  • The Witcher

    Anyone else watching? I'm really enjoying it, as someone who read all the books and played all the games I think they have done it justice. Definitely not for child viewing though if you have any!

    I'm early. A certain person just got full body modification and captured the interest of the royal dweeb.

      I mostly enjoyed it, though I wasn't super crazy about the last episode. For me it kind of fizzled out.

        It's not like that's the LAST last episode, unless the show doesn't get renewed.

          The show got a renewal for season 2 before it was released. So has Amazon's Middle-Earth series, and that hadn't even begun filming, yet. Everyone's in a scramble to replace Game of Thrones, except HBO.

            I haven't seen the series but I am 1/3 of the way through Baptism of Fire. I can see why Highlander fans would like the Witcher, so many similarities, even down to the whole I can't have kids thing so I'm going to create a little non-blood-related family.

              It's definitely worth watching, particularly as a Highlander fan. It just seemed a bit uneven to me, I don't think the multi-timelines thing did it any favors, and the last episode didn't quite work for me. But there is some great stuff in there.

                I intend to watch it after I'm done with the books. I imagine the multiple timelines is an attempt at capturing the puzzle piece nature of the book, which I very much enjoy. The reading the books is like having to solve a series of riddles. Watching a show is a passive occupation, you sit back and are entertained, reading is more active where you co-create the universe with the writer in your own mind. Trying to translate from a book to a show, especially one with complex plotlines like Sapkowski's, is bound to run into issues.
