When it comes to video games, The Last of Us parts
So when it came to the HBO adaptation, I was dubious. Video games that get adapted into movies and TV shows can fare badly, and the story of the game was too good to see ruined.
But... surprise... the show is actually quite decent, even though they've deviated a bit from the game. And nowhere was that more apparent than the third episode, which expands on the game in a surprisingly good way...
All I can say is that I hope Nick Offerman, Murray Bartlett, and the writers are remembered come award season.
If you're not watching, it might be worth a look.
