What made it so popular?
the scenario is pretty kino
HBO made and promoted it. It's based on existing popular source material.
>hbo budget and marketing
hmmmm i wonder why
what the actual fuck is this disgusting face, i hope she kills herself and gets replaced by someone who actually looks female at least
>What made it so popular?
all the threads being made about it on Cinemaphile 🙂
This IP didn't become good until TLOU Part II, so as it stands now it's just normie hype making it popular.
Here let me be the first (You) to your well crafted and not at all transparent bait. Take my upboat good sir :^) I would appreciate if you could pls respond with an endless barrage of copes seethes dilates and chuds, thanking you in advance good sir!
What part of that post can be construed as bait, retard? Think before you post.
Yeah good point, other than the fact that everything you posted was a disingenuous lie that you were fully aware of, I don't know what made me confuse it for bait.
Part II killed the franchise, so much so that they had to re release Part I as the early stage attempts of getting the audience back on side. They will revise the tv series to do the same, before coming out with Part III that has almost zero to do with the pre-existing game. Again, your post epitomises the notion of being disingenuous and you are fully aware. I'm actually glad I've responded to you enough times to assure your weak ass bait wasn't properly taken in the way you wanted, but also now I can freely continue to completely destroy any pathetic attempt you piss out to try and rationalise your bait. @ me you lil bitch.
>doubling down on the schiz
Most people with taste agree that the first game was nothing special regardless of their opinion of the sequel.
>Most people with taste agree
And here we see the goalposts are shifting.
1 - You do not have "good" taste, or at least what would generally constitute as "good" in a subjective realm of discussion. I can prove that to you if you so wish to continue this conversation.
2 - You don't have any friends or anyone to talk to, and the majority of the internet disagrees with your underpinning point, so who the fuck are you talking about when you say "most people"?
Alright, tell us what makes the first game so special instead of flipping out for no reason.
Nope. The burden is on you to defend your retarded claims. I will not be suckered into a dumbass debate about why a critically revered video game that swept just about every single award it was capable of, is still talked about over a decade later, has spawned an HBO television series that is currently dominating the zeitgeist, and is the subject matter of the very thread you are visiting is "special". You make a controversial statement, you back it up. That is how these things work you baboon.
Also I know this will be hard for your zoomer brain to compute, since you most likely believe that the slightest hint of a disagreement is the equivalent of a sparking a family blood feud, but I am not flipping out by pointing out just exactly how retarded you are.
5 star trolling dude, good job. And I mean it. I won't be replying anymore but I will admit you trolled me hard.
Yeah yeah, I accept your concession. Just lurk moar newfriend. You'll be able to manufacture some bait that doesn't just end in you getting BTFO over and over again eventually.
Lol, holy fuck you have brain worms
Is it not? Again, burden of proof etc etc... Or are you going to pretend that the show you are currently on the internet discussing isn't madly popular right now, and doesn't have anything to do with a lot of the social values/dilemmas that currently dominate the western culture?
>my post apocalyptic gay walking simulator zombie tv show is literally changing the face of the planet and urging humanity into a golden age of prosperity and unity, it brings all human beings together in a utopia of equality and bounty
Yes, I'm the one with brain rot... not the person who is quoting absolutely no one and projecting feelings I don't have for a show on to me.
I'm not massive on TLOU tv series... but to pretend it isn't the most popular thing out right now is another lie.
I'm not the guys you replied to but,
do you only define what is good and what is not by what the majority of the population think?
And before you reach any conclusions I am just neutral on TLOU, games or show.
Has HBO released the streaming numbers?
No but the Neilson rating are low
They get beat out by the real housewives and home town and barley make it in the top 10 in their time slot.
I liked the episode but it would have made more sense if he wasn't gay and he found a woman in the hole. Him being gay was off putting and made zero sense and was just kind of visually wrong. It didn't make sense or work. It sucked all the emotional impact out of the episode.
Yes the shilled to shit show isn’t popular
If it was so much energy wouldn’t go into convincing people it is
This is now hbo business model
They make shit and heavily shill it as being popular to try and convince npcs to watch the trash!
>It defends a streaming show for free on annoyomous image board
These bots are getting better I'm surprised you didn't end with "and watch the last of us, now streaming on HBO max!!"
holy shit u mad
>Part 2 killed the franchise
This. I knew a lot of normies who said nope this isn't good I'm out. After loving 1 and playing 2. 2 might be honestly the worst plot in video game history.
if you thought it was bait you wouldn't respond
Wrong. I responded with an anti-bait post originally that detailed your/his post for what it was.
Now that you/him have doubled down on trying to defend your retarded stance like "I akchuallee meaaaann ittt!!" I can continue to comprehensively blow you the fuck out on a subject you clearly don't have any genuine understanding of.
