As an avid gamer and a big fan of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt as well as The Witcher books by Andrzej Sapkowski, I was both excited and apprehensive about the Netflix series. I can happily say, I enjoyed it greatly. The characters were just as they were in the books and game. The writers and actors did a wonderful job bringing them to the screen and I’m really looking forward to season two.
As a quick note: The first two Witcher video games are not nearly as good as the third one. Don’t waste your time on them.
PBS is killing it this year. The latest great thing is that Endeavor Season 4 is out now. For those that don’t know, Endeavor is the prequel for the Inspector Morse series that ran from 1987-2000. If you’ve never watched those, they’re available on Netflix. Inspector Morse was followed by Inspector Lewis, which is also a great show. Endeavor explores Morse’s early career in the sixties and it’s really enjoyable mystery television. Check it out.
Have y’all seen the three-part BBC drama Remember Me on PBS this month? If you haven’t, you should. It’s amazing. It’s Michael Palin like you’ve never seen him and the rest of the cast is incredible too. It’s creepy and has some shock moments, but mostly it’s just really compelling television.
