Came close to tapping out in the middle of ep 2. Just upped the speed to 2.5x instead but it's on shaky ground with me now.

Oh? I really enjoyed 1x2. smile

Loved all the post-apocalypse scenery: looked great from up close, and the CGI backgrounds were also done professionally.

that does not say much for a show? don't bother with plot or action or actors just do a Smithsonian  over fly of the  scenary lol

I meant that that makes immersion into the show much easier for me. Thankfully, when they screw this up, the rest of the show is typically pretty bad, too. *cough* La Brea *cough*

Re: The Last of Us [Drama, Adventure, Thriller, Horror]

I liked the first two episodes. Very well produced, great leads... Pena and Olivia rock!

Spoiler

too bad we won't see more Olivia sad But these kind of things make a show great.... sacrifice good leads s always hard

And if you know Boston, the scenery has been set up damn well. I loved all the small details you do recognize when they show the desolate city in ruins.

Sure, the story is slow, but I think well paced. Better than rush from zombie to zombie for a quick thrill.

Re: The Last of Us [Drama, Adventure, Thriller, Horror]

just an opinion. I suspect where all these shows go wrong is they make the apocalypse the story rather than a backdrop like they did in Dark Angel with a basically positive/fun story?

It's either that, or all these shows are 100% right and you are just a tiny minority who wants something different? Hmmmmm...... cool

Re: The Last of Us [Drama, Adventure, Thriller, Horror]

I never knew about the game. And I do like the show. It reminds me of this debate where a book has been turned into a movie. And all the people who read the book hate the show.

And the ones who never read the book loved the show.

I'm so out.  102 was boring AF.  The backstory in China was WAY more interesting than the main story.

Maybe a 6/10.

I found it slow as well. And the backstory threw me a bit.

But I love Pedro Pascal's voice, when I cant sleep I put something he is in on. And I fall asleep. Leonard Nimoy had the same effect on me with In search Of.

And I do enjoy Anna Torv. She was my fav on Fringe https://next-episode.net/fringe. And the kid carries it well. She kinda has the same attitude as Elliot Page in Juno 2007. So I can ignore a slower plot etc.

I would rate this show a 7/10.

Ah... I was already wondering who those 3% are who rated it 4/10 or worse.

Will you keep watching it?  Personally I wouldn't persevere with a show I rated less than 5/10, possibly 6.

2020.  Meh.

The backstory in China

Not everything in the East is China, it was Indonesia big_smile Not counting that they said that, there were massive visual cues that it's not China big_smile

So, in this one are gathered acting superstars and expectations are high smile Tho I personally would watch any garbage in this genre, since I find interesting the premise itself.

9.3 -> 9.2 (and pretty sure IMDb is doing it's "math" hard here big_smile - very similar how this topic got split)
