Expert Long Rester
The last 2 episodes are where things really pull together.
Having just finished them myself, I agree. Ironically, they are also two of the more Yennefer-centric episodes of the show. Also helps that we get to see a more proactive Ciri as well.The last 2 episodes are where things really pull together.
Yeah, that timeline is... not a good guide to what's happening in the episodes.I'm on episode 5, still deciding whether or not I like it. Trying to follow the timeline is probably the worst part of the show. Nothing seems to be told in any particular order, and it's really hard to figure out passage of time or when events occur. I think I'm actually more confused after looking at that web page.
Sounds like the show probably will lose you at some point.I'd rewatch the third about the Witcher in an instant if the whole show were that good, but the mere thought of having to slog through the paper-thin excuse for having the princess already in season 1 turns me off the idea.
The sorceress story was a bit confused and illogical (it makes me think of fantasy films of old which also had poor scripts where stuff just happens) but it's passable.
Without the Ciri stuff I could stretch my grade to four out of five stars. After all, fantasy with nudity and gore is my favorite genre! That would likely have meant fewer time jumps which also helps.
With it, a very clunky two stars. If it weren't for the genre, I would have stopped watching.
Let's hope Netflix isn't pulling an Altered Carbon on us for Witcher season 2. By that I mean taking a luxurious show with a great script and uncensored, controversial content... and then absolutely destroying everything that made the first season good, slashing its budget, replacing the author's story with generic drek, and pruding up its characters.
Seldom have I witnessed a greater drop in watchability than with AC Season 2... I absolutely loved season 1, yet I lasted only two episodes of season 2.
For me to keep watching The Witcher, that show needs to step up its qualities, rather than down.
Did you know "it's not for you" is sometimes used as code for "we don't want to admit the flaws of the show or discuss how it can be improved"?Sounds like the show probably will lose you at some point.
Tbh, if you can only rank the entirety of season 1 at a 2/5, the show just isn’t for you, IMO.
