    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.

    Halfway through the second season of Sneaky Pete. This is without a doubt the most complicated multi-plot series I've ever seen, and one of the most fun.

    I've started binge watching Game of Thrones from the start. Again. Fourth time over the years, I think. I'm watching the Battle of Blackwater right now (2.7).

    Why do you torture yourself so? Some people talk about series with disappointing finales. This one had a disappointing final 2-3 seasons.

    Only the final GoT season was ultimately disappointing to me. I still enjoyed seasons 6 & 7 a lot. And parts of season 8.
    I'm certainly not going to watch it again anytime soon, if ever. It was a great ride while it lasted, most of the time... but the conclusion.... meh. I realize it was hard to bring all of that to a satisfying conclusion, but this was just too frustrating after 7 seasons of build-up.

    I have no issues with the general story lines of seasons 6-8, including the major arc conclusions. Execution (the script) could have been better in lots of places, but there was still a lot to enjoy. Seasons 1-5 are still of an amazing high standard. And the acting (and the music, and the special effects) throughout has been fantastic.
