Episode 5: An amazing finale to a brilliant series!



Wow! Makes me glad I have HBO. That was one of the best series of all time!

And according to the series, the three brave men who went under the reactor to open the drain valves all survived, and two are still alive today. That is good to know.

And Valery Lagasov is a true hero. And I never even knew of his existence until this series.

It also confirmed what a lot of people had been speculating. The female scientist was actually an amalgam of several real people to simplify the story telling.

Yes. She was a dramatic device for simplicity.

Yes, this was very clear to me (who lived in this system) pretty early, when she called some high tavarish a shoe factory worker, that this did not happened for sure. The character being a woman itself was suspicious, that she's not real. But there's NO WAY she could get away with that comment without being sent to hard labor to Syberia right away, or any immediate retaliation.
