WATCH HBO ‘Chernobyl’ (2019) Miniseries — To Recognize The Dangers Of A ‘State’ That Lies.

by Anura Guruge


Click for Amazon Prime listing.


Watch the trailer on YouTube.


I, of course, had heard it was good. But, I had no idea that it was this good. A trusted friend told me to watch it last week. I listen to him. He is very smart. I am glad I did.

WOW.

Of course, I knew the basic parameters of the story. Like many of you, I too lived through it — but from afar.

Interesting miniseries.

Though couched as a drama, which, of course, it is — what it really is, is a MORAL TALE.

It sets out to show the dangers of a State (in this case the Soviet Union) that lies.

It has some GREAT lines about the true cost of lying.

One of them, paraphrase because I didn’t get it all is along the lines of: ‘Every lie incurs a debt of truth, and that debt has to be repaid some day‘! WOW.

Great story for NOW — with the COVID-19 upon us.

I watched all 5 episodes in 2.5-days — it is that good (and it isn’t like I spend much time watching TV). What this, however, means is that you can watch it all, easily, on a 7-day HBO FREE trial. SMILE. I did so via Amazon Prime.

But, please try and watch it.

Those were the days. Battleships up the creek.

Yes, yes, Trump is talking about ‘Hospital Ships’ — but neither of them are currently READY!

P.S., These are NOT British warships. SMILE. ‘Falls River’, Massachusetts.

Lot to be said in favor of my approach. For a start, it is way inline with the CDC guidelines for ‘social distancing’.

I am also trying to DROWN the damn germs.

Might not work for all of you, but it works for I.

P.S., Wrong color. I am black, not white. SMILE.

Sri Lanka, With A Population Of 22 Million, Only Still Has 72 Confirmed COVID-19 Cases (As Of 3/20/2020).

The keyword here is ‘confirmed’. As in the US, testing is probably a bottleneck. They seem to have got their infections from folks arriving from Italy.

I was just curious. I will keep an eye to see what happens to the numbers.
