I was skeptical of the show for a long time, as so often an adaptation of a book or otherwise doesn’t live up to its namesake in filmography. Especially you get to know a character, but what you see on screen is someone completely different. But just started watching and was very pleasantly surprised that they have adapted it so well to the screen.
Henry Cavill in particular deserves commendation for his role as Geralt. Apparently, he’s played the game himself, and shows. The voice acting is indistinguishable to the point I had to google if it was the same person.
The same soundtracks in the game are utilized throughout the season, and the atmosphere of a Temerian village or a Nilfgaardian court that was so well created while playing is recreated on screen. Fans of the games will not leave disappointed. I would definitely recommend it.

Fun for a bit, I’ll admit, but all eventually disappoint. And let’s face it, you’re a girl. Your mother was right about one thing. We’re just vessels.
