HBO has a knack of coming up with game-changing TV shows! 'True Detective', 'Game Of Thrones', 'Chernobyl', 'Succession' and 'House of the Dragon' are some of the recent examples. And looks like the platform has another iconic show in their locker -- 'The Last Of Us'. The show premiered on Sunday (Monday morning in India) and both fans and critics have been bowled over.
Just one episode has premiered of 'The Last Of Us' and fans are already calling it the best video game adaptation of all time.
The show is based on the highly-acclaimed video game developed by Naughty Dog.
The first episode titled 'When You're Lost in the Darkness' is 1 hour 21 minutes long, and the fans were made to experience variety of emotions throughout the run-time.
Ever since the episode dropped, fans have been raving about it on Twitter and here are some of the best reactions:

Y'all know it's my life goal to make truly great video game movies & this proves it's possible. Sets a whole new standard for adaptations that I hope other creators & studios follow, while having the greatest "zombie outbreak" ever put to film. pic.twitter.com/DlP2Xi0CH5
