What are the best websites to watch HBO's Chernobyl miniseries?

Chernobyl is a historical drama TV miniseries that was produced by HBO and Sky UK. The show was created and written by Craig Mazin and directed by Johan Renck. The show features an ensemble cast led by Jared Harris, Stellan Skarsgard, and Emily Watson. The series premiered in five parts in the US, simultaneously with the UK in May 2019. The show is based on the nuclear plant disaster that happened in April 1986 in the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic, Soviet Union. It tells the story of the people who caused the disaster and those who first responded to it. It drew inspiration from the recollection of Pripyat locals in the book, Voices from Chernobyl. The book was written by Belarusian Nobel laureate, Svetlana Alexievich. It even included some of the lesser-known stories from the disaster. One of them is about a team of miners tasked with digging a critical tunnel underneath Reactor 4.

Chernobyl received widespread critical acclaim when it debuted. Critics from major publications have made parallels between the show and contemporary society. They focus on the power of information and how dishonest leaders can make mistakes beyond their comprehension. If you have yet to watch this multi-award nominee and winning show, now is a great time to do so as it's already complete and can be watched as a whole.

DID YOU KNOW?

HBO's new miniseries, Chernobyl is now the highest rated show of all time on IMDB. With a rating of 9.6, it has already surpassed Game of Thrones which has a rating of 9.4. Chernobyl is a five-part miniseries that will introduce you to a horror story in the guise of a historical docudrama. It's scary enough that it has a touch of realism with how the people deal with denial and deception. That the people in power's worst fears are that of humiliation rather than the death of tens of thousands. The irony of some scenes where people enjoyed watching something that would kill them in the following days. Chernobyl retells the story of the 1986 disaster where it became the world's worst nuclear power plant accident. The accident happened due to the operators doing actions which violated the plant's procedures. An unstable reactor was operated without adequate safety precautions. Which led to the explosion. It is stated that 31 people died within a few weeks of the accident due to the exposure to radiation and thermal burns. In 2018, the United Nations Scientific Committee on the Effects of Atomic Radiation (UNSCEAR) reported that 20,000 people under the age of 18 years had thyroid cancer. The psychological effects of the whole incident also led to a higher number of suicides, alcohol abuse, and apathy. 

There are existing Russian documentaries which dives deeper into the whole Chernobyl incident. The Russian Woodpecker is an example of such documentary. This event goes to show how a simple act of a handful of people can cause devastating damage to the whole world.

    "My friend and I were just looking for something to watch on hulu, a typical night for us but Chernobyl was something else. Didn't even know that even happened then, but we do now! I guess it is informative as much as it is damning. We both got invested in those people's lives, we need to know if they're gonna be okay."
