The Last Of Us is based on an extremely popular video game, and was adapted for TV by Craig Mazin, a.k.a. the creator of the excellent Chernobyl and the author of many, many, many informative tweets about what a terrible and universally loathed person Ted Cruz has been since college (they were freshman year roommates at Princeton). So I support ALL his endeavors, as you might imagine. I’m curious how this will be, but I also don’t know if I want to watch; while there are not zombies in its post-apocalyptic universe that I know of, there are “cannibalistic creatures infected by a mutated fungus,” which sounds awfully similar. Anyway! Behold the premiere. Several big-name actors in the show didn’t come, like Anna Torv, Murray Bartlett, and Melanie Lynskey, but I believe Melanie is off shooting Yellowjackets and that is an urgent use of her time as far as I’m concerned.