Gloves on, you have taken my bait good sir.
you need help
Don't worry the tranny will keep fucking up this thread it shows up in any last of us thread and starts seething over the 2nd game. This proving what a pile of crap it is.
misery porn will never be good
still made the IP more interesting than it was before
It just made it uglier and more miserable, like its audience
i especially enjoyed the complete waste of all potential
>This IP didn't become laughably terrible crap till last of us 2
Fixed that for you
normalfags literally only watch trash reality TV, euphoria, and streaming slop where a gruff older white man is tasked with taking care of a child
never heard mention of that show literally 1 time IRL , only on Cinemaphile for hunter memes, didnt even know Zendaya was in it until i looked it up once on imdb the other day
It didn´t listen to gamers, so it became a good adaptation.
The media fell over itself to promote it. Constantly and incessantly.
Strange almost as if they were paid to do so
it's good and has a well know source material
Marketing but it will be forgotten until next season of zombie show
>What made it so popular?
>and don't give me that "it was good, people liked it" answer. I want the real truth!
I'm not even trolling but this shit was pretty mid, no? I finished the wire last month and it was amazing and I finally get why you fags always chat about it but it made me wonder why HBO can't make anything else on that sort of level
Different employees, different eras, different audiences. Sadly all for the worse.
It really seems like good writing is no longer important, people just prefer pretty visuals. You'd think there would be at least one company that prides itself on the writing but that doesn't seem to be the case.
I think good writing still exists. I just think long gone are the days of establishment trust. ie HBO used to be a stamp of quality approval, you knew all good writers wanted to work there, and the devs wanted good writers to work for them - all for the mutual benefit of them/the audience. Ergo the shows all hit a certain quality barometer even if they weren't for you. It's not like that anymore. It's far more individualised.
The problem is they hire blacks, gays, women, and trannys not based on talent or merit but if they check off a box and then they let these mutants have at an existing IP. And then act shocked when they make the ninja turtles binary gender fluid, and april o Neil a they/them. And the plot is shredder (a woman with an afro) trying to destroy all the worlds dilators. And then when normal people say what the fuck is this? This is stupid. The people involved in the show cry and blame bigotry. It's all a joke and why current media is so fucking awful.
Thats all true but nothing in this guys
its woke because they couldnt show bill or frank in a bad light as they are in the game. also making joel + tommy mexicans, also blackbitch from true detective race swap, making that kid deaf, inserting christianity to the pedocannibal cult (theyd literally never do this with Judaism in any tv series or movie that western audiences were allowed to see without being jailed)
list is anywhere near as egregious
HBO marketing. You think normies won't watch something if HBO tells them it's gonna be super good?
>shes in front of a big watch
damn that's deep
>Listening to some sports radio guy
>"You know I didn't care for the movie watchmen but man that show was awesome!! I wish they'd made more of that show!"
I loathe NPCs.
They created a context where watching it was a social statement in support of the normal bullshit (gender shit, gay shit, nonwhite shit) and the retarded masses are it up. Many such cases.
I saw the videogame finale after the show's one and it's incredible they literally had the same lines. Terrible adaptation, terrible superficial writing. What the fuck were they thinking?
Pedro Pascal, zombies and high values, it was embraced by the people who got out off by walking dead years ago
What makes every shitty videogame popular, children.
Daily reminder that there are people out there that claim Undertale is a good game because of peer pressure from 9 yr olds.
Astroturf, also IP
Because it was actually pretty good
I haven't seen it. Is there any woke or sjwshit on the show?
I'm glad you're asking the really important question. But no, there isn't, unless you consider women and poc existing "woke or sjwshit".
none of that made the show worse, if the cannibal guy posing as a pastor to control his group said anything it was more about religion in general than Christianity to anyone with an above room-temp iq.
>making that kid deaf
because the games especially part ii have such a huge focus on ""accessibility""" instead of writing a good story they spend like 30% of the budget on adding in cheats for retards to use
the game part of part 2 is actually fun imo but yeah I agree the story and characters suck, idk what that has to do with the show being super woke or not though
>also making joel + tommy mexicans
They're from Texas. Basically the same thing.
>In the game it's implied bill might be gay
>"Hey let's show bill fucking some other dude!!"
Goddamn it druckman you just can't help yourself
nah hes gay in the game but hes so insufferable frank runs away then hangs himself when he got infected, leaving a note saying how shitty bill is
blackwashing established white characters is literally "woke"
You can be disingenuous and call it "poc existing" but you know it's not about it
Yes that is the show
Nothing else heavily promoted to watch.
>muh heckin little gay girl power
that's it, normalfags have been completely brainwashed by globohomo
>Pedro 10/10 acting
>Some decent banter/comic writing in early episodes
>The world building
>Post-apocalyptic visuals are probably the best so far on TV
>Overt political commentary
>Overt diversity hires for the sake of diversity
>Both last episodes
It's laughable that this has a 9.2 on IMDB, it's essentially Walking Dead + and is a 7.5 at best.
Pedro might be a homosexual but he is really good in anything I've seen him in
one of the best portrayals of
>le strong depressed silent type
I've seen in a long time
I liked the movie with Nicholas Cage, most actors get mogged by cage going crazy, but Pedro managed to stand his ground and both seemed to be having a great time
Nailed it. They couldn't help themselves and just do a shot for shot remake of the game. Had to show how gay bill was for no reason, had to make up a group of raiders led by a fat white woman, had to show Ellie and her gay black friend flirt with each other through a mall (the dlc nobody liked or wanted) hired a pale, disfigured goblin to play Ellie, and all the race swapping, it was a joke. And so super popular I don't know anyone who is watching or talking about it.
