And just like that, The Last of Us season one comes to an end. Join Jim and A.Ron as they discuss your thoughts, theories, and questions with the benefit of having a complete season. From the sketchy Fireflies to the heartwarming giraffe moment, there’s a lot to unpack as we fight to survive with Ellie and Joel one last time.
This is possibly the most dangerous situation Ellie and Joel have been in. As if the world wasn’t already bleak enough, new horrors rise. Cordyceps are the least of your worries in Silver Lake. I know you were yelling at your screen for half of the episode, so join in the Instant Talk and yell about those things with us!
Being a teenager is never easy. It’s worse when you’re in FEDRA school and your best friend disappeared for three weeks. In this episode we take a step into Ellie’s past and her relationship with Riley. Though this episode takes a break from the main action, it is by no means devoid of thrills.
It’s three months later from the last episode and we rejoin Ellie and Joel in Wyoming. Craig Mazin takes an opportunity this episode to build emotional bonds and remind us what is at the heart of this adventure.
The Last of Us continues to tear our hearts out while delivering its best action scenes in S01E05 “Endure and Survive.” Enjoy the instant take and we’ll reconvene 1 day early this week for the full recap podcast on Monday.
The Instant Talk podcast is our aftershow, with our own quick thoughts about the episode followed by an interactive chat discussion with our fans, live on YouTube. The first half is released as the Instant Take podcast. The audio from the interactive section is released as a premium podcast just for our club members.
We take a bit of a detour this week to spend some time with Joel’s acquaintance, Bill. He’s a prepper… excuse me, a “survivalist”, whose subterranean bunker is buried only slightly deeper than his heart. Join us for the instant take to hear our first impressions of The Last of Us – S01E03 – Long Long Time.
“Infected” was Neil Druckmann’s television directorial debut and it was an adventure. Pedro Pascal and Bella Ramsey give off strong Mando and Grogu vibes amidst the chaos. Watch out for the tendrils as we dissect the latest episode of The Last of Us.
Did you see that first episode? Well so did we and we’re here to give our initial reactions to it. Join us for a spoiler-free conversation about how we thought the beginning of The Last of Us held up as a TV adaptation. We’ll be back on Tuesday with a breakdown of the episode and a more well-considered discussion.
Let’s play “Cool or Cringe”! The glowing table? Cool! Daemon singing to the dragon? Neutral. The sapphire eye? Cool! A.Ron and Jim doing Otto impressions. Cringe. It all comes to a fiery finale with plenty to look forward to in next season. Prove you are leal, listen to this episode.
