    "There was nothing sane about Chernobyl."

    I briefly mentioned this on the Discord, but I recently began watching the currently showing miniseries "Chernobyl" produced by HBO. It's a five-part series (and as of writing, only two episodes are out) that details the people on both sides of the aftermath of the Chernobyl nuclear disaster and surrounding fallout. Civilians trying to make sense of what's going on, the workers who risked their lives to prevent further incident and the members of the local Communist parties and government officials trying to stave off information from leaking.

    Although I would've preferred actors using natural language, I have no issue with everyone being Brits. Each episode is about an hour's length, and are all masterfully detailed from every perspective.
    I have attached the trailer to the series along with a couple screenshots.
