Picture Me Dead
Another hard truth about series that deal with death is that they tend to be difficult to watch.

Extremely difficult. Sometimes we understand that from the start and nevertheless, the horror creeps up on you. Distancing oneself from unimaginable tragedy is simple enough when one lives far away.
In this miniseries, writer Craig Mazin and director Johan Renck place the viewer in the middle of it, starting at the moment of the explosion itself. The truly horrifying scenes, however, show people gathered on a bridge nearby, staring at the pillar of light splitting the sky above the plant as their children play in radioactive ash falling like snowflakes from the sky. This happens in the first episode of a five-part miniseries, and in that moment we know that most if not all of these folks are condemned to die.
And this story is vital enough to make one hope the world has a lot of tough viewers.

Relatively speaking, this is a minor quibble about a series that does its best to condense the retelling of a massive disaster into a format people can connect with. When confronted by the truth delivered by knowledgeable scientists, politicians too invested in maintaining power and its trappings dismiss the threat, more concerned about appearances than hundreds of thousands of lives.
And in watching those scenes, one can only hope we never witness a sequel to this in our lifetimes. Anyway, at this point anything can happen, including nothing at all. Three episodes left! Follow her on Twitter: McTelevision.
