The Witcher – season 1

Violence. Sex. Some exotic, brilliant visuals. … A bit of comic relief.

So much potential.

The Game of Thrones TV series took a complicated story with hundreds of characters … and made it easy to follow.

Season 1 of The Witcher on Netflix is FAR more confusing, by comparison. Deliberately confusing. It’s told in a non-linear manner so you have no idea of the time frame of each episode. 

Rotten Tomatoes 56% approval. Critics are mixed.

However, 3 main personalities are fascinating: 

  1. Yennefer of Vengerberg (Anya Chalotra)
  2. Princess Cirilla / Ciri, (Freya Allan)
  3. Geralt of Rivia — The Witcher — (Henry Cavill)

The first season explores formative events that shaped the three lead characters, leading up to their first encounters with each other.

So — Witcher is no Game of Thrones. 

But is it worth watching?

Everyone is expecting season 2 to be easier to follow. I’ll give it a try.
