Hercules TV-series was massively popular back in the days. Yeah, there was Xena too. Henry is much cooler and sexier than Kevin Sorbo too.The fact that people who don’t even like fantasy genre films and tv series liked it, is a good sign that this show is going to get bigger and better in the future.
I 100% agree with the parts of your take that I quoted; however, I will keep my response to you brief bc of posts that were more in detail but got deleted. Quite frankly, all the Netflix Witcher makes me wanna do is watch GoT bc I know that Netflix is just trying to make its own fantasy blockbuster. And watch The Hexer. I doubt Hissrich or most of the other producers/actors have either read or so as much watched Witcher game cutscenes.It was horrible show. First of all, all the stories in the books are horribly degraded in this show. For instance the forest parts and dyrads, the story which Geralt was captured by scoia'tael, dragon story. Seeing a black elf, dwarf, dyrad were weirdest experiences i had in fantastic TV show. There is no such a thing black elf, dwarf or dyrad in witcher stories . All dyrads have green skin. I hate netflix policy "include every race as much as possible and ruin the original one" Dyrads was extra horrible because of "amazon chick vibes". They dont use spears, they use bows. And during story line there is no information given decently about dyrads unlike books which described them decently. This producers also have to learn difference between fantasy dwarves and little people - people with dwarfism. All dwarfs in this show are played by little people. The people with physical disability. Dwarfs we know have strong muscles as well as thick bodies. So they can swing two-handed axes much faster and stronger than any other races we know in the universe. It was such a incohorence they've simply used little people. They've basically ruined all races in the book, evolved them something they are not.....They took all impresive stories from the book and made them inconsistent and cringe scenes. The casting is also horrible with few exceptions. Yennefer is so beautiful in the books that any men just fall for her. In the show she is just ugly. Yennefer is kinda person which will make people do the things she desires using her beauty. In show there is no such a beauty or charm for men to fall for her yet they fall somehow....And also what a messed up timeline was that. None of my friends who didnt read the books had a lot of questions at the end. It was horrible choice. As a result people should start critisize this kind of stuff instead of liking any content they consume. Seeing all this positive comments on this horrible show are just driving me crazy.
Geralt is not Geralt with a British accent. There's a reason CDPR had different accents of the people speaking the same language. The ones CDPR chose were no accident.I had the opposite reaction. I liked most other people but thought Henry did a bad job and really missed the mark.
So I finally watched the series.
Actually I watched it months ago. I just, had to digest it first. Come to terms with my sorrow and I lament what they've done.
I`d say you have plenty of time. Last I read filming of season 2 will resume in August. I would assume that`s barring any other unforeseen circumstances.When will The Witcher Season 2 be released on Netflix? Hopefully I can beat all three games before it gets released!
The show runner probably offered him a ton of money to attach his name to it, with the proviso that he'd say no negative. This gives Hisswich's attempt some street cred & deflection against the bastardizing & sleepiness of her show being called out....
Sapkowski was a consultant on this?
Sapkowski was obviously hurting for money considering how he went after CDPR after so many years. So wouldn't be surprised if this was true.The show runner probably offered him a ton of money to attach his name to it, with the proviso that he'd say no negative. This gives Hisswich's attempt some street cred & deflection against the bastardizing & sleepiness of her show being called out.
