The Last Of Us is HBO‘s latest sensation. The post-apocalyptic horror-drama is a hit with audiences and critics alike, something especially impressive for a video game adaptation.
The show was already doing well but hit a real tipping point with last Sunday’s Episode 3, which turned the show from a success into a bona fide cultural moment.
The so-called “bottle” episode took a break from the cross-country road trip across infected America to rewind and tell a contained 20-year love story about two people finding each other after the world collapsed.
The surprising, beautiful, heartbreaking one-off caught viewers off-guard in the most amazing way — and has been hailed by many as one of the greatest hours of TV of all time.
