I don't know if "enjoyed" is necessarily the right word for HBO's Chernobyl series. But it certainly had me running the gamut of emotions throughout it's six episodes- horror, disgust, fear, sadness, and awe. Other things in life inspire me to read more about particular historical events but this was the first TV show in a while that has me wanting to do that.

Also, on another note: Good Omens on Amazon Prime. I got about halfway through the first episode with this weird feeling that this felt familiar somehow. And then one of the characters was named and I realized I read (one of?) the book(s) the series was based on. The show doesn't quite live up to the quirkiness of the novel, and I don't feel the need to binge watch it in just a few days. But I'll go back to it and finish it eventually. So I guess that I would rate this one as just OK.
