    Ghostbusters - the new one. I adore them all-cannot pass one on tv anymore than I can pass up an Alien starting Sigourney.

    Chernobyl from HBO on Sky Atlantic. It's very chilling to watch. With both the Challenger and Chernobyl disasters happening in 1986, it was not a good year for preserving faith in dumb humans always knowing the right thing to do when in charge of technology.

    I too, just watched the first episode of the mini-series. Chilling is an understatement, it's down right disturbing. The manager was a complete tool, especially when two different people specifically told him that they looked directly into the core of the reactor. The most disturbing thing for me was, while watching, realizing all the characters that they've introduced and that you have a vested interest in ..... will be 'dead' in hours or days ...... :eek:

    Excellent show, highly recommend it to everyone...

    The incompetence of the manager (who survived and got 10 years in a gulag as a convenient scapegoat) didn't stop with him. It went all the way up the system where such a catastrophic failure could not be admitted to be possible in the perfect socialist utopia. Not that such abnegation of reality can't also take place in capitalist systems although the motivation is usually to avoid blame, minimise financial penalties and/or avoid bad publicity. How many bankers went to jail following the global banking scandal of 10 or so years ago? A few retired early with cushy parachutes and one in the UK lost his knighthood. The governments bailed out the banks and we're still paying for that. No lessons were learned.

    Watched Big Bang Theory tonight. I actually got a bit misty-eyed over that scene where Leonard confronts his mom.

    Finished the 4th season of Lucifer. It was excellent. The perfect ending too considering Netflix cancels everything.

    Only one HUGE issue I have with the finale episode.

    I'm watching In the Dark on The CW. And despite the saturation advertising during the Arrowverse shows, which successfully piqued my interest, I feel like I'm the only one?

    Still watching Chernobyl -- still extremely bleak but riveting. it makes me think western governments also must have had a vested interest in covering up just how bad the situation was back in 1986. Not sure how many people in the west would willingly sacrifice their lives to save millions of others like the plant workers in the Ukraine did. There were a couple of technical errors in the script but nothing major.
