      I just finished watching this six episode series. Here is some information from the Wikipedia entry:

      9/11: One Day in America is an American documentary television miniseries directed by Daniel Bogado and produced by Caroline Marsden. The series follows the September 11 attacks through archival footage, eyewitnesses, and survivors.

      The series follows the terrorist attacks through archival footage, eyewitnesses, survivors, with new footage never seen before.

      There is some mature content here so be advised. However, this is one of the best documentaries that I've seen in quite some time. Getting the accounts from the first responders and survivors was gut wrenching at times. There are, also, moments of great joy and pride. Honestly, I teared up at least a half dozen times.

      Excellent production that I recommend.

    2. HBO Chernobyl miniseries discussion

      Warning: this post may contain spoilers

      Thought a thread for this miniseries would be good, as I've only seen discussion of the trailer up here. As of today (16th May) there are two episodes out, and a companion podcast for each (though I've not listened to these yet)
      I just watched both back to back, and I'm blown away. This is some very well made television, and somehow manages to be simultaneously nightmarish, and fully gripping. That this is based on real events is all the more amazing to me, and after watching the revelation about the exploding water tanks in the second episode I'm astonished that the world is as unscathed by this disaster as it is.
