My worry is they do a Walking Dead on it and draw it out because it is so popular. 
Id never heard of the game before. So Im wondering is this likely to go a set length of seasons if they stick to the game. Or could they drag the crap out of it with 6 or 8 seasons because the ratings are good. 

I'd be almost certain this won't run for more than maybe 3/4 series. There have been 2 games so far and the creators have already stated that series 1 follows the plot of the first game 
So if they're plowing ahead and doing half the story in the first season it shouldn't be dragged out. I reckon 3 seasons tops unless they make a third game.

So there’s now a breed of super monsters just interested in ripping heads off? Any back story to this or are we just to assume they’ve evolved?

Fairly traumatic episode but very good. 

Anybody else considering prepping?

Ellie spoke about them in an earlier episode. Bloaters. They've been infected for years

I want to give this a go as the first game was one of my all time favourites.

But I played the 2nd one when it came out and it's a horrific piece of sh*t (storyline wise anyway). If they are faithful to the source material then I'm just setting myself up to be pissed off down the line.

I would just tell you now that you'll probably be annoyed. I think they are laying a lot of groundwork for Part II (which I thought was great but suppose those arguments for and against the game have been made ad nauseum). It still feels like the first game although as I mentioned in a previous post I think Joel is a different character than the game at this point, especially after the last episode. But I've seen people who despised Part II say they enjoyed that change so who knows actually, I can never really tell what you folks will like or not LOL

I really enjoyed episode 6 apart from one bit which I thought was corny and OTT cheesy, but it didn't really effect anything about the story it just took me out of the episode for a min. Think Pedro Pascal and Bella Ramsey are doing an amazing job. 

Episode 5 has been the best episode so far imo, I'm excited/dreading seeing what they've come up with for the final three episodes

Yes enjoying it still. 

Standout moments for me still the very first scene in the 70s TV studio and the scene with the scientist in Jakarta. 

Am enjoying the lack of binging too and actually having to wait a week for a new episode!

Are people still watching it? The episodes are still good but it seems to have lost it's way slightly. Every episode has it's own story which seems to be taking away from the overall story of the series. The lack of zombies seems to be doing this as well but that's probably the issue with it being set 20 odd years after the event.

Doesn't feel like it's lost its way at all, pretty much mimicking the game! Still enjoying it very much

Agreed re Ellie's back story, filler., In general I think the whole thing could have been a couple of episodes shorter, twas a bit slow at times. Its hard to see how they wrap it all up now in one episode? I assume they will leave it open for another series.

Pretty sure they’ve already said there’ll be another series

I wouldn't call it filler. It's background. And it's lifted entirely from a massive part of the game. I think it was an extra downloadable segment if memory serves! I liked it anyways

Fair enough, I'm not familiar with the game its based on. I just thought the back story could have been woven in to the story rather than making it an entire stand alone episode 7 in a 9 episode series. Twas just odd and took away from the ongoing suspense imo.
