They're not just adapting the story. They recreated and improved a gameplay section of the game. Reminds me how it took me a few tries to beat that section.
SHOW ME THE MONEY!!!!

Having played the game so many times before - hindi na ako apektado sa big final scene ......... in many ways, swerte ang mga noobs sa TLOU universe.

Though, it's very good that Mazin/Druckmnann keeps some things a bit fresh - so far, it's just the right balance of staying on-par with the game e.g. scenes, dialogue, plot, etc ........ and just putting in some nice changes here and there e.g. Bill and Frank backstory siyempre, Sam being deaf, etc.

I read Druckmann had an "Ellie's mother story" which did not materialize in the game and when he told Mazin about this, the latter said he convinced Druckmann that it has got to be in the HBO series. It will probably shed light on Ellie's immunity.

Ito na siguro, where Ashley Johnson plays the part of the mother .......... tuloy-tuloy na siguro hanggang Left Behind/Riley events.

Some trivia:  Nico Parker, who plays Sarah in the pilot episode, is the real life daughter of actress Thandiwe Newton. In another interesting bit, both Thandiwe and Nico can be considered as royalty since Thandiwe's mother is a Zimbabwean princess.

Episode 3 was like nothing ever attempted in any zombie story, on TV (Walking Dead) or the big screen (Romero's Living Dead films, 28 Days Later, etc);. Whatever you feel about gay love, at least it's different. That makes it my favorite, even if episode 5 is well done.

Minor quibble: They're called the "infected." Zombies are reanimated corpses.

The infected are still alive (technically), with their brains hijacked by the cordyceps.

Although I do feel this last episode was lifted almost scene per scene from the game, the actors still did their part to show more vulnerability for the characters (which wasn't always apparent in the game itself).

Really good chemistry between Pedro and Bella, btw.  You can almost tell they really enjoy working together.

Scene by scene comparison from last week's ep:

https://twitter.com/GameSpot/status/1627494497205514240

Really noticeable is how Henry, in the game, tells Joel "This is your fault," while in the series he asks, "What did I do?"

Another scene that was pitch perfect verbatim is Joel and Ellie's confrontation after she reads the teenager's diary on ep. 6. There was never any way that the power of that exchange would be the same if written or performed differently from the game.

It was only shown in bits, but Joel-Tess and Tommy-Maria relationships ........ and the main theme of the show, the "father-daughter" love/relationship of Joel and Ellie.

Totoo ito bro. Ako buwiset sa madaming forms (not all though) of "wokeness" across many forms of media, lalo na sa Hollywood.

IMO may exemption of sorts itong The Last Of Us.

2013 pa na release at linaro ng madami (including myself) itong game, concepted much earlier by Druckmann ........ canon itong gay relationships sa game. It's been there since it was concepted and released.

Pero syempre mga gamers lang ang makaka alam nito. Hehe.

What threw  me off a little was Maria Miller's (Tommy's wife) race swap. But that's that's just Holywood these days.

Ok lang naman ang diversity/inclusion when it doesn't appear forced (like sa Arrowverse 😅) or probably canon, like in the game. Minsan kaso, it's too obvious kaya nakakainis.

The race swaps aren't exactly gimmicky or unusual.

For starters, the brothers aren't "white" here, unlike in the VG. They're Chilean and Mexican, respectively. So may precedent na kaagad, and therefore it's not uncommon that Gabriel Luna is going to have an African-American SO.

That also applies to the fact that Sarah here is mixed (which Thandiwe Newton and by extension Nico Parker) than completely Caucasian.
