There are surely lots of drama series fans all around the world. The most audience likes the dragon flying around, but most audiences don’t cover the overall audience base. The fan of dragon flying episodes is surely less than that of real-life nuclear accidents.
The experience of being a part of a nuclear accident through great direction and acting is higher in comparison to that of hypothetical dragons flying everywhere.
HBO Chernobyl has made a big leap surpassing the great likes of Games Of Thrones, Breaking Bad, Planet Earth 2. Not only on IMDB but also rotten tomatoes rate it way higher with 96% rating.
According to Deadline, the success of the show can be well understood by the record 1.7 million cumulative audiences in the first episode. The rave reviews about the show are absolutely gripping the audience.
The Big Names Review
When writing for BBC, Will Gompertz gave it 5 stars and stated;
To say Sky/HBO’s new mini-series Chernobyl is thought-provoking would be like describing Usain Bolt as quite a fast runner, or the water under the Antarctic sea ice as a bit chilly. “This is the TV that doesn’t just get you thinking, it stops you sleeping.”
Not only one of the editor of BBC but the famous Irish Independent also gave it a 5 star and stated that
No piece of dramatized non-fiction has ever felt this authentic’.
The praises of the show are from different fields as well. Sky’s director of program Zai Bennett adds the icing on the cake, expressing that
“This jaw-dropping Sky Original is gripping viewers across the UK and beyond for good reason – the writing and production are second to none, and the story is both fascinating and utterly tragic. This is must-watch TV, and we’re delighted that audiences are enjoying it as much as we are.”
The best reviews or the best critic is surely the audience who likes or dislikes the show. The audience voting and praises surely make HBO Chernobyl the best-rated Tv show. So, for the readers, we have handpicked some tweets to enjoy as well.

HBO Chernobyl Cast and Crew
The make and break of a series are highly into the acting and direction team’s hands. Craig Mazin is the writer of the show who has done great work of precision in it.
However, the director is Johan Renck, who has done devastatingly unreal work and made the nerve-wracking thriller to a somewhat knowable ending.
The cast, however, includes the likes of the great artist here.
Jared Francis Harris is a British actor known for the role of Lance Pryce in Tv series Madmen. The British actor plays the role of Valery Legasov.
Legasov is a leading Soviet Nuclear physicist who is part of a Chernobyl responsive team. The actor in the series is the first to receive the scope of the unparalleled disaster.
However, the man’s main role is to keep in control of the after-effects of the radiation and provide the best suggestion to his partner. The suggestion is basically related to positive outcomes in development activities.
One of the most talented actors who is well known to play varied roles is Stellan Skarsgard. Most of the readers may be aware of Stellan’s roles in the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, Goodwill hunting, Thor, and many more as well.
Stellan plays the role of Boris Shcherbina. Boris is the Soviet Deputy prime minister who is assigned by the Kremlin to lead the government commission on Chernobyl.
The actor is one of those who accompany Jared in the testing Chernobyl hours. The man tries to suppress the truth in order to protect the nation’s good interest as well.
One of the leading female ladies in this terrifying series is Emily Watson. The English actress was nominated for the Academy Awards for the best actress for the debut movie Breaking the waves.
In the HBO Chernobyl, the lady plays the role of Ulana Khomyuk. Emily is a Soviet nuclear physicist who is committed to solving the mystery in the Chernobyl accident.
The best narration that can be expected from Emily is performed with great ease. Most readers may not be aware, but Ulana plays the common role of all the scientists who did their bit to bring the truth out.
The artist’s other commendable roles can be notably listed as Jessie Buckley, Paul Ritter, Adam Nagaitis, Laura Elphinstone, and many others.
The success of the series surely wasn’t possible if, along with the lead, the supporting actors didn’t do well. The beautiful depiction and the up to mark acting surely helps the cause of being rated at the top.
