Watched it. Harris, Skarsgård and Watson did spectacular jobs with their rolls.

It was amazing, learned a little bit I hadn't read about before. The ending was absolutely amazing with him giving his speech in the courtroom, gave me chills.

Me to. Especially his red/blue card explanation kind of helped with the why/how. But that is one theory they presented, there are others.

But what's up with paint in Russia?

Pripyat was built to support Chernobyl. Built at the same time. Chernobyl was commissioned in 1977. The accident occurred in 1982.

Apparently Russian paint starts pealing and falling off the walls in large chunks only a few years after application.

I remember a guy from Russia describing to me once how it took 4 guys a week to paint his tiny Russian apartment. When he had his condo here in the US painted, it was one guy and he did it in a day. :?

The Dog thing was ... sad.

I would have walked my dogs 100 miles if they wouldn't let me on the bus.
Dogs weren't allowed on the buses during Katrina evac IIRC.
If you have dogs you care about, live in a city, and have no personal transportation, you might want to prep a doggo evac plan.

Amazing that 2 of the 3 guys that drained the sub basement are still alive today.

Remember many of the building were just left, clothes still hanging, windows open, etc. Moisture can do a lot of damage. I mean even looking at some of the buildings they are starting to collapse. I cant help but think maybe the amount of radiation perhaps weakened even the buildings?

Yes, but you're talking about how it looks now in Pripyat?
I'm talking about how it looked in 1986 at the time of the accident in Pripyat, Chernobyl, and all the other sets that were locations for scenes in the Mini-Series. most sets had pealing paint. Re-watch the first episode, or any that had a flashback to before the accident. Even during the accident at the hospital. Look at the walls. In the movie the paint is pealing in 1986. IRL Most of those buildings were not even built and painted before 1970.
I've seen what it looks like now, some 30 odd years later. Why did the producers think it looked like that when the buildings were only 7-15 years old and not exposed to anything but communism?
