And her bones being fragile explains how Sarah had time to run. Grandma broke her back running out of the house. If this were a healthier person, Sarah would be dead before making it to the door.

@JiRey Animation I think the fungus is removing all pain but the muscles are still weak, they are just going on edge and don't care about any damage to their bones/muscles etc.

@Table 4205 once the cordyceps takes over, the person stops being able to control their own body. The fungus is in charge at that point, and the fungus has a single-minded goal: spreading the infection. So the infected person is going to do that regardless of physical limitations, since they no longer think rationally as a human being. They're still intelligent, but they're not thinking like a sane person would. It's more animalistic and primal.

Always gotta think, "if this was real and we didn't know we were in a zombie movie/show, how would we react?" Everyone yells at the neighbor Denise, but all she knows is Joel yelled at her then ran over their elderly neighbor. Of course she was gonna go check on them.

Common sense would tell Denise that the elderly neighbors weren't in the right state of mind. It's pretty damn obvious something is wrong with them, but ofc Denise had to throw her brain out the window for dramatic effect.

@Controlman What are you talking about? Why would she assume anything is wrong with them? All she saw was Joel and Tommy brandishing weapons, yelling at her to get inside, then run over her elderly neighbors. If anything she should assume something is wrong with Joel, it probably looked like he burglarized the neighbors’ house and was escaping.

Right. Unless you witnessed a zombie actively killing/eating someone like Joel's daughter did or had at least heard about it, that situation with the neighbor would've have been anyone. Tremendously bad luck. Or maybe not so bad, going through a collapse of a civilization of this level is unprecedented and assuredly a hell that's almost impossible for the normal first world citizen to be able to comprehend.
Martinbumms 4 aylar önce
yes! I would really like to see more people being more emphatic with other people than just the protagonists. When rana said to Marlene that she should tell Joel why they have to transport Ellie, I thought "why would she do that!?". Marlene knows Joel as a smuggler who, as it seems, it cabable of everything, good and bad. So If Marlene would tell them, she wouldn't know what Joel and Tess would do with that information, maybe they do what they are asked to do, maybe they use that info, maybe they bring Ellie to someone else. Marlene only knows this smuggler version of Joel and he is not to be trusted, except when you got something that he wants.

Only thing missing was Joel saying, "Don't do this to me," when he knows in his head she's dead, as if he were praying to God as well as his daughter. Of course, that's in the game, but even so, it was so well done.

NOTE: the game is based off infection by spores (reason why they wear gas masks). The show based it off of the same fungal infection but instead of being infected by spores, you are infected by TENDRILLS (which is in their mouths), hence why Joel and Tess don’t wear gas masks. The directors and Neil Druckman stated that this change would make more sense if it were reality. If spores were in the show, that would mean everyone would have to wear masks all of the time.

Also, Sarah has no flour for her pancakes, Nana is first seen eating biscuits that Joel then refuses because he's on a diet, Sarah doesn't take a cookie because she doesn't like raisins and Joel forgot to buy a birthday cake after work. So, Contaminated flour started the outbreak?

EliteTeamKiller 4 aylar önce
That actually happened in real life in France in 1951. Got a bunch of people sick, many had hallucinations, and some actually got violent (including a little boy trying to strangle his grandmother, and another guy jumping out of a window thinking he was an airplane). It's definitely realistic. . What's not really realistic is a sudden evolutionary shift that causes the fungus to use humans in their reproduction cycle, and one that spreads so suddenly. (1) The change probably couldn't happen so suddenly. It'd have to have happened gradually, with the fungus using humans for quite a while before fully evolving to spread from direct contact. (2) If there was a critical mass in human to human infection, it's be a localized event, and most likely would have been contained pretty quickly. (3) There's no way an infection would take hold and spread that quickly. It have to at least be several days to have tendrils develop like that, with a stage in which the human is incapacitated and sick for a while, which would allow doctors to see the tendrils growing inside them, which they'd physically remove. As far as the patients themselves, it'd probably bring up several ethical issues about euthanasia and quarantining them. . So fungi infecting humans and driving them crazy isn't what's far fetched. But fungi doing it so effectively and quickly is. Most likely this would be more like Contagion than a zombie apocalypse, where infected patients are chained to beds or locked up as the fungus slowly kills them while doctors try to find cures or prolong their lives (by manually removing tendrils form their throats as they grow).

I love how they fake you out with the truck almost hitting you and flipping their truck and you expect that because that's what happens in the game but they don't do it and immediately go bigger and badder with the crashing plane. It subverts expectations and immediately delivers with a bigger set piece.

For me one of the best changes they did for the show was a very tiny one. The call from Tommy when he got arrested and asked Joel to bail him out. It's such a small thing and yet it delivered so much in 3 ways. First it gives us a better characterization of Tommy. He saw someone attacking a waitress and his first instinct is to help, even if it get him in trouble, which it did before (Tommy says "I'm in jail, it's not my fault THIS TIME"). He is a guy who tries to do good, he didn't shoot at mushroom granny, he wanted to help the people on the street and he hesitatet to drive through the people all these things could have been bad for himself, just as the jail was, but his instinct is to be a good guy. Second the relationship between Joel and Tommy. Tommy calls him, not a friend or whatever. He gives a quick explanation what happend and Joel, even when he is annoyed, will help 100%. These two guys would do everything for each other and that brings up the question what happend, that they are not together in Boston. And Third, the progression of the outbreak. It starts with the host talking about trouble in Indonesia, a little twitch here, more active police and fire department there, some jets and at the last thing before the actual outbreak and infected, we hear Tommy talking about a guy randomly attacking someone. And I love that all of those things, aren't that special. All of those signs, that we know how to interpret are every day events, so sure you see it but so what? It's just a fucked up friday ... or the end of the world. I'm so impressed by Craig Mazin and Neil Druckman. They knew exactly which parts of the game are perfect just as they were in the game and transfered it almost perfectly, they knew which ideas from the game work for live-action but needed to be adjusted and they recognised the parts from the game which wouldn't in a live-action show and where they would have to go a different way. It's such a display of knowledge, passion and the needed ingenuity to connect them both to make it work.

