watched the first episode of this mini series and here is what i learned:

everyone in chernobyl had a very british accent and barely spoke russian 

none of the scientists or working personnel knew what a nuclear disaster meant and spent hours milling around watching people cough up blood 

i think you're not quite getting how the soviet techno-bureaucrat mindset functioned given that last point.

some of the over the top theatrics in that were in bad taste, but overall it's decent. it wins you over with the atmosphere mostly, harrowing and horrifying. the score is especially great.

30 Rock, it's not laugh a minute but it's still pretty solid. Lots of good improvised lines in there too.

if you're not laughing once (or more) a minute, you're not paying close enough attention imo 😄

Not surprisingly that Chernobyl thing was nonsense, it had people dying and bleeding from radiation exposure immediately, which didn't happen - exposure to radiation like that, even pretty high levels, won't cause immediate bleeding. Only two people actually died in the immediate aftermath of the explosion, one from falling debris, and another from regular thermal burns. It was only about two weeks later that some of the first responders started to die, 28 in total, from a combination of regular burns and radiation sickness (not everyone who got radiation sickness died, it helped if they didn't also suffer burns). No doubt subsequent episodes will continue to spread similar falsehoods, like thousands of people dying in the aftermath, or the accident causing birth defects.

that's exactly what's shown in the ep.

i'm following the discussion of this on some russian torrent tracker, those people are very allergic to the hollywoodization of facts when it comes to events such as those, so far i've seen no serious complaints about the accuracy. just some discussion about the causes of the accident and how much the ukranians suck.

Shane Meadows blurb on EMDR, his ride through its mind ripping intensity & new work, if he incorporates EMDR into its themes that could be a tasty interpretation

Can anyone recommend any good Scandinavian shows (apart from obvious Broen, of course, I didn't like it at all)? Watched Jordskott recently, what an absolute pile of crap with stupid characters. They didn't even show any of the LORE in 10 fricking episodes. Only a fucking white head of a sea person for barely a second. What a joke. I need retribution.

I remember enjoying The Bridge quite a lot a few years ago..

It is pretty LOL. Can't figure out who is the funniest right now. Liz, Tracy and Jack all have some great lines.

no it's not, they show one guy who's probably dead (presumably the one who died because he was right by the explosion, though in real life that guy was actually vapourised, they never found his body, another guy died from falling debris, he wouldn't have looked anything like that guy with all the burns all over him). they also show another guy (the one who held the door open) resigned to certain death, in real life this guy is still alive (and still pro-nuclear), so will be interesting to see what happens to him in ep 2. they show lots of people coughing up blood and getting immediate radiation burns (plant workers and fire fighters), which didn't happen - radiation burns take a week or two to appear; the only accurate thing was vomiting which can happen an hour or two after exposure. The two in the pump room looked like their faces were melting off, nonsense.

There was also lots of ominous shots of babies and children and the dying bird, which indicates to me they're going to go full on with the bullshit in the coming episodes, but we'll see.

the death count is still two people by your count, and in fact we actually only see one, by the description it looks a lot like Shashenok who was found badly burnt.

If you've had a mild exposure, it may take hours to weeks before any signs and symptoms begin. But with severe exposure, signs and symptoms can begin minutes to days after exposure.

Possible symptoms include:

  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • Headache
  • Fever
  • Dizziness and disorientation
  • Weakness and fatigue
  • Hair loss
  • Bloody vomit and stools from internal bleeding
  • Infections
  • Low blood pressure

basically you suck.

Just started watching The Americans - it seems quite good though the prospect of watching 78 episodes of anything is daunting
