The Last of Us Discussion - Use Spoilerbuttons

As the title suggests this is a place to discuss the show The Last of Us. Since I didn't specify we can also discuss the video games here as well. For background I've played both games. I've beat NG+ with the first one. I tried NG+ with the second one, but I just couldn't get into it. If I had more time I'd probably get through it, but I'm holding out for the multiplayer game.

Onto the show though. I'm thoroughly impressed so far. I respect their decision to deviate from the game with how they presented the infection. Gas masks don't make for dramatic scenes. The casting choices have been incredible so far as well. I loved Pedro Pascal in The Mandalorian, and he's absolutely nailed it as Joel. So far Bella Ramsey has captured my interpretation of Ellie's personality, and with dressing her the same I barely notice anymore.

 


It doesn't sound like they want to drag this out unnecessarily, so I'm really looking forward to what will probably be an exciting two or three seasons.

Nobody eh?

Well if anyone starts watching the show I’ll be here. It’s a quality program regardless of whether you’re familiar with the games.

Only watched the first 2 so far but I'm really enjoying it. I have played the first game and curious to see how the stories align over the 3 seasons.

Its been a while since I played the game so I'm struggling to remember how Ellie started out as character but for the gritty apocalypse time it fits. Very happy to see Pedro on screen again, agree on the mandalorian and his casting here.

 


I am liking this age of limited series as I think the quality has gone up and I think having a defined end is a big contributor to that. No need to succumb to recycled crisis of the week.

I'm about to watch episode three if this stream will load. Ellie's backstory is the DLC for the first game.
