Netflix found huge success at the end of 2019 with their new series, The Witcher. Based on the book series of the same name, the show became a hit among viewers of all backgrounds. The show is not without its major flaws though, and the team over at ScreenJunkies took a knife to them and tore them to shreds! Or did they?

For one, they start the Honest Trailers off by comparing the series, saying it was supposed to be the next Game of Thrones but turned out to be the next Xena: Warrior Princess. Which isn’t a bad thing! Definitely not what the show was going for though. They also point out the hard-to-follow timeline, the excessive use of the word “destiny”, and just how much everyone hates a bard, despite at least one of his songs being incredibly catchy.

While the show is extremely humorless, the video has fun with not only the flaws but the highlights as well, including the fight scenes. If I have to disagree with one thing they said, it would be the excessive amount of “hmm”s Henry Cavill does in the show. It was a nice nod to the video game version of Geralt. ScreenJunkies does have a point about the excessive amount of barf though…

Check out the video below and let us know what you think! What do you think the show’s biggest flaw is? Be sure to come back to Geek Girl Authority for more fun videos. The Witcher season 1 is currently streaming on Netflix.
