WOW!

I can’t tell you how well this has been put together. Bloody brilliant. I am in awe.

Brand new. This has to set the bar for future documentaries of this genre. Not sure how they got all these people to talk.

Did NOT know this ‘story’. Quite the story.

Very watchable. I have really enjoyed it. They had me hooked 5-minutes into it.

Yes, I recommend it — highly.

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

by Anura Guruge


Click for Amazon Prime listing.


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.

WOW.

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.

HBO “The Night Of” Miniseries Proved To Be Outstanding.

by Anura Guruge


Click here to access the HBO Homepage for this 8-part series.

0-17


We ‘just’ finished watching episode 8, the last, which aired on Sunday, August 28, 2016.

I was, as I shared with you, hooked after the first episode — though, in general, miniseries do not appeal to me. But this was the exception.

It was riveting, educational, thought-provoking and exciting.

You really should try to watch it. I am sure it is available online. HBO, of course, will show reruns.
