I know this will just get more terrifying as it goes, but this show is just beautifully done. In a harrowing way, of course.

I want to listen to songs from Thom Yorke's first solo album after each episode.

Yeah, I’ve been thinking about it all day. I’m watching The Americans simultaneously, and it’s a good segue.

I haven't watched the third ep yet. Tonight, hopefully. Was there another podcast for it?

Anyway...Chernobyl. I'm a fan already.

Yeah, I am excited. There are certain parts of the story that I've read about that I'm very excited to see depicted. I won't spoil any of them, but I will mention them here when/if they come up.

Unlikely that we would see a Twin Peaks: The Return, Part 8 caliber event in this mini series, but I'm still crossing my fingers for something like that.

Hey, I was close-ish.

The creator of the series, Craig Mazin, has an incredibly interesting resume. He is credited as writing 2 of the "Scary Movie" movies, 2 of the "Hangover" movies, and the currently-filming "Charlie's Angels" reboot. Then there's Chernobyl. What a world.

I refer you to Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman.

I appreciated that they waited for a half hour before implicitly blaming Lenin for the cover-up.
