    Chernobyl

    ★★★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    “Put it on before the radiation gives you a cunt.”

    I’ll tell you one thing - I’ll never use a damn microwave again, that’s for sure! Why risk a total meltdown in my apartment over a bag of popcorn?

    ... so did I learn anything from this science-heavy disaster miniseries? Absolutely not - so whatever you do, don’t promote me to the Politburo. I’ll end up being one of those diabolical Soviets behind a desk who tells off a scientist…

    Suzy finally made good on her 49 Up promise to leave the series. But is she gone for good? She only…

    Aguirre, the Wrath of God

    ★★★★★

    “All the land to our left and all the land to our right now belongs to us.”

    It amazes me how much “hard-earned property" in the West can be traced back to illegitimate proclamations like this. It took no work to look at land and say it is yours, but at the time, no one else was looking. Then later the records got messy, somehow it all got integrated into the capitalist system under your name, and hey, now you…
