The adaptation of Naughty Dog’s game, “The Last of Us”, has received widespread praise since its premiere. After the third episode, “Long Long Time”, the accolades have increased even more. Both Swedish and foreign media have deemed it extraordinary and viewers generally agree.

However, the third episode received lower ratings with 4.5 on Metacritic and 7.9 on IMDb compared to the previous two episodes which scored above 9 on IMDb and 8.6 and 8.7 on Metacritic. Viewer opinions are divided, with some calling it one of the greatest TV episodes ever made, while others were disappointed. The deviation from the source material and the risk-taking approach may have contributed to the mixed reviews.

Nevertheless, the series continues to be a success, attracting 6.4 million viewers in the US alone. Nick Offerman and Murray Bartlett’s performances in the latest episode have only added to the momentum, with talk of Emmy nominations for the duo. The show has already been renewed for a second season.
