i know im a bit late but i actually thought the first episode of chernobyl was pretty disappointing. It jumped around way too much, following too many characters and just feeling messy overall. But man, it really found its footing in the 2nd episode. I just finished watching it and it was excellent all the way through. Can't wait for next week's ep.

I watched the Pet Semetary remake. I thought it was pretty good but like most Stephen King stories, he can’t end for shit. Still love the atmosphere and visuals. They also made some good changes that played with what you knew about the original to create more tension. 7.7/10

The chernobyl plant workers all wearing the same suiits can make it confusing. But you need to have a decent amount of Wikipedia knowledge to know what the plant workers and first responders were doing in order to realize just how completely insane it was for them to even be there after the explosion occurred.

 

But also the other thing is that it highlights the denial they had, and they good reason to not believe that the reactor exploded. No one ever thought that nuclear reactors using those materials could explode.  And its that denial that results in them making so many horrible mistakes within the first few hours. From the plants workers, to how they allowed fireman there on the premise, to how they didn't notify the people of Pipryat
