    Chernobyl Episode 5 was very important and they did a good job explaining what happened at the trial, the technical aspect and the human errors

    If you know anything of what happened, it really is well dramatised imo.

    I was living in Switzerland at the time.

    Prior to Chernobyl they thought they had it sussed with nuclear shelters for millions.

    When they found out their cows could be producing tainted milk they were jolted into reality.

    The Swiss value their cows rather highly.

    Like Krakatoa a century before, it was a wake up call that we only have one planet.

    But we fall back into a stupor about that again and again.

    The scientists use of cards and the stand was excellent, as was the model utilised by the political leader. They both had nothing to lose.

    But as the KGB boss suggested, history will be written differently. Not an unusual occurrence even today, or tomorrow, if wiki is your source..

    Remy: An Egyptian-American lad exploring his religion and culture in a quirky manner. Pretty good show.

    Vida: 2 very hot Latino ladies (one straight and the other lesbo) struggling to adjust to life back in the neighbourhood. Again, very watchable...

    The Ken Burns one is excellent imo.

    Covered on the docu thread.

    He did that Vietnam one that was a bit too detailed for you, though.

    And of equal importance, how a government makes lying an instrument of state policy to solidify it's hold on power.

    The Russians are making their own Chernobyl series, they will blame the CIA for having an agent there!

    Abby Arcane returns home to Marais, Louisiana to investigate a deadly swamp-borne virus, only to discover the dark, terrifying mysteries of the swamp.

    If you go down the the swamp today, you're sure of a big surprise.

    That has been cancelled after only one episode apparently.

    For Chernobyl fans, note that there is an accompanying 5-episode podcast featuring the writer that covers his research and stuff.

    It is a great listen.

    Just search your Podcast player of choice for "The Chernobyl Podcast" from HBO.

    There is a scene they cut featuring the animal exterminators that is quite harrowing, and some other stuff too.

    One hopes they do a director's cut.

    Oh yup, my post is slightly misleading, they will actually show the Season 1 in its entirety it's just that it's a dead-show walking.

    Just seems strange to cancel a show like that after only one episode. Something to do with the whole Disney / Fox / MCU thing I imagine.

    I hope so because the whole sequence was irrelevant and added nothing to the narrative.

    But seeing dogs being shot should be no more upsetting than seeing cows culled, for animal loving meat eaters of course!
