    honestly who gives a fuk about some "inclusion" if it's based on fantasy anyways but they could've hired a less annoying actress to play Fringilla, that chick looks irritating as fuk

    acting was all around good. This dude suits the role of The Witcher wayyyy better than he plays Superman

    never played the games or read the books, that was awesome to binge over the weekend

    finished it. it actually gets MORE confusing the further you go. holy ****. shouldn't have expected much considering a woman was behind it all. she took a pre-existing world and just flung **** at the wall... and it didn't stick. it's a male trope, so why was a woman given the licence to create the show? the original creator created a good world so that even with such an idiot behind the tv show many parts of it are still enjoyable.

    Yea...definitely felt way too much attention was given to Yen. The show is about Geralt, not Yen.

    After getting in a few episodes I've figured it out.


    The story is utter garbage and the show was written/directed by morons. Fight scenes are pretty good but that's about it.

    I think hell is freezing over. Sekiro wins game of the year, Amazon gives us The Boys, and the same Netflix that gave us the Death Note adaption produces a book accurate Witcher series.

    Honestly I went into this expecting it to either be random standalone Witcher quests or something that vaguely resembled the overall plot. Not in a million years did I expect that they would do a near totally faithful adaption, interspersing the short stories(which you do need for context for the main plot) strategically, in ways that usually draw connections between them and the main plot. Major props to them also being willing to do a nonlinear storyline as opposed to the usual handholding shows give their audiences.

    The super early pics of Henry Cavill as Geralt looked awful and I was extremely displeased seeing how Ciri and Yennefer were cast, but Henry and Yennefer nailed the hell out of it. And Ciri was good too, not quite as fully realized yet as Yen and Geralt but way better than expected. Jaskier I didn't see the casting of but for a character they could have really screwed up, they played it just right.

    Even if some of the other characters didn't visually sync up with what I'd pictured, their acting invalidated that quickly.

    I could see the masses not liking it unfortunately, or who just people who weren't expecting the varying timelines- but having read the books I can assure you this wasn't an arbitrary decision, they either had to cut the short stories(which are in the past, and comprise the first two books), which would A. Cut out a lot of the world building and B. Cut out essential information about certain characters that becomes extremely relevant later on- OR they had to start with the short stories before switching to the main story 1-2 seasons in, with the viewers needing to recollect minor details several seasons back. This will get better though, and I suspect we are either done with the short stories or they will last until the end of next season at the most.

    I am very curious to see how they adapt certain things, especially Vigelfortz who I found had a strong introduction but was ultimately very poorly written in the books, as well as Eredin who you bros will know from The Witcher 3 games- Despite that game being great they absolutely butchered his character and made him as one note as you can get when they had a complex, intimidating, creepy and all around interesting character already written for them. Allegedly CDProjektred had to cut stuff from that storyline so it'll be awesome seeing an adaption that (hopefully) does him justice.

    I don't want to spoil you, but honestly just being aware of the timelines being multiple will fix this for you.

    The basic version though is that Geralt(white haired bro) and Yennefer(Black haired mage) are in the past, and are catching up to Ciri's(the weird eyed white haired girl's) storyline. They all start separate, then Yen and Geralts connect, and then their timelines catch up to Ciri's at the end.

    Triss and Fringilla casting did not make much sense unless they are going to reboot Triss after the Battle Sodden Hill.

    I actually like the Geralt from the books better, he has a lot more dialogue and a good sense of humor. That being said, it took about three episodes to get over his "Christian Bale Batman" growl. Cavill's physicality and movement are great.

    The character that I thought was the weakest choice was Cahir. That kid is just doesn't have the look.

    finished it last night. wished they went with a chronological timeline vice jumping around the place. hopefully they put in more content and expand in season 2 instead of compressing/leaving a ton of chit out.

    overall not bad but netflix could have done better.

Cut out a lot of the world building and B. Cut out essential information about certain characters that becomes extremely relevant later on- OR they had to start with the short stories before switching to the main story 1-2 seasons in, with the viewers needing to recollect minor details several seasons back. This will get better though, and I suspect we are either done with the short stories or they will last until the end of next season at the most.
    I agree they needed to do the short stories, but I can't quite put my finger on why it still felt so disjointed. I think if they didn't do the whole fall of cintra episode one to start out ciri's story and just let it happen naturally when geralt/yenn's timelines synced up and we were more or less there. It would've flowed better. Even knowing from episode 1 that the timelines were different because yenn was a troll still I was jarred for a moment when calanthe is alive again after I watched her die 4 episodes ago.

