What Is It?
The 2021 Netflix fantasy drama streaming TV show The Witcher Season 2.
This is how Metacritic describes this season:
Summary: Geralt of Rivia takes Princess Cirilla to his childhood home of Kaer Morhen in the second season of the fantasy series based on the Polish book series by Andrzej Sapkowski.
This is how Wikipedia describes this season:
The second season is based on “A Grain of Truth” from The Last Wish, Blood of Elves, and the beginning of Time of Contempt.
I actually looked forward to this season of The Witcher after my brother GC & I watched season 1 in 2020.
Season one had flaws, like the time jumping, but we still liked it enough.
Unfortunately, we did not like season 2, this season was: slow, boring, confusing, lacking in detail, and not that much happened.
We saw the first season & I once played a little of The Witcher 2: Assassins Of Kings video game, but we were both confused & lost for most of this season as it jumped around between places & people without explaining: where, when, how, who, et cetera.
We had no idea what all the kingdoms were, which kingdoms were enemies & allies & why, why elves are treated the way that they are, where do the dwarves live, what were the names of some of the monsters & what were their strengths & weaknesses & lore, and much much more unexplained things.
Maybe this season was meant for people who read the books & finished the video games, it wasted our time, but there were some good things about it like: some of the visuals, some of the fights, the magic, et cetera.
After this season, we do not look forward to the upcoming season 3 or the prequel miniseries, my brother GC probably does not want to watch them when they come out; but we will see if we decide to watch them or not.
I would rate this season a 2 out of 5.
