    The Rotten Tomato audience scores for Witcher are shockingly low. I never played the games, but the show is the only show I watch or like. I had expected it to score in the high 90s, rather than 70 or 80.

    Why is it rated so low? Is it an issue of the show not capturing something from the game?

    Show is based on the books, which happen before the games at this point.

    I love the show, but if you go in expecting Lord of the Rings or Game of Thrones, you will be very disappointed.

    This is pulpy fantasy stuff.

    I think it's the casting of Yenifer and Triss. For fans of the game, who are pretty ardent and the reason the Witcher has been made as a series, both women were central characters. Love interests, so looks mattered a lot.

    Triss looked like this:

    Yennifer looked like this:

    The actors they chose, whilst talented just didn't have the same vibe re their appearance, they are a different 'type', a different race which seems mental in a story of polish medieval folktale origin.

    I suspect that had a large part to do with it. They changed Triss' hair colour as a nod to the grief in season 2.

    Maybe I'm a racist and didn't realize, but it annoyed me. Usually I don't care about casting and I don't care about different ethnicity being put into these stories but specifically Yennifer, and Triss were supposed to be gorgeous and I didn't feel that way about the casting.

    I haven’t watched the series but I’ve played the games and here are a few of the gripes I’ve read online that people are upset about

    - Almost as if the woke female director tried to besmirch all the male characters, while only giving time and back story to the all female halls of aretuza

    - Re write a lot of characters into inferior versions of themselves - Eskel being stupid, Vesimir trying to kill Ciri.

    - Geralt using Ciri as bait. Again not true to the real source material. Geralt is basically Ciris father, and Vesimir her grandfather, Ves would never in a million years try to kill her with a mutagen

    It is what it is I thought episode one was okay. I didn’t have too high expectations for any Netflix stuff, it’s all the same for the most part - big budget but low brow content

    I'm in the real Norcal in Humboldt County. Jk everyone gets all butt hurt about where Norcal actually is up here. They call the Bay Central Cali which is kinda technically true. I lived in San Ramon since I was 12 after moving from Pennsyvania and considered it Norcal. But people up here lose their shit when you say the Bay is Norcal. Kinda funny.

    This is the only place I've lived in CA, funny people get bent out of shape about it. I'm heading to Redding for a few days over NY, is that considered Norcal enough?
    Sorry Steelers arne't having a good day, buddy.

    Ya wasn't a good day. I haven't drank that much in a while. Twas sad. I consider the Bay Norcal after Santa Rosa it's all small towns full of tweakers, hippies, and pot growers. Should just let Oregon have it.

    The first season was good. Very good. I watched a few minutes of the first episode of the second season, and bailed. Something changed.

    If I were to research it, I probably would find out that some key showrunner was replaced, a member of the writing team left, etc. The show is just "different" and I don't like it. It's slightly "off" from last season.
