Why no HBO Chernobyl thread?

Directed by this swede:



Who later directed music videos like Frozen for Madonna:



This for Chris Cornell:



And:




Just watched the first episode. The dread! 

Wish they would have dared to film it with russian actors. But other than that, don't know if I can watch the second episode.. haha

    Why.  
    Take a guess:



    (hint: it's one of the most talked about and praised tv-series this year. Maybe not under the rock you live under. But everywhere else)

    It was fucking awesome. I loved it. It was just so well made - if I was a film professor, I'd be referencing it in my classes, lol.

    That was an awesome miniseries.  Still can't believe that actually happened.  Apparently there's an alternate version being made for Russia where the CIA caused the disaster!! LOL.

     I binged the 5 episodes twice.

    it was excellent & i learned more than i knew before.  a lot of every day heroes & Soviet scum leaders.

    The dogs got me & i thought the miners were awesome. Don't want to say too much for those who haven't watched.

    i could watch the whole thing again, but I'll wait awhile cause it's heavy stuff.

    Finished it. Would love to rewatch it. Loved the heaviness of it, and the lack of Hollywoodian tropes and feel.

    ''After the disastrous explosion at Chernobyl in 1986, one of the few survivors, the nuclear physicist Andrei Drozdov, decides to set up an Esoteric School based mainly on the philosophy of Pythagoras. Together with six other Russian scientists, they form a commune at the southernmost point of Europe, the remote island of Gavdos. Behind their profile of selfless workers and Orthodox Russian scientists, several myths begin to emerge in the local community: Might they be spies or perhaps members of an obscure sect? As a consequence of the seven scientists' philosophical quest regarding the need to reconstruct this world and to create a new "immortal" human being, they trigger reactions from the Church and the local community, especially when they decide to build a Temple dedicated to Apollo.''
