And one other fast observe for you The Final of Us veterans. The HBO present follows the broad beats of the general story from the sport, and is kind of trustworthy in tone and spirit. However hopefully it received’t come as a shock that this isn’t a beat-by-beat, line-by-line adaptation of the video games. Neil, Craig and the manufacturing crew took this chance to weave in new characters, themes, and places — solely the place they felt true to the characters and the world, the “soul” of The Final of Us. Generally this was achieved to increase on concepts solely briefly explored within the video games, or as a result of it higher served the narrative construction of an episodic present.
However relaxation assured, The Final of Us stays true to the soul of the video games. I hope you’ll be a part of us tonight, and positively tell us what you suppose!
