I liked them displaying the Chernakov Radiation as a blue pillar of light. It was the little things that impressed me. Sure there was some artistic licence, but it was needed in the grand scheme of things.

I actually think that was realistic. An open melting unregulated reactor would be spilling all sorts of neutrons into the air, and Chernekov Radiation would result in a blue glow.

Also:

HBO’s ‘Chernobyl’ Is Now the Top-Rated TV Show on IMDb

It is ahead of:

AMC's "Breaking Bad" (9.5)
BBC's "Planet Earth II" (9.5)
HBO's "Band of Brothers" (9.5)
BBC's "Planet Earth" (9.4)
HBO's "Game of Thrones" (9.3)
HBO's "The Wire" (9.2)

Man, Band of Brothers is the best show ever made. I'll have to watch Chernobyl now.

Watching Chernobyl now, second episode, and I'm immediately struck by something I discovered working long ago.

If a company works on a hierarchy where people are unable to question, debate, or down right prove wrong those above them, something will ultimately go wrong. The industry determines the damage.

The nuclear scientists being dismissed by the Soviet leader "all of this based on the description of a rock" is a perfect example. In an environment where you won't be immediately punished, the appropriate response is "Why did he have burns on his hand from a fucking rock, you god damn moron"

Also, if a company hires people who don't question themselves, and don't rely on the expertise of the people around them, they will fail.

I see it every day. :lol:

Not really a TV show, but online. A show called "You Can't Ask That". It asks people with disabilities about how they cope, and the problems they face.

I can see now how someone with a disability gets pissed off when you call them 'a hero'.

The new Swamp Thing isn't half bad.

Nice surprise.

The 3rd season of Jessica Jones is not bad. Better than the last one anyway. Not up to the Standard of the classic that was Season 1 but what is?

I'm about halfway through Season 3 now. It's kind of a Jessica versus Dexter thing so far.

My favourite comedy; "Cops".

Ok, protip - if you are rolling around selling meth, and you've got your little baggies of meth and your little scale all locked in your glove box - do NOT put business cards with your name on them in there too.

And most definitely STOP at stop signs. :lol:

And in the future: [drool]
