    1. Hope it won't look too trashy like some of the masks in Witcher.

  3. I was looking forward to see one, but the trailer doesn't look promising. I hate when shows are in the dark and I have to squint the other time. The trailer has a lot of darkness in it too!

    1. That is the bane of our modern existence, almost all films and shows are shot in utter fecking darkness. I cannot stand it either and I often wonder how mindboggingly daft does one have to be to waste millions or hundreds of millions of bucks and then make nothing visible in the film.

  4. I don't think the trailer looked too bad. I mean, I'll probably watch this one instead of reading the books for a change, but I do agree that the darkness through most of it wasn't very pleasing.

    1. It would take a lot of time to read all 14 books LOL I often wonder what are the sales for such big sagas. When we do trilogies, the third one sells worst always and nobody even wants to publish anything longer than that.
