The Witcher S01E05 Episode Review – Bottled Appetites

I really liked this show, It has lots of gratuitous in it, lots of nudity, violence and even a head exploding!  It also had a really interesting story that twisted around and monsters that, for a change, weren’t actually visible! I loved every minute. The meeting between Geralt and Yennefer really delivers! Their get together bubbled with raw energy, sexual charisma, and fun that kept is all entertained. Cavill and Chalotra looked really good together and look physically and mentally well matched, That wasn’t just good acting, it was good writing and direction too.

The Witcher S01E04 Episode Review

This was a terrific episode, the characters are now established and the writers can get on with telling the story without concern for exposition. It is so well written that we were gripped and entertained throughout.  Again, a common trait with all the episodes is that it is just as good, if not better, to watch the shows again – they are just as entertaining. The high points for me were, strangely, the graphics and landscapes.  In quick succession, we saw completely and interesting looking parts of the continent while Yennefer was being chased and fight sequences, whirlwind and bloody special effects were particularly well done.  Production on the episode was perfect.  Direction kept the show going at a pace and the acting was fun to watch end made the episode gripping.  I honestly loved every minute.  Low points were the silly dialogue and daft wedding banquet.  the whole, lets see the suitors and then get them married in the same evening seemed a bit silly to the point of jarring.  maybe I’m just old fashioned.

The Witcher S01E03 Episode Review & Recap – Betrayer Moon

In one of the highest rated episodes, Geralt encounters a Striga, Yennefer is transformed into a beautiful woman and Ciri is in trouble when Dara is shot.

Many viewers and critics considered this episode to be the best of the early season shows and I am pretty sure (even though I’m a sci fi SadGeezer) that it’s not just because of the nudity.  I’m convinced it was because the story was so strong.  In fact I’d go as far as saying that we don’t even need the backstory of Yennefer or Ciri (or Geralt) – if they are all as good as this, most of us would be happy with an episodic monster killing.  Of course that’s not what is going to happen, we still have a considerable amount of story to get through.

The Witcher S01E02 Episode Review – Four Marks

This review is of the second episode of The Witcher. One of the strongest episodes of the season. Direction and characterisation in the episode are perfect!

Many critics thought this was one of the weaker of the episodes in the first season – far from it. It was really good! After watching the show a second time I believe it’s one of the strongest episodes of the season. The performances by Anya Chalotra (Yennefer) and Joey Batey (Jaskier) were marvelous and complemented the excellent Henry Cavill (Geralt) and Freya Allen (Ciri) really well. Casting for this show has been a triumph and it makes the characterisation of the saga so much more entertaining!
