The Witcher TV Show Will Either Be Good or Bad

I’m a huge fan of The Witcher video games. But the new Witcher Netflix show is going to be based on the books. So who knows exactly what we’re going to get. And I’m not sure this trailer provides that good of a look.

I honestly don’t know what to make of what we’re seeing here. It looks well made, but I also don’t know if Henry Cavill can pull this off. They should have given him the beard from Witcher 3, even though it’s not canonically accurate at all. Geralt of Rivia just looks better with a beard.

We’ll see! The Witcher TV show comes out on Dec. 20!

The Mandalorian is Only Two Weeks Away!

The first episode, at least. The Mandalorian is a pretty exciting incentive to purchase the Disney+ streaming program. My family and I are going to get a subscription and have a whole host of shows and movies to watch!

And with the Marvel shows a year away, The Mandalorian is probably my most anticipated watch!

Looks cool! The main character seems badass, his team seems cool and Werner Herzog seems a good choice for moody narrator. And holy cow, those production qualities! Is all of that real? Finally, Disney is doing something really good with all of their money. You want to get people to sign onto your streaming service? Spend millions to make the most ambitious television show of all time!

The Mandalorian and Disney+ arrive on Nov. 12. Remind me to call my brother to get the log in details.

Dracula Meets Sherlock, Hopefully

There’s going to be a new Dracula TV show/mini-series on BBC, from the guys who made Sherlock. I very much enjoyed Sherlock, as well as Steven Moffat’s time at the helm on Doctor Who.

Looks sufficiently spooky and serious. I don’t know what to expect from this new Dracula, but hopefully something as fun and well-made as Sherlock.

She-Ra Coming Soon!

The next season of She-Ra and the Princesses of Power is right around the corner! That means we’ll get two seasons (or three, technically) in a single year! How exciting!

She-Ra and the Princesses of Power is one of my favorite shows on TV…or, technically, Netflix. It’s well-written, well-plotted and the characters are all fascinating and fun. It’s possibly the best revival of an old cartoon. And the new season promises some actual story progression with some big changes!

Needless to say, I’m excited and can’t wait! The new episodes arrive on Nov. 5!

More Man in the High Castle!

There is so much good TV these days. There is too much! How am I supposed to watch it all? I’m definitely going to make time for the fourth and final season of The Man in the High Castle! I love this show! The first two seasons are some of the tightest plotted, most exciting television I’ve seen in years.

The third season wasn’t as strong, and I don’t know what to expect from the new season, but I’m going to watch all the way to the end and hope for the best. I have a ton of faith in the showmakers to deliver a powerful, awesome finale!

The new season arrives on Nov. 15.
