I could not believe the points raised in the second episode basically noting they had 72hours to control the fire or the potential hell on earth that would have occurred. Im looking forward to next weeks episode.
The estimations of how much bigger this catastrophe this could have been on a global scale was indeed frightening. And yes, how much actual facts could be pulled out of there during the Soviet era is definitely a factor. I wonder what Russian government officials think of this series so far.

Yeah, can't imagine the panic being in the dark with your dosimeter going nuts.

The human cost of Chernobyl is definitely worse than Fukushima. But in my opinion from a total environmental catastrophe, Fukushima is worse.

I'm luvin' it so far. The depiction of the soviet bureaucracy seems spot on.
Thanks for the thread link. Haven't visited that thread and didn't know there was already a discussion going.
