Although the video game franchise narrative The Last of Us is widely recognized as one of the best games of the last generation, some users were annoyed by the TV adaptation that details one of the areas least explored by the game’s creators.
ATTENTION: This article may contain spoilers of the game and the HBO series.
Episode 3 of HBO adaptation, Long Time, realized what the creators of the series talked about their intentions to highlight more human parts of the narrative-end more than in games.
However, even with the story of Bill (Nick Offer man) and Frank (Murray Bartlett) having been positively received by expert critics and the vast majority of the series audience, a portion seems to have been angry with the adaptation.
The main sites that ing criticisms for audiovisual products, IMDB and Metacritic, observed an aupt drop in the series of the third episode of the series.


By clicking to see all the criticisms of these sites, we see an abundant amount of criticism with notes 0, which considerably lowers the overall average.
Here are the comparison of notes from the 1st to the 3rd episode in Metacritic and IMDB, respectively:
In addition to the remarkable reduction, it is also possible to analyze that the third episode has almost double criticism of the first and second in Metacritic.
At IMDB, the episode focused on Bill and Frank received more than triple criticism compared to the first two chapters.
As with when an audiovisual product is bombarded with negative criticism, notes 0 are accompanied by short opinions, with many people expressing their discontent and anger at producers’ creative decisions.
To understand the reason for the sudden hatred in the face of the new episode, we have separated some of the most repeated comments:
Most of these comments were made between January 29 and Feuary 2, and each has between 26 and 40 likes it that leads us to believe that it was a virtually coordinated action.
By IMDB, it is also possible to see that the average assessment between the female audience for this episode was three tenths larger than the previous ones.
Among men, most on the platform, there was a drop of 1.2 points.
The focus on decreasing the episode and series grade by Metacritic seems to have been greater-it may be related to the fact that the site is simpler than the IMDB.

This is not the only time the franchise The Last of Us suffers hate attacks.
After the release of the second game, which portrays Ellie’s relationship with the character Dina, the production was also bombarded by criticism reinforcing that there was sealing and that the story of the game had got lost.
