The first episode of HBO’s post-apocalyptic drama “The Last of Us” aired last night, and it far exceeded all expectations. The series generated a lot of buzz prior to its release and is without a doubt one of the biggest shows of 2023. The HBO series, which is based on the same-named video game series, mainly centers on Joel (Pedro Pascal), who is tasked with removing Ellie (Bella Ramsey), a 14-year-old girl, from an oppressive quarantine zone. They quickly learn that the journey will be difficult and that they will need to rely on one another to survive.
The show is receiving a lot of praise for its stunning cinematography in addition to its outstanding performances and epic storytelling. The premiere received universal acclaim from critics and viewers. The creators did an excellent job of looking for locations that could fit perfectly with the moody atmosphere, and the post-apocalyptic world they created in the series is quite similar to what we see in the video game series.
