I’ve been watching a show based on a series of books. Perhaps you’ve heard of…THE WITCHER? Magic and medieval-ish costumes and monsters and a brooding hero equals fun, albeit some nudity, sex, adult language, and a very confusing timeline. Really confusing. Like, it took me three episodes to figure out that we’re moving back and forth through time as the story’s being told. By then it’s charming and cool (imo), but still somewhat unnecessarily tangled. I liked it, and I still do, but as someone pointed out: why make the timeline unclear? What is the purpose? There isn’t a good one, except for suspense. But suspense shouldn’t be built on near untangle-able chaos. You risk losing your audience.
What are your thoughts? If you’ve seen the show, did you almost give up? Or maybe you’ve read the books. I’d love to hear from you in the comments. Tell me what show/s you’re into. I could do with a good binge.
Keep your nose in a book,
