    Now that I see the trailer, it's so smart of Netflix to have this come out right after Got ends. Brilliant actually.

    Agreed. And after binge(sleeping) through GoT and now in the final episodes (again).....GoT may be one of the most overrated shows of all time. Snore factory. The Witcher trailer looks like what I hoped GoT would be.

    Did you think GoT "looked" terrible? Because it looks the exact same.

    Whaaa? There's no money on the screen.

    "Witcher" looks a lot closer to "Shanara" and "Legend of the Seeker" than it does "Game of Thrones" --- low rent low fantasy. Shit, even "The Magicians" looks better. Some of those shots look dangerously close to CW level.

    Looks cheap and nasty. Looks like Netflix.

    No it definitely doesn’t.

    GoT had movie level production value.

    This looks like TV. Bad costumes, bad effects, horrible wig.

    GoT Season 1 looks pretty cheesy at parts, but figures it out.

    Witcher is worse than that.

    I liked the look of that. I like that it didn't look too polished or glossy. Could be a sleeper hit, tho quite possibly not among fans of the book/games.

    Looks similar to Got. Not too excited at the moment, it doesn't look better than got's best seasons and although i'm a gamer and would love for this to be a critical succes, I'm wondering if this can stand out. I mean, it looks just a bit too familiar.

    Bit NSFW due to an orgy scene in the background in one shot, be forewarned.

    Not convinced. strange though, now we have a high-profile thing based on a videogame (well, celebrated books, but game too), on a streaming service known for quality stuff, and yet it seems the bad videogame adaptation might continue undeterred.
