The Last Of Us is the highest rated show ever on IMDB

The Last Of Us is the highest rated show ever on IMDB

The Last of Us is sitting at the top of IMDb's highest-rated TV show chart.

It’s all anyone can talk about, including me. HBO’s The Last of Us series has finally premiered and to say that the first episode has gone down well would be a colossal understatement. It’s impossible to go on social media without seeing talk of the show.

Critics have branded The Last of Us the “greatest video game adaptation ever made” in a series of rave reviews and there’s one scene that’s particularly devastating that fans just can't stop talking about. There’s also a lot of people thirsting over Pedro Pascal as ‘daddy’ Joel and you know what, I cannot blame them. He is indeed a beautiful man. All in all, most are hailing the ‘perfect’ opening episode, so you may not be surprised to learn that The Last of Us is now the highest rated show ever on IMDb.

Take a look at what’s in store in the weeks ahead on The Last of Us.

As pointed out by Reddit user ron_weedsley, The Last of Us is the highest rated TV series on IMDb when looking at shows with over 10,000 user votes. This places The Last of Us ahead of Breaking Bad, The Wire, Game of Thrones, The Sopranos, and The Office.

The show currently has a user rating of 9.6, based on over 12,000 votes, while Breaking Bad sits closely behind with a score of 9.5. Technically, this makes The Last of Us the highest-rated TV show of all time but I would expect the show’s rating to change in the coming weeks. Fans have responded positively to the opening episode, but The Last of Us would need to maintain that kind of hype to keep the top spot.

Even still, I can’t imagine that the show will drop too many places. Those involved are already blown away by the fan response, with showrunner Craig Mazin writing a letter of thanks to fans. Bring on episode two, I say.
