    1, 2 and 3 were great. 4 was * and 5 was OK. Good show but way over hyped

    Just watched the final episode, one of the best shows I’ve watched and * scary. They done very well to fit everything into 5 episodes and summarise it that well.

    Definitely overhyped.

    I actually preferred the last two episodes to the first 3. Thought they were more hard hitting. The scene on the roof when they are removing the grafite is tense as *.

    Thought it was all over after I skipped it, next minute puppies show up and I thought where was the need to put puppies in it, if anything show a dog that’s wild trying to attack you, good show but showed things I didn’t even know about it

    It was radiation not rabies so there were no wild dogs to show

    After all is said and done and once the dust settles this will be a classic.

    Only show that I think I can compare this against would be Band of Brothers - which was the much better show and over 18 years its held up great (minus the cgi in ep1).

    Excellent show, I visit Ukraine regularly so it has some resonance with me, heres another good wildlife show about the return of wild wolves to Chernobyl

    I watched the first 4 in a row about 10 days ago and just finished the 5th episode there just now.

    The last episode is the best episode of anything i've ever seen before, I wasnt really even going to watch it either as I thought it was basically done but it was a masterpiece. It could probably stand on it's on as a film.

    Just finished watching this. Utterly staggering stuff. Can't believe the official death toll was 31.

    Great watch I was pretty clued up with the whole Chernobyl thing before hand and I think they hit the nail on the head. Really good from the beginning but particularly the start of the first and the final courtroom scenes were the best for me .

    Went onto eBay and bought one of they liquidation medals . More * to stick in my collection of random *

    The rooftop scene is one of the most tense moments i've ever felt watching a show. Staggering
