    Initially first few mins, shit. Have to say this is possibly a GOT equal. I had no concept of Witcher, didn’t know about the books or games but after the last episode of season 1 I Googled it. Have ordered the books to read through the dark months, and I even feel inclined to buy the game. I don’t game, we have a PS4 for the nippers but I don’t even know how to turn it on.

    If you like The Spooks Apprentice, GOT, LOTR, you’re in!

    It’s good people.

    I have watched all, started when I was getting drunk, hated it as generic fantasy, carried on wAtching when sober and enjoyed it more. Henry Cavill performance and Yen’s, far better when not trying to be GoT, far to many different directors and styles which lead to some awful moments and too much unnecessary nudity, does it help the story plot or character development…

    I would watch the second series but more monster killing more drinking potion’s and the witchers mutation.

    Do not expect mindhunters and you will be ok

    I really enjoyed it – read the books and played a bit of the games.

    They don’t handle the different time periods well though – can see it would be confusing if you didn’t know the stories.

    Not a patch on the games. Some of the best story driven RPG’s going in my opinion.

    The timeline was a mess but once I worked out when was going on it was very good. Looking forward to season two.

    The games are incredible, Wild Hunt is probably my ‘best ever’game.

    I enjoyed it, was surprisingly taken by Cavill as Geralt, the fight scenes with him were genuinely impressive

    There is definitely some cheese to be had there but as has been said, if you want chin-stroking intellectualism you’re probably better off elsewhere.

    Yeah, the timelines jumping about took a bit of getting used to.

    It was one of the top 5 shows on Nerflix in 2019 (bigger than Stanger Things or the Crown) so season 2 is pretty much a given.

    It’s not too bad I’m only episode 2 and heard it picks up.

    so season 2 is pretty much a given.

    Already confirmed.

    It’s immensely enjoyable if you just assume it was written as self-parody. Gerald is unfulfilled in his work slaying monsters. He tries shagging hot babes, has a bath, but then knuckles down and accepts his responsibilities. Piglet seeks her true self – she seeks power and beauty, but is unfulfilled. She shags the boss, but that doesn’t do it. Then she realizes that all along she just wanted a baby to cuddle. The princess loses her world of privilege, discovers that friends are what really matters, gets frightened and screams and screams and screams.

    The silliness peaks at ep 3, which is mindblowingly silly. After that, it settles down a bit. By the end, the general story starts to make sense. It ends with a nice big hug.

    My thoughts exactly. It could easily have been terrible but wasn’t but GoT also raised our expectations of this sort of thing. It’s a pity they felt they had to cram so much of the story in to the first season, which led to the mess of time jumping and some characters not being very well developed – I’d have thought one of GoT’s legacies would have been networks being more willing to allow a slow burner multi-series fantasy fully commissioned from the start but I guess not. The final episode of s1 was a bit of a let down to, the usual crap of baddies kicking ass until the main goodie does one thing which totally changes everything /yawn.
