A new television series based on the best-selling books and video games “The Witcher” will be hitting Netflix on December 20th, but the first reviews are already coming in, and they are overwhelmingly positive.
In fact, some early reviewers are saying they liked it better than Game of Thrones, or at the very least, the fight scenes are better, which is still quite a compliment.
The witcher is a series of fantasy novels written by the Polish writer Andrzej Sapkowski. In the series, a mystical monster slayer named Geralt of Rivia goes on a variety of adventures in a fictional world called “The Continent.”
Sapkowski created a language for the series known as Elder Speech, which is loosely based on Welsh, English, French, Irish, Latin, among other languages.
Below are some of the short teasers and reviews that have been posted to Twitter.

Oh I will say this. The fight scenes in The Witcher make Game of Thrones fight scenes look like two drunks fighting outside a bar.

Watching the screeners for @witchernetflix. I'll admit, as a huge fan of the books, I was a little worried, but @LHissrich has done a masterful job telling this story. It also helps that the cast is amazing! And Henry Cavill, just … wow. #TheWitcher pic.twitter.com/xdFnYtRN4j

In a recent interview with Comic Book, executive producer Tomek Baginski revealed that the first season will not be long enough to cover every story in the first Witcher book, which is titled “The Last Wish.”
The first book in the series is a collection of six short stories, so it can fit well into the television series format if done correctly. Baginski said that there are only eight episodes in the first season, which made it a bit more difficult to fit every story into the season.
The video games based on the book series have been very successful, and as of March 2018, they have sold over 33 million copies worldwide. There have also been comic books based on the novels. From 1993 to 1995, The Witcher was adapted into six comic books by Maciej Parowski, Bogusław Polch, and Sapkowski himself.
This is actually not the first time that a television series was based on The Witcher books. A 2001 film called “The Hexer” that was turned into a television series in 2002 was also based on the witcher.
However, these renditions were not well received by Sapkowski. This time, Sapkowski was hired as a creative consultant for the new television series, to ensure that the final product will be as authentic as possible.
It seems that fans of the original books can rest easy about having a proper representation of the story on Netflix. In the new Netflix rendition of the story, the main character, Geralt of Rivia, will be portrayed by Henry Cavill.
Schmidt Hissrich will be the executive producer and showrunner for the series. Hissrich is best known for her work writing and co-executive producing on The Defenders, Daredevil, and Power.
Sean Daniel is also listed as an executive producer on the team, along with with his partner Jason brown at the under the Sean Daniel Company. Tomek Baginski and Jarek Sawko of Platige Image are also listed as executive producers.
All 8 episodes will be available upon release, so you’ll be able to binge them all right away on December 20th.

Tekashi 6ix9ine Says There’s “No Difference” Between Him and Tupac
Tekashi 6ix9ine has claimed there’s “no difference” between him and the late Tupac Shakur.
In a recent interview with The New York Times, the controversial rapper discussed everything from his sentencing, whether he regrets being part of the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods, to pleading guilty to use of a child in a sexual performance. The latter when he compared himself to Tupac.
The interview came just days before the rapper released his first album “TattleTales,” since being released from prison.
In February of this year, Tekashi was facing years in prison after pleading guilty to charges of – firearms and racketeering; now, more than six months later, he has more than one billion views accumulated on YouTube in just four months.
Tekashi’s real name is Daniel Hernandez. Hernandez said he plans to “just keep dominating” and stay out of trouble.
Tupac came up when Hernandez was discussing his plea of guilty to the use of a child in a sexual performance. He was seen in videos imitating graphic acts and touching a 13-year-old while she performed sex acts on other men around him.
Hernandez who was 18 years old at the time of the situation, expressed that he’s not a “40-year-old Jeffrey Epstein-type.” Adding that he’s now “a true inspiration to the kids.”
Tekashi was then asked, “Do you understand the view that you don’t need to be a public figure, that you don’t deserve to be famous, based on your real-world actions with real human victims?”
In which Hernandez replied:
No, I don’t. Tupac Shakur was convicted of rape. Is Tupac Shakur loved or hated? Loved! What’s the difference between me and Tupac Shakur?
For our younger readers, Tupac Shakur was convicted of first-degree sexual assault in 1994 and was sentenced to 18 months to four-and-a-half years in prison for the offense.
NYT interviewer Joe Coscarelli argued with 6ix9ine that Tupac “tried to give back with his work”. While Hernandez claimed his music was helping the world too. However, Coscarelli closed that discussion calling Hernandez’s songs “turn-up music, but it’s not introspective.”
Hernandez then played Tupac’s Troublesome ’96 to Coscarelli and told him.
“What’s the difference between that and Billy? “A born leader, never leave the crib without my heater!” You’re telling me he gave back through his art? You’re lying to me.”
Coscarelli responded to Hernandez and said he has only “one type of record” while Tupac was “multifaceted” with different types of songs. Tekashi answered, “I got to feed what, in 2020, is relevant. I got to feed the masses. There’s no difference between me and Tupac Shakur.”
Hernandez ended the interview with, “Keep hating me, because you’re going to keep tuning in.”
It’s very interesting to see Takashi compare himself to Tupac Shakur and make a mention of Jeffrey Epstein in the interview. Although, Hernandez seems to be one of the most hated in rap for his snitching and flaunting it. He has turned his life around somewhat and has managed to release a new album featuring big stars, including Nicki Minaj, Smilez, and Akon.
Maybe, Hernandez can learn from Akon (Aliaume Damala Badara Akon Thiam) who is using his influence to help and give back to the world, mainly Africa by building the world’s first crypto city, as Anewspost previously reported.

