I watched the first episode. I'm undecided so i will watch 1-2 more episodes. If it turns into a walking dead type of show, I'm out. BBoth of my sons absolutely loved the first game and said it was the best storyline ever in a game.

I really want to get started, but my husband has been dragging his feet. Zombie apocalypse plus Pedro Pascal? Score! I may just start it without him and shame him.

Loving it, I did not play the games but am familiar with the story and why you might not like the second one as much.
The imagery of the cities in the show is more awe inspiring than walking dead or cinematic zombie movies, enjoying the slow burn.

The first one was great... haven't watched the second one. I've been waiting for the Mandalorian... so this is perfect as he's in this too!

I mainly liked the second episode and will continue to watch. I fast forwarded through the main monster scene though - just not interested in that. I think I will continue to watch via recorded programs so I can fast forward those scenes. win/win.

I watched the 2nd one too... thought it was great!

I didn't realize it was a game... we only have an Xbox and a Switch. My days of having every single game system are now over.

Lol-- The fact we only have an Xbox and my husband can't play the game is why he's been silently boycotting. He's mad he can't play the game.

We finally watched the first two episodes, and wow, it's incredible so far. Great acting, and creepy as heck, especially after all we've experienced the last few years with Covid. Our daughter is hooked too. I hope it can keep up this quality through the whole season.

After a rewatch of all 3 episodes so far:

The first two episodes are pretty good. Of all the zombie apocalypse movies and series' I've seen, this is probably the best one. If zombie apocalypses aren't your cup of tea, these might change your mind or they might not.

But episode 3. Hooooooly [censored]. Everybody owes it to themselves to watch episode 3, even if you have no intention of ever watching the first two episodes. Episode 3 is going to win every award in existence.

Have a box of tissues at the ready.
