Out of the Blue

I wanted to mention my reaction to the second episode of Chernobyl before it came up in the forums here last night, but I was so struck by it I will anyway. I don't think I've ever felt such an impact from any media before this, whether it be a movie, TV show, or book. This was always described as a disaster that could have been far worse, but I was never aware of just how close it came to destroying such a huge chunk of the world. It is truly staggering. The two sides of human nature this exemplifies is also quite striking: The abject incompetence of some of those in charge denying the severity of the problem juxtaposed with the mind-boggling heroism of those who were willing to risk certain death to contain the catastrophe is amazing. Must-see TV indeed.

Why did the helicopter crash anyway? When you see the blade snap off? Was it the heat from the plume or the radiation? Same thing with the guys in the basement at the end when their flashlights fail.

And the show is currently 9.6 on IMDB and that's completely accurate. It's so well done all around. Just an amazing production.
