    Started watching this last night without knowing the story/premise. Pretty good so far. My only complaint is the seemingly low-budget sets - everything looks super obviously like a set, it feels like you're watching a live play in any scene that isn't outdoors. Other than that I'm sure I'll finish it off and hopefully they throw more money at it for season 2.

    Finished it yesterday I liked it a lot - the only thing that bothered me was the jumping through timelines. I found it hard to know if I was watching the past, present or future.

    There's different timelines? Oh man Sounds like I need to read some episode summaries.

    I'm only 2.5 episodes in but the disfigured witch girl with the portals and her weird lover who appears to live in limbo is a bit confusing for me.

    This 100%!
    Once I put 2 and 2 together that there were multiple timelines for the characters it made way more sense, as mentioned in this thread they all come together in the end.

    Overall I quite liked it

    That that was terribly done. Lost track several times.

    Finally got around to watching it. As someone who's never played the games or read the books it was passable, but not good. I feel like it was 100% geared towards having some kind of knowledge of the background, which doesn't make for a good watch. The timeline jumping just made it worse. At least with GoT you didn't need to know anything walking in, that's why it was hugely popular.

    Definitely felt like a higher budget version of those campy Sy-Fy network shows (Merlin and shit like that)

    I’m thinking the writers had meant for the timeline jumping to make sense once you got to the last 2 episodes. Before that, there would be no way to know. Not saying if that was the right choice or not, but if they wanted you to have your ah-ha moment / the climax at the end, then they did a decent job at executing.

    Never played the games or read the books. Polished through it and quite enjoyed it. I thought the timeline jumping aspect was quite obvious right from the beginning.

    The best acting was the Queen and Gerald's gay lover...

    too many elements of LOTR, GOT etc.. and there isn't a linear flow to the storyline, but after finishing 8 episodes... have to admit, I recall most of the storyline.

    Is it just me, or Henry Cavill is being typecast for just terrible roles... he was amazing in the man from UNCLE, but Superman and now a jacked grunting Legolas is a bit of a stretch

    As someone who's never played, or read the books, I had no issues following the story. Cavill was awesome as Geralt, and I've also heard he essentially begged to be cast, as soon as the project was announced, because he's such a huge nerd, which really comes through. Biggest complaint from my wife (who is a witcher fan) is that he's too pretty, but he really nailed Geralt's voice/grunts/swearing.

    Either way, I really enjoyed the season, and Renfri was the hottest.

    That's why I just say I have a 4" dick and lift weights to make up for it.

    I agree. I feel they generally nailed the cast but I just don't see Triss when I look at that actress. Surely they could have found a hot redhead actress to play that role.
    Yeah, Triss has to be Playboy cover girl hot. https://www.instagram.com/p/2nspxIhmGC/?hl=en (mildly NSWF)

    I heard the same... but looking good and grunting and yelling "Fuck" every once in a while isn't really acting is it?
