I originally watched this in 2019 when it released and was a big fan, the world was captivating and interesting yet bleak and grounded. Such was my interest, I shortly after played all the games and began reading the books, now two years later and with season 2 about to come out I decided it was worth a rewatch. On my second watch I wasn't quite as impressed, now able to judge the show both as an adaptation of material, characters and stories I was familiar with from other works and also able to better analyse the show as a piece of television in its own right now that I could better understand the quite convoluted plot and timeline. The Show is an attempt to adapt two collections of short stories that serve as precursors to the main witcher series, these stories are often only loosely connected although are often thematically related and take place over a huge span...

I finished watching The Wicher at one go straight, so it is evident that it kept me hooked until the very end. Let me be clear about something: I am not much of a fan of these medieval sagas. But something about The Witcher struck me as different. Yes, there are many flaws. The acting of the supporting cast is not very strong, the storyline is a bit obvious, and sometimes things happen too conveniently for the story to progress. But the good things certainly dominate the bad things. The "Dunkirk approach" to the editing mostly worked well, even though ambiguity remained at certain places. I guess those will be cleared in the second season. Henry Cavill was magnificent as the titular character. The dialogues were very strong too, thanks to its source material. The pace of the series was strong, and it picked up interest as the episodes rolled by. I, personally, preferred this over the Game of Thrones...

It got better a couple episodes in. A lot felt forced, stiff, and didn't have enough suspension of disbelief (that magic touch). But it was good enough to keep me watching and liking it more as it went on. I didn't like the puzzle of events though. Can't wait for a fan edit putting events in sequential order. Just that thing that is hard to put into words. You feel it is all fake whether it is acting, timing, camera work, wire work, choreography or what not. Closer to Shannara chronicles than Game of Thrones in suspension of disbelief. Or World of Warcraft (the movie) rather than Lord of the Rings.

Saturday, April 18, 2020

the timeline is the critical issue in this show. it is not consistent in the last two episodes how comes that after syntra distruction the girl spent more than 4 days walking around the continent while the Witcher maybe 2 days before the event I do not want to spoil. Dialogues are an issue too..: I do not like the millenial slang in a show that take place in a medieval/fantasy time. Donza.
