Each week, Ben Hopkinson looks back at what’s happened the past 7 days and what was trending on Twitter with the Maritime Hashtag Minute.
This week’s #MaritimeHashtagMinute was #TheLastOfUs, the new HBO/Sky Atlantic series taking the world by storm. Based on the PlayStation game by Naughty Dog, new episodes are released very early on Monday mornings and we are currently on episode two of nine. View the Tweets below:
People that didn’t play the game will never understand the significance of this clip. Nothing was worse than having to reload your revolver in the middle of fighting a clicker #TheLastOfUs pic.twitter.com/YKokHcjXLw— Barrett Fontana (@bFonz) January 23, 2023
This right here is what explains why Ellie is the way she is in part 2. The worst and saddest thing Joel taught Ellie is to not talk about feelings or how things affect us. He kept on walking and didn’t say a word. #TheLastOfUs #TLOU #TheLastOfUsHBO pic.twitter.com/yP99ZSjpW5— Katie loves Ellie 🥰 (@katie__kate_) January 23, 2023
Episode 2 of #TheLastofUs is incredible. The show isn't reinventing the video game or small screen apocalypse storytelling but it doesn't need to when the execution is this good. Capturing all the terror and emotional depth of playing the game, and the casting is pitch perfect.— John Squires (@FreddyInSpace) January 23, 2023
