It's HBO, of course it's going to be cinematically good. The problem is what it depicts and how. It is utter schlock in that regard. Lies, lies and more lies about "muh evul soviets and their shitty reactors and stupid people living oppressed and ignorant".
It's irritating as fuck just for the anti-sovietism, and outright LIES about the majority of details and many events. The only commendation I can give it is as an effective piece of anti-communist and anti-nuclear propaganda that has solidly scared a large portion of the West into being scared of nuclear energy and commies again.

Do you have good resources on the events of Chernobyl? I'm always afraid to find only western propaganda.

Yes, but give me a few days so I can make an effort-post comp on the subject. It'll be better that way. While you're waiting however I provide you with a fairly decent breakdown of the technical lies of Chernobyl from a Western scientist (still biased of course).
And if you can read/understand Russian, these Reviews by Russian critics are VERY elucidating.

I can't say anything about other sources but Puchkov is an outdated grifter from the 00s Russian Internet who got famous by making """funny"""" dubs of movies, and then started posting shitty but extremely pretentious political and sociological takes on his blog
by the way, his blog is called oper.ru because he's a former "police operative", i.e. a fucking cop

Given that he's tech savvy, well aware of current events, well read and is very popular today, you're wrong.

Fuck off wrecker,
1) He served during the transition from Militsiya of the USSR to the Politsiya of the Russian Federation
2) His experiences provide internal insight on the situations. For example descriptions of cannibalism in Leningrad during the 90s.
He is critical of capitalism/capitalists and supports socialism and is against anti-communism which makes him a comrade. Just because they don't support "muh Belarus" color revolutions or the BLM looting doesn't make this change.

The fact it made people scared of nuclear shows how stupid the average consumer of media is. It went out of its way to say how safe western reactors were and how only extreme stupidity on the part of the operators and design led to the disaster yet people still take away "wow all nuclear is bad".

I watched it and thought it seemed a little goofy and propaganda-like, which was more sinister given it wasn't about a big american tough guy fighting commies (or something straightforward and non-serious like that). This series seemed to be saying that communism is what caused the reactor to blow up and I thought that was a bit silly.

The director is a rabid Clintonite Russia-gater. I tried watching the first episode once out of boredom and it was not worth it. Libs love it however.
If you want a "cinematic" show watch Young Pope, directed by Sorrentino who is a real film director. It's not amazing but it's way better than the rest of TV shit out there. "Golden Age of Television" my ass.

Especially the scenes where civilians were living their daily lives, it looked like a pretty good life.

To you it may look good, but to the average Western viewer all they see is "oh le poor brainwashed people don't know their commieblocks suck" (I legit have seen people say this kind of idiocy on /tv/ and twitter. Besides, the devil is the details. Small things that turn innocent daily life into "le soviet evul!" Russian review channels detail this a lot better than english ones

It definitely seemed to be sympathetic to the soviet character in some aspects. There was the scene of the ridiculous party propagandist that'd you expect when they're still in the denial phase discussing how to deal with the situation, but later when they're picking men for the suicide mission there's a resolute selflessness to do what everyone knows needs to be done for the good of mankind without complaint.

I watched the first episode. It has such an amazing sense of dread and atmosphere. It's incredible, meticulously done. And that makes it all the more frustrating that so much of it is dedicated to racist, chauvinist anti-Sovietism. The real tragedy in the series is the waste of talent that went behind creating it.

It was fine but that scene where the retarded old man was like “cut the phone lines” that shit was just straight movie overdramatized garbage. Chances are the biggest failings of Chernobyl are mismanagement, bad communication, not enough information. The only reasons why it took a little long for evacuation is because 1: evacuating an entire city is very difficult, 2: people didn’t know exactly how bad it was because of the chaos of the situation. There is no reason why the people managing this crisis would’ve downplayed it and anyone he pushes that narrative are probably spreading propaganda and lies.
So the show is cool except for when shit seems cartoony like the cutting of phone lines, the kgb following everyone, Sherbena or however you spell it threatening to shoot the heli pilot, the Soviet soldiers with the minister of coal threatening the miners. All stupid ass cartoony shit.
