Can I just say that The Witcher Series on Netflix is better than I thought it would ever be. I’m up to episode 5 of season 2, and before the series I had played all three games as they were released (The Witcher 3 is my favorite game of all time). But even after playing the games, there’s so much more of the backstory that I understand better now. I’ll be honest I’ve never read the books or the short-stories, and I admit that’s my own fault.
Nevertheless the TV series is amazing. A lot might not make sense at first, but keep with it. Highly recommended.
