Biting into ‘The Last of Us’ Finale & Looking Back at ‘The Mandalorian’ S2 on The ‘Verse!

The finale of HBO’s The Last of Us is finally here and what an incredible nine weeks it’s been. The squad is here to discuss what we loved, debate the guy wrenching moral question at the heart of the episode, and reflect on the show’s video game origins. We called it at episode one and with the finale, we’re solidifying The Last of Us as the best video game adaptation to date.

We finish off our stint in P-squared (Pedro Pascal, get it??) heaven with some Blindspot coverage of The Mandalorian season two. That means we’re reviewing this season through the eyes of a Star Wars Padawan in conversation with lifelong fans. Check out last week’s episode to hear our coverage of season one and stay tuned next week to hear us talk about the latest episodes in season three which is currently airing on Disney+.

If you stick around after the credits, we play a little game we like to call “Add a Pedro!”

Talk to us on Twitter @TheVerseCast or Instagram, we’d love to hear your thoughts. Then leave us a follow because we also post news and announcements about the pod and collect listener questions.

For over a decade he has reviewed and written about entertainment through publications including Awards Circuit and Screen Radar. He has conducted interviews with some of the best in the business - learning more about them, their projects and their crafts. He is a graduate of the RIT film program. You can find him on Twitter and Letterboxd as @FilmSnork – we don’t know why the name, but he seems to be sticking to it.
