    as much as I enjoyed the first season

    yeah I prefer, if we’re going by the games, the Temerian or Redanian armors.

    some of the Kaer Morhen outfits were cool, maybe they are working towards those?

    yes I’m aware, I’m just using examples of outfits I like, I literally said ‘if we’re going by the games’

    and though I don’t expect the show to use any of them exactly, I wouldn’t be surprised if they aren’t inspired by the game aesthetics a bit

    that doesn’t mean it’s the most known thing ever

    that just means it’s common on your feed

    You know that scene where Fredrik climbs out of the bath is probably the thing the Witcher thread is best known for.

    I didn't mean it was the most known for the witcher, but it is what everyone thinks from the games when seeing a bath scene. I know the witcher world pretty well, maybe been a while since visited it.

    Filming is in Hodge Close Quarry. Thats 30mins from where I grew up and a location where I learned to scuba dive to depth (30m to the bottom)

    It's a hell of a location to get to though

    Firstly, that's supposed to be the most beautiful woman in the world? o_O

    Secondly, she's pregnant? WTF?

    I think if see are more closer look she might look better and we know that some stories will be new so we can get more of her then she is in the books, maybe they want her to be a mother as she's the mother to all elves.

    But that's completely against the spirit of her character in the book. She sees herself as a mother to her kingdom, to her people, precisely because she cannot have children any more.

    I'd rather they made a good and faithful adaptation of the actual books and the stories within them, not play fanfic on a Netflix budget. I mean, I understand and accept some changes need to be made to translate the story from book to screen, but I feel that so many changes are being made just for the sake of changes, or because someone thought it looks cool.

    I used to be optimistic before the first series, now I'm not so sure. The weakest bits of the first series are almost all the stuff invented for the show.

    I'd like to say its going to be part of a flashback sequence thing (that they've done in season one a lot) but as she's with Fingilla, I doubt it

    I thnik the Yennefer back stoery was great and Francesca can be good to, A full faithful adaption i think is wishful thinking. There are going to some new original stories around the adapted stories to ive characters like Yennefer, Francesca, Triss Frangilla and other witches more to do as they are almost cameo roles in the books and the show wants to expand on them.
