As someone that typically wants no part of any show that contains magic, I have to say that The Witcher does a better job of explaining the rules of the universe better than any fantasy I’ve ever seen in movies or TV. This makes it feel like there are higher stakes and our favorite characters are actually at risk.
I have a weird relationship with fantasy and The Witcher. I used to think all fantasy was dumb. Then, my GF pulled me into GoT and the political intrigue had me hooked. I started playing The Witcher 3 in between GoT seasons because I needed something to scratch my GoT itch. TW3 just might be my favorite video game of all time now.
As excited as I was for a Witcher series, the movie snob in me could not be convinced that they wouldn’t mess it up. I am happy to report that I REALLY enjoyed Season 1. There were a few things that made me audibly groan over the coarse of the season, but I was expecting to be groaning a few times per episode. I always hated when magic happened in GoT because it never felt earned or explained in any way. If I had known how much magic was going to be involved with The Witcher, I probably wouldn’t have given it a chance. I’m glad that I did because The Witcher has proven that magic can be well done and follow logic.
