The video game adaptation we have all been waiting for has finally landed! The Last of Us aired its pilot episode on Monday, and now we're eagerly anticipating the remainder of the series.

Murray Bartlett plays Frank
We didn't get to see much of Frank in the game:
Poor Frank...in the video game, we actually only saw him as a hanging corpse who was cut to the floor! Not much to really compare on this one! Frank certainly brought a lot of intense emotion to Episode 3 thanks to his backstory and untimely end. The shift in his story is a different direction from the video game, but to me, it seems like an invaluable addition to the script to have seen Bill and Frank's time together in this way.
