Why, o why does season two deviate so immensely from the books? I hardly recognize anything. I would have really enjoyed it had it been closer to the novels but the showrunners had other ideas. They have destroyed a narrative territory that I really had come to like in the cinematographic domain for me. Thanks for nothing.
Viewers, take a look at the 5th picture from episode 4. What do you see? Right, Jaskier performing. By the way, I did not like the song very much, or Joey Batey’s singing. But that is another story. What else do you see? A violoncello. It is true that the violoncello is a fairly old string string instrument to have survived without major changes into its contemporary form, but I still think that it is a far too modern instrument for the kind of medieval epoch that is supposed to be depicted in the story. The violoncello came up in the first half of the 16th century. The Witcher world is staged sometime in a fictional 13th or 14th century.
