Twenty years after modern civilization has been destroyed, Joel, a hardened survivor, is hired to smuggle Ellie, a 14-year-old girl, out of an oppressive quarantine zone. What starts as a small job soon becomes a brutal, heartbreaking journey, as they both must traverse the United States and depend on each other for survival.

The Last of Us Review

Launching with its first episode on Sunday, January 15th on HBO Max, ‘The Last of Us’ represents the latest successful translation of a video game title to another medium.Of course, the source material––game creator Neil Druckmann is deeply involved in the show as an executive producer––offers a solid base, with its rich, cinematic aspect and compelling characters.

But then, that’s also a risk; as a bestselling title with a massive fan base, there are very high standards to be met.Fortunately, the show should impress almost anyone who has ever picked up a controller to help Joel and Ellie on their mission.But what if you’ve never so much as passed by a TV where someone is playing the game?

In the first episode, that information is delivered by a scientist (John Hannah) on a 1968 TV talk show, outlining the way in which a determined fungal infection could burn
