Interesting series about the Fukushima disaster. A Chernobyl clone. Although I think that series is more into the skin than The Days.

The series mainly reveals the slow inefficient system of the Japanese. TOEPCO is only interested in minimizing damage to the nuclear reactors. Human lives are not important. The government is led by an aggressive screaming prime minister. His environment is so afraid of him that they all deny, put things into perspective and, above all, remain silent.

It's pretty slow.

The series is fascinating because you can see that inventiveness and perseverance play an important role in solving the crisis.

The acting seems okay.

The images in the reactor are exciting.

It is clear that people cannot cope with a disaster of this magnitude. Although, I think, you can never prepare for disasters like this.
