As much as I don't agree with changing skin color to appease the masses, unlike the new star wars movies I didn't get any social warrior vibes from this show at all.

I've not read the books or played the games (though I do have witcher 2 on my 360 but never got around to playing it and I tried to buy witcher 3 two days ago but because of the show it's sold out everywhere I went) and I believe that most of the people who are watching the show are in the same boat.

Changing a few characters skin color, as long as it doesn't negatively affect the source material, in order to make the show more accessible for a wider range of viewers isn't a huge issue for me.
more accessible meaning that people will only watch a show if their "race" is represented? that is something I just can't relate to. It's not like the target audience for Witcher is kids because it has nudity and sex scenes, is there really that large a demographic of older viewers that are basically closet racists? :D

Wait
Women and blacks wouldn't watch the show otherwise?

The hunchback bird's about to get naked.
Times like these I wish I could make my excuse to go out for a cigarette.

Wait for the season finale.

Mages with cleavage.
Fighting against evil.
With all their magic. And cleavage.
I'm not kidding.

I loved it.

Mentioned before but it's been a bit busy. My mother's name was Cintra. She was one of the most posh (but lovely) women ever. She would have been mortified by this. She used to have to turn off pre watershed soap operas when then got a bit sexy.

Oh come on
Dont you GSP her. ;)
No joke, I still have a bottle of Powerade on my night stand unopened from last night because I'm that much of a weakling I couldn't manage to open it. (irony, Powereade) but I'm pretty sure I could put together more than a 60 second ordeal if I had to. Ya know.

POWERade, because its name makes you think it'll make you strong. But if you're too weak to open the lid and drink it, how are you going to be stronger?
Its what I thought initially.... guess I was thinking about a deeper meaning... which means I'm just tired.
