switched on Sunday night 4.7 million viewers , making the series the third highest-grossing HBO debut. Just like the milestone above, HBO has considered both traditional television viewers and streaming subscribers.
Game and series in comparison
An extensive comparison video arrived a few hours ago. Attention is drawn here to the similarities, differences and other details.
Probably the most relevant deviation: Instead of breathing in spores, people become infected through tendrils. The actors shouldn’t be seen wearing a gas mask all the time. How these tendrils spread, you can already in the Opening Credits see.
The scene when Joel was given the watch by his daughter was elaborately recreated. Only minor differences can be seen here. However, Sarah repaired the clock in the series while it was purchased new in-game. In addition, the vehicle scene after the outbreak is also very similar to the original. Hardly any sequence has been reproduced in such detail. They parted ways immediately after the accident.
The same applies to Sarah’s death. This event runs exactly like it does on the console, except for one detail. And Joel also gets a bullet.
Several additional scenes
When the actual action starts 20 years later, the viewers get to see some preview scenes. None of these were in the template.
A major change: On PlayStation, Tess headshots Robert. In the HBO adaptation, he is again murdered by Fireflies during a shootout.
The only actor to play her part in both the game and the adaptation is Merle Dandridge. Why it is like thatexplained Craig Mazin recently.
