If you've seen the show already, do yourself a favor and re-watch it before Seasons 2 comes out.  It's a much better show when you already have your head wrapped around the timeline quirks.

This show was one of my pleasant discoveries this covid season. Along with The Umbrella Academy, The Boys, and The Expanse. Excellent shows, and an argument that NOW is the "Golden Age of Televison" with TV replaced with streaming.

The Expanse Season 5 drops Dec 19th on Amazon Prime.

... I must admit that The Witcher is one of the things on my list to re-watch when I cash in the $1000 I won off a Trumper cow-orker betting on the election results for a new TV (4K or even 8K with all the trimmings) to replace my aging basic DLP HD set.

Oooooh, you're expecting a Trump supporter to pay his debts? You know he's gonna try to get out of it by claiming it was illegitimate, right?

Best of luck, but I think Witcher S2 will probably be viewed on your DLP...

It was not as good as the first 6 seasons of Game of Thrones, but much better than the last 2 seasons.

It can be a confusing mess until you realize they're jumping through time as well as locations when changing scenes/characters. It comes together for the most part by the end but is obviously more of a prequel/setup to what's actually coming.

Henry Cavill does a pretty good job for the most part. The first episode has him massacring a group of thieves and I think it was all done in one shot (or at least hid edits very well).

Totally agree. I ended up re-watching it with my wife... and since I had already seen it I was able to explain to her when we were flashing forward or backward in time/space to keep her understanding what was going on. If she'd have just watched it straight, without anyone explaining the context, she would have been totally lost.

Awesome show if you don't have to worry about that confusion though. Part of it is that there's a whole lot of time difference between some scenes they jumped to, but with characters who basically don't age - so it's hard to tell that time has passed. Even for ones who do, like Jaskier (sp?) it wasn't very obvious.

I know they've said they heard the feedback and are planning the second season to be more linear, and be more obvious about when they are skipping forwards/backwards to a different time period. Even if they'd have labelled the start of each scene with a year it was happening in though, the jumping back and forth in season 1 would still have been jarring because they did it so much.

I had zero desire to watch the show based on previews, had a longer break between gigs late last year or early 2020 pre-Covid woes (kinda blurry this year) and watched it with that warning in mind. So, I just let it unfold, and got to enjoy after a few episodes. I might not rewatch season 1, but I will be watching season 2. Fark Entertainment thread spoiler for the win that time!

I always appreciate when a director has enough faith in their audience to pull some chronological shenanigans with their storytelling. I think they pulled it off beautifully in The Witcher. Really looking forward to the second season.

/and the next season of The Expanse
//still have to watch season 2 of The Boys
///and really, really excited for Wheel of Time

Got a LGCX OLED. Well worth it.  And they're as cheap as they've ever been right now.  Being able to produce true black is a game changer.

I have burn-in qualms and brightness concerns... still waiting to see if these come to market and how the reviews are: https://www.trustedreviews.com/review​s​/tcl-8-series-mini-led

The 6-series has gotten good reviews except for viewing angle...

So far so good, on regular TV or any of the built in apps, there's a timeout with a nice firework screen saver, and the PS5 seems to dim after a bit of inactivity.

As far as brightness, i was a bit worried about that as well, and the scene in the beginning of Endgame where Captain Marvel shows up to save Stark quelled any of those fears.  Was practically blinding, which i think is a benefit of the true blacks.  I honestly couldnt be happier with the TV.  There's some dumb interface issues from time to time, but nothing really bothersome.

Wow.  This is kind of a dumb thing to say, considering how phenomenal her transformation was in S1, but ... She looks incredible, in that photo.  She could totally be Yennifer.  I have literally changed my mind.  I think the post-transformation costume is harming my perception.

Maybe go with thicker material at the shoulders and calves, and add some layering at the belly / hips area.  If the heels aren't already 2", that might also be a consideration.  I dunno.  Do this actress some justice.  She can rock it.
