I agree. It was pretty low stakes for Disney though. Im guessing the people making the show has some creative control.

If you're talking about Madalorian, it was John Favreau who wrote and produced it. The man is a national treasure as far as I'm concerned.

Yeah, hes quite good. Im more saying it seems like he has freedom to do what he wanted, as opposed to the people who have made the more recent films.

I giggle every time I pass that on the queue.

We watched the first season together and I'm like "cool cool historical drama" then all of a sudden ZOMBIESWTFLOL.

Devs - Written and directed by Alex Garland (Annihilation, Ex Machina). Proper thinky concept Sci-Fi. Thoroughly enjoyed it. As with such things sometimes you have to suspend disbelief, but it's very well done.

Basically. It's a fairly generic high fantasy plot buoyed up by a couple great performers (honestly the next season could just be 8 hours of Jaskier and Geralt bickering and I'd consider it worth watching).

The Witcher is deeply flawed... I'm sure I've had a mini-rant about this already.

They seem to have put a lot of thought into the monster designs in The Witcher.  My main complaint about it would be that there's a lot of timeline jumping and carry on.  Plus, everyone is so clean (unless Geralt has been swallowed whole and reguritated by something) - armour is spotless, et al.  At least it's not as bad as the Sword of Shannara TV series, or Legend of the Seeker (The Sword of Truth book series was pretty average to start with).
