A series to remember. For the good of mankind.

“Chernobyl” (HBO)

It’s been over a year since the premiere of HBO’s Chernobyl, and in that time, I haven’t been able to shake this show. I’ve watched it three times now — beginning to end. It has haunted my memory and made me think more than any other story has in recent years.

Nobody was expecting this mini-series to become, alongside Game of Thrones, the most talked-about show of 2019. Actually, it’s possible that the underwhelming end to Thrones paved the way for Chernobyl to become the year’s most memorable series. Here’s why I found it so special.
