Thanks @EddScott will reply to your trust later
Watched Ep 02 last night and agree with most, on how well it's done.
Not sure what the problem is over the British accents, as any attempt at Ukrainian accents would just be met with equal criticism. I assume Ukranian actors would have their pronunciation of English ripped into just as if they spoke Ukranian over subtitles?
Can't please everyone.
What I do find amusing is how the wife cannot pronounce Prypiat, though. She keeps calling it Pretty-Pat!!
I wouldn't want Ukraine actors speaking English. I'd happily accept the series fully subtitled but i'm used to the English speakers after episode 2. It works well enough.
I found the English accents a little jarring but you forget them once it really gets going.
That was fantastic! I loved that.
I watched the first episode last night. It was decent but not too much happened. Shocked by how in denial they were! Looking forward to watching more tonight. It feels quite low budget for HBO, or is that just me?
Just listened to them both, very good. They're on iTunes as well.
Just watched the first 2 episodes and OMG, so tense watching, absolutely 10/10. Haven't been this excited for a very long time. So looking forward to the next 3 episodes. It's crazy to see what radiation does and how quickly it can kill and what sort of disaster this could have been for the Europe.
Absolutely love this so far and surprisingly enough, so does my wife..
A tad off topic, but can anyone recommend other shows with a similar atmosphere/tone?
Wow what an end to the 2nd episode. That was absolutely immense.
Can’t wait for the next episode but what a heartbreaking story. The amount of wilful ignorance and not taking advice by the leaders was simply mind boggling.
2nd episode was one of the best things I have watched this year, just great.
Have you watched Deutschland 83? I thought it was brilliant.
Agreed. Every aspect of it is absolutely fantastic.
Glad I finally watched ep2 and can venture into this thread. What great TV.
As mentioned above The Night Of is pretty damn good and very dark, slow (in a good way).
Terrible isn't it. It's almost comical when they are talking about stuff; the amount of bureaucracy and 'deputy secretary to the blah blah' and 'second chairman' etc. and no one wanting to speak out of turn.
Really enjoying this show, can't wait for the next episode.
Thanks guys, I'll try these two.
I suppose there's not really a lot that they needed to spend money on, it's not a series that needs any real fancy special effects or anything.
Oh I agree but even compared to things like Night Of, The Wire and Sopranos it feels a bit light on the money.
Not an issue though, enjoying it! Is the third episode out today?
So I've read a lot of recommendations for 'Threads' over on Reddit which is supposed to be very good. Not seen it myself though. Might have to check it out...
It's the type of film you only watch once. Fascinating but very very grim.
I think it will be available to watch from tomorrow, NowTV says that anyway.
