    When you’re lost in the darkness, look for this pod. Ben Lindbergh and Daniel Chin answer 10 questions about what you need to know before watching HBO’s adaptation of Naughty Dog’s ‘The Last of Us’ (02:02). In their mostly spoiler-free conversation, they discuss what makes this video game so special and significant that it's being adapted, if you need to play the game before watching the show, the perfect casting of Joel and Ellie, as well as why a TV show is a better adaptation choice for the game over a movie. Then they answer the biggest question of all: Will this end the curse of bad video game adaptations?

J. Oatmon ,

Great

The Midnight Boys is by far my favourite TV show podcast (such vibes, such a killer squad) and the addition of the deep dives - those ladies are wicked too. I found this because of Andor and it's all the best Andor content, and I'm interested to see what they have to say about other properties :)

Five Stars - House of R

My only criticism is that the eps need to be longer. 3.5 hours? Should be 4 tbh.

Here for Joanna.

Joanna is one of the best, smartest, thoughtful and empathic reviewers around. I have followed her from other podcasts as she adds a depth to TV that I can’t find elsewhere. Her knowledge of marvel, GOT and LOTR is academic. And the joy that she and Mallory bring to the podcasts they do together makes you feel like you are sitting in on a conversation with your smartest and most bubbly friends. It is warm and inviting, makes you want to put out snacks and drinks so they never stop talking.
