My only complaint about the show so far is that the soundtrack seems muted and not as effective. It was integral to the experience of the game. The famous traumatic scene before the title card in the game didn't affect me in the show (it might've had I not expected it), but the same scene in the game still affects me--the difference is the soundtrack.

One other thing is that you've seen it before with almost the exact same imagery. They are straight up lifting literal shots from the game and putting them in the TV show. Not gonna hit the same when it's a literal 1:1 translation of something you've already seen.

I acknowledged that--I've probably seen that scene 100+ times counting all the reaction videos I've seen. Look at the 47th minute of the TLoU documentary. You can see the moment where they dial in the music and how it punctuates that particular scene perfectly. Comparatively, the soundtrack in the show doesn't have the same punch.
