Just started watching this, two episodes in. I remember this actually happening and I've done my research over the years. I've watched loads of urbex footage and played the various games that have Pripyat maps in them. However, this really hits home from a personal, human sacrifice point of view. No CGI, just fantastic acting from a mainly British cast and a real feel for the Soviet period of the time. Hat's off to HBO for creating this and it goes to show how far off British TV is from making quality content.
