Massive praise for video game based series ‘The Last of US’

The newly episodic release of HBO’s ‘The Last of Us’, based on the popular video game series, has already began receiving massive acclaims from fans and TV viewers worldwide. 

The highly anticipated series debuted on the 15th of January in the US, introducing Joel and Ellie, as portrayed by Pedro Pascal and Bella Ramsey. 

And fans are already buzzing as to how well the actors bring these iconic video game characters to life. The series follows these two characters and other survivors as they traverse a zombie-infested US. 

The first episode alone was a gut-punch, managing to build a character up in one half of a 1 hour and a half episode, with the actress in question already flooded with applause and acclaim. 

HBO is of course known for Game of Thrones, based off the books by George R.R. Martin, so hopes are high that ‘The Last of Us’ could be the next big television event, possibly even matching other acclaimed zombie series ‘The Walking Dead.’ We’ll have to watch and see!

Told across nine episodes, the weekly releases will be available on HBO for US viewers and on Sky Atlantic for UK viewers.

Stormy polar cyclone hitting Malta and Italy nicknamed Thor

According to various weather reports, the Maltese islands, along with the likes of Sicily and the rest of Italy, are set to be hit by a massive wintery storm.

Nicknamed Thor by some international figures, the thunderstorms are expected for Thursday January 19th, with temperatures dropping to a low 10 degrees Celsius. However, according to Facebook page Malta Weather, the temperatures may feel as cold as -1°C.

The trend, according to Malta International Airport weather forecasts, will continue all throughout the remainder of the week, with heavy winds and rain showers spread throughout. 

Hail can be expected at some points due to the polar maritime airmass extending towards the central Mediterranean. So if you had any weekend plans, you might want to revise them ahead of time as the islands are in for a stormy battering after registering a record dry year in 2022.
