The Last of Two

The second episode of The Last of Us HBO series delivers on all fronts, continuing to prove that it is a must-watch for fans of the video game and newcomers alike. The episode picks up right where the first left off, with Joel and Ellie facing new challenges and dangers as they make their way through the post-apocalyptic world.

Warning: Spoilers Ahead!

One of the biggest surprises in this episode is the introduction of a new character, Lev. Lev is a member of the Fireflies, and his arrival adds a new layer to the story, exploring the different factions and ideologies at play in the post-apocalyptic world. The interactions between Joel, Ellie, and Lev are some of the most compelling moments of the episode, and the trio’s dynamic is sure to keep audiences on their toes.

The incredible acting, with Pedro Pascal and Bella Ramsey delivering powerhouse performances. Their chemistry is electric, and the bond between Joel and Ellie is one of the highlights of the show. The episode also delves deeper into the world of The Last of Us, giving us a glimpse into the lives of other survivors and the challenges they face.

Another highlight of the episode is the action, with some pulse-pounding set pieces that will leave you on the edge of your seat. The show doesn’t shy away from the violence of the world, but it also doesn’t glorify it, striking a delicate balance that keeps the audience invested in the characters and the story.

Its writing is a standout element of the episode, which expertly weaves together action, drama, and moments of levity. Tackling heavy themes, the episode is a powerful exploration of the human spirit and the lengths people will go to survive.

The visuals and special effects are once again top-notch, with the infected continuing to be some of the most frightening creatures on television. The attention to detail in the production design is simply stunning, and the world of The Last of Us feels fully realized and alive.

In conclusion, the second episode of The Last of Us HBO series is a triumph. With a new character, pulse-pounding action, and stunning visuals, the episode is a must-watch for fans of the video game and newcomers alike. The show expertly balances action, drama, and moments of levity to deliver a powerhouse episode that will keep you on the edge of your seat from start to finish. The journey through the post-apocalyptic world of The Last of Us continues to be a thrilling and powerful exploration of the human spirit, and I can’t wait to see where it goes next.

The first of The Last of Us

The Last of Us, the highly-anticipated HBO series based on the popular video game of the same name, has finally premiered and I have to say, I was thoroughly impressed… and also thoroughly scared out of my mind!

The Last Of Us opening credits

The first episode sets the stage for the series, introducing us to the main characters and their world. The show takes place in a post-apocalyptic world overrun by a deadly fungus that turns people into zombies, known as “the infected.” We are immediately thrown into the action as we follow Joel, a grizzled survivor, on a mission to smuggle a young girl named Ellie out of a quarantine zone. And let me tell you, this girl has some serious sass and attitude!

The acting in the series is top-notch, with Pedro Pascal and Bella Ramsey delivering powerful performances as Joel and Ellie, respectively. The chemistry between the two actors is undeniable, and their relationship is one of the highlights of the episode. It’s like watching a buddy-cop movie, but with more zombies and less doughnuts.

The visual effects and production design are also impressive, creating a believable and immersive post-apocalyptic world. The infected are particularly terrifying, but at the same time, they are also pretty darn hilarious with their twisted, fungus-covered bodies and wild, animalistic behavior. It’s like watching a zombie version of “Dancing with the Stars”.

The episode also does a great job of capturing the tension and danger that comes with surviving in such a harsh world. The show doesn’t shy away from depicting the violence and brutality that comes with trying to survive in a world overrun by zombies. It’s like “The Walking Dead” but with more fungus.

Overall, the first episode of The Last of Us is an excellent start to the series. It sets the stage for an exciting and emotional journey, and I can’t wait to see what the rest of the season has in store. Fans of the game will not be disappointed, and even those who have not played the game will be able to enjoy the story. Highly recommended! And keep your eyes open for the next episode, it’s going to be a fun ride.

Is it too late to start a new hobby?


I found out about this term just a few months ago and it stands for the keyboard. Not the instrument but yes, that clickity-clack keyboard used for typing. Just like that, I now know that anything and everything has its own enthusiasts.

Hobbies are expensive. So the short answer to the question is, NO. It’s never too late because as you grow older I can safely assume that you make more than enough money (and maybe time) for a new hobby.

Back to keyboards.

There’s this mechanical keyboard hobbyist that I just found out about. Typically, it sounded very interesting to me. Why keyboards? Well, imagine a Gundam set or even Legos. It is very similar. It requires some technical skills, also the fact that you can customize and make it your own. Same principle.

Here are some basics.

For noobs

There’s a lot more for me to research and learn on this keebs hobby, which on these three days of googling and YouTubing I can safely list down things that I personally find most important to start. Obviously there’s also some technical stuff such as soldering, that I won’t get into just yet.

  1. Keyboard size/layout
  2. Click sound preferences/typing feels
  3. Keycap design

Edit 26 August 2020: Found a website //

It all comes back to individualism. The world feels like it’s getting smaller and smaller. One needs to stand out to feel some level of important-ness and somehow be exclusive. That’s where hobby comes filling in, especially those that can be customizable with your own identity. Try it.

Personally, it feels good.

Update 27 July 2020: Just received my Keychron K6 Wireless Mechanical Keyboard RGB Backlight / Hot-swappable / Brown switch and I am typing with it now. Might need to get use to it first though.

That’s What I’ll do if I have Dragons GOT S8E4/5

I’m late. Just a tad bit late to watch Episode 5 by one day. That is enough for me to find out that most people hated the episode. Even the previous one too.

