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:
- Yennefer of Vengerberg (Anya Chalotra)
- Princess Cirilla / Ciri, (Freya Allan)
- 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.
