I’m enjoying it, though Ciri is wet as anything and I’d really just prefer Geralt killing monsters.

Yep I love it! Just watched the last one and am now gutted to have to wait for season 2sad

Watched it, loved it. Can't wait for season 2. Yen is my favourite character.

Toss a coin to your Witcher, O valley of plenty!

I wish they would put it on Spotify

Urbosa - I know Apple have it (my ring tone for DH). Maybe it'll be on Spotify soon?

SiliconHeaven Sun 12-Jan-20 20:46:40

I’m on episode 4, really enjoying it grin

Loving it!
Don't know why so many people have been trying to compare it to GOT. It has nothing to do with it and a fraction of the budget.

Henry Cavill is 🔥🔥🔥

Finished it, I'm a little (ok a lot) in love with Yennifer 😊

MeganChips Sun 12-Jan-20 20:58:41

I loved it, even though DH had to beg me to watch it with him. He was a big fan of the game.

Geralt and Yennifer are both far too beautiful.

Yep I love it too. I agree with needing "toss a coin" on Spotify.

Geralt gives me fanny gallops.

* Geralt gives me fanny gallops.*

He gives mine so many gallops it's just won the 5:15 at Kempton grin

I’m only half way through, it’s very entertaining (even if there is too much gratuitous female nudity)

We've just finished it and really enjoyed it. It was slated on the bBC website the other day though.

@WingBingo fanny gallops!!🤣🤣🤣

It’s the most watched programme around the world at he moment.

Can’t wait for season two.

I'm loving it. But I've read all the books and am well stuck into the game too. In fact I've started my second watching for the details now. I think it's a great combination of the novel and game giving it its own identity.

Someonesayroadtrip Tue 14-Jan-20 21:51:19

Has season 2 been filmed or have we got a long wait? 😂

urbosa Wed 15-Jan-20 08:48:43

Season 2 is only in pre-production, think it's scheduled for 2021 release

Watched the orgy episode last night. T'was very good. I can find loads of covers of 'toss a coin' on iTunes, don't know which (if any) is the original.

Henry Cavill is on insta and posted recently about going into pre-production of season 2.

Do you think it hurts his voice to speak like he does?

AFistfulofDolores1 Wed 15-Jan-20 09:02:00

I'll just put this here ...


AshenQueen Wed 15-Jan-20 09:20:54

I think it was good apart from a few things.

Every episode seemed to focus on very specific moments. I think an episode seeing Geralt just monster killing would be good.

I thought it was strange they don't explain what a Witcher is. To people who haven't read the books or played the games, must be a bit strange?

Ciris storyline was kinda boring and weak.

Geralt is not from Rivia, he's Geralt OF Rivia, which really annoyed me 😂

I thought Yen's story was the best. This season felt like it was just setting up for the others to come, so hopefully it feels more solid in S2.

It stays true to the books and a lot of it is so similar to gameplay in the first Witcher game, which is strange but good.

GeraltOfRivia Wed 15-Jan-20 09:48:49

@AshenQueen I'm sure I read an article with the woman who brought it to screen that mentioned the next series will look at Geralt's history. I'm hoping that mean we see Kaer Morhen.

The changes to Ciri's story compared to the book annoyed me at first but I cAn see how it makes sense in a different format needing to change it a little. Although not explaining Brokilon properly was a frustration too. Maybe they'll fix that next series as well!

I'm on a second watch and still thoroughly enjoying it

AshenQueen Wed 15-Jan-20 10:10:57

Geralt, I think the show hinted at explanations in the next series in the last episode, but I still think, to someone who doesn't know what a Witcher is, Geralt just looks like some guy who takes potions. I hope they do flashbacks of the trials etc and looking forward to seeing Vesemir!

Totally agree about Brokilon. The only change that really bothered me about Ciri, is that she has her (screaming) power inherently, without training, which I think possibly means her story will stray even further in future. I hope she's still going to get her other powers too though, so maybe her time with certain people will come into play with that.

Sorry, talking in riddles in attempt not to spoil it for anyone, that probably makes no sense 😂

Maybe I should watch it a second time too, sometimes you enjoy things better when your not trying to work everything out.
