And What Else?

My personal analysis.

The award-winning (78 in total) HBO miniseries "Chernobyl" clearly received critical acclaim. But it also had its fair share of blowback from certain select government officials. Also, mixed reaction was received by some others who were apart of the actual Chernobyl disaster on April 26, 1986. Personally, I enjoyed the series.

From a writing perspective, the toughest part of depicting a real-life-story is the narrative itself. As a viewer, it's important to keep in mind the genre. Is it a documentary, or a docudrama? I don't mean to imply that all documentaries are accurate. And I'm not suggesting that dramatization of actual disasters can be completely false, either. What I am saying is this: no one's life is a summation.

The HBO miniseries "Chernobyl" is powerful and thought provoking. It's also a reminder that real lives were affected by the very-real disaster. ~ Nick Runyeard
