Not having read the books and only playing through the first half of the first Witcher video game I didn't know what to expect from Netflix's The Witcher. But after seeing the first season of the show I can say that I'm pleasantly surprised.The show succeeds due to its original dark tone, impressive production qualities and an ambitious cast. Henry Cavill, Freya Allan and especially Anya Chalotra, as well as most of the supporting cast, portray their characters adequately. The series consists of fun and masterfully choreographed sword fights, limited but impressive visual effects, eminent music, beautiful and immersive cinematography which presents the world of The Witcher in a more than satisfying way.Another reason why The Witcher works are its unique stories; every episode progresses the main plot while having one or more just as interesting subplots leading up to gratifying season finale. The reason for that is the shows rich lore consisting of monsters and creatures reminiscent mostly of Slavic mythologies.Like any and every other show The Witcher has its flaws, the biggest one being the pacing. With multiple timelines and character arcs, I was often left confused, however, I loved piecing together who's where and what's happening and when it all clicked in the second to last episode I was left indulged.The Witcher has a little bit of something for everyone, whether you're a fan of the books or the video games or entirely new to this illustrious world, you will likely find something to enjoy.Final Rating: 7+/10
