HBO's 'Chernobyl' Is The Best Thing On TV Right Now And These Tweets Prove It

In 1986, Chernobyl was hit with a major nuclear reactor disaster.

So, HBO, being HBO, decided to make a mini-series out of it. And good for them, because people are obsessed with it.

The show follows the true story of a disaster in the Ukraine.


Chernobyl was the victim of a nuclear reactor disaster.

It follows the terrible story in its entirety.

The show has a 9.5 rating on IMDb.


That's higher than both Breaking Bad and Game of Thrones!

This show has demolished its competition.

It stars some amazing actors and actresses.


Among them are Stellan SkarsgÄrd, Jared Harris, and Emily Watson.

The performances in the show are outstanding, to say the least.

But be warned if you haven't watched it yet.


There are some extremely gruesome and terrifying scenes.

You might be used to it, but it really hits deeper when you know this actually happened to people.

This review from Collider says it best.


"Chernobyl plays out in a linear narrative that makes you feel trapped inside a nightmare," says Allison Keene in their review.

People are freaking out about it.

People love it.

Fans of the show have taken to social media to show their love. It's been trending since it came out.

Personally, I can't watch anything that has an animal suffering in it.

Is it just me? It can't be, right?

I know it adds to the realism but that doesn't make it any easier to watch.

HBO fans are happy to have something new to watch.

Many people were disappointed with the end of Game of Thrones so they're happy to move on.
