I’m Starting a TV/Movie Journal!

Starting a TV/Movie Journal

I absolutely love entertainment and had the idea to begin a TV/Movie Journal. After having insomnia in December, I’m realizing how many shows and movies I get through in a month.  I want to do more to document them besides just posting on Facebook to my friends.  So I decided to add yet another journal to my collection and begin journaling about the shows and movies I’m loving in particular and also make a note of the ones I do not. 

It’s funny to me because I never really know who is paying attention to me sometimes. So when my friends chime in on my Facebook posts about certain shows or movies we’ve both watched it’s a lot of fun. And I love hearing other’s perspectives on the same shows. So I thought this would be a fun way for me to not only record my shows and movies but to engage an audience and get their opinions as well! Since this project is new for me, I’m just going to jump in and start and hope like the rest of my journals, I find a style that that suits me.  I’m sure this will change and morph over time as I find my groove, so join me on my new journaling journey!

Netflix Show Recommendation: The Witcher!

The Witcher

Synopsis of The Witcher

The show The Witcher is a fantasy show based on the book series by Andrzej Sapkowski. The story follows the adventures of Witcher and professional monster hunter Geralt of Rivia. Tensions are high and a war is on the horizon. Geralt must find his way through a world full of people who can seem just as monstrous as the creatures he hunts. Navigating his way through politics, nobility, and love, Geralt must eventually surrender to his destiny.

Character Thoughts

There are so many wonderful characters in the show so I will stick to the ones central to the main story and throw in my favorite. Geralt of Rivia is a fascinating character. He is a mutant and trained to become a Witcher as a child. The world has preconceived notions and prejudices about him and his character. Viewing him as a ruthless butcher, people are generally afraid of him or have made up their minds to dislike him, despite not knowing a thing about him. And while Geralt can be brutal, he never is unless he has cause. He’s broody and used to being on his own so disturbing his peace isn’t always welcome. But despite his oftentimes apathetic disposition, he cares about people and usually looks for a more peaceful resolution before he’s pushed to violence. He’s observant and practical and I just love him.

Yennefer is a crooked urchin who accidentally portals her way out of danger. Taken from her family, she receives training in the ways of magic by the Rectoress. But Yennefer feels so ugly, worthless, and undeserving, that her self doubts interfere with her learning. Eventually, Yennefer becomes one of the most powerful mages the world has seen. But that power still cannot rub out her feelings of unworthiness and self-doubt. She longs for a child to have something in the world to see her as important. But Yennefer must discover her importance and worthiness comes from within and nothing outside of herself can provide that for her. Such an amazing character, I truly enjoyed seeing her journey and growth.

Princess Cirella is running for her life when her home of Centra is attacked. Losing all the family she’s ever known, Ciri embarks on a journey of survival. On her journey, she meets many people and must figure out who she can trust and who means her harm. On the run from the Nilfgardians, Ciri must also come to terms with her power and her destiny.

The Bard!

Now my favorite character in the show The Witcher is Jaskier, the Bard. Attaching himself to Geralt in order to find adventure for his tunes, he discovers first hand that Geralt is not who people make him out to be. The Bard sort of campaigns through his music to change the public’s perception of Geralt and is pretty successful. He is down for almost any adventure and is great comedic relief when it is necessary. Jaskier entertains me so. His songs tickle me, and I love how his unwanted relationship with The Witcher softens Geralt up a bit. I can’t wait to see more of this character in season two.

Overall Thoughts

If you’re a fan of fantasy then the show The Witcher is a must-see! This show is weaving many threads at once and it can be confusing and difficult to keep up with. They jump back and forth in time between the past and the present, and some of the names are…different. But stick with it. By the conclusion all of the threads, they are weaving come together in a spectacular ending! I cannot wait until season two and have heard they’ve already approved it for three seasons. Just a little tip, consider watching it the first time through with the closed captioning on. It helped me tremendously in getting all the names of people and places in the story down. If you’ve watched The Witcher, I’d love to know what you thought of it so leave me a comment below!
