Chernobyl HBO series poster.

This five-part miniseries scared me. I had trouble sleeping, and often went to bed with the light on for long periods of time. While I knew a little of what happened in the late ’80s with the faulty reactor, I did not know everything. While there are flaws to the show–like representing radiation as though it were a virus–the feel of the miniseries is powerful, thought-provoking, and the stuff of nightmares.
