And speaking of bad critical reviews (over at the Star Wars thread), this new Netflix show is also getting blasted, and I enjoyed the first episode personally. It got kinda heavy in the fictional names of places early on, but it finished fairly well.

Anyone else see it yet?

Again, I only saw episode 1 so no spoilers please

I started watching this last week.  I'm through the first three episodes.  So far I like it - no real complaints.  I didn't know it got blasted by the critics.  I started watching it because almost all my friend have already watched it and rave about it.

Almost a year later and after trying three times to get past episode 3.....I did it!

Once I got through episode 4 I was much more into it and I wound up liking where it went.  Probably didnít hurt that I read some of the mini series and started to get a better feel for the characters.

Looking forward to picking up the story in Season 2.

Hey, you made it!

I enjoyed the series for the most part. There were some bad spots, mainly due to the rush job the had. Not sure why they fell behind or pushed it to get it done by a certain time, but clearly some of the effects were lacking. Especially
The dragons. The Gold dragon looked horrible!!!

I had heard they were still trying to work on that well until the second they had to send it

Even still, the series finished strong enough for me to come back ... whenever it comes back

Season Two


Finally got started on this season.  Iím two episodes in and Iím LOVING this!  Whatever issues they had at the beginning of the first season have been by far been corrected.  Itís so much better than Wheel of Time.

Like that is so hard!!

I watched the first half of the first episode and so far it is not hitting for me. I really dislike the... let's just say the main love interest (even though she isn't showcased here ... so far) and it is just so visually different than the books, for me, that I struggle with it.
I am sure it is still better than season one, but I personally am not there yet.

Okay, got through the first episode.
I am digging the Geralt stuff, but I still don't like the actress playing Yennefer and it really affects my enjoyment of those scenes she is in, and of course that brings down the show for me. It is like watching a Mark Wahlberg flick, I can enjoy everything in and of the movie until he has a scene and ruins it all with his horrible "acting"
