How many of you bought an HBO subscription just to watch Game of Thrones? If you, like many others, bought access to the online streaming platform just to get your GoT fix, you might already have cancelled your subscription.\nThose of you who haven't cancelled yet: don't. And those of you who have need to re-purchase a subscription right away so that you can watch Chernobyl.\nThe show, which follows the story of the biggest nuclear disaster in human history, is haunting and impossible to stop watching.\nThe show, a five-part miniseries, looks at the fallout of the fire at the Chernobyl power plant. It's dreary and grey and, as a critic at Decider put it, "no episode of Chernobyl has ever made me feel better."\nWatched #Chernobyl on #HBO last night and I must say, seeing that much denial by head positions even with scientist warning them; gave me a similar feeling of what I see with the whole climate change debate going on today. Hmmm— MrMikahT (@MikahMr) June 3, 2019\nFrom corrupt Soviet leaders attempting to hide the disaster from the rest of the world, to a pregnant woman caring for her dying husband, a firefighter who gave his life to fight the blaze, the show will make you feel sick to your stomach.\nYou can watch the trailer above.\nREAD ALSO: Videos Of Confirmed Tornado Tearing Through Ontario And Quebec This Weekend\nAnd yet, despite its dismally dark tone, it's impossible to put down. And perhaps this is because the show is so true to real life. Business Insider fact-checked the series to satisfy your curiosity.\nLiterally the Soviet government in the first episode of #Chernobyl pic.twitter.com/MrxiLCQVf1— Matt Barr (@MattBarr_) June 3, 2019\nYes, the events are dramatized, but the producers wanted to stay true to lived events. The true, gritty and very human nature of people's reactions to an event so terrible it was impossible to grasp is engrossing.\nView this post on Instagram Mondays at 9:00pm on @HBO. #chernobyl #hbo #chernobylhbo #chernobyltvshow A post shared by Chernobyl HBO (@chernobyltvshow) on May 29, 2019 at 11:26pm PDT\nThe superb acting and appropriately dark, thrilling music serve the show well.\nChernobyl is not for the faint of heart. It's a horrific, painful tribute to those heroes who sacrificed their lives to save others, and nearly went unsung.\nIf you haven’t started watching Chernobyl on HBO, I highly recommend it. In 2014, I went into the exclusion zone. It was one of the most surreal experiences of my life. pic.twitter.com/8MS0oDAkPT— Andrew Kimmel (@andrewkimmel) June 3, 2019\nIn the era of searching for new sources of renewable energy and the astounding number of power plants still in use, it's a chilling reminder of a disaster that could have affected us all.\nTo watch the show in Canada, you'll need a Crave.ca subscription, which you can sign up for here.\nNot sure if Crave is worth it?