A line of dialogue explains why tommy isn't in Boston. He's a firefly working for marlene. that's why joel knows marlene and marlene knows him, they keep in frequent contact and when tommy goes 3 weeks without responding joel knows something is wrong and decides to go find him.

@Abbigail okay, I didn't catch it that specific in the first episode, just that she was, in Joel's opinion, the reason why he and Tommy had some sort of falling out. As far as I can remember Joel just said something like "you turned my brother against me" or something like that

"nepo baby" lol. So they shoudl def have hired someone different for Marlene then, since this is her VA from the game so she already had her shot. "This kid shouldn't get a career chance because of her parents" is an odd take. It's not like she's without credits prior to this casting, and as far as we know auditioned against a lot of other kids.

It’s important to know that Druckmann and Mazin decided to change how the infection works. It’s NOT spores anymore, but more of a tendril system. It’s different, but looks really icky in the old neighbor woman’s mouth; Druckmann liked the idea of the infection being connected like a system, and I get the change for the show.

So glad y’all are reacting to this show finally! Love that HBO is being extremely faithful to the game while adding new layers to the story & character relationships (ex. Sarah) that give the show more nuance! Definitely the best live-action adaptation of a videogame I’ve seen this far & up there with the likes of other few great adaptations like Arcane & Castlevania. ❤ p.s. huge shoutout to cast as they knocked it out of the park. Especially Nico Parker & Gabriel Luna; who sounds exactly like his videogame counterpart, as their performances are so good!

I love this analysis and agree on many levels. However, I’m still managing my expectations. The main challenge of translating VGs to film is the pacing. The opening of TLOU is very densely packed with plot points yet had relatively limited action sequences. All the tutorial combat against the runners in the smugglers’ path, Rob’s men, and the Fedra agents that players encounter before meeting Ellie? All of that was cut, and the context that would’ve been delivered in dialogue along the way needed to be condensed into a handful of scenes. That is surprisingly difficult to accomplish, yet they did it pretty effectively. However, this was the easiest segment of the game to do that with. Relatively speaking, there wasnt much need for expansion on detail to accommodate for the removed gameplay segments in this episode. The primary question is how well this adjustment to pacing can be maintained for segments like Pittsburgh, where you learn so much about the story, over such a long period of time, while navigating environments and contexts that wouldn’t be as exciting to a TV audience who’s attention isn’t also split between plot and gameplay. The game’s strategy is immersive and organic, but it’s not feasible for a TV audience. The secondary question is how this adjustment in pacing will affect the believability of the characters. Joel is an incredibly violent man in the VGs. It’s understandable because he lived in an incredibly violent world, but for the show to be immersive, I think HBO will insist on either making most of the enemies more humanized, which would further dehumanize Joel for killing them, or just remove enough of the violence to the point that it isn’t even as essential a part of his character. That is one example of how adaptations to pacing can affect character. There are many others. Not tryna be a Debbie downer. If anything, I share your positive opinion. I’m just still keeping expectations low for now.

The Last of Us is one of the best stories ever told in videogame history in my opinion. The first episode really has the spirit of the game and the show seems to remain faithful to the game. Pedro Pascal and Bella Ramsey are great actors and they do a great job portraying Joel & Ellie. Nico Parker who plays Sarah also did a good job! I really hope that this show manages to stick the landing and do the story of the game justice. Such a great time to be a Last of Us fan!

i really hope this season is good. It'll show other production companies that it's possible to make a hit live action story based on games. They just have to do it right, and not let the IP be changed too much. Imagine what they could do with the flood if done well?

Troy Baker hosts the HBO The Last of Us podcast. Craig Mazin and Neil Druckmann are both on there as well to explain how they translated the game to tv and why specific decisions were made. They will release an episode a week just like the show. Definitely check it out :)

Pedro Pascal has officially been typecasted as a reluctant single dad, and considering he sold a father-son relationship with a puppet when he was completely covered in armor I’m shocked you’d doubt his casting in this lol

About Marlene not telling Joel about Ellie's condition. If they know the maybe could sell the girl to someone who pays higher or maybe don't even believe and just leave without doing the job.

It seems as though most zombie, or zombie-type stories plunge you right into the full on outbreak, so I appreciate any time they do any bit of build up. It's one of the reasons I really enjoyed the first season of Fear the Walking Dead, and the book version of World War Z.

I dont think it was shown in the reaction. But Sarah's classmate was also twitching like the old lady and probably infected. that's why he kept flashing her with his watch! Edit: Micky subtly mentioned at the end. Nice!

the voice actors for the game are actually involved in the show. Marlene is reprised by Merle Dandrige who did the voice acting. Ashley and Troy will also make an appearance in the show.

I like that the show builds up towards the outbreak, but I still prefer how the game just jumps right into it and gets us to care in just a short amount of minutes.

On the topic of how the voice actors feel about being replaced. I know Ashley Johnson, who voiced Ellie, is extremely supportive of Bella Ramsey, she's been very vocal about this on her instagram. Also Ashley is a well-acredited actor too, she has a major role on the show blindspot and has been a whole lot of shorts. I haven't kept up with Troy Baker but I imagine he's equally supportive.
