Yes, killing off a lot of characters, and the ones remaining don't have enough charisma to carry the show.

It's actually insanely good. I'd heard it was good, waiting til it was finished to watch in one go. My god it was better than I ever imagined.

No wonder GoT s8 was pretty poor, they put all their good writing staff at HBO to Chernobyl. Probably the best show I've watched in years.

Chernobyl...
Wow...
It's been a long time since I've seen something that completely justified all the hype. It even surpassed all my expectations.
Absolutely fucking brilliant.

 
The scene where the guy goes up on the roof to look down on the exposed core... The look of sheer terror on his face as he turns around... The realization that he's already dead just from that one single look...
Incredible

This is why I prefer documentaries

so, should watch When They See Us, eh? Versace, Manhunt and OJ make me positive about it but still a bit iffy for some reason. (maybe cause of Fruitvale Station was overdramatized)

Yeah, same here.
I've seen The Central Park Five documentary. I liked it. Not really interested in a TV series of it.
Chernobyl is an exception because I had never bothered to watch any of the documentaries. Would've probably not watched the TV series either if it wasn't shoved at my face everywhere. But I liked it as well, although it was disappointing(but expected) that it wasn't in Russian. The uppity British accents in particular took me away from the settings. I read that the director initially wanted Slavic accents, but changed his mind after a few scenes.

Coogler made Fruitvale Station to make Oscar Grant seem like a better person than what the facts showed.

Skipping slavic accent really helped, it's just parody when they go for Russian accents. English didn't bother me a bit (thanks to non-yankee accents/casting?), even with Russian announcements and poems that could've broken the rythm.

But the CP5 series hype looks good too ... series can unveil different layers.

The actor that played Korey Wise did an amazing job.
His acting makes you really feel for him. I just felt sad and angry during the whole episode for what he went through. It's the best episode by far.
The series is definitely worth a watch, but the hype is a bit unjustified imo.
