    Ummm... yeah, sounds like something different.
    It is more difficult to talk about things and events (instead of persons), because this requires a certain amount of intelligence, reflection and information. If we are to talk of things, we must know something about them. (c)

    I will say I am both heavily excited and nervous about this. If they do it right and get the casting, budget, direction, and tone right then it could be a smash hit as big as GOT.

    Being a massive fan of the games while liking the books, I don't know how I would feel about live actors playing these characters I love and not hearing the superb familiar voices.

    I think the perfect foundation for an adaptation has already been done. See the below trailer.

    I really hope that this series turn out to be good. I love the Witcher games and books. A lot is gonna depend on the casting IMO.

    The original was about a "dysfunctional family" or something. They've changed it since:

    The witcher Geralt, a mutated monster hunter, struggles to find his place in a world where people often prove more wicked than beasts.

    I wouldnt mind them just doing the series in good quality CGI like the cinematic trailers from the game, and keep the voice cast from the games as well. That cast is just so perfect for 99% of the characters.

    Live action would have issues with people bitching about casting, quality of the special effects and/or looking too much like Game of Thrones and Lord of the Rings.

    This series just needs to do what it can to stand on it's own and be Witcher and nothing else. I personally feel that going to CGI route would help with that.

    besides, who would they cast as Geralt and company and everyone would be happy with it?
