I think the story is rushed (Fan Creations)

You say nine episodes is enough, but two of those are entirely devoted to not Joel and Ellie.

That’s his point. Nine episodes might very well be enough. They just didn’t use those nine episodes in the most effective manner for building Joel and Ellie’s relationship.

I would much rather see a 12 episode season instead of losing the Bill and Frank episode or the Left Behind episode, but that’s not the same thing as 9 episodes not being enough to build up Joel and Ellie’s relationship. They made a choice, to follow those subplots, and it wasn’t always the correct choice for the show, at least for me.
