Chernobyl S1E4 "The Happiness of All Mankind"
Everything about this series is just sooo good!
In real life the robot wasn't a police robot, it was one used in a nuclear reactor to refuel the reactor. But because of its design, its guidance circuitry was under the body of the robot. This would not be a problem in its regular operation inside a nuclear power plant but on the roof of the exploded plant most of the debris was radioactive and that radiation ate through the robot's exposed conrol circuitry and made it inoperable. So unfortunately it did not work long and had to be abandoned.
Calling customer service be like:
Everybody's a gangster until Boris yells "I DON'T GIVE A F*CK"
That "I don't give a fuck!!!" is legendary
Those who preach communism never had to deal with with communist bureaucracy before 😂😂😂
I love how calm Legasov is, he's somewhere between "I told you" and "Boris is acting like how i feel about this bs from the beginning" and just chills, making peace with the world as he knows they are both slowly dying
Scherbinas arc in the series was the best. Imagine devoting your life to a Party, and then when you lay down your life to clean up their mistake, they’re too busy making themselves look good to make your sacrifice worthwhile.
If the Soviets had given the Germans the actual 15 000 roentgen reading could they have built a robot that can work?
Imagine the frustration when trying to do your job and save lives only to have your superiors sabotage your efforts to protect themselves followed by holding you accountable.
I like to imagine what the guy on the other line is saying "you'll be shot for this". " I don't give a F***" (Boris)
In the USSR there are two sets of books - the real numbers and the propaganda numbers - like in fraudulent accounting.

just rewatched this and I didn't appreciate this guys acting as much as I should've when this came out
That last line is just brilliant.
We need a new phone.
