Is The Last of Us coming to HBO tonight? This program has become an institution in just a few weeks. It has given us great performances, and also served as another proof that video-game adaptations can be wonderful. At the end of the day, it is all about the people involved and the amount of effort they devote to the project.
After having all of this, let's get down to what's happening tonight on HBO Max. This episode (season 1 episode 5) has actually been available on HBO Max since Friday. The network / streaming company made the decision to release this one early due to the Super Bowl coming this weekend.

If you haven't seen episode 5 yet, let's just say that you are in for an incredible treat. This is a powerful story that follows the previous episodes of episode 4, and you'll learn a lot about a number of new characters, whether it's Sam, Henry, or the evil Kathleen played by Melanie Lynskey. All three characters will be important in their own right, and we're looking forward to seeing what they bring to the table.
One of the things that makes this program so special is that it never loses sight of anyone's humanity. It may be helpful to just look at things in a more intimate light, but this is never a show that does that. Even if their mission is one that has global implications, it never loses sight of it.
