High production value won't fix poor writing
21 December 2019 | by SirJustinSee all my reviews

I've read books, I'm a fan of video games (especially the 3rd part). So, after binge-watching the entire season 1, I'm really sad to admit that the Witcher TV series is a major disappointment. The root cause of most problems with the series is, without a doubt, bad writing. It is because of poor writing that fantasy series with a great storyline, huge fanbase and developed universe still feels like a B- grade TV production. No matter how much money Netflix has poured into the Witcher series, the lack of character building, the plot-jumping, the laughably unrealistic dialogues - all of it makes it nearly impossible to enjoy the show.
