Well, after 2nd episode I was like: This can now get only better. Oh boy, hard to describe how wrong I was. 3rd episode got everything as wrong as they could have. - - - - To bold part. You are the one who do not understand meaning of sentence which you wrote there. Neither meaning of absolute which I kindly underlined for you. Correct word should have been: "ANY". I mean, that when I predicted temporal issues after seeing 1st episode, I expected that it will be bad at places. But they mix up everything. So, to the relevance. Event that is supposed to happen years before is placed in show after. Which creates breakage in character relationships, behavior, ... I wanted to rate this show based on how close events are to those in books. Which is not hard to do for film makers who can read. But it was so bad in those 1st three episodes that I changed strategy and decided to rate show based on behavior of characters. (How close they are to book. If their code of conduct, morals, decisions match or not.) My bad again. Geralt in 3rd episode is 3/10 of book Geralt. Character at that point is not Witcher, but murderer. (Which they basically made him into right from the start in 1st episode... Since they actually did not show/spoke reasons for his actions.) For now, only one close to book character is Yenn, as long as one ignores actual story errors. So, please... Excuse those which you call butthurt. But I am calling: "Turd is a Turd regardless of dressing you put on it. But feel free to delight in its taste."
