The Last Of Us was one of the few series that I am excited for the next season. I saw this series when I was under a lot of mental pressure. I used to forget all the bad events while watching this and was immersed in the story. In fact, it was a good and timely reminder for me: Endure And Survive!

Big fan of the game and an even bigger fan of the TV show 🤗 I love this podcast, it's so good hearing about the background, talking with the creators, hearing about the casting and all of the little bits we learn about the show while it was being filmed 🥰 I think the casting of Joel and Ellie was spot on (not to take away from Troy or Ashley's game versions who are amazing) BUT Bella Ramsey and Pedro Pascal bring a whole new vibe and I am living for it 😁 Bring on Season 2. I hope the podcast continues even after the first season finishes during filming of season 2 and throughout season 2 🤞🏼