The cellphone told people to watch it because other people were watching it so to not miss out people started to watch it. No one thinks about anything anymore, they just follow vague trends that seep into their consciousness subliminally.
This. Notice how EVERY new movie or show is super popular, and a critical hit. And then it just vanishes overnight? But wow is it popular and cool and you totally need to watch it.
What makes something popular then? Do people have to keep talking about them forever?
Literally just the gay romance episodes. Libtards are very easily manipulated.
That's also the only reason you don't like it though
>Libtards are very easily manipulated.
No, even if ep3 was about normal couple I would rate it the same. It would still be boring and unnecessary.
Wouldn't say it was boring and I thought it added to the world-building and was a good break from the pervious episodes.
Also what makes an episode necessary? Is there a line or is it just
The only world-building part was the few comments Joel made about the spread of the outbreak. It's funny when people defend this episode on the internet they always point to things that have nothing to do with the Bill and Frank flashback i.e. the main focus of the episode. It's always "we know how they got a car" or "we know where Ellie got the gun from".
Isn't it funny how the best parts of the gay romance episode are the ones that have nothing to do with the gay romance? Really makes ya think
>Isn't it funny how the best parts of the gay romance episode are the ones that have nothing to do with the gay romance?
Gonna need a source on that, their relationship was obviously the best part of the episode, you really think people only enjoyed it because now we know how they got a car?
That's the only thing I heard people on twitter say to defend it. If you have another opinion that's fine
Sounds like people that have a problem with that episode being "woke" but still enjoyed it and don't want to admit it
Those replies were in response to someone who called it boring and pointless. They sounded like typical libtards.
relentlessly shilled everywhere
good first episode
unironically the gay sex, I wish I could fuck Nick Offerman's sweaty butthole
>What made it so popular?
Two specific episodes made it impossible for critics to give it anything short of GOAT status
only genderqueer and lesbian teens liked ep7, it was obnoxious
its just like most of the rest of the show, directly lifted from the game, with all the combat / actual gameplay parts removed
There is a reason is was a DLC content
Good writing. Republicans will never understand.
Show had too many naggers. That's why. America is a country full of nagger loving naggers.
Poojeet shills and cash paments to entertainment news
You mean like watchman popular
Based on the Neilson ratings it’s not popular
Barely anyone watches live TV anymore grandpa. Same day HBO max viewers had the finale at 8.2 million viewers, that's season 6 Game of Thrones numbers on its FIRST season
>b-b-b-but HBO is lying about its viewership numbers and renewed it early even though WBDisco is currently cost cutting like crazy and canceling everything at the drop of the hat because DA israeliteS
That not true as most people still have cable not only that but hbo is involved in a scandal right now over misrepresenting streaming subscriptions numbers and defrauding investors.
Yes I'm sure in an era of costcutting and frequent cancellations HBO is just losing money on TLOU because they NEED to show gay sex on screen as part of a israeli psyop
>Spoon feed me
How about do some research
I think you are forgetting hbo is so shit they just got sold to a a reality tv company discovery +
and tlou was already in production at the time of the takeover
So while shills and hbo act like their supper successful the fact they got sold betrays that assertion
Also discovery + has been clear about its vision for hbo going forward and it’s not looking very woke
According to hbo sir
But most all that had to come from streaming which is convenient as they average less than a million views on telecasts
Highly sus sir
>8.2 million viewers
>but HBO is lying about its viewership numbers
literally yes. highly fucking plausible. I work with analytics for a similar service and it's omega-bega easy to fudge the numbers. Generally users are called viewers. You separate between
These are all categorized under "viewers", legally. This is why silicon valley apps can say
>"We have 1 million users"
which triggers angel investors, but in reality they have maybe 10k active users which is where the money is at. But bozos like you and angel investors don't know the diff, so you get scammed:) It's ok though it's funding my lifestyle so all good keep doin what ur doin my man. Speak truth to power!
100% Pedro Pascal. No one gives a shit about Bella Ramsay except for terminally online leftist losers who thinks that hyping this Bong monstrosity is "heckin owning le chuds".
I honestly have no idea. A friend made we watch a few episodes and i thought it was really boring.
>single handedly ruins your multi million dollar franchise
Uh oh drucky made a wooopsie
wonder if s oy losers swallowed joels death if abby was a dude
>overrated leftist woke garbage hyped by retards who have shit tastes in movies and tv shows
Dunno why everyone loves eating this shit show. I think it's another overhyped leftist garbage about some zombies. Only Pedro Pascal carried this shit.
I hope that in the next season they don’t fuck up the pacing like the did in part 2. Cause lord knows if they kill off Joel as early as they did in the game the show will probably tank.
normies are eating this show up. literally the new game of thrones lol everyone at work mentions this TLOU
