    (i'd recommend seeing the first 4 episodes before opening spoilers)


    decent fighting, cinematography and music.
    i absolutely fucking hate the diversity-focused casting.
    For example the black knight in Cintra, black dryads and elves, the alderman of Bleviken completely omitted in favour of letting his 12-year old daughter take the reins in a scene
    diversity isn't an issue with me - where appropriate, but knowing source material - it's an annoyance in the back of my head whilst watching it.

    and that kind of lingers around, instead of letting me just enjoy the content without some squadW thoughts, like
    the scene with Yennefer pondering about the role of women on the beach after the successful assassination of Queen Kalis of Lyria and her daughter -- ultimately making me think if the dramatic monologue is necessary or just a statement intended to appease people by recognising these flaws in society to address feminism of today

    the plot moves too fast as well, if you ask me. despite being focused on the short stories by Sapkowski, I'd say the first episode could've been the first season; by establishing context for non-book/game fans
    and making the fall of Cintra a longer, more detailed arc.

    nonetheless, i think it's worth checking out, it's quite good but i hope they improve on season 2.

    Yes if you don't consider Triss as Triss. Combats are really kino by the way.

    Watched the first two episodes and its quite a good show if I am honest.
    When it was announced Henry is gonna play Geralt, I thought it'll be shit but he did a good job
