First of all its not game of thrones, its a totally different universe
22 December 2019 | by sangmesh27See all my reviews

The acting skills, direction, production quality of the show is top notch, henry cavill is superb, first being a avid fan of witcher books and games i was a bit skepticle on seeing the trailers etc, but oh my!!!!, The show is just plainly good. Some people comparing the show to GOT, because they dont have any knowledge about the witcher universe and comparing mainly on the basis of swords and clothes they see. A fan of witcher will truly love and enjoy the show. Henry cavill is the real witcher...... Lol
