  • Station Eleven was inspired by the post-apocalyptic novel of the same name.
  • The miniseries examines the aftermath of a flu pandemic.
  • Both stories take place in realistic settings and foretell what can happen in the future.

One of the most emotionally compelling and absorbing video games ever was The Last of Us, and Craig Mazin’s HBO adaptation more than lived up to that potential. While the first few episodes of The Last of Us have been cinematic, they also serve as a sombre reminder of a not-so-distant past. It feels particularly awful to imagine a world where social upheaval, police brutality, authoritarian governments, pandemics, and shattered families rule. As a result, casual viewers who were hoping for a zombie action show similar to The Walking Dead may need to change their expectations. Use your HBO subscription to watch the outstanding recent miniseries Station Eleven if you appear to appreciate emotionally compelling, disturbing shows about the future.

Like The Last of Us, Station Eleven already had a built-in fan base with sizable expectations ahead of its premiere episode. The miniseries was inspired by the acclaimed post-apocalyptic novel of the same name by Emily St. John Mandel, which had drawn critical acclaim when it hit bookshelves in 2014. The series examines the immediate aftermath of a flu pandemic that leads to the collapse of the world’s infrastructures and civilization; the initial ramifications are intertwined with a storyline that takes place two decades later. While Station Eleven’s plot may seem like an attempt to examine COVID-19 and its effects, the series was actually in production before the world actually shut down in March 2020.

Works of “hard genre” storytelling include The Last of Us and Station Eleven. Both stories take place in realistic settings and get close to their characters, even though they both include fanciful visions and foretell what can happen in the future. There is cause for hope in these shows because of what they say about grieving, healing, and hope for the future. Although both shows are about civilization collapsing, they are more than just a sadistic exercise. Station Eleven is also worth your time if you’re up for another utterly captivating series in between episodes of The Last of Us.
