The wait is over, ‘The Last of Us’ is finally here, which is a refreshing change to witness video game adaptations that are loyal to the original material, as well as for the show’s writers to recognize how relevant and vital the tale is to its fans.
It is the highest-rated Show ever on IMDB. For fans who really want a thriller series to be portrayed over the screens, The Last of Us is surely one of them. Fans are going crazy over its episode as soon as it came out. It is totally not about retaining the original video game but it is about the original content that came out of the video game into reality. Moreover, the fans really are inspired by the cinematography.

#TheLastOfUs is the best video game adaptation I’ve ever seen. The faithful show manages to improve upon the original material with some nifty welcomed additions. Pedro Pascal is superb as Joel, while Bella Ramsey is great as Ellie. A new “high score” for video game adaptations. pic.twitter.com/jdiBbMU82r

The new HBO series is set mostly in a post-apocalyptic world inhabited by fungi-covered, zombie-like humans. Joel Miller (Pascal), is a fierce and grieved middle-aged man whose ruthless survival abilities have made him a trustworthy smuggler in ‘The Last of Us’ terrifying environment. It is at the core of the plot. For most of the first season, the show follows Joel as he attempts to transport a 14-year-old girl called Ellie (Ramsey) across a dangerous, zombie-infested America.
#TheLastOfUs may have just dropped one of the best premieres I’ve seen in years. With the same gripping tension of the video game balanced with dramatically satisfying characters and impeccable narrative pacing, it expands on the world while being faithful to its tone.