    The solution may have just been to have more episodes like 10 or 12 so that they could introduce yenn/geralt then ciri and not shoehorned her arc intro into episode 1.

    In the end however, it may just be that because the short stories are all small plot lines with only a general continuity in space-time, that we always would've felt weird watching it transpire on tv. especially where we are so conditioned to linear story telling via this medium. For example, the djinn episode preceding the three jacks episode and then yenn/geralt being much more friendly with each other like they've been on 100 dates even though they just met through the viewers eyes was a little weird.

    The Fringilla as black casting bothers me less so because of "muh medieval fantasy purity" but because she's supposed to be from Touissant and related to Queen Henrietta. Granted that's game cannon, but it feels a bit disrespectful to ignore that completely. But otherwise she's played quite faithfully.
    isn't Fringilla from Toussaint tho? I remember Tessaia mentioning to her father in the chapter meeting or w/e that there "isn't enough perfume in Touissant to cover up the stench of that nepotism" or something when they were reassigning Yen and Fringilla.

    also, anyone know why they call it the Brotherhood, and not the Lodge? Or was that a change made in the games which isn't carrying over?

    Can def see how the story might be confusing to someone who has no idea about the story going into it. I was confused for a bit with the jumping timelines as well but as long as you know the people and pay attention, it's not that hard to figure out. Greatly enjoying it so far.

    and you know this because you are the casting director? she's not sexually appealing enough for you so its immersion breaking? fuking lmao trying thinking with something other than your dick rofl

    I read this thread and noticed quite a few people not seeming to enjoy it which is unfortunate to see.

    First of all I will say the first episode for me was the weakest, so if you stumbled on that I'd recommend pushing on. While Geralt's storyline in that one is good, and the ending great, its pace and energy really clashed for me and the people I was watching with compared to Ciri's story. Its not a bad episode but what should have been the hook was definitely the weakest episode of the season IMO.

    As for people who are feeling like they are missing something, confused by the timelines, or don't feel like the storylines going anywhere, hear me out. First of all, the timeline is simple if you just think of it as Yennefer storyline being the farthest in the past, trying to catch up to geralts, with geralts in the middle trying to catch up to Ciri, which is the present.

    If you feel like you are missing something or the world buildings bad I don't blame you, but this is a staple of The Witcher books and games, plunging you in without any info dump, and just letting you experience things. For example rather than getting a long narration about the mages, you are just exposed to how their sect works. The video games for example are sequels to the books and just kind of throw you in and let you figure things out as you go. While this kind of world building isn't inherently better or worse than a traditional style, I could certainly see it being jarring to those who have never encountered it before.

    I can't be sure precisely how they will adapt thing in season two, but everything is indeed building to something that is one story in a single timeline, eliminating any confusion factor. Even if some things do seem disconnected and pointless now, most of it will be significant at some point. I don't want to come close to the realm of spoilers but suffice it to say some characters you've met in the geralts past timeline will serve unbelievably significant purposes.

    I will say that I am disappointed by Triss. I hope they have something up their sleeve, since she is one of the exceptions to me loving the cast since she is just so far off from how she's supposed to look. Not the end of the world, just a shame considering it hitting the nail on the head in so many other ways.

    I hear you, and other people clearly share your mindset. But I think that despite people being jarred by it now, that by doing it this way we will be onto the linear storyline imminently, and I think once the series is at that point and people see thats not the format of the show eternally, that they will be more ok with it. It clearly wasn't a perfect approach, but I applaud the balls they had to do it this way since I think (assuming they finish the series) that this approach will result in the best overall result.

    Like everyone said, the multiple timelines were poorly executed. They were going for some Westworld-type thing, but it wasn't done well and doesn't even fit the show thematically.

    On the surface, it's enjoyable. Good action, teddies in just about every episode, and I'm interested to see how these multiple timelines intersect.

    Some plot points pretty contrived, though, especially with characters meeting and next minute they're in love or lifelong buddies.

    Plus I think "throw a coin to your witcher" song is super lame.
