The thing is, two episodes in, I loved the walking dead. But that went on for 11 years and I stopped watching after 7 or 8.

So hopefully they’ll keep this series tight, concise and full of action, I also hope they keep revisiting the outbreak origins.
Not watched it yet but if it closely mirrors the games which there are only 2 I can't see them dragging it out that long.

The ones from this episode (clickers as you call them) reminded me of triffids.

I can't see it going beyond 2, maybe 3, seasons. The games' stories are pretty concise in terms of story and don't allow for it to go on forever.

I still need to play the 2nd game I'm only a few hours in and it's in my back log.

Re: The Last of Us

Wasnt over impressed with this weeks episode.
I'm told its just following the game still, but it was all pretty dull to me.
We didnt learn much new, and the only thing that really happened was they got a car.
This felt like a 20 minute story stretched out to over an hour. Still, it hasnt put me off yet.

Well I viewed this as more of a story adjacent episode. TWD did this occasionally, but not as well. It only pushes the main show incrementally but tells a story within its own episode.

I enjoyed it. You can have your opinions on the relationship between the men and how far it the intimate moments were pushed. It didn’t bother me. It wasn’t a woke episode, there was no narrative being pushed, no “ you should think this way” script. It was just a story and they happened to be men.

I also loved how the girl thought the old truck was like a spaceship and asking what it was like to actually fly in a plane, because she never had, nor probably never will.

Also how they visually morphed from the bodies in the mass grave in the present to the people in the past.

Also that we now know who played the 80’s music on the radio, and that they probably died before Joel and the girl left Boston.

It’s a very strong and well put together show so far.

That episode was the first major deviation from the game. That couple were in a relationship in the game but you only meet Bill after they've broken up, you do gameplay stuff, and at the end of the chapter you arrive at a house to find Frank had hung himself to avoid turning after he was bitten.

I think they have to have stuff like that to breath more life into the world but I am now concerned how rushed the last few episodes will be as there is a lot more to get though.

This week's episode didn't progress things enough in that regard. I liked it, and am interested to see how they handle the next scenes, but the pace needs to pick up.

Yeah, didn’t think this weeks moved things along that much.

Re: The Last of Us

Yes, it seems to have slowed down a lot in the last two episodes.
It did end on a bit of a cliff hanger this week (which was also the shortest episode so far).

Re: The Last of Us

Well episode 5 was another slow burner for ages, almost driving me to the fast forward button - but then it finally burst into life ! Quite an ending.

Re: The Last of Us

Much better than the last episode. The scene where they're underground in the play area is lifted from the game, in that game you find out via notes left around of that being a community of people from the perspective of 'Ish' and in the TV show they have the exact drawing from the game: https://i.insider.com/63e72c1d96242f...jpeg&auto=webp

The finale of the episode is almost shot for shot from the game as well.

I think the clicker girl at the end was under used, or used in a poor way. Used in a different scene, she could have been terrifying, the way she moved.

Re: The Last of Us

Knowing what's left I really think they should have down 10 episodes.

I presume you mean 'done'.
They have a second season now.
