WATCH HBO ‘Chernobyl’ (2019) Miniseries — To Recognize The Dangers Of A ‘State’ That Lies.

Watch the trailer on YouTube.

I, of course, had heard it was good. But, I had no idea that it was this good. A trusted friend told me to watch it last week. I listen to him. He is very smart. I am glad I did.


Of course, I knew the basic parameters of the story. Like many of you, I too lived through it — but from afar.

Interesting miniseries.

Though couched as a drama, which, of course, it is — what it really is, is a MORAL TALE.

It sets out to show the dangers of a State (in this case the Soviet Union) that lies.

It has some GREAT lines about the true cost of lying.

One of them, paraphrase because I didn’t get it all is along the lines of: ‘Every lie incurs a debt of truth, and that debt has to be repaid some day‘! WOW.

Great story for NOW — with the COVID-19 upon us.

I watched all 5 episodes in 2.5-days — it is that good (and it isn’t like I spend much time watching TV). What this, however, means is that you can watch it all, easily, on a 7-day HBO FREE trial. SMILE. I did so via Amazon Prime.

But, please try and watch it.

As ever, given that they can’t get anything right — other than overbilling us — they got this wrong too.

They started populating the electronic guide on Saturday — though the Channels were not available till yesterday.

I think that that was phising.
am sure some people hit ‘OK’ on the automatic prompt and inadvertently signed up for HBO, Cinemax etc!

So check your bill next month. You might have signed up without realizing.

But it is FREE, for the week, as of yesterday.

I already recorded one movie last night.

Seen most of them!
