📺 Finished watching: The Last of Us (2023) on HBO, created by Craig Mazin & Neil Druckmann ★★★★

I don’t always get on board with the latest popular TV crazes, but this one definitely held up. I appreciated that while you certainly felt on edge for every episode, there weren’t as many jump and zombie scares as there could have been. I loved seeing the trust grow between Ellie and Joel, and how they helped each other become less broken over time — even while having to do horrific things.

And, yes, the ending is quite shocking.
