For prior fans of the series, i find it more difficult to please as they have expectations. I think any newcomer would be hooked once they're in a few episodes. Overall, it was very enjoyable.
I've read the books, played all Witcher games at least twice, right now I'm listening to the audio books when driving to work and I find the series almost perfect. There's on actress who did not "convince" me the one playing Triss Merigold, I just can't see her as Triss.

Maybe S2, but yeah, Triss did not seem to be a main character in the show. I was expecting a luv triangle.

Yeah... easily their biggest miss in casting choice. Doesn't resemble any description from the books or games. And doesn't bring anything worthwhile to the character that I can tell. Hope they recast...

#woke

they had to squeeze it in somewhere, so they made the middle eastern dragon protectors & triss black.

i got banned from the sub reddit for making several proofed posts showing how the Zers were light skin middle eastern folk.

not that it actually matters. they did a great job, and were likely B-cast from Black Panther.

Triss though, she brought nothing to the position aside from social justice points, unfortunately. they also uggo'd her, which is weird.

basically put in the opposite of Triss from the books.

R.I.P. Zawarudo, may you OC angels' wings in heaven.
If something appears too good to be true, it probably is.
