Yeah. Watched it over the weekend. OMFG! The firey who was in the final stages looked like a living breathing figure from one of those ghoulish human taxidermy exhibitions that tour about. Stripped to the muscle.

The intransigence of the State in telling the public and those affected absolutely nothing including precautions.

I listened to an interview with Jared Harris on the most recent Empire Magazine podcast over the weekend and apparently the final episode is a play by play breakdown of the actual clusterfuck on the night.

Just an incredible show. Structured perfectly, like a true life detective story that we all know how it ends but is absolutely gripping from start to finish.



+1. Epic, gritty and uber realistic. Read someone familiar with 80's CCCP who said even the tiny details are spot on - like men wearing wedding rings on their right hand not their left. Anyone whinging its not in Russian with sub titles can FRO - If you're reading sub titles you're missing the drama.

some scenes of Chernobyl are directly taken from svetlana alexievitch 's Чернобыльская молитва. Хроника будущего (in french la supplication, dunno the english title), one of the best books on the subject , terribly moving and would highly recommand it if you liked the show

There is a completely valid reason they didn't go the accent route.

The vast majority of the people involved weren't Russian and therefore had different accents (Belarusian, Ukrainian, Moldovan....) and they purely couldn't have done justice to them properly.

Chernobyl is rated number #1 on IMDB... that is rare, not many shows have done that, the last was the first seasons of GoT and Breaking bad..is moreso rare for mini-serese, the last being Band of Brothers ...

I signed up to YouTubes 30 day free trial because I had heard, from a mate and some respected reviewers, that Cobra Kai was marvellous entertainment worth subscribing to.

Thank fudge I didn't pay for it.

Tho Wayne on the other hand is very entertaining. I intend to get thru all of it before the 30 days is up.

Good omens obviously spent the budget on Tennant and Sheen's salaries, not the CGI budget but that was a good call.

Worth watching.

Thought it became a bit of a parody of itself by season 4, sadly. Soapier than a Babs Windsor bath-time tit wank.
Wait... I didn't think it had aired on English-speaking TV yet? So, assuming, er, your friend is watching a less-than-legit copy... has it got homemade subtitles, or are you chaps just fluent in Italian?

I'm about 4 episodes into S3 myself


Season 4 of Gomorrah is available with English Language subtitles if you have the Internet. I've finished it now - loved it.

I watched "When They See Us" the other day. A 4-part mini-series on the rape case of the Central Park 5.

It's grim, but superbly made.

Part two seasons have been utter dogshite, they badly need to wrap it up.
Just a shame they're doing another "themed" coma season.

Last episode of Chernobyl is tonight, yes?

Don't they paint the boys out to be saints though? They were gang members and particularly nasty ones too.

The documentary 'The central park 5' is decent, although also falls foul of the same criticism in parts..

I watched all ten episodes of What We Do In the Shadows, the vampire mockumentary TV show based on the vampire mockumentary film. It's very funny, in a really pleasant enjoy the journey and be shocked by a few roaring laughing out loud moments.

I doubt it'll ever get huge appeal in the US, where it's made, but it has enough of Spinal Tap/Best In Show/A Might Wind stuff going on that there'll be a dedicated hardcore following that it appeals to purely because of how different it is.

That was a brilliant scene, when all the vampires appear. "It's him! IT'S HER!!" And then they all do the dramatic vampire hiss and I wish that was a real way of communicating displeasure in real life.

I will watch anything with Matt Berry in it - (Toast of London a particular favorite)

Watched the first episode and have a few giggles. Have been told by a number of folk that it only gets better as it goes on.

Yeah, couldn’t get past the first couple of episodes of Danger Island. Guess they’ve just completely run out of ideas with the original characters.

Stranger Things 3 is out on 4th July though :proud:

The Noir series was dreadful, a mediocre stories with absolutely no funny jokes in it.
Danger Island I have up half way too.

I just remember thinking multiple times while watching "if you want to make a new TV series, just make a new one!".

Archer has gone well past its sell by date.

Finally saw the Deadwood movie. Very strange viewing experience, there’s only so many times you can say “geez he/she looks farking old” before it starts to distract from the narrative. Condensing what is clearly a season’s worth of material into a feature length film is also frustrating, I get that Milch was keen to wrap everything up but it felt like whiplash at times.

Still, McShane is awesome. Get to watching it cocksuckers

Already renewed. The ratings have been very good for a half hour adult cable comedy.

The movie itself has a pretty large cult following in the U.S.

Is the series just a continuation of the film (which I was a bit 50:50 on - some genuinely lol moments, but a bit too silly/contrived in a lot of places), or does it just build on the concept?

television remake but with different characters, basically the "American chapter" of the vampires (Taika's was the Wellington Chapter)..i.e they can do one British version too if they chose with British actors in UK..the irony is that the 3 leads are british...
