Review :

Initially I thought it might be another Game thrones like show as the cinematography gave of very similar vibes. Forgive me but while watching it I had no idea that this series was actually based of a book series. I was totally engrossed in the story from the first episode itself. More than everything else I loved the way of storytelling. Everything was well placed like the elements of mystery, elements of plot build up, the characterisation. It is really good.

To be honestly speaking I can't say much about it more than this as the story is yet to be revealed further as the next seasons are aired until then I can surely read the books and find out as I can't really wait at a cliffhanger for a long time. But if you ask me, I loved the acting, the cinematography, the storytelling, overall its worth a watch for this season. I'd surely recommend you to check it out.

If only one thing I would've wished to improve is give more insight on how the world worked, like the world map, etc. In Game of thrones we could see in the beginning the map, wall, etc. I know if would be quite unfair to compare it with GOT in first season itself but I feel they both are really really close in a lot of things right from cinematography, fantasy plot with tons of naked scenes, gore ( Although it has it a bit less than GOT as of now ), mystery surrounding a single main 'destiny' element. In fact it many ways its one a similar track. Let's hope it doesn't end up GOT. That would be a huge disappointment for sure.

Below this you should expect spoilers. Don't read ahead unless you like some spoilers. Share the article and do comment your thoughts if you have seen the season 1 or have read the book.

While speaking of characters I liked Geralt more than others. Yennifer was fine, she didn't have my attention much as a character but I felt it could've been better if she is indeed the female lead ( at least for first season). I wish the dragon hunt part was explained a bit more, maybe the red dragon shifter ( that's what I expect it would be as there wasn't much info on it, or might have missed it who knows).

I liked how Geralt was given the 'white wolf' or per say a white knight title image. I was actually thing they would pair him with princess but then the whole time shift was revealed and I realised they might make it a father-daughter dynamic and it sort of happened. I can't comment more on the story as I am actually next reading the books to find the whole thing out but by just the webseries I can say overall it was really entertaining. Give it a try you might like it.
