With the events now over and the clean up still ongoing, Legasov has lied to the IAEA in Vienna but he still has a chance to tell the truth at a trial put on to punish Dyatlov, Bryukhanov and Fomin.
I honestly don’t think anything that could happen in this episode could break my heart more then the things we had to see in the episode before.
The destruction of human bodies due to the radiation, the harsh decisions needed to be made and just the amount of people even after the explosion that had to be sacrificed even if their death was not as painful or as soon as those who attended the explosion is horrifying.
Now there is a clean up to be done.
Pripyat has been evacuated, we are now just under or maybe by the time the episode starts just over 2 days from the explosion, Alexei Ananenko, Valeri Bezpalov and Boris Baranov have volunteered to enter the basement of Chernobyl to drain the water and stop a nuclear explosion that would destroy much of Eastern Europe.
This show continues to be one of the most difficult things I’ve ever had to watch but by now I don’t want to stop.
After the explosion what happens?
In the city of Pripyat life goes on for those who weren’t close enough to have ended up with radiation poisoning and are in the hospital.
It is up to the politicians to decide whether their citizens or pride mean more to them.
As always we tend to be a little behind on TV shows coming out as none of us really sit down to watch TV but with people honestly in awe of this series that tells the story during the moments after the Chernobyl explosion we just had to sit down and catch up with it.
I think I’ve said it before but I’m a huge history geek and being English and having to learn about it every single year of my young life, WWII holds a power over me that make documentaries, films, books or just about anything else set during those periods a must see.
This was a film I really wanted to see and never got around to it until it showed up on NowTV. Starring a who’s who of British stars we watch the world around Churchill as he gets thrown into the position of Prime Minister to face Hitler against the wishes of parliament.
Yesterday felt like the opening 30 minutes, or the filler 30 minutes of hour long episode so lets hope this episode manages to make up for that!
