Last week’s episode of The last of us It was a watershed moment in the filming of Queer Television A compassionate, haunting, and rewarding love story played by Nick Offerman and Murray Bartlett to enthusiastic acclaim. This website thinks it might earn Offerman his first Emmy Award. The spoils and pains of human connection Set against the backdrop of the apocalypse, the episode celebrates life when death surrounds it, giving viewers a reason to hang on in the dark times. Unfortunately, it was all for nothing because – let’s be honest – Neil Druckmann and Craig Mazin think we’re stupid. There is no way this episode happened outside of Boston.

The episode is supposed to have taken place in “Lincoln, Massachusetts,” but you would never know it from observing the mountainous terrain of the episode. Acquired by Maine’s favorite son, Stephen King. This isn’t Lincoln, you’re Chowderhead.

The last of us. Episode 3“,” tweeted the king. “You really want to tell me he’s 10 miles west of Boston?” Yes, Mr. Druckmann, this is unlike any part of Waltham we’ve seen.

Seriously, if HBO wanted to tell us, sure, that this episode took place in Worcester, we’d buy it. But come on, 10 miles outside Boston, with that landscape and so few Massholes? forget that. If Red Sox fans can survive the Bambino Curse, they can withstand the end of the world. King, who loved the episode “Good,” doesn’t care how tender the love affair, which is nowhere near legal seafood. Maybe this is Woburn. Could.

The king is not alone. for every varietyAnd “A mockery of the geography of the Boston area,” the episode declared, in a piece of trolling Neil deGrasse Tysonian that everyone, especially Bostonians, loves. Quite simply, Matt and Ben would never do that. You’d never know it from the reviews, which uniformly praised the episode for bringing up such a passionate same-sex romance in an oversized, mushroom-shaped zombie TV show. Our own review said, “If The last of us It is about the love that develops between a grieving father and the girl in his care, and the parallel to the bond between Frank and Bill, which Mazin’s script traces with tremendous heart and humor.” What part of I-95 did this episode happen in?

Everyone knows that this episode took place in Lynn, the city of sin (you never come out the way you came in).
