Not much in the way of details yet, but it's under development. It's a pretty long series of books, not just a trilogy of games. Don't even know if it's going to be Geralt or someone new in the universe. Whatever it is, something tells me we'll see it sometime in 2018 or early 2019.

Never read the stories, never played the video game. But I'm home doing absolutely nothing I don't want to do for the next three weeks and watched the first four episodes of this last night.

It's great. Dude that plays the main character is nails-on. Also, use of some magic without being too much or of the harry-potter hokey variety. Fight scenes are excellent, dude's moves are highly skilled. And bare nekkid woman's ass and titties. And a set of wolf's-head silver knuckles.

They did do some confusing stuff with the timeline switching. There were a few "Wait isn't he dead? Ohhh, it's a flashback.." moments.

Geralt sure groans a lot... LOL...

I'm new to the series but it feels to me so far like most of this is exposition setting up the real story that will kick in at a later time.

Note to all:This is definitely not a request for spoilers :-)

Good. This is another series I would have liked to see HBO take on post-GoT but so far it seems Netflix is doing a good job.

The first 2 books are short stories that aren’t in chronological order, that’s why it’s somewhat confusing to people that are new. It’s a legit complaint but once they get to the main story the time jumping will stop. Maybe they could have added a screen and put a date on it when jumping between story lines. Geralt and Yen are both over 100 years old.

Just saw something I've never seen before, the Forbes reviewer slamming the EW reviewers for their shit 'work' on their so-called review, one of the ones I mentioned earlier in the thread. Slammed the shit out of them for giving the show an F after watching half the pilot and bits of another later episode, basically asking how people are supposed to trust reviews when the reviewers sit up on their little pedestal and don't even bother to watch what they're reviewing or even do a modicum of research into a character (theyslammed the actor playing Jaskier/Buttercup/Dandelion, didn't even know the character's name). Wasn't referring to their opinion or right to express it, but justifyingly, in my opinion, asking how they can even form an opinion in the first place if they don't make the effort to watch the five episodes they were sent.

Just finished the series this morning. I thought it was well done. I played the Witcher 3, but nothing else. other than about 30 seconds of initial confusion, I had no problem following the timeline switching, but i could see how it might have been a little confusing for some.

Didn't realize it was going to be such a short season. Seven episodes is short, even by today's standards. Definitely want to see more.

If you only saw seven, you have one more to go.

Watched 4 episodes so far. I like it, though I have no idea WTF is going on...I also don't know the books or the games. But it's entertaining as hell.

In the end it all makes sense, this series is the one thatís replacing Game of Thrones. It was amazing,

Story Telling - Satisfying end to season and once you complete season you see the common thread throughout whole season

Acting - Jesus they got Garalt (spelling?) so fucking right, the women actors were amazing to. I genuinely believe the love interest

Fight Scenes - he must have trained for a long time because his moves seem so fucking bang on and natural itís hard to tell...

Honestly Netflix drop your money in this series because there is a void after game of thrones....and my god was this good

No. I watched them all. I just looked at the season about halfway through and thought i only saw seven listed. Still 8 is pretty short.
