If you were at all curious about the Witcher show check it out. Henry Cavill is an excellent Geralt.

I’m watching it now. Soon finished with the first season.

It sounds like Geralt has the very same voice in this show as in the Witcher 3 game.

Its good? I haven't really gotten into it, first episode didn't really catch my attention.

I liked it. I think the biggest problem is that season 1 is necessarily a bunch of short stories loosely connected (much like the first book). So it doesn't really feel like Ciri, Geralt, or Yennefer have gotten very far in any given episode.


At worst, Yennefer looks fantastic naked once she's gotten her magic makeover.

I also liked it. It got better and better after each episode.

We got to see some tits. Not only Yennfers but other womens tits too.

The Bard. A good story always needs a bard, and the bard is also a good contrast to Geralt. I haven’t read Don Quijote but I imagine Geralt and the Bard to be a little bit like Don Quijote and Sancho Panza.

I got a little bit confused at one time because the story jumped back and forth in time without it being evident at first. Ciri’s mom looked identical to Ciri, and the grandmother Queen Calanthe looked to be the same age all the time which added to the past/present-confusion.

Triss Merigold should have had red hair like in the game. But maybe she will dye it in Season 2. I would like that.

The Nilfgaardians. They should have had a more foreign accent. It would have added to the feeling that they are invaders of the North. If they make the elves speak elvish, they could have made the Nilfgaardian speak Nilfgaardian, or at least english with an accent.

The fist episode was so poorly done (with a few bright spots) that I lost interest. I did keep it on in the background, though, and from what I saw, it looked like it may have improved some as it went.

This material was always in danger of falling into the "what works in books and/or in video games doesn't necessarily work in TV/film." From what I saw, I'd say they landed squarely in that realm.

Still, when I get time I'll watch the whole first season to check my impressions.

I have up before they left the bar. Didn't like cavill's acting, pretty sure only vigo mortenson can do the role. And the makeup and effects were worse than Nigerian and Ugandan action movies

First episode underwhelming, with some really stupid dialogues. I’m watching the rest anyway, that goes without saying. I did like the story so far, though, made me feel sorry about not reading the books. Also Cavill did not look out of place to me, I actually liked him as this mutant merc hunter character. I’ll have more to say after I watch a few more episodes, I’m sure

I think the first episode suffers a bit because:

-it was the first short story the author wrote for the universe. Nothing was established and it kinda showed.

-there was no dynamic range for Geralt. He was just angry and grumpy and cynical. This definitely gets better as the show progresses, especially with Jaskier.

-the decision to start Ciri's story at the same time as Geralt's and Yennefer's, despite the latter 2's stories beginning decades before Ciri is born.

-too much time spent on Cintra to effectively portray Geralt in Blaviken. The tension felt rushed to get to the payoff, but they didn't necessarily earn the payoff.

Wtf is with this cheap ass production? Palace scenes look like some Turkish soap opera,. Maybe we are spoiled by the GoT, but some special effects look straight from 1980s.

jesus christ, how can anyone say with a straight face that this series is good. ITS OYTRAGEOUS!!!

what a disgrace to the witcher series!!!!

omfg did they ran out of BUDGET. oh right, cavill took up 80% of the budget. DUH.

first 3 episodes in. HORRIBLE acting, the kind u see in fan made movies and fanfiction. its ok-ish certainly a step above highschool musicals and projects and shit.

BUT A TV SERIES?? FK NO. that is low CGI, BAD ACTIN, BAD STORY LOW. jesus the actin LOL.

cavill cant act FOR CRAP proven yet again. all he does is look pretty and say little oneliners.

i cant believe its rated so high this series. provin yet again how many people are paid to rate it high. this man aint no geralt of rivia. WTF are people BLIND.

this series is horrible.

like the witcher vibe though but i think its 6 out of 10 at best so far.

low budgety, low cgi, bad actin, story is a mess right now. i mean did u see how fast they skipped the invasion LOL.

what about sound. half the time i can barely understand WTF they are speakin. u literally have to UP the volume to understand half the words. WTF is this crap. did noone ran this bullshit to see if quality is sufficient. oh right they ran outta moniez and time.

this crap is a 5 out of 10.

the witcher is garbage lol.

episode 6 right now. its a collection of small stories. most stories are crap. too short. no character development, shitty actors, bad actin, and bad filmin makes it hard 2 enjoy.

lol i could barely make any sense out of da episodes untill i realize they r different timezones.

episode 6 for example. cavill casually strolls up after one of da black girls broke some farmers neck after squabblin. he throws a dead head of a monster on da ground and walks out angrily.

lol just how bad is that done.

lololol so we supposed 2 believe he arrived right at that same moment, didnt heard the squabblin and the murder, but decided to throw da head of a monster anyway.

lololol

and what about that magic forest. its literally a giant lamp on da background shinin brightly and some plants on da floor.

lololol

this series, dogz...maybe ok if this still 1990. u know back in da days with macgyver, stargate and all that shit.

but it is 2019. in 2019 this shit is just unforgivable.

