TV series adaptation of HBO’s post-apocalyptic mushroom festival Our Last debuted on streaming services on both sides of the Atlantic over the past few days, and now the next trailer shows what’s to come for the rest of the show’s first season. It has a lot of bad guys infected with cordyceps, a drama about grim humans and Pedro Pascal as Pedro Pascal. You can check out the Weeks Ahead trailer below and wonder where The Mandalorian left his helmet.
We can safely assume that the show will play out like the game’s story, and Ellie seems to be headed for a fate similar to the one she met in the 2013 PlayStation 3 original. Only with direct action, instead of crouching behind objects and sneaking around. However, critics seem to be appreciating Naughty Dog’s sci-fi survival story for its lack of interactivity. The BBC called it “the best video game adaptation ever”, while Guard consider it a “perfect” translation of our favorite television medium.
I haven’t seen The Last Of Us yet, as I haven’t finished the first game yet. I think that’s probably the right way to experience them – the game first, then the TV show. In the time-hungry world we find ourselves in, Katharine had to wonder about the same thing and ask more yesterday. The Last Of Us isn’t even the only show based on games that aired on television, though it may not have grossed as poorly as Netflix’s take on Resident Evil and get cancel after only one season. I’m still holding out hope that Amazon’s Kyle MacLachlan stars as Amazon fallout adaptation turned out to be good.
You can stream The Last Of Us on HBO in the US and on Sky Atlantic via Now TV in the UK. Or, you know, you can wait to play the game when it launches for PC on Steam and Epic game store March 3, price £50/$60/€60.
