So, what do people think of the Witcher series? Personally, I think they did an alright job, but made a lot of mistakes along the way (mostly to do with jumbling the timeline around). I don't think it's a dealbreaker, so long as they learn from their mistakes.
@Proactive Citizenry , I kinda feel like it was planned so when you finished it the first time and understood everyone's time line you would rewatch it. I know I did
@Proactive Citizenry , the writing was so unbelievably sloppy I could not get through the whole season. Henry Cavill was phenomenal but everything else was sub par at best in my opinion
@Proactive Citizenry , timeline makes sense if you view each character as its on line, it starts coming together in ep 3
@Proactive Citizenry , I honestly wish they did more with monsters but that’s just me. The monsters they did show were really good though. It’s definitely better to watch the season twice
@Proactive Citizenry , I liked the timeline thing, they give enough hints that if you’re paying attention you can figure it out, and I like shows that make you pay attention. They brought Ciri in too soon though, and the casting was pretty bad overall (Geralt and Dandelion were perfect though, and Yen was great)
@zuisher , exactly! They literally couldn’t do the backstory of these characters any other way because the time gap between their origins and when the meet and get together with ciri is like 50+ years
@Stugots, may I ask, respectfully, what you found sloppy about it? I personally loved it, but I'm just curious of other points of view.
@Stugots, I also liked the performance of whoever the Yennifer actress is. Not always the directing but I think she did an excellent job with the character and her transition from weakness to power.
@Proactive Citizenry , I personally liked the timeline. It was kind of nice when it clicked that it was split. I felt the show did a good job not holding your hand.. like they didn’t explicitly explain every detail. Made me think and pay attention more than I was anticipating