Ok, I finished watching The Witcher. Last two episodes were actually good tv. I think. Also, maybe the last two episodes were just ok, but compared to the first six, they were good tv. I don’t know how to describe this show, it is not good, but not unwatchable. Special effects are something else, couple of times I thought I am being pranked for a millisecond, that’s how ridiculous things look. Goat man and hedgehog knight look so amateurish, you can’t help but start laughing. Also at one point you realize that the show has time jumps, back and forth, like Westworld, I don’t know if people who read the books liked the show better, the story is the best part, I thought, I found it interesting, with all the kingdoms, mages and monsters. Cavill, btw, is not a problem at all here, I thought he was good.

toss a coin 2 ur witcher, u deluded rag.

show is shit.
i cant believe they made a scene where they were sexin and an entire audience was clappin. like how fuckin retarded is that shit.

and it gets worse.

apparently, they did that scene to send a message. da message is that people "embrace" diversity

EMBRACE?? XCUSE ME? whatthe fuck?
apparently she is so deluded that she wanted 2 send a message that black and white couples. i never even noticed the race thing btw when watchin the show, other than how much black people were actually blackballed into the show.

but apparently her idea of embracin it, is to show 2 peoples havin sex in front of an audience clappin.

wtf? i thought that scene was grossly disturbin. awkward oncomfortable, like wtf has the world come to when u have sex in front of audiences. like thats just WEIRD AS FUCK.

GTFO here, the show is absolutely crazy and once u learn about the CUCKS behind the show, u start 2 understand why the show has turned CUKOLD.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-ouCJJTKr2k

the people behind the show, are absolute SJW treehuggin FAGGOTS.

no wonder TITTIES everywhere. as if random titties would make the show good somehow. i rather had some good story episode than some random whore titties (and they were fuckly btw).

nilfgard armor also looks donkeyballs.

oh yea EMBRACE DIVERSITY, u fuckin cukolds.

oh thats why they had dwarves in the episode. now i get it. embrace diversity cukolds. put some random dwarves in. oh and btw, they didnt even had names!!!

SO DIVERSE!!
ITS FAKE!!!

these liberal cucks put them in so they can feel good and sleep well at night but in actually they wanted nottin 2 do with these lowly peoples, they were so irrevelant, they didnt even had names!!!

typical lib CUCKISH behavior.

i remember this one time, i dunt even remember where i saw it. some white girl was like "butbutbut u cant ban mexicans/ beanheads becoz thats so inhuman and and and whose gonna clean our toilets if theres no mexicans left"

yea u know it. deepdown we all know these liberal CUCKS have supremacy feelings. coz thats how the world is, she is the white girl, the masteress, the colored folks are the lowly folks doing the dirty work and beneath her. and thats how the world should remain.

just completely cukoo. uh newsflash, that shit aint normal and it was crazy as hell that the scene was created to send such message. wtf should stupid millenials think now?

I think its watchable if you got nothing else to do or watch. You can take it for what it is, low budget.

It’s kinda like The Shannara Chronicles. Low budget. In season 1 you can really tell that the main actors are inexperienced. You almost laugh at times at the acting. But the show gets better and better, and the actors are growing with their characters which is nice to see, and overall it is actually watchable and enjoying, because the story is not a bad story. I’ve been waiting for season 3 for like a year now and I’m still waiting. I cancelled my subscription to HBO recently so I will have to subscribe again when season 3 comes.

This sort of stuff always makes me wonder what it would take (besides sheer money power) to re-make "woke" movies/TV with better plots and actors. Or, on a lesser level, maybe it would be possible to re-cast roles or digitally replace casting choices. Then editing out other bad parts to make an alternate and watchable version... like Topher Grace's Star Wars I–III... or a "Dark Knight" where the ferries explode :D
