“The last of us It’s an excellent series that perfectly encompasses all the elements that made the video game of the same name so important in its time. It is a deep and existentialist drama, which deals like few others with the survival of the human being in difficult times, as well as the importance of love or decisions in dark times. The work of Neil Druckmann and Craig Mazin was able to transfer Joel and Ellie’s story faithfully and accuratelyor, introducing us to this unlikely couple, whose shattered reality forces them to confront who they are and how far they will go to preserve what gives meaning to their lives,” we conclude in our review of the first season.
