The Last of Us

Who's watching The Last of Us on HBO?  The game series might be my favorite videogames of alltime.  I was a bit nervous about how they'd do the show.
I gotta say, after two episodes, this show is fantastic!  Whether you played the games or not, it's worth checking out.
For those that have played it and not seen it, so far it has stuck to the game very closely.  The deviations have been well done too.  I also think Pedro and Bella have done amazing as Joel and Ellie!

Let's keep this thread as Spoiler-Free as possible!!

    I don't know anything about the game but yeah....great show. Sunday night's episode was awesome.

    It does remind me a lot of I am Legend though.

    Never played the game (always had an xbox) but I absolutely love the show so far.
  • Have plans to watch the show. Both games are fantastic. Previews look great. I don’t mind deviations from the original. Cast looks great and I’ll watch Pedro Pascal in anything.

    Agree, my favourite game I've played (I might prefer the second game though), but had high expectations for the tv show and so far its delivered.  Clickers look great and that was always going to be the most difficult part, I read they used the same actors who did the motion capture on the game hence why the sound and movements are so true to the game.

    I think this will be my next show to watch!
    Wouldn't it be funny if the world ended in 2010, with lots of fire?

    Google The Last of Us and a mushroom will appear. Keep clicking on it. I don't know if it ends though

    I haven't played the first game in a long time, but there are some scenes/parts from the game that I hope they absolutely nail!  I don't think there was ever a videogame that I played....ever....that made me tear up.  Both games did and I'm the least emotional person out there.  haha!

    Without being "spoiler-y", I don't think we know this.  This season is supposed to be the first game, and the creators haven't mentioned what they are going to do (if anything....but you know they will) with the second game.  Future Days was in the second game.

    Will it be multiple seasons? I thought it was a one off miniseries. Also in the game it started in 2013. The show in 2003. It doesn't mean they can't use it. Because they've newer songs on shows that took place earlier before

    From what I read, this season will cover all of game one.  Neil Druckman (game creator) and the show runners more or less said that if this is a success then they'd go into game 2...and that would be it. 
    Druckman also recently indicated that there may be a third game at some point.  Given how fn LONG it takes to make a game, I'm guessing they've been working on that for a while now.

    That wasn’t in the game but man what an episode, incredible from both Nick and Murray. 
    Every change from the game has been amazing so far and really added to the story. Last week was brilliant to see some clickers, but a standout episode this week, very emotional.

    I'm waiting for all the episodes to be released before binging. I hate the weekly release format so much!!

    It's an HBO show. They air stuff weekly. If it was exclusively HBO Max it might be different.

    Finished the 1st episode, really good. Forgot how good the music was in the game

    Great, but short(er) episode last night.  I didn't post on episode 3, but I have to say, that was one of the best episodes on TV in years, IMO.  So good!

    In case you missed it, this week's episode (#5) will be shown on Friday due to the Superbowl.
    It's crazy to think that the season is already almost halfway over.  Knowing how much more there is in game one, I wonder if most will be longer (hour+) episodes.

    Just to clarify, it will still air in its normal Sunday night slot but it will be available to stream on HBO Max on Friday due to the SB