Kanye West Tweets About Divorce And Claims Movie “Get Out” Was About Him
After entering the race for the presidency extremely late, rapper and entrepreneur Kanye West appears to be in the midst of a mental breakdown, and is going through some difficult times with his family as a result.
During his first campaign rally in South Carolina, West became very emotional and started discussing some very private things about his personal life, including the fact that he considered having one of his children aborted. His family reportedly wanted to have him committed to a mental hospital because they were so concerned about his mental health as they were watching the rally. West says that this is not the first time something like this has happened, and later posted to Twitter that the movie “Get Out” is about him.
After getting home from the event, West posted a rant about his family on Twitter, but later deleted it. In the posts, he revealed that he and Kim had been considering getting a divorce for a while now. He also called his mother in law “Kris Jong-Un.”
Sources later confirmed to the media that Kim Kardashian, has begun contacting lawyers about a divorce. However, Kardashian later made a post on her Instagram page asking for privacy and compassion, and discussing her husband’s mental health issues.
In the post, Kardashian wrote:
“As many of you know, Kanye has bipolar disorder. Anyone who has this or has a loved one in their life who does, knows how incredibly complicated and painful it is to understand. I’ve never spoken publicly about how this has affected us at home because I am very protective of our children and Kanye’s right to privacy when it comes to his health. But today, I feel like I should comment on it because of the stigma and misconceptions about mental health. Those that understand mental illness or even compulsive behavior know that the family is powerless unless the member is a minor. People who are unaware or far removed from this experience can be judgmental and not understand that the individual themselves have to engage in the process of getting help no matter how hard family and friends try.”
In the days that followed, a long list of celebrities made appearances at West’s ranch in Wyoming to offer support and see how he was doing.
In an interview in 2018, Kanye admitted that he became addicted to opioids when they were prescribed to him after he got liposuction. The addiction may have contributed to his nervous breakdown in 2016. He has also said that he has been suicidal at times. In a 2019 interview with David Letterman, he said that he has bipolar disorder.
Kanye is also promoting a new album, and some people have suggested that his recent antics have been some sort of a publicity stunt, but anyone with a friend or family member who suffers from bipolar disorder can recognize the telltale signs of a mental breakdown, and West is clearly in the midst of one. Luckily, it appears that he may have recognized the error in his ways, because he later posted an apology.
I would like to apologize to my wife Kim for going public with something that was a private matter.
I did not cover her like she has covered https://t.co/A2FwdMu0YU Kim I want to say I know I hurt you. Please forgive me. Thank you for always being there for me.

As for West’s presidential run, it seems that there is no chance of him qualifying in any of the 50 US states, but it is still possible for him to make outrageous statements on his Twitter account.
