The meeting between Geralt and Yennefer really delivers! Their get together bubbled with raw energy, sexual charisma, and fun that kept is all entertained. Cavill and Chalotra looked really good together and look physically and mentally well matched, That wasn’t just good acting, it was good writing and direction too.
This was a terrific episode, and great fun to review. It is so well written that we were gripped and entertained throughout. Again, a common trait with all the episodes is that it is just as good, if not better, to watch the shows again.
The high points of this Witcher Episode were strangely, the graphics and landscapes. In quick succession, we saw completely and interesting looking parts of the continent while Yennefer was being chased and fight sequences, whirlwind and bloody special effects were particularly well done. Production on the episode was perfect. Direction kept the show going at a pace and the acting was fun to watch end made the episode gripping. I honestly loved every minute. Low points were the silly dialogue and daft wedding banquet. the whole, lets see the suitors and then get them married in the same evening seemed a bit silly to the point of jarring. maybe I’m just old fashioned.
Many viewers and critics considered this episode to be the best of the early season shows and I am pretty sure (even though I’m a sci fi SadGeezer) that it’s not just because of the nudity. I’m convinced it was because the story was so strong. In fact I’d go as far as saying that we don’t even need the backstory of Yennefer or Ciri (or Geralt) – if they are all as good as this, most of us would be happy with an episodic monster killing. Of course that’s not what is going to happen, we still have a considerable amount of story to get through.
Many critics thought this was one of the weaker of the episodes in the first season – far from it. It was really good! After watching the show a second time I believe it’s one of the strongest episodes of the season. The performances by Anya Chalotra (Yennefer) and Joey Batey (Jaskier) were marvelous and complemented the excellent Henry Cavill (Geralt) and Freya Allen (Ciri) really well. Casting for this show has been a triumph and it makes the characterisation of the saga so much more entertaining!
This is a detailed review of The Witcher, Episode One of the first season entitled “The End’s Beginning”. It provides a scene by scene analysis of the show and hopefully answers some of your niggling questions. You could also consider this review an episode recap.
This Kings Avatar episode Review covers episode 23 which introduces a key new character to Team Happy. The previous review of The Kings Avatar introduced a different character to the team and this trend will continue for the next few episodes.
Xiao Shiqin tries to settle into his new guild (Excellent Era) and has his work cut out for him because Sun Xiang is not about to share power. We are also introduced to a new cleric, An Wenyi who is far from a healing influence.
This was a great episode that you cannot fail to enjoy. Suddenly we see the saga back to it’s normal game enthused self. Lots and lots off high points,. Su Mucheng was magnificent in this episode and we are introduced to yet important character in the saga.
Oh yeah, and Chen Yehui gets smacked in the face!
In this episode, the cast is quite small (seriously, it’s like half the cast and crew went on holiday) and we don’t get many scenes of Glory gameplay but there is a big bonus for all the Yang Yang fans watching…..
The wonderful Maggie Jiang is taught how to be a good eSports Team Manager from an unlikely teacher. Liu Qiu Shi (who played Xu Boyuan) and Jiang Shuying (aka Maggie Jiang who played Chen Guo) were terrific and saved a rather mediocre episode!
Now that Ye Xiu had his modified weapon and clarified the situation with Jiashi, he felt free to begin the creation of a new Glory fighting/raiding team. This episode was about starting that process.
Chen Guo needed to learn how to communicate with Ye Xiu now that she knows his identity. There were some painful reminiscences of the relationship between his old friends that started Jiashi and a resulting confrontation.
This episode deals with the aftermath of the realisation by Chen Guo that Ye Xiu is actually Ye Qui – the Master. Also the actor who plays Chang Xian gives a great performance – and fun too!
f you thought that last weeks episode caused a bit of an upset, BOY are you in for a surprise this episode! There were upsets all over the place.
The production was marvelous but I’m not sure the viewing audience were that bothered about how Tiny Herb were nurturing their next Team Captain. It had great game graphics as usual, but was a little lacking in gripping story-line.
This was another great show that tied up some bits and introduced some great characters (including Han Wenqing – a key rival character (i.e one of the few that are ever in danger of kicking his ass!)
Review of The Kings Avatar: 全职高手: Episode 10 – Quan Zhi Gao Shou , 电视剧全职高手 , Dian Shi Ju Quan Zhi Gao Shou In the last episode we saw an army of professional Glory players working in a coordinated manner to stop six unsuspecting players from going shopping in Kongji City. Yep, pretty mean, imagine if […]
Other guilds are getting annoyed that the monopoly of achievements and in-game-credits for the larger guilds is broken – the saga is hotting up! In this King’s Avatar Episode 9 Review, Little Moon managed a not so little achievement to help save his guild, Yue Lun. We are also introduced to a new tactical genius who is also VERY shy and not a very good player. But best of all, we watch a lot of naughty players from other guilds take on our heroes – will they win? Lets see.
In this episode, the Super-cool Steamed Bun meets the Wimpy Yifan. The newly formed ‘Fellowship of the Grim’ is challenged by other, jealous guild-members (who organise a mischievous ‘ganking’) and we get to see the magnificent Kongji City
Review of episode 7 of The Kings Avatar quanzhi Gaoshou) – not the best episode but still great. We learn more about Yu Wenzhou and we are introduced to Qiao Yifan from the Tiny Herb guild – a new core team player in the saga.
Review of episode 6 – this show is possibly the best so far. We are introduced to two particularly interesting players, we see Sun Xiang getting a lesson and we also got to know about other guilds besides Excellent Era and Lanxi Pavilion. The best bits were in the beginning though – Terrific Battle between Blue Rain and Excellent Era
Episode 5 Review: This episode helped us better understand the characters that are portrayed in the show and we didn’t get the same feeling that Ye Xiu was such a smug git in this one. In fact, he was much more laid back.
We see how Ye Xiu upgrades the 1000 Machine Umbrella and how he is alienating himself from the other guilds and raiding teams in the game. Although this may well be part of his tactics. The story was well told and great to watch, the pace was just right (not too quick and not too slow).
In this episode we are introduced to a new main character and a couple of new support roles. We also learn of the relationship between Su Muchen and Ye Xiu and how Chen Gou knows Tang Rou.
This episode concentrated on the character Belo. It was about how difficult it is to make friends when you are a high functioning demon. This was a great episode, but I’m hoping that we can get into some proper stories next week rather than character introductions.
Another really good episode. The humour sucked-pants to be honest, but that’s the only poor part of the show. Yang Yangs is settling into his role effectively and the lovely Maggie Jiang brings a charm and fun aspect to the show that the forced comedy sketches missed out completely.
There was nothing I disliked about the show except possibly Ye Qui’s hardcore team boss attitude which was disappointing as it was too predictable – The graphics of the game were amazing and made me want to play it – the game doesn’t exist of course, it’s just a platform for the show, it still looked real though.
