According to the average ratings of the aggregator Rotten Tomatoes, The Witcher Netflix series received a fairly lukewarm reception from critics.
According to Rotten Tomatoes, which deals in a reasoned way to aggregate the judgments expressed by film critics on films and TV series, the Netflix series of The Witcher was received with a certain coldness, stopping at 61%. The public’s opinion was much better, reaching 89%. This is a typical scenario since normally the public is much more prone to judge by venting the emotions aroused by a long-awaited product in extremely polarized judgments.
However, according to some critics, the new Netflix series is a wasted opportunity, others consider it redundant, others still poorly recited. On the other hand, there are those who have appreciated the staging and the rich characterization of the characters, saying that fans of books, video games, and fantasy, in general, will certainly like it. However, many have pointed out that this is basically an introductory series, in the sense that the following will have to be expected for the story of more important events.
