Netflix's 'The Witcher' Is Here and Everyone's Arguing About If It's Any Good
It's release day for Netflix's anticipated TV adaptation of The Witcher, and while fans of the fantasy series are obviously hoping for greatness, there's a lot of arguing going on about whether the show is actually any good.

As of press time, The Witcher review scores are all over the map — on Rotten Tomatoes, Metacritic and Twitter — with critics either dolling out some words of high praise or ugly green splats of disgust.

Currently, The Witcher is rocking just a 63% on Rotten Tomatoes' Tomatometer, though the Audience Score is sitting better at 88%. On Metacritic, the show is in the yellow, right now sitting at only a 53 Metascore.

As for the bad, EW ran its review with this blunt headline, "Netflix's The Witcher is nakedly terrible," with the critic writing, "Alas, my destiny is to never watch this borefest ever again."

Among the other haters was The Hollywood Reporter, whose review stated, "Will you like The Witcher if you're a curious neophyte? Maybe, but you have to be patient with it, and if that's not your job, the outsized amusements may not be worth the convoluted build-up."

But for every bad review, there seems to be a good one. IndieWire wrote, "The batshit energy driving a slew of increasingly odd choices makes for a pretty entertaining spectacle."

The AV Club also titled its review, "Netflix's The Witcher is a lot more fun once it stops pretending it's the next Game of Thrones," stating, "When the worst thing you can say about a series is that every episode ends up being better than the one that preceded it, that leaves an exciting amount of room to grow."

Of course, though, the real judge is usually peanut gallery over on Twitter, so we've cobbled together some Witcher reaction — both good and bad — for you below.

Whether you like The Witcher or not, get ready for more, as it's already been renewed for a second season.
