Oh dear god no...
Video leaked featuring the Nilfgaardian troops:



The emperor is going to be pissed when he sees they went out without ironing them :lol:

This is going to be terrible, isn't it?
What da fuck is that meant to be?! It's not even close to looking like Nilfgaardian armour. :?

At least they got the colour right I suppose.

Yes !

This looks great. A prequel that looks good and could actually be faithful.

I'm so unsure about this. The original movie is one of my all time favourites. It really freaked me out as a kid and even now when I rewatch it still has this whole weird dreamlike feeling.

last night I started Chernobyl

Holy shit !!!!!!!!!!!!

I have not seen anything as frightening as this since Edge Of Darkness or Threads. Makes me 100% back power from natural resources.

On IMDB it is getting 9.7 :shock:

Yeah I need to watch it fully. I've seen the clip of when the workers look into the exposed core and even that was damn scary. Not sure if I could handle the rest. :lol:

That's… not the message you should be taking from this. Soviet-era reactors are nothing like modern ones.

And yet the accidents proved the relative safety, not relative danger, of nuclear energy. Nobody died from radiation at Three Mile Island or Fukushima, and fewer than 50 died died from Chernobyl in the 30 years since the accident.

(Though since this was written, the first radiation-related death was recorded)

Also, this:

Accidents feature heavily in the news, but there's only ever been those 3 big ones, right?
The US, where nearly 20 percent of electricity comes from 99 nuclear plants, uses uranium. Older reactors—which is every reactor in the US, including Watts Bar Unit 2—use electric pumps to move water through the system. The Fukushima disaster showed what happens it you have pumps but no power to use them. Newer generations rely on gravity instead, draining cooling water from elevated storage tanks to send it through the reactor core.
Source

So, we're learning. It would be wonderful if the world could go renewable-only, but until we find a decent way to store that power for when the sun isn't shining and the wind isn't blowing, we're going to need something else to bridge those gaps.

Chernobyl was quite excellent throughout. I felt the only misstep was having the fictional lady testify. I feel like even if she was real she made her intentions clear enough that they would never in a million years allow her to speak in such a semi public forum. Other than that though, great stuff.
I used to be eVoL but I got better.
I like everything now.
