In this back to back premiere episode we start by covering HBO Max’s The Last of Us, a TV adaptation of the landmark 2013 video game. The series asks what would happen if a parasitic fungi evolved to infect humanity, with the chilling prediction, “We’d lose.” The squad has a range of different histories with the original video game, from complete strangers to the franchise to having completed it on hard mode (as Norm likes to remind us). Could this be the best video game adaptation to date? Tune in every week to find out!
Next week revisit a squad favorite, Amazon Prime Video’s The Legend of Vox Machina to cover the season 2 premiere episodes. The Critical Role campaign is back and the stakes are higher than ever for our band of lovable misfits. If you’re like us and struggle to schedule a consistent Dungeons and Dragons night, this is the show for you to scratch that itch.
If you stick around after the credits, you might get a tip for the end of the world…
