Incredibly well done, not only very well acted and engaging but highly accurate, I couldn't spot a single historic mistake, with all the vehicles, aircraft and even the typical crazy paving that Soviet airbases have was correct. The Chernobyl disaster isn't something I know that much about but everything I did know about it was correct with a lot I didn't know. This hits every point that a history drama should in my book!

Great mini series and informative true story of what happened at the Chernobyl disaster. Not a feel good watch, but more a celebration of the heroes that sacrificed their own lives to stop the nuclear disaster from spreading further throughout the world.

So good! Only 1 episode in but hooked. Fascinating insight into soviet life alongside the story of Chernobyl. HBO is on 🔥. Aside: a lot of northern British accents for something in Ukraine...

En af de suverænt bedste limited series de sidste 20 år! Eminent skuespil, skarp nervepirrende instruktion og ikke mindst et production design der på en og samme tid er dybt autentisk og surrealistisk. At få støv i luften til faktisk at føles som ‘a million invisible bullets’ er et mesterstykke af filmisk håndværk! Anmeldt af Peter

INSANE!! Teaches you so much about what happened in Chernobyl. A very intense film with good acting. I binge watched the entire series in a matter of two days. Highly recommend to everyone

I have to say this show has me enticed and gripped in cast, storyline and atmosphere. Brilliantly portrayed from an obviously unsettling incident. Not many series has me gripped, only gravitate towards series that sturs something inside, like Game of Thrones, Breaking bad, Sons of Anarchy, Vikings. I put this is in that catergory, as those shows because it has such a powerful storyline and it grips onto that fascination deep inside. It leaves you so gripped that you long to find out what happens in next episode. Love the atmospheric soundtrack by the way. To cover one point made as a criticism by others..i think its perfect how it is..yes the actors have a strong English accent..but i think you would find if those cast members tried desperately hard to put on a russian accent there would be even thicker criticism. I am going to highly recommend this to family and friends, as they know i will always recommend epic shows. An amazing series i think deserves high praise for brilliance

Makes you really see the corruption that existed during the Soviet times. The theme is dark as was the matter the Soviet government had to deal with after such a catastrophy. The characters are also portrayed perfectly.

Superb series, with great performances all round telling the horrific story of the Chernobyl disaster. In a manner that you can follow. Unfortunately it looses narrative pace 2/3 in.

“What is the cost of lies? It’s not that we will mistake them for the truth. The real danger is that if we have enough lies, then we no longer recognize the truth at all.” What a surreal visualization of a tragedy.

This is not your regular series that you watch. It has a slow pace, a dark themed and is so close to what happened

Takes you back in time and reminds you how horrific Science can be. I already heard about the incident from my parents but this series, with the awesome screenplay, just makes the experience so real. The attention to detail about changing environment and things after the incident is just so perfect. Gut wrenching scenes not for soft hearted. A must watch. Also, keep your patience as the story takes time to build up.

Compelling and obviously considering the subject matter quite harrowing. Some power house performances and I love the mix of accents preferring to concentrate on the performance instead of affecting a Russian twang.

Great series but did not live up to the hype! Found it a bit of emotional porn at times and storyline just moved really slow. Think I would have liked it more as a movie

Almost feels like you are watching a documentary, except for the British accent. Otherwise, kudos for the production and storytelling - deeply unsettling
