Unbelievable. Many of us have never heard of Chernobyl and the nuclear disaster that history suggests, was also a part of the downfall of the Soviet Union. In five riveting episodes you’ll be transported to April 1986 when an explosion at Chernobyl, a nuclear power plant in Russia caused one of the world’s worst catastrophes. The series details how the Soviet Union tried to downplay the disaster and how many lives were affected by the event. It’s so unbelievably real, that you’ll have to google it just to confirm that such a big event took place in our recent history and you weren’t aware of it. When the series was released people said it was better than Game of Thrones and Chernobyl has now become a tourist attraction.

They were called the Central Park 5, who were forced into false and convoluted confessions and convicted for many years. The episodes chronicles the conviction and the release and the director of the series says it was compiled after many years of research and is “very accurate.”
