HBO’s ‘The Last of Us’ Gives Us Extra Time With an Important Character That Feels Precious

Nico (Sarah Miller) and Joel (Pedro Pascal) share an intense moment in 'The Last of Us'

The premiere of HBO’s series adaptation of The Last of Us managed to do what the 2013 game of the same name did: emotionally wreck audiences within moments. That emotional destruction all started with the game’s prologue, and for the most part, the HBO adaptation from Craig Mazin and Neil Druckmann did the same. But where the show thrived was in the time we got to spend with protagonist Joel Miller’s daughter, Sarah Miller (Nico Parker).

Part of the reason why The Last of Us became a hit, as a game, was because of the cinematic nature of the story it was telling, primarily in the prologue of the game, so when it came to the adaptation, that was going to be both an advantage and disadvantage. How do you make a TV adaptation of a video game known for its cinematic nature appealing for those who are already fans of the game while still staying true to it?
