Toss a coin to your Witcher, Geralt has once again made it into your living rooms, this time on the Witcher TV show on Netflix.
Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No! It’s Henry Cavill as a Witcher instead of Superman this time.
The Witchers timeline:
It’s been a while since I played the first couple of Witcher games now. With The Witcher 3 being so good, it’s dominated all of my recent Witcher time.
So with it being some time now since my last play of the first two, it took me a while to work out where the story is set.
The story is set before any of the events within the games had taken place yet.
Ceri is only a child and Geralt hasn’t quite made the name for himself yet that he possesses in the games.
The series is based on the Witcher’s writer’s book The Last Wish. This can purchased from Amazon.
The Witcher Season 2:
Since the series was released with all 8 episodes coming out at once, the world has been binging on The Witcher recently.
The show has earned itself some well-deserved rave reviews which have now already led to Netflix confirming season 2.
The second series had already been confirmed before series one came out. However, the incredible reviews have really helped to cement the second series.
I’ve tried to keep this one short and sweet. The Witcher TV show is too good to even risk spoiling for you.
The cast does an excellent job of bringing Andrzej Sapkowski’s world to life, as does the European environment in which the TV show was filmed.
Every bit of the show seems incredibly authentic and draws you in from start to end. In fact, I had planned to watch one episode during the evening of release and ended up stumbling into bed at 4 am after watching the entire series in one sitting. That’s how addictive I found the story.
You may think “D&D style TV show, that will be a great one to watch with the family”. My advice; don’t do it!
From scary monsters to dismemberment, there are plenty of reasons for this show to be 18 rated. The fact the show almost has as many boobies as Spartacus and Game of Thrones is another reason to keep this one out of view of the kids.
