For all of us who have watched the premiere of this new HBO series, ‘The Last Of Us‘, there is great news. The second episode of this game-inspired TV series will be broadcasted tonight (Sunday, January 22nd) at 8/9 PM.
Yes, that’s right! You can watch the second episode tonight. Also, the good news is that every new episode will be broadcast on Sunday evenings.
What’s it about?
There are nine episodes in the first season, and all episodes will be broadcasted on Sunday evenings around 8/9 PM, turning your cozy Sunday evening into a horror night. If you are ready, then reserve your seat in front of your TV. We have already mentioned that it’s a horror TV show in a zombie apocalypse setting. The main two characters are Joel (Pedro Pascal) and Ellie (Bella Ramsey).
To some gamers/watchers, Pedros is a hero trying to save the world, but will he stay in that role, or will he betray humanity for his own reasons? We are about to see. He is a smuggler who has to take Ellie all across the country. The story starts some twenty years after a pandemic caused by a mass fungal infection.
The title of the second episode is ‘Infected’ and it reveals what is going on. Prepare yourself for more walking-dead creatures with a brain infection caused by the Cordyceps. There will be a lot of running and escaping from the Infected.
Is The Last of Us Worth Watching?
Yes, it is. Especially if you have ever played the game The Last of Us, because it is adapted into this TV show. Naughty Dog’s Neil Druckmann and Chernobyl’s Craig Mazin are the team members who put this video game on the screen. Such a fandom is already created around this TV show. As proof of this, it has become the most-watched HBO TV show since The House of Dragons (in 2010), only after the first episode.
If this isn’t enough, the opening scene is terrifying thanks to actor John Hannah, whom we remember from the Mummy film. As a doctor, he warns people about the potential effects of the Cordyceps brain infection. We won’t spoil all the content of the first episode. It’s for you to watch it.
Its soundtrack was done by Gustavo Santaolalla, which foreshadows the theme of the TV show and creates a picturesque setting. Gustavo was inspired by Spanish folk music and gothic country. The other great songs are also used throughout the whole first season. The closing credits in the first episode belong to Depeche Mode. It’s their song ‘’Never let me down’’.
Get ready for a game-series adventure
It’s beyond doubt that this TV show is worth watching, even if you haven’t played the game or if this genre isn’t your type. Challenge yourself and turn your lovely Sundays into Sundays of post-apocalypse. We hope you won’t scream that much. Great cast, chilling music and fascinating story are waiting for you.
