    Apparently Platige studios published some news today in a video, but only in Polish.
    Anyone willing to sum up for the Hoi polloi ?

            Uh huh. But I hope they're available even outside of Netflix...

              I have seen a lot of Netflix operated shows, and I would say a good 90% of them are very well written and upscale entertainment. Netflix wants to run with the Big Boys (Stars, HBO, Showtime), so don't count on being low quality. While I do agree that there needs to be a beginning with "A Matter of Price", to cut back on the flashbacks. With millennials, if you do too much flashback, the show will die.

              As for Triss, besides being what she is in the books, she does help Ciri transform into a young woman after Triss yells at the Witchers of Kaer Morhen for not figuring out what Ciri was going through (as a young woman). "I'm indisposed!!" That line told all that needed to be said. So if sticking to the books, Triss does need to be in it, for nothing else, but that. Even though that is going against everything I do in the games, but that is what it is....just the games.

              I'll comment more, I'm sure, but it's now back to the game. I'm doing a complete run through. I started with TW:EE, now I'm playing TW2: AoK for the, IDK, 5th time more or less.
              We all need Geralt, in our own way. For either to have a snifter of vodka with, or to kill our own personal monsters.

                They will not have an easy job, though, the show will inevitably be compared both to the books and to the games, so it has to meet some fairly high expectations. And movie adaptations of books always have to cut a lot of details.

                In my opinion, if a character is not essential to the story, and would likely not be portrayed in a complete way (because the screen time is needed for other things), then it is better to simply not include them at all. Similarly for example to how Iorveth was cut from The Witcher 3 altogether, rather than appearing in some cameo role.

                  Since we all know Idris Elba will be playing a huge role in the series, who do you guys think he should play?

                  I'd be happy with him playing Geralt, Dandelion, Emhyr or Ciri. It'd be great to have a switch in genders like that. Geralt should have a son, a black son.

                      The ones that will compare are the ones that either: read the books, but never played the games. Played the games but didn't even know about the books (I was one of this type). The ones that are in the category of both, know well enough that the 2 are completely different and will be the most critical of the comparing of the series vs. the books.

                      But Triss IS an essential part of the Witcher Universe book wise. Not only with Ciri, the Lodge of Sorceress', The Uprising of Thanedd, the (almost) cat fight with Yennefer in Rivia, the pogrom in Rivia, the carrying to the boat. I was only using just that one reference as a point that she is a valid part of the series.

                      Garrison72 it was a sarcastic post by Lisbeth_Salander I hope. Idris has already destroyed The Dark Tower by accepting the role. Just as the "new" Ghostbusters destroyed that movie. Oh, how I hope that PC is going to go away soon.

                      And I just noticed, I'm 2 happy years in this forum community.

                        It was sarcasm, but we're talking about netflix here...There's a big chance we'll be seing something that will piss off many fans.
