Maithanet Posted February 10, 2020 Share Posted February 10, 2020 Just finished it last night, and I agree it was a successful lightweight fantasy. I thought it was at it's best when it embraces being a trashy monster-of-the-week or good vs evil showdown, rather than trying to be "deeper" and mostly failing. I felt like as the show went on, more and more Yennifer was the main character. In the final episode she drives the entire plot, whereas Geralt looks for Ciri, gets infected by ghouls, and then wanders into the woods to find Ciri. The nudity was definitely to titilate, and at times it was a little distracting. I suppose this is true to the video games at least, which I remember one boarder referring to as "adventures in boobland". However, the degree to which the women drive the plot and dominate the dialogue was nice, and unusual in a fantasy setting. There is probably more woman-woman dialogue than man-man for the entire season (it helps that Geralt rarely talks). I didn't expect to see that here, and it made the show more interesting. Tissaia de Vries's character stood out in particular. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
