has just launched Chernobyl, a 5-part miniseries about the Russian nuclear power plant catastrophe. The first episode aired Monday night and was very powerful. It already paints a graphic picture of the magnitude of the event and the corresponding atrocities that followed and injustices that occurred.

    I'll be watching it.

    Probably wait till GOT, Billions, Barry, and Knightfall conclude. Then binge watch it.

    I’m through episode three. Watching it with my adult kids. They can’t get over the KGB and denial stuff. I told them Welcome to the Soviet Union.

    If anyone listens to podcasts, there is a really good one out right now that has the writer/producer of Chernobyl talking about the accident, their research, the actors, the correctness and deviations from the truth. The podcast is also called Chernobyl.

    I've had the one flagged to listen to once I start watching it.

    I am definitely willing to give this a shot, but I am expecting that this is going to further freak out the public about nuclear power. Which is irritating at best, and downright dangerous at worst.

    Rule #1: Don't walk into the room where the nuclear core just exploded and your face won't melt off.

    I can’t argue with that.
