Yes but most of the stuff in Witcher is good costumes. Problem with flash I have is the Flash itself. Other character like Killer Frost look dam cool. Even Wally looks far better.

Netflix got Frank Castle right. If they were willing to do this right without balking at the cost, I expect it'd be very well done.

At the moment that is a fact, so until any evidence to the contrary it means squat who's making it! As always I advice against "hype", knowing some people just love getting hyped over anything really, but not gonna judge... As with any Netflix "original" stuff it's 50/50, could easily be a miss and that would be just unfortunate! At least they have the right idea and it's not a movie, but that's pretty much the only detail worth noting here, for me obviously./

Kevin James should play Geralt.

Feel free to correct me. I'm right just as often as I am wrong. Or wrong as equally as I am right at least. I dunno I could be wrong about that..

Maybe the author can quit whining about the contract he signed with CD Projekt now.

Hopefully the show is good.

This is my concern also. I've seen too many mid budget shows ruined by lame effects, props and CGI. The Game of Thrones is as good as it is because it's budget (acting talent) and production value is over the top for a show.

He'll whine about this show if he hasn't already.

I don't know too much about the Witcher, but doesn't Sapkowski... not think too highly of the games?

I think a lot of people, especially in this thread, are going in with imagery of the games, is why I bring this up. But it could honestly be quite different from the action packed scenes people are envisioning.

I'd say Sean Bean, but then Geralt would have to die within the first 2 episodes.

Some nice recommendations here for Geralt. I'd love to see Viggo. He was phenomenal as Aragorn. wubsmiley.gif
