‘Chernobyl’ beats ‘Game of Thrones’ to become IMDB’s highest rating show

Like with Game Of Thrones, the only (legal) way to watch Chernobyl is via Foxtel.

If you happen to be curious about which other shows occupy the top 10, we've gone ahead and rounded them up. The show that revolves around the tragic Chernobyl disaster in Ukraine highlights the efforts taken by men and women to lessen and lighten its overall impact.

HBO and Sky Atlantic collaborated on distributing this new series that documents the events that lead up to the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant meltdown of 1986.

If one were to ask random people what is the best show ever, a lot would mention Breaking Bad or Game of Thrones. The second and third episodes both reached over a million viewers, which is pretty awesome, and it's presumed that even more people are tuning in after the fact via HBO Go and HBO Now.

The HBO miniseries consists of just five episodes.

The Crown star Jared Harris plays physicist Valery Legasov, a member of the response team, with Emily Watson as fellow scientist Ulana Khomyuk.

The show is aired on the HBO channel at 9 PM every Monday.

Chernobyl Episode 5 debuts Monday night (June 3) at 9:00 p.m. ET.

Nope. But you can stream past episodes on HBO GO or Prime Video (with the HBO add-on). Over at Rotten Tomatoes, the HBO drama has locked down a 96% Fresh rating after 48 critical reviews, with an average rating of 8.83 out of 10.

The next week episode will not be the type of episode that we have been watching, although we have been through three episodes, and the fourth one would be released in some hours. The science and history of the incident is so fascinating (and at times, appalling) that the show can afford to keep its pacing slow without losing any of its dramatic intensity.
