| High production value won't fix poor writing
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.

Trivia

Vladimir Furdik, the veteran stuntman and fight designer (of Game of Thrones fame who eventually ended up portraying the Night King on the hit show) praised Henry Cavill's fighting skills as the best he had ever seen in his decades long career. Furdik spoke at length at the Eastern European Comic-Con 2019 about the "dance like" fighting style he created for Cavill's Geralt character, "I think Netflix made a very good decision to give the role to Henry because I don't know anyone else in the world who looks like The Witcher. Or any actor, who has as much experience with the sword as Henry. He's a very good fighter. So it was not difficult for me to teach him anything. He put in a lot of hard work in the fights. Another thing was that we could not copy the (The Witcher) video-game. Video games are completely different. If you are going to kill someone, you can kill them from this side or that side or another side. You can put the sword in, in many ways. I hope you like his style, I tried to give him a more dance-like style. Something that is effortless. He goes through the fight as if he can predict what is going to happen. He knows 3 seconds before killing someone how he will kill him." He also praised Cavill's quick learning skills at Karlovy Vary International Film Festival 2019, "Henry is excellent, without him they (Netflix) wouldn't be able to do (the Witcher show), I can guarantee that. I don't know any actors who are that good with a sword and fight scenes overall as Henry is. I have never met anyone who could learn fight choreography for a scene in two hours." Asked if Cavill was better than Furdik's Game of Thrones co-star Kit Harrington, Furdik replied, "Kit didn't have to do such complex moves in his fight scenes (as Henry)."
