Am I the only one that hates “The Last of Us”?

Jesus, just more Walking Dead bullshit. This had been so hyped so maybe my expectations weren’t realistic. Pedro Pascal is a cutie, no argument there but this is crap.

Better production values than the Walking Dead. Really shows that this was a worldwide apocalypse. Ep. 3 is supposed to be great.

Filmed in Alberta, so pass.

It is awful. I didn't make it past the first episode. All the glowing reviews are so weird. In what world is this a quality production? The acting sucks too.

by Anonymousreply 3January 24, 2023 1:26 AM

I thought it was boring and dreary. And I was looking forward to watching it… I enjoy apocalyptic type fare.

by Anonymousreply 4January 24, 2023 1:28 AM

It’s alright. But yeah, nothing too original in the 2 episodes so far, except that it’s a fungus this time. I expect the game was more novel when it premiered. And we’ve already seen the transformation of people into flora in the film Annihilation.

I’m not watching anything based on a fucking game.

by Anonymousreply 6January 24, 2023 1:38 AM

Well r6 you shouldn't write things off just because they were based on a game. Doesn't mean it can't be a good project. And this is only going to get bigger and bigger, live action tv shows/movies based on games aren't going away.

All I know is that the young actress on this show is UGLY.

How did she get cast?

by Anonymousreply 10January 24, 2023 2:15 AM

How is this series premise different from Walking Dead, or any zombie apocalypse for that matter? I mean, it's just one big "zoinks! we gotta outrun the packs of zombies" scenario. As the series plods on and on, it becomes about (shocker!) which lead character gets killed off

by Anonymousreply 11January 24, 2023 2:15 AM

It's not that different, but it's still entertaining. And the Walking Dead is basically 28 Days Later.

by Anonymousreply 12January 24, 2023 2:20 AM

I'm simply sick of zombie shit. If I want to deal with zombies I'd walk over to one of the thousands of trash-encrusted encampments of the drug addicted and mentally ill all over town and say hello.

Also ... I was underwhelmed by the writing and the pointless convoluted drama of the show. I don't hate it, but "meh".

RETRACTION: after swearing off this show someone told me to just watch the third episode. Holy shit! Blown away. What a beautiful and unexpected episode.

Pedro Pascal a cutie??? His face looks like a chewed up old shoe.

Third episode anyone. Kinda gay. OK, a lot gay. Anyone?

by Anonymousreply 18January 31, 2023 11:47 PM

It is different than the Walking Dead. The creatures evolve and are part of a hive mind. You step on the tendrils and it is like a GPS, they'll come after you. I'm tired of zombies as well (stopped watching TWD when Neagan popped up) but this does have some sizable differences.

He doesn't look his nest in this r17. He's much cuter than that.

OP I don't like it and couldn't watch much, enough with zombies.

by Anonymousreply 21February 1, 2023 1:09 AM

Ep 3 was lovely. What a beautiful paradise they created in a horrible world.

Likely gay actor and DL favorite Nick Galitzine posted about it. I know he played the games, but it still made me smile :)

A lot of people hated the third episode as they wanted zombies and they feel that the bar is set so low for television that people think this was great writing. 25 years ago it would have been deemed below average. People are saying that audiences have forgotten what great writing is.

by Anonymousreply 23February 1, 2023 5:39 AM

25 years ago that episode wouldn't have been made.

I watched the game version and it’s way better. Bella is hard pass as Ellie.

by Anonymousreply 27February 1, 2023 6:41 AM

I love Murray Bartlett so I wanted to watch it for that reason alone. I made it through about an hour of the first episode and gave up. I was not interested or entertained and the only way I would continue is if someone paid me to watch it.

by Anonymousreply 28February 1, 2023 6:47 AM

It gets better so far each episode.

by Anonymousreply 29February 1, 2023 6:50 AM

Same, R28: I haven't managed to make it through the first episode yet (three attempts). Pascal is watchable; the daughter is fantastic, the plane crash was exciting but it all feels like a chore. I'm expecting it to become just another soap-opera-with-zombies thing.

by Anonymousreply 30February 1, 2023 6:36 PM

How many fucking PRESTIGE TV Series are going to be about Zombies or the Apocalypse.

by Anonymousreply 31February 1, 2023 6:44 PM

I'm at the very least glad that a video game adaptation has been done that critics are accepting. There's far better stuff than The Last of Us out there and maybe this will open the gates for other adaptations to get financed.

by Anonymousreply 32February 1, 2023 6:47 PM

I thought the same thing when I started watching but it's not The Walking Dead. This show goes to a completely different place. Keep watching.

R23 - Bullshit. All I've been reading on social media are fans of the show highly praising 'Long, Long Time'. Many are already calling it one of the best episodes of 2023. Even Linda Ronstadt's music is suddenly popular on most music apps.

CNN Entertainment - ‘The Last of Us’ just made an early claim to one of the best TV episodes of 2023:

It's a good episode r36 but is being insanely overhyped.

by Anonymousreply 37February 1, 2023 10:17 PM

I don't hate it, but I have given up on it. The older I get, the less ugliness I want to see. It stays in my head too long. So, even though I like science fiction and some zombie productions, no more of this show for me.

by Anonymousreply 38February 1, 2023 11:27 PM

It was really good, R37 but I suspect it will now return to Walking Dead zombie stuff.

Wrong. People are trashing it everywhere. People are divided. Even IMDB is fighting over it.

by Anonymousreply 40February 2, 2023 12:02 AM

Watched the first episode, but yeah, I’m kinda over the apocalypse already. Too many apocalypses.. apocalypi?

by Anonymousreply 41February 2, 2023 12:04 AM

Higher budget than the walking dead. They can afford to let the surroundings tell the story while the walking dead had to include at least several speeches per episodes.

by Anonymousreply 42February 2, 2023 12:12 AM

So it's about zombies?

I'm going to wait until all the first season episodes are ready and watch the whole thing at once.
