‘The Witcher’ Receives Its ‘Honest Trailer’

Netflix

The Honest Trailer has arrived for hit Netflix fantasy series The Witcher.

The popular YouTube series from the Screen Junkies channel turns its sights to what Netflix claims to be among its most successful shows. Indeed, the water cooler series had everyone talking in the weeks and month after release, and there’s arguably still a good amount of buzz surrounding it. So, how did it fare with audiences? Well, with an 8.3 average on IMDb and a Rotten Tomatoes Audience Score of 92%, it’s fair to that, yes, generally speaking, it’s liked – a lot.

“Enter a sprawling fantasy world that seems pretty complicated on the surface, but boils down to a vaguely Polish Tolkien … with swears.”  Yes, the show’s gleefully vulgar moments are poked fun at in the amusing Honest Trailer, as is the fact that – despite being powerful and dangerous – everyone seems ready to mess with Henry Cavill’s Geralt, that our hero mean-mugs his way around with a minimum of syllables, and yeah, those jarring time jumps are also pointed out. Oh, and of course, beeewwwbs.

So, toss a coin and enjoy, as we await for return of this grunter. Season 2 of The Witcher is currently in production, and with a big show like this, it means we probably won’t get the next chapter until sometime in 2021.
