    It’s not like I hate this show but this situation with IMDb is laughable.

    But also quite irrelevant in the grand scheme of things, not really a ‘situation’.

    This IMDb thing is weird because what could be motivating it? That leads me to believe that people simply do love the show. But also why? I mean, it is good, but a lot of things have been good. Thirty thousand votes is not nothing either; that is almost fifty percent more than Barry has. This is going to be a tight race between Chernobyl and When They See Us.

    It was the smallest possible increase, but the show can still say that it has built its audience each week and it will be cool if that continues in the final two weeks. I finished Chernobyl last night. The show overall is good, but the dialogue is not the sharpest, albeit never embarrassing. The ending intertitles are tonally inconsistent. The finale clinches the nomination for Jared Harris, not because it is a tour de force of acting, but because of the role of his character and sympathy that that will generate. Especially in the finale, it is clear how the trio of Harris, Stellan Skarsgård and Emily Watson are the core of the show, so it could be very easy for all three of them to get nominated. Skarsgård also gets a tender scene with Harris in the finale.

    So many people I know have been raving about this! I never would’ve guess it. I’ll have to check it out now. And since it’s a hit with viewers do critics, I don’t see how this miss now. Points for this proving my initial thoughts wrong. I guess there is still a lace for these projects in the modern TV landscape and HBO is still that girl.

    I started, but I don’t really like story driven series, I’d certainly like it more if it was driven by a character… I stopped at ep2.

    u could’ve just looked at the wiki and see there’s no lead actress in this before u started the series.

    My favorite series ever isn’t driven by a female character. (BrBa… ) I just happen to love these two… besides, these are top notch, your Scarlett can’t never!

    Finally watching this (because what better way to spend a long holiday weekend than by watching a story about a nuclear disaster and mismanagement). The first episode I didn’t follow as well for some reason. But I’m on episode 2 right now and WOWOWOWOW. Jared Harris and Stellan Skarsgard are amazing. Emily Watson has always been a favorite of mine so I was thrilled to see her (so far) limited scenes, in which she was of course great. With HBO and importance of the subject behind it, I can easily see this winning big at the Emmys.

    But a question for y’all, what are your thoughts on the performers using their normal accents and not a Soviet/Russian/Ukranian/Belorussian/etc. accent?

    I just watched episode 3. Amazing series! So raw, so powerful. Just the taught that this is not fiction, that it happened is very devastating.

    This should be the frontrunner for Limited Series not Donnamora.

    I have no problem with it. It works well.

    Same here Emil. I think it allows actors to focus on the script and emotions instead of trying not to sound like Boris and Natasha from Bullwinkle. I think it was a good choice and wish more would do it.
