You're wasting your time. No matter what you say, he's going to say it's propaganda and sensationalism.

Not to mention contaminating other animals and humans was the primary concern of course. The episode pictured men who were not portrayed gleefully shooting dogs and cats and celebrating afterwards but doing a necessary dirty job soldiers have to do sometimes and doing it because they were ordered to do so and knew it has to get done. Even the leader guy said he felt sickened by it initially but one has to get used to it. It was real, it happened and I’m quite sure not one actually enjoyed doing it.

Chernobyl was an epic disaster and this series is giving viewers, many of them weren’t even born at the time a taste of what can occur when things go real bad with nuclear material. It is a learning experience not soviet propaganda meant to pull the wool over the masses eyes, some obviously need to wake up and see that.
The overly sensitive Russian here will find fault with even the smallest item to whine about, pretty pathetic.

This series is awesome so far. Imagine being the two professors who understand the gravity of the situation that few people could even begin to comprehend and then come up with a plan to contain under those circumstances. Hat's off to them....they saved tens of millions of people from certain death

FYI. The female scientist played by Emily Watson is fictional. Craig Mazen felt it would be better to aggregate a number of people together into a single character to help with the flow of the story.

Fake news, obviously. Her Twitter account is not public. And RT (aka the Kremlin) doesn't like the series.

No problem. I wouldn't have known either had I not listened to the follow up podcast for each episode. I've provided links for each one in this thread. Once you find one, it's not hard to find the others. Craig Mazen goes into great detail about decisions he made and information he found to put together this mini series. The amount of attention to detail he did makes me respect the series even more. He also provides additional insight/information on things he left out due to keeping things flowing and also with some due to the graphic nature. I think anyone who is finding this mini series engaging and informative owes it to themselves to listen to the Podcasts. They're long but so worth it.

Exactly my theory for the next end of civilization as we know it, basically a domino effect of nuclear explosions/accidents/fallout where all living things die. Future civilization will be so confused as to what happened to use as there are minimal clues (future civilization would come thousands if not hundreds of thousands of years later and all of our modern infrastructure, buildings etc are buried under hundreds of thousands of years of dirt, climate changes, maybe another ice age, etc).

Constantly showing little kids and pregnant women...now dogs. Pure filth of a show.
You probably should stop watching this show. And commenting on this thread for good measure. Bad things can happen to your mind if you keep watching these horrific acts.

I'll watch the series eventually, but only because I've read/studied the incident from time to time for over 20 years as it has always fascinated me. I can't imagine there will be much to learn from the show, but I'll get around to it eventually whenever work subsides a bit.

I'm very happy to see so many people interested in this historic event however, and kudos to the show for bringing this about. The bravery and sacrifices made in such a dark moment of human history need to be remembered.

No. Still listening to the follow up Podcast. Craig Mazen said he took dramatic liberties with the trial to tie things together. He said the actual trial took weeks to finish. Also others were at the trial which were not in the mini series so it would have been counter to the whole story had he done the trial as it actually happened. Legasov wasn't at the trial. Craig also said Fomin attempted suicide while in prison before the trial. Because of his suicide attempt, the trial was delayed.

I expect you'll find the mini series honors those that died, sacrificed, and stepped up with their bravery; especially how the show concludes with a tribute to all the men, women, and children.
