It actually looks pretty good.

damn, i'm surprised


*I find it weird that Geralt isn't in the trailer more. It's like they're hiding something.

Anyone who has played the games who can attest to whether the trailer looks like it will be faithful to the source material? I've played a bit of the first game but couldn't get into the world much past that. Might give it a shot later in life but I'm pretty cool on medieval fantasy for now.

I didn't play the games but I seem to remember hearing he sleeps with both the blonde chick and the one that looks retarded.

The blonde seems like she's 12. The one who is retarded looks like she has downs. This seems like a problem to me. Unacceptable.

I think they did a good enough job with what's-his-name I didn't immediately say "Oh, yeah, that's Superman."

The blonde is supposed to look 12. Technically, based on the story arc that it looks like, she should be 6. The retarded one appears to be Yennifer before she used magic to be the ageless, hot sorceress. It appears to be very close to the source material based on everything it shows and said in the voiceover. This is all very fresh for me as I am listening to the books now.

They aren't. The staff behind this series is super serial about female empowerment. Expect Geralt to not take up too much screen time.

Why do you speak?

Ciri is basically an adoptive daughter of his. He does not fuck her. It was actually really nice seeing a fatherly side to the cold bastard by the 3rd game.

Yenn has a backstory of having practically a hunchback and other deformations that the games only really hinted at, but she essentially magicks herself into a beautiful woman through study. Kind of a shit plot point but I'm surprised they are doing it.

The books teach you their backstories in tiny pieces scattered throughout the greater story. Based on interviews and what I can spot in the trailer they are going to show these things with a little more depth. I don’t think the lack of explanations in the book series would work all that well with a new audience.

Thanks for explaining. I heard Geralt basically bedded any female who he ran across, so I was a little worried when I saw the kid.

wow impressed. still think Cavill is to muscled up for the role, but it did look good. as long as Geralt is always fighting for his life and barely scrapping by I'll be happy. I always loved his character because he is constantly trying to survive whatever shit he gets into and it's barely at that.

This is based on the novel series the games are based on, not the games. As far as anyone can tell, the series looks pretty faithful to the source material. For what it's worth, the game's weren't all that faithful at all.

Not sure I'll even still have Netflix to bother with this...Disney+ is coming, tons of other non-Disney stuff is leaving Netflix as well, and subscribing to the service feels a bit like subscribing to cable (which I quit doing a decade ago); paying for a few gems in an endless pile of shit.

It's so bad that I have a hard time actually believing that story. Maybe I shouldn't have such a hard time believing that people can be that petty.

LOL. If a progressive touches it, it turns to shit. The New Fundamentalists ruin everything.