Personally, I feel OK. In fact, I loved those episodes. In a twisted world of Game of Thrones, one might expect this outcome. Specifically, the outcome where YOU never get what you want the characters to be. Yes, you.

Why I didn’t write any review for Episode 4? Because I feel, a good amount of people died in that episode, is sufficient enough for an act of revenge. THE revenge. So, we needed to relax — until last Monday!

I admit this season’s episodes was kind of rush. I was actually expecting each of the battles is worth to be two episodes each. I also understand but can’t imagine the hard work they’ve all been thru to make even 1 episode. In one of the making videos, someone said: “I have given everything I have, but I won’t do this again”. That meant something. I heard HBO gave them extra money just to extend the season but the showrunners refused. I get it. Money isn’t everything. Good for them. What I don’t get is the fans hating this season. Look. This is their show. They can do whatever they want and obviously, they can’t please each and every one.

About Daenerys spontaneous decision. If I had a dragon and you killed my best friend, I would do that too. Isn’t all good action movies are like that? Taken. John Wick. Bourne. Avengers. They will kill whoever is on their way just to get revenge. Just to get that one person who’s responsible. So what’s wrong with that? Does that make her a bad person? Well, maybe but it’s a feeling. A human instinct.

Nope, you won’t die gloriously instead…

Cersei’s death — it was kind of lame but in a way, it was a good choice. Hear me out. She has been the most hated queen, so that was one way to spit on her corpse and say “Nope, you won’t die gloriously instead, here — you will just get a lame death” and for once, she kinda gets what she deservesIt must have been a tough decision but you get a slow clap from me. As for Jamie, well, he asked for it.

Clegane story is a good one, as for the rest of deaths obviously we have seen it miles away and prepared for.

Finally, before the final episode next week — enjoy these videos while it lasts.

Winter is Dark and bloody GOT S8E3

What do we say to the God of Death? — Not today.

Did I ever tell you that my favourite character since the beginning is Arya? Well, it’s her and the dragons. I knew I had some talent for reading people and a good judge of a character. Spoilers below.

Let’s be real here. I wasn’t ready for another epic battle after Avengers: Endgame few days ago but hell yeah, I am satisfied. This is definitely a good week. Arya, what can I say. You’ve grown up so well and made me proud!

We’re in the Avengers Endgame now

Closure. That’s what we deserve and that is what we get in this masterpiece.

You don’t need to speculate, you just need to watch it. I will worth your while. Heck, it is worth that 10 years of your life since you started watching the first Ironman. Same goes like my other review, after the dotted lines — spoilers.

Here We Go Again GOT S8E2

It’s building up. The great battle that we’ve all been waiting for — The Battle of Winterfellthat’s what they’re calling it. And that is what it’s gonna be.

I won’t remind you again about spoilers, in future posts when you reach the dotted line and you haven’t watched it — it means spoilers below.


OK, as usual, I will start with the end. If you’ve seen GOT Season 8 trailer, the White Walker’s undead horse foot stepped on to Winterfell and with that — it is official! It is going to be EPIC! It’s the same final scene from the trailer for this episode. You anxiously felt the winter is coming near. It is here.

For this second episode, I felt that it wasn’t enough. I am calm, and it’s just not right. I wanted to be a fool like I did in the last episode. I want to ride that emotional rollercoaster which I had been riding all along. I also believe, it is an episode for us to “rest” and try to keep calm as the next episode might blow our minds. They building up that anticipation of what’s going to happen or maybe I just miss the dragons.

Did I ever tell you that I am obsessed with dragons after watching GOT? It is a magnificent creature. Majestic like hell! They’ve really done a freaking impossible one with the dragons in the series. Brilliant I tell you! I have never felt like this since Dungeons & Dragons though I have seen some dragons in some movies but never like this, never! It’s impossible for anyone to hate the dragons after watching them here.

Don’t get me wrong, there’s a lot of emotional scenes in this one, such as Arya’s last person to hang out other than the two old shits. Brienne was recognized to become what she deserves. Also, there’s a new song to put on repeat:

Florence + the Machine – Jenny of Oldstones (Lyric Video) | Season 8 | Game of Thrones (HBO)

Did you notice the costumes in this episode? On word — Sansa. I don’t know how they did it but it’s working. All of it. She looks hot and fierce at the same time. They must’ve hired a bunch of talented designers in the crew. Oh man!

“The [Game of Thrones battles] I’ve done previously were generally from Jon’s perspective,” Sapochnik told Entertainment Weekly. “Here I’ve got 20-some cast members and everyone would like it to be their scene. That’s complicated because I find the best battle sequences are when you have a strong point of view. I keep thinking: ‘Whose story am I telling right now?’”

(Taken from: Game of Thrones’ Battle of Winterfell Will Be Epic. Here’s the Full List of Everyone We Know Is Involved So Far)

So for next week, let’s do a checklist of everyone involved in the Battle of Winterfell — we’ll cross on the urm, un-survived ones:

  • Jon Snow
  • Daenerys Targaryen
  • Tyrion Lannister
  • Sansa Stark
  • Arya Stark
  • Brandon Stark
  • Theon Greyjoy
  • Brienne of Tarth
  • Davos Seaworth
  • Samwell Tarly
  • Jorah Mormont
  • Sandor “The Hound” Clegane
  • the Night King

You’re welcome but uh, did you notice of the absent of Viserion? Well, have you read about this one popular theory suggesting the Night King could have a different strategy in mind? I don’t think the Night King is a fool either. Let’s just wait a week, shall we?

As always, here’s a preview to keep you occupied for a week:
