    "HBO NOW has always been a reliable streaming site for me so this is the first place I went to when I heard about Chernobyl. I mean where else would it be better to stream an HBO series more than HBO themselves. Video and sound quality is good. "

    "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."

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.

Instead of counting sheep, I'd be wondering about what would happen. Happy that I got to know but also can't believe this is based on a true story."

    "Picture and sound quality is alright, it's just that the video sometimes stops to buffer and I'd have to pause at a pivotal part which sometimes just ruins the momentum. What made me watch Chernobyl is that it all seems so real and it being able to see it as a third person just makes me think why can't everyone just be proactive???"

    "Good site to stream for free if you don't mind the ads popping up or the video buffering from time to time. I don't think there's another word to describe Chernobyl other than INTENSE. I think one episode per night is the limit, I needed time to process what I just watched haha"
