I feel like it's about time for a good Chernobyl documentary...I've seen some short TV specials, but nothing with some bigger production money involved.

Same. That’s why I was hoping this was a larger dive into the event and the area since then.

We take a lot of radiation training at work and this is very much something that's talked about and used a learning experience for a lack of better words. I fear it'll be "over dramatized" because America, but there's nothing about what happened there that isn't interesting as fuck.

Everything ever dealing with Chernobyl has always interested me! And this makes me sad that I do not have HBO!

Looks good, too bad I don't have HBO...

I remember as a kid they were giving us iodine to drink at school or some other nasty shit to "block" the effects of the fallout.
