‘The Last of Us’ Scores HBO’s Second-Biggest Premiere in More Than a Decade

HBO’s series adaptation of hit PlayStation game “The Last of Us” premiered Sunday, drawing the premium cable channel’s second-biggest debut of the last 13 years, behind only “House of the Dragon.”

Per Nielsen ratings and Warner Bros. Discovery’s own first party data, the first episode of the Pedro Pascal and Bella Ramsey-led drama scored 4.7 million U.S. viewers across both the linear HBO channel and streamer HBO Max.

That figure makes the “The Last of Us” premiere the second-largest opening for an HBO show since “Boardwalk Empire” premiere in 2010, well before HBO Max had launched and even before its predecessor streamers, HBO Go and HBO Now, were widely available to customers.

This was a compelling series/season premiere. I’m not familiar with the game. Not sure if that’s a bad thing, but I still enjoyed the first episode.
We deserve better.

IMO those who are not familiar with the game, will definitely enjoy the series as it has an extremely great story with a great discussion-inducing ending .......... like a great dramatic mash-up of early Walking Dead and The Road.

As for us gamers who played this back in the PS3 through the PS5, we enjoy seeing how they closely stuck with the visuals of the game, while putting just enough fresh content - the opening 1960's TV show was just brilliant.

This is long overdue - finally, we get a great adaptation of a beloved videogame.

As a big fan of the games, I wasn't disappointed. I was skeptical of Bella Ramsey at first as I've only seen her in Game of Thrones. But she nailed it as Ellie

this is my 2nd all time favorite PS exclusive game.. done with this game 3x. i can say 100% na this is the real adaptation.

if you played this game vs the episode 1 grabe, frame to frame, emotions, background musics,casting, acting, the tone of voice habang nag uusap, para kang naglalaro mismo ng game

kaya lalo ko na appreciate ang episode 1. sana ma maintain nila ang takbo ng kwento.

So far, so good.  :)

It's great for both fans of the game and new viewers alike.  I liked Chernobyl very much but I still had my doubts since game adaptations that turn out good are few and far between.  But it does seem like Craig Mazin loved the game very much as many scenes in the series look like they were screencaptured from the game itself.

The PC remake will have a very high set of expectations to meet as it looks like HBO nailed it with the tv adaptation.

HBO Renews ‘The Last Of Us’ For A Second Season

As widely expected, ‘The Last of Us’ has officially been renewed for Season 2, HBO announced today. It follows a debut that was watched by 22 million viewers domestically in the US and quickly became a hot topic on social media.

Following the announcement, executive producer and Naughty Dog co-president Neil Druckmann has also confirmed in a tweet that the second season will follow ‘The Last of Us: Part 2’ game, just as the show's first season is based on the original The Last of Us game (later rebranded as Part 1).

Hailed as possibly one of the best episodes not just of this young series so far, but possibly for TV this year. Not hard to understand why.

Yeah. That's some award winning stuff right there.

Too bad we don't get the what is probably the funniest scenes in the game. For those who played it, you know what it is.

Just saw it. Nick Offerman and Murray Bartlett should BOTH be winning Emmys.

Loved the episode. I've seen criticisms about it being unnecessary but I thought Bill's letter was intended (unintentionally) to inspire Joel to replace Tess with Ellie.

It reminds me of a Walking Dead episode when Morgan learned to value life again which also had an Emmy-contending performance from a guest star. Like that, it also had plenty of detractors.

Ewan ko ba, hindi naman dapat puros 100% consistent sa videogame or may ratratan para masulit yung Dolby Atmos setup, lmao.

As advertised weeks ago, the 3rd episode was a homerun ........ one of the great TV episodes in a long time.

I agree. The show's treatment of Bill and Frank is much better than the videogame's.

It also paved the way for Joel to care for Ellie.

The storytelling so far is great, most specifically for episode 3.  Though understandably, it can get uncomfortable to some, to say the least.  Dun papasok ang fast forward option, if ever.  :D
