    People don't seem to remember that it took three seasons for Game of Thrones to build the number of viewers that turned it into a phenomenon.

    Well that, there can be no doubt. I think Game of Thrones came out at a perfect time too. The world was ready for a good fantasy TV series. After GoT ended, they began searching for other properties to mine, and I think what the games did do was grow an awareness for the property and show that there was maybe something there worth exploring as a TV series. I do think that the novels are fairly obscure.

    And that part of it wasn't even that good. I was actually put off by the fact that the game had cards of women that you'd collect, which felt really skeevy, and I was glad they had abandoned that idea for the sequels.

    I actively try to block out much of Game of Thrones.

    At least this show's got not only a proper (and satisfying) ending, but multiple sequels already built-in. No worries about a dumpster fire here!

    I'll have to pay attention during a S1 re-watch, but did Geralt use Quen(the forcefield/shield thing you see very clearly multiple times in this trailer) at all in s1?

    "I've lived through three supposed 'end of days'."

    I just realized that I've lived through two - Y2K and 2012. :guffaw:

    I only remember him doing The Witcher version of "force push".

    Great trailer, can't wait for the season to start.

    That was a great trailer, this new season looks like it'll be really good. These few couple months are gonna be amazing for fantasy fans, with The Wheel of Time starting in a couple weeks, and this next month.
