Post Witcher TV Show

I know a lot of people here played the Witcher 3 games, but now they are adapting the books to a TV show on Netflix. Thoughts?

Would prefer HBO (because GoT), but Netflix has a proven track record by now. I trust it to be better than the Polish adaptations at least. They should take notes from the cutscene in the first Witcher game that neatly illustrates one of the short stories. Personally I've never played the Witcher games for hardware/money reasons and I do feel like I'm missing out. I actually have bargain price deluxe editions of the first two games stowed away, waiting for the day I build a new PC.

I'll be looking forward to this.

We've already had one Witcher series, I doubt that the new one will be more memorable than the old one.
@ScottPress: Bagiński is co-director, so I think he may "take notes" from his previous work.

The second one is good.

The third is a masterpiece, the DLC even more so than the base game.

Witcher 3 hopefully made the brand big enough to warrant GoT levels of quality. Or near it, anyways. Here's to hoping Netflix doesn't cheap out. But honestly, I'm expecting some sort of middle budget, divisive 'Netflix original'.

At least it'll probably be better than the original TV show.

I know some people who bought the books after playing Witcher 3 (and even 2), but I think that a lot of people would be interested in this alternate media.

This definitely has the potential to be amazing. GoT showed that fantasy can be done right, and hopefully this follows that track.

As a big fan of the franchise I hope this is good. However, as some of Netflix originals have proven to be awful, I'll try and keep my expectations low. Sapkowski has been reported as a consultant for the series so I wonder how much they'll pull from the games seeing as how irrelevant they are to the author.

My dream cast for Geralt would be Mads Mikkelsen. If they consider him to be too old, he could always make a good Vesemir.

Great minds think alike.
