I haven't been followed any previous version of The Witcher. I took a break from The Expanse to watch the first two episodes.
Episode 1 wanted to be Game of Thrones. Episode 2 felt like a bigger budget Hercules or Xena. We had this discussion in The Mandelorian thread but I think it applies more here. When I hear anachronisms like "Reverse Psychology" and "Mutations" it changes how I view the show. It wants to be camp on some level but hasn't gotten there yet. Geralt should've hit the minstrel with the back end of his sword and left him unconscious somewhere.
Aaaand she's already pregnant from that gaze. Brave of him to do that when Yenn is right next to him, though she has her head turned. Someone's getting dropped from a portal from a very long height later.
