Any thoughts out there on this so far?
I just finished episode two and while it's not binge worthy it seems fairly decent and better than I had imagined. Episode 1 is absolute burning trash however, a fire of trash with a few shiny trinkets in the flames that push you through the obviousness of trying to capture Game of thrones but failing miserably. Episode 2 looses this wanna be shit and adds the best characters from the books. The comedy weaving in is excellent.
I'm hoping it doesn't loose me but i suspect if they follow the over arching need to be Game of thrones, they will.
Henry Cavil ain't so bad, pretty decent actually but at times I wish they had dubbed the games VA over him. Dandilion is the best representation I've seen of him and Ciri isn't aged enough for me to make a judgement but the actress seems competent.
My biggest complaint so far is not on the shows part but a hope i had that they would follow some of Geralts random adventures first from the last wish before diving and then mid season jump into the whole Destiny arc. That's missing out on the best of the books.
And fuck yes for the two swords!
