Just a quick one today. Even though the Netflix series is based on the books rather than the games, I think it’d be fair to say the interest levels in The Witcher series are high.

If you’ve only played the games and are wondering where his other sword is — it’s on Roach. Equipping both swords simultaneously was a game convenience not core to the books!

Well there we go then. Still titled a teaser, but we have the first real trailer for Netflix’ The Witcher series. Although I suppose honestly, the ‘teaser’ descriptor does fit. It isn’t your typical spill-all Netflix trailer after all, so you can at least watch it without much fear of major spoilers.

But it also wasn’t enough to really create a clear picture for me on whether it will be amazing or utter crud. It could just sit right in the middle as an average show, but I’m not convinced that will necessarily be the case either! The budget seems to be there which is nice. But otherwise… Unsure!

I am now more interested in this than when I saw the first promo shots so I am likely to at least watch the first episode, which I wasn’t beforehand.

I would say the teaser trailer has done its job in that regard.

How good it will be is still anyones guess however…

    Ah fair enough then. I was always going to at least check out the first episode or two and judge on that. So for me it didn’t change anything. But if you hadn’t been convinced even of that yet then I could see how this trailer would be that nice bit of an extra nudge. :D
