The amount of denial is terrifying in this. Grim but totally gripping. 

 

Don’t know if anyone has listened to the podcast that accompanies this but it really adds to the background of whats going on.

That ending to the second episode.........if that doesn't give you the fear then nothing will.....


Sat watching it in silence with the lights off and found it genuinely disturbing...

Then Sky showed the teaser for next weeks episode over the credits and ruined it.

Best show I’ve seen in a good while tho.

Yeah, this show is very intriguing and a knife edge ending to the 2nd episode. What night does this air on Sky Atlantic so I know when to look out for the 3rd episode on Kod1?

Watched the first episode last night. Wild the amount of denial that went on when it all kicked off. 

Also took me a while to take the da from Friday Night Dinner seriously.

Exactly. When they were talking about everything being under control, they meant the news blackout, not the actual risk of nuclear disaster.

Paul Ritter is brilliant in that. As is Mark Heap and Wilson the dog. Shalom.

The accompanying podcast with the writer is great as well. First 2 podcasts made a boring train journey this morning pass really quickly

I knew a bit about it just from reading and documentaries but it's still just mindblowing that the first course of action on it was to prevent the wider world knowing there was a nuclear disaster happening, rather than actually taking steps to manage it.

Just watched the first two episodes on catch up. Can't remember another 2hrs of tv that has been as tense and gripping as this. Actually found myself pausing it in order to take a break from the stress. Fantastic television!

Pretty accurate, as it turns out.

Those three guys should be household names, as important as landing on the moon. If not more so.

Ukraine and other countries uninhabitable for hundreds of years. That’s arguably worse than the world wars.

Its insane that nuclear reactors were even considered.

Couldn't agree more.  Probably three of the most important men in recent human history, yet that's the first I'd heard about them.  Alexei Ananenko,  Valeri Bezpalov and Boris Baranov.  Three names that should be national heroes all over Europe.  If not for them, pretty much the whole of Eastern and Southern Europe would be fucked.

So are those three men still alive, did they survive their experience or not? Some sources say yes, others - like the one above - say they died immediately afterwards.
