I binged this series over a weekend while working on Beetle & Byte. It’s a griping historical fiction mini-series that made me realize that I knew and understood virtually nothing about Chernobyl both in how devastating it was and how much worse it could have been for so much of the world.
I most appreciated how the main character, played by Phoebe Waller-Bridge, is a normal and relatable amount of fucked up. Not dramatically extreme, just bad enough to be redeemable and lovable.
I mean, what could I possibly say about the relationship of Villanelle and Eve? That I get it and that it’s also terrifying. There I said something.
