  The Last of Us Review  

The show stars Pablo Pascal as Joel. The show and the game have a lot of similarities and very few differences which make it one of the best adaptations.

For the differences, the most notable is that in the show, to be infected, you have to get in contact with the tendrils instead of the spores in the air which we see in the game.

That move does make sense so that the actors wouldn’t have to wear masks all throughout.

The most notable similarities so far are Sarah’s death and the vehicle scene which are very similar to that of the events in the game.

The Last of Us airs every Sunday/Monday on HBO.
