I'm on episode 4 and I actually like it.  I haven't read the books so I have no idea how it compares with the original story.

I am specially intrigued with various timelines in the show and curious as to how (or if) these would eeventually converge.

Awesome series. Henry Cavill did an awesome work as Geralt. cringe moment though on the game of thronenesque machinations on the opening on the last episode for Season 1  ;D

I'm at episode 2. So far, medyo nagiging interesting na siya. not sold on Cavill as Geralt, though. he's too much of a pretty boy. Geralt looks gruffer and older.

Mas bida pa si yennefer kesa kay geralt.
Parang dumb strategy yata for the mages to make a stand without an army. Also, bakit sila nagbarko at naglakad, di pwede mag-portal?

As usual laging huli dumating ang mga pulis (King Foltest and Temeria's army).
Teleportation is an advanced ability not all sorcerers can do it. Also energy draining, limited by distance and dangerous.
Sa game meron nag teleport kalahati lang ng katawan ang nakarating  ;D

Season 1 was made with fans in mind. Sa dami ng backtracking you will have to rewatch in order to understand how the timeline goes.
Overall I'm satisfied looking forward to season 2, playing the game again in ps4.

I concur...The Witcher is a slow burn but delivers particularly at the last two episodes

Netflix's 'The Witcher' Casts 7 More Actors for Key Roles in Season 2

The Witcher has added seven additional cast members to season two in roles recognizable to the fans of Andrzej Sapkowski's books.

Here are the new castmembers and their official character names. The descriptions of the characters, however, are from the books and games, so those might change in the show.

Adjoa Andoh (Bridgerton, Silent Witness) in the role of Nenneke. In the books, she's a priestess of Melitele, and the head of the Temple of Melitele.

Cassie Clare (Brave New World, The Bisexual) in the role of Philippa Eilhart. She's an advisor to Redania’s King Vizimir II and leader of the Lodge of Sorceresses. This casting was previously reported as joining the show on several fan sites, but this is the first time her casting has been confirmed by Netflix.

Liz Carr (Silent Witness, Devs) in the role of Fenn. Fenn was a partner in a law firm and detective agency in Dorian.

Simon Callow (A Room with A View, Four Weddings and a Funeral) in the role of Codringher. Fenn's partner.

Graham McTavish (Outlander, The Hobbit) in the role of Dijkstra. He was a master spy and head of special forces for the kingdom of Redania.

Kevin Doyle (Downton Abbey, Happy Valley) in the role of Ba’lian. Another casting that was previously reported on fan sites and being confirmed for the first time. This is apparently a new character.

Chris Fulton (Bridgerton, Outlaw King) in the role of Rience. A a mage who was instructed to find Ciri after she disappeared during the slaughter of Cintra.

The season two storyline: "Convinced Yennefer’s (Anya Chalotra) life was lost at the Battle of Sodden, Geralt of Rivia (Henry Cavill) brings Princess Cirilla (Freya Allan) to the safest place he knows, his childhood home of Kaer Morhen. While the Continent’s kings, elves, humans and demons strive for supremacy outside its walls, he must protect the girl from something far more dangerous: the mysterious power she possesses inside."

From ComingSoon.Net

Laurence O’Fuarain Will Lead the Cast of The Witcher: Blood Origin

There’s a new addition to the cast of The Witcher: Blood Origin. According to Deadline, Irish actor Laurence O’Fuarain has sign on to play the leading role of Fjall in the upcoming Witcher spinoff. Fjall’s character description says that he is part of “a clan of warriors sworn to protect a King, Fjall carries a deep scar within, the death of a loved one who fell in battle trying to save him. A scar that won’t let him settle, or make peace with himself or the world around him. In his quest for redemption, Fjall will find himself fighting beside the most unlikely of allies as he carves a path of vengeance across a continent in turmoil.”

O’Fuarain previously had a role in the Game of Thrones season 5 finale where he portrayed Simpson. He also played Hakon in History’s Vikings series.

The Blood Origin cast also includes British model and actress Jodie Turner-Smith as Éile. This spinoff is an original limited series that will consist of six episodes.  Andrzej Sapkowski is a creative consultant on the show with Declan de Barra as showrunner.

Here’s the official synopsis from Netflix:

“In an elven world 1,200 years before Geralt of Rivia, the worlds of monsters, men and elves merge to become one — and the very first Witcher arises.”

Netflix has yet to announce an official release date for The Witcher: Blood Origin.
