    HBO's Chernobyl is quite intense and disturbing.

    "As we look forward to (or perhaps just brace for) Sunday's Game of Thrones finale, thousands of fans have already thrown in the towel on the showrunners' version of Season 8 and are demanding HBO give someone else have a shot at bringing the series to a satisfying conclusion.

    "More than 16,000 people have now signed an unlikely, fantastical Change.org petition demanding a remake of the final season with someone else holding the keys to the adaptation of George R.R. Martin's still-unfinished A Song of Ice and Fire series."

    Link here.

    Tonight, GOT is over. And given the quality of the final season, a good thing that is.

    Watched the first part of Chernobyl on HBO. Tense and well-done. A true nightmare for the people there.

    George Clooney's version of Catch-22. It's quite painful to watch one of my favorite novels (I taught in AP English for 15 years, so I practically have it memorized!) be so mercilessly butchered. I'm only enduring it because my wife is a big Clooney fan.

    This is a truly gripping show, even though we know what happened. More terrifying than a horror movie.

    The Hot Zone on the National Geographic channel, which begins this Sunday, should make a lovely companion!

    Curious about a few new series coming up soon. Interested in Good Omens on Amazon, with David Tennant. Also curious what the new Luther series will be like.

    Game of Thrones Tapestry

    I saw this on BBC news. I never watched Game of Thrones, and I have no intention of doing so. But this tapestry I find interesting. It's a real tapestry. I'll let you look up more information. I think it's on display in Belfast.

    Our Planet (Netflix)

    Beautiful, as always, but a bit depressing as well.

    Started Sneaky Pete tonight. This is a surprisingly good show (the first episode at least) – clever, great writing, complex plot, interesting characters, a good combination of drama and humor. Co-produced by Bryan Cranston, who also appears in a secondary role as a major gangster.

    Little or no foul language, minimum of violence, but not really a comedy either. The reviews are very good and I agree so far! A keeper I think.

    I know that some here have been watching the miniseries Chernobyl. It has evidently been very popular in Russia, earning a 9.1 rating on Russian ratngs service Kinopoisk. “Izvestia newspaper declared it a more 'realistic' portrayal of the era than most Russian films manage. There's also admiration of how the series conveys the heroism of ordinary people.”

    So – Russia is producing its own Chernobyl miniseries. The Chernobyl plant has been infiltrated by agents of American intelligence agencies…

    Added: Just watched the final episode of Chernobyl. A strong ending! Well done. Too bad those GoT people just let things fizzle out.

    I was reading up today on the Chernobyl incident and was quite amazed at how accurate the miniseries was. Shows like this don't come around often.
