The Witcher is a series that had came out on Netflix about a year ago, but it took me until now to see it. I had heard of the video games, but I had no idea that it was based on a book series from a Polish author. It apparently was a great success for Netflix, so I knew my watching it was inevitable.
The Witcher is about a magical monster hunter named Geralt of Rivia. His type of humanoid are called witchers, and they basically do mercenary work but mainly towards mythical like monsters. But the monsters he fights are very very real in his world.
But Geralt is not immune from the local politics of the continent. One of the greatest kingdoms has been invaded successively, and it seems to be his destiny to save it’s last remaining royal, a young princess named Ciri.
But there are many types of people and creatures in the world. We also see the journey of Yennefer, a disfigured woman who becomes a witch. She becomes more powerful in time, and makes herself beautiful. It is only a matter of time before she meets Geralt.
Overall, The Witcher is a pretty good series. It’s not very long at eight episodes, so won’t be able to binge very long. This is definitely one of the best series I’ve seen, especially now that Game of Thrones is over. I assume season two will come out not long from now, and I highly look forward to it.
