506: "Please Hold to My Hand" (TLOU S1E4)

2/7/2023
Time flies like an arrow. Fruit flies like a banana. And we kinda loved that Joel and Ellie bonding over puns in this ep, and all the great video-gamey fights, and that the show continues to surprise us and change things up. We also had a few quibbles, and an extra-long Game Talk segment. Enjoy! Pedro Pascal’s excellent SNL monologue: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QsYGlZkevEg Please tell your friends who love The Last of Us about us We’re easy to find. Just send ‘em to...

At last, it’s the first episode of The Last of Us, and Ben, Lucy, and Jason are on deck to talk it out. What an incredible adaptation of an amazing game!

So great to welcome back our friend (and past Comic Talk host) Derek back for one final comparison of The Walking Dead comic to the show.

What a fantastic end to The Walking Dead. Lucy and I were so moved by it. At times thrilling, horrifying, sad, touching, and even awe-inspiring.

Some fricken’ great zombie action and tension this episode. Other great moments too - and also some giant nitpicks, why not. Do you think Judith is going to live? (We do.) Will any of the other characters die? Do you think Rick will show up in the finale? Just a few more days until the end….

Welp, now we know why JDM was so put off that they pre-announced the Negan spinoff. This ep would have been a lot more tense if we didn’t know Negan would survive. But it was still pretty great. We especially liked the stuff with Eugene’s trial. Two more episodes left!!!
