Overview of "The Last of Us"

"The Last of Us" is an American post-apocalyptic drama television series created by Craig Mazin and Neil Druckmann for HBO. Based on the 2013 video game developed by Naughty Dog, the series is set twenty years after a mass fungal infection caused by a mutation in the genus Cordyceps, which sparked a global pandemic. The infection causes its victims to transform into hostile, cannibalistic creatures resembling zombies. The series follows Joel (Pedro Pascal), a smuggler tasked with escorting the teenage Ellie (Bella Ramsey) across the post-apocalyptic United States. Guest stars include Nico Parker as Joel's daughter Sarah, Gabriel Luna as Joel's younger brother Tommy, Merle Dandridge as resistance leader Marlene, and Anna Torv as Joel's smuggler partner Tess.

20 years after a pandemic has radically changed known civilization, infected humans run wild and survivors are killing each other for food, weapons; or whatever they can get their hands on. Joel, a violent survivor, is hired to smuggle a 14-year-old girl, Ellie, out of an oppressive military quarantine zone, but what starts as a small job soon transforms into a brutal journey across the U.S.

Big props go to the creators and crew. Together they brought one of the greatest video games of the past decade to the real world. Every aspect of this show, from the cinematography, the editing, set design, music, and special effects - perfectly encapsulates the tone and atmosphere of the game, and it all feels real. There is no shortage of excellence in this season opener from any department or performer. Craig Mazin (Chernobyl) and Neil Druckmann have created great television that not only honors its video game predecessor but dives deeper into the world it created. Episode 1 with an hour-and-a-half run time has set the tone for a series that I am very compelled to watch. This is first-rate storytelling television.
