Andi and Lise jumped into the current zeitgeist and watched the first episode of the first season of The Last of Us on HBO Max, the TV series adapted from the video game of the same name (by Naughty Dog and Sony Interactive Entertainment, released in 2013). The storyline involves a post-apocalyptic U.S. in which survivors live in totalitarian walled cities while a fungus-ravaged world (Cordyceps, in case you wondered which fungus) outside the walls infects humans, who prey on the non-infected. Joel (Pedro Pascal), a survivor who engages in black market smuggling in Boston, is tasked with taking teenager Ellie (Bella Ramsey) across the U.S. Gripping, intense, brutal. But the story-telling is amazing. So…one and done? One and fun? Or One and One More? Find out!

Shout-outs: Lise is trying to avoid Twitter, which is an even worse hellscape now, so she put an app to play Sudoku on her phone, which provides a nice respite during the day and doesn’t generate anxiety. Andi is finding fluffy niceness in the cozy mystery series on BritBox, Shakespeare and Hathaway, which follows a couple of mis-matched private investigators in Stratford-upon-Avon. More info HERE; watch on Acorn (DVD), BritBox, and Amazon Prime (S1).
