Season 1 Review of “The Witcher”

Cinematography: antithetical
Score & Sound: galvanized
Art & Wardrobe: germane
Story: entwined
Acting: portentous

Nickel Rating: 4/5¢

Cinematography: I describe the camera work as antithetical to highlight just how inconsistent it was, almost as if they hired two DPs, but only one with any concern for lighting. Below, observe how the exterior is a clear day, and then the interior is a sharp, pale, low-hanging sunlight clearly doesn’t match.

Score & Sound: The music and sound design of The Witcher video game series makes the lateral move into this series. It draws you in with its galvanized action, ominous undertones, believable Foley all wrapped in a enticing audio package.

Art & Wardrobe: In tandem with the music, the dreary production design is further highlighted by the consistency of the wardrobe. Simple leathers and bleak colors dominate not only the peasantry, but also the nobility. Perfectly germane to the medieval setting.

Story: Without diving into spoiler territory, the story is told in a very entwined manner, where the protagonists regularly cross paths or visit the same locales one after another. It was fun to watch the puzzle unfold and attempt to work it out yourself along the way.

Acting: Each and every character brings a portentous attitude to practically everything they saw. Everything is of vital, perilous importance. The danger and wrath that every character exudes gets told through action in its meticulous, superb fight choreography. The swordplay in this series is unmatched by any show or film of late.

Nickel Rating: 4/5¢: Other the occasionally amateur cinematography, this series shows strong promise as a series we’ll be discussing for years to come. I’m now even playing The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt on my Nintendo Switch! Toss a coin to your Witcher and give the show a click.

Warm Regards,
Nick Candido
