^ The games are set after the books. My understanding is that the book series does end in a conclusion (which I think is covered in the intro fo Witcher 2) and the games are a bit of an "unnecessary" continuation and aren't canon, if that matters. I enjoyed the series. I liked the characters and the world, but I already did from the games. On the differences between the two it didn't bother me, not that I really thought things like Triss not being an American redhead would. I liked the performances, the action, and I stayed up way too late to finish it off. It has its issues. I think some people aren't going to like the way the story is told. Adapting a bunch of short stories does mean it doesn't quite have the same sotry cohesion that you get when you adapt a novel. Maybe there wasn't enough payoff by the end of the season in terms of how much setting up they did, but maybe I notice it more because I have an idea of what's to come as well. The CGI also is a bit more obvious in certain places. Looking forward to the next season.
