The Last of Us HBO

Today, fans of incredibly good television were given an unexpected treat with the announcement that Episode 5 of HBO's The Last of Us adaptation, titled "Endure and Survive", will air two days early.

Fans in the US will be able to catch it on HBO Friday, 10th February at 9 pm EST/6 pm PST. This early mark ensures the show does not clash with the Super Bowl, a state of affairs which would have forced sports and video game adaptation enthusiasts to make a rather difficult choice.

Those in the UK will be able to catch the episode when it airs on Sky TV, provided they are willing to stay up until 2 am on Saturday, 11th February. The same goes for residents of the tropical paradise known as Australia, where it is, admittedly, slightly too hot at the minute. Episode 5 will air on Binge on Saturday, 11th February, at 1 pm AEDT.

Those are just the timezone changes we are currently aware of with official confirmation. If you live outside of those regions, it's probably worth checking with your local provider, as there are likely to be others. Are you looking forward to an early viewing of The Last of Us, or will this just make the wait for Episode 6 entirely unbearable? Endure and survive in the comments section below.
