I will never forgive this show for its casting. Triss looks awful, she's basically the villain in Tangled.

Jaskier is annoying as fuck, the actor is so bland...

Yennefer of Mumbai is... there, I guess. She's not bad, she's not good either.

Cavill is good but he's trying way too hard to look and sound badass. He makes his voice sound deeper to match the video game's but I don't really see the point.

The show itself was okay, I was expecting more sex and violence but they put a lot of monsters and I'm happy with that.

The dragon looked shit though.

The funny thing is I've seen Cosplayers at conventions/Online do it better than a Billion Dollar corporation.

Hell even the porn parody had better casting (Geralt aside) and probably better acting.

Cavill is a godsend and Episode 3 was amazing. From episodes 3 and 6, the show was what I wanted it to be. The bookends (Episode 1-2 and 7-8) are fairly boring, save for Episode 1's Renfri/Geralt bit.

Yennefer just isn't very good here, honestly. Shame.

I like most of the casting- Geralt, Yennefer, Ciri and my main girl Tissaia de Vries. Not sure about Triss though.

That being said, they sidelined the main character too much in the last 3 episodes, and this basically became a Yennefer show who's involved in the main plot while Geralt basically spends ages doing nothing of note. I literally got exhausted waiting for Cavill scenes to come back up coz we were only getting more Yennefer.

Sidelining Cavill/Geralt was pretty terrible. He's the best part of the damn TV show. I found myself fast-forwarding most of the Yennefer stuff towards the end of the show and I don't normally do that with TV shows.

I started watching it this weekend and only have two episodes left and I didn't really like the show overall for many of the reasons already mentioned in the thread. I don't even know if I'll watch the last two episodes.

Yeah this was my main problem too. Until then, I was liking both Geralt and Yennefer storylines pretty much the same, I guess I did like the Geralt story a bit more due to bias but the Yennefer arc had me hooked too.
But towards the end, it basically became the Yennefer plot with some scattered Geralt cameos and I'd just wait for Yennefer scenes to end so we could see Cavill. But it happened a lot less as we got closer to the season finale.
