Main trailer dropped on Halloween. Forgot to post it here..

Looks badass. Henry Cavill is doing his own stunts. The same guy that played the night king and was stunt coordinator on GoT is doing it, and he said Henry is the best he's worked with and fastest learner. Sounds promising. Also, I read all but the last book, I'm about 1/4 into it. Awesome story.

Never read the books, only played the video games. Looks like it has potential.

Just watched the first episode, I like it. I own witcher 2 and 3 on gog and 3 on xbone but really haven't put much if any time into them. I'm gonna have to rethink that after watching this.

Just finished it. I liked it overall, but the casting is way off from the games, which will turn some people off, and the unnecessary jumping back and forth through time will confuse a lot of people who are new to the world and it's lore. Basically it feels like it was made for fans, so people just jumping in might have a hard time understanding everything that is happening.

Yea the first three episodes were kind of hard to track, but as the main story progresses and its actually a linear story (even with flashbacks if they do it) it will be easier to follow along I hope. After ep 4 or so it flows a lot better. There are definite teething issues and the pilot was all over the place, but all in all I give it a solid 8/10.

The story is based on the books, not the games, so the character casting isn't going to look like them. They did fairly well other than adding black characters. Which isn't really a big deal I don't see why people are so upset about that. I think they all did great.

Apparently Cavill is a gamer, and has put a ton of hours into Witcher 3, even before he landed the role. So he was running around as Geralt a long time before he was Geralt.

Still think Kate Beckinsale would have been my choice for Yennefer.

Just finished it, It feels like a 8 hour long movie more than a series. It starts pulling the jumps 10-30 years back and forth together later on. If you like the medieval/fantasy genre, then it's a good watch.

gave up after ep.4. Too much time spent on the wicked chick witches and not enough time with the namesake of the show.

I like it a lot more than I was expecting, but I think they're doing too much fan service and it's going to turn a lot of people off early on who aren't familiar with the series already.

I wasn't sure about Henry Cavill being cast in it, but they really nailed it down to the voice to the point it almost feels like they're using audio from the games.

Currently on episode 5 or 6, I watched a bunch of them last night. I hope it does well enough to at least complete a major story arc. It sucks getting into these Netflix shows and having them end in 1-3 seasons. Daredevil and Punisher were both fantastic and ended way too early.

It's because they're integral to the overall plot and both Trist and Yennifer are heavily involved with Geralt later on as well as the mages in the world in general. The story is a lot bigger than just Geralt, he's a major player in the story more so than the story being centered on just him.

Never played the game or read the books but I'm sort of enjoying it so far. Lots of gratuitous nudity and the proper amount of gore.

Witcher 2 and 3 are on Steam, on sale, for peanuts. Pulled down 2, last night to give it another try. Played the shit out of 3, with and without Nexus Mods, for the last couple years. But 2's controls, on PC, used to drive me nuts. I'll give it another spin.

Apparently, since the TV show came out, there's more people playing 3 on Steam, than are playing RDR2!

Spoiler:

The show is called the witcher but he's not the main character in the actual saga, just one of them. Ciri is the true main character and the entire story revolves around her, and she gets trained as a witcher. Think Arya from game of thrones, but way more bad ass and skilled in every aspect, plus magic... The first season is leading up to the main saga, its not the actual main story. The last episode sets up the rest, and since season two is green lit already we can assume the story transitions into a linear telling of the rest of the story. The first two books do the same time jumps and are all over the place basically because they are just a collection of short stories, but they follow the characters without going as deep into the witches back stories. The show is diving deeper than the books into Yen, but they do talk about the history and the women play a major part in the rest of the story so its cool to see the history and a little more detail than the books delve in to.

Same.

Just finished e3. The time jumps are annoying- "Oh, wait a minute...so that was 30 years ago?" Not confusing, just annoying.

The "men are evil" is layed on a bit heavily.

Clearly they are catering to the fans of the books and games. For those of us not geeked out on it and looking for an entertaining storyline, well....

I get that the chicky witches are important to the storyline, but those scenes fricken drag on and on slathered with boredom. I have no investment in cross checking story with books or whatever. I don't need to drag through boring painful episodes hoping for a return of a better character for a few fleeting moments.
