Since the first season of HBO’s The Last Of Us was the sensation of the spring, it stands to reason they would get to work on a second season right away….under normal circumstances. But the writers’ strike has put a lot of shows on pause, and as of today, you can add this one to them.
The Last of Us
It’s official: HBO’s TV adaption of The Last Of Us is a huge success. It brought in 8.2 million viewers last Sunday, an improvement over the previous weekend, and this was against the Oscars. For the record, here are the viewership numbers from week to week, which kept climbing up:
The season finale of The Last Of Us on HBO Max races to the finish line in an erratic and unsettling way that seems to encapsulate the style of the series as a whole. Feeling like a checklist of plot points that the show runners forgot to cover in the previous 8 episodes, this brisk 44 minute episode did manage to stir up some feelings.
Bella Ramsey has proven herself time and again to be the breakout star of The Last Of Us and wisely the show runners dedicated an entire episode to Ellie’s youthful adventures, which disproves the notion that there can be too much of a good thing.
If there’s one thing The Last Of Us knows how to do, it’s upset me. It’s not too violent or too vulgar, too boring or too predictable. Perhaps it’s just too…unconventional? Episode 6 of The Last Of Us was possibly the most jarring bit of television of I’ve seen.
The experience of watching The Last Of Us thus far has been a bit frustrating. Some episodes have challenged my expectations in wonderful ways, while others have fallen below the designation of prestige television that has been attached to the HBO Max series. The 5th episode continues the trend of pulling me back from the brink of boredom, by delivering an exciting, complicated story with unexpected twists.
Horror television is often looking for a way to surprise the audience. It might be through a well-timed jump scare, a ghastly monster design or unexpected death of a beloved character. Rarely is that surprise achieved by completely shaking up the formula and dropping what equates to a self-contained short film about a love story into the middle of the season. Long, Long Time, Episode 3 of The Last of Us dares to challenge its audience and succeeds in delivering a truly unique viewing experience.
HBO’s The Last of Us is a phenomenal show, but you likely already knew that. if you’re not watching it yourself, you know numerous people who constantly tell you how good it is. And if you don’t have that, you at least have me to pester you. WATCH THE LAST OF US, DUDE.
Cordyceps Fungi is the cause of the Zombie Apocalypse in both Video Game and TV version of The Last of Us. These orange mushrooms had been the cause of fear, tragedy and tears on the show. On Episode 2, When expert Mycologist Ratna Pertiwi accepts defeat. She advised the military to bomb the city it. Ratna said this because there isn’t a vaccine or treatment for the disease yet. In the episode, fungi changed the wheat into bad wheat, and the flour that had been changed was sent all over the world. You must have been glad to find out that this show is a work of fiction. You don’t need to worry about Zombifying mushroom spores right?
