Episode 2 of TLoU...hey! They used
Spoiler
Abby
's theme! :o



They actually used two versions of this one in this episode, the first time when Joel is taping up Tess's ankle on the rooftop, and the second at the very end of course. I sort of called that they would likely borrow from TLoUII's music once I knew they were using the game music. I'm trying to keep an eye out for new music by Santaolalla as well.

Anyone else love how fast they're moving forward with the story? They could have done what literally everyone else does with source material like this and padded it out to where this could have been 5-6 episodes (coughcoughTheWalkingDeadcough) to milk the IP for all its worth, but they seem committed to adapting the whole game into one season, paced like one long movie.

This was another great episode, basically one long setpiece but that worked really well; plenty of time for the atmosphere to seep in and the suspense and tension to build. And the scene in the flooded hotel confirms Ramsey is a perfect Ellie (I was one of the skeptics when I first heard they were cast).

"Is it everything you hoped for?"
"It has its moments. You can't deny the view though."

Oh my goodness they're doing

I’m still liking the show but not as impressed as everyone else seems to be looking at post ep discussions on Reddit. My boyfriend likes it a lot more than me too. Didn’t like the changes to Tess’ scene and I’m still not that convinced by Bella Ramsey. Everyone is raving about the hotel and sandwich scenes and I thought they were kinda bad (in terms of her acting and vibe). The clickers were nice but I don’t really feel as terrified by them as I do in game—but I’m a scaredy cat playing horror games and just shrug at films lol.

Loved the opening scene though.


Edit: we were going through game vs show comparisons on YouTube and man, it really shows how poor the show is compared to the game. The show is ok and I’m trying to enjoy it as its own thing but the game is just perfect.

The show is good. Bella Ramsey was a horrible miscast. Seasons 2 onward could be a real fiasco.

Justin Rowland has been fired from Rick & Morty, which will continue without him. I don't know if I care enough to go back to watching the show again or not, but this is excellent news. A rich and extremely influential cishet white man actually managed to FAFO. Hopefully he'll be dropped from his Hulu shows as well. They don't hand out domestic violence felonies on a whim. That guy is some bad news, not to mention the groomer allegations.
