Actor Henry cavil plays the title role in The Witcher but giving a pulse to this dreary medieval fantasy series is too much of a job even for a Superman.

Netflix is unquestionably hoping the show will scratch the sport of Thrones itch, while merely demonstrating how difficult that brand of magic is to conjure.

Here in The Witcher Henry Cavill is Geralt of Rivia, a mutant slayer of monsters, gruffly navigating a world of broadswords and bloody battles.

He is on a collision course with two other characters: Ciri, a young princess unaware of her importance, pursued by forces unknown after her kingdom falls; and Yennefer, a hunchback who—cast out by her family—gradually becomes into her own as a powerful sorceress.

It is based on a series of bestselling books that have also spawned a popular game, this season of The Witcher is burdened by a general stiffness, from the performances to the dialogue.

Despite his arresting look under those flowing pale locks, Henry’s voice seldom rises above a low growl.

One would think a show filled with an abundance of blood, royal intrigue, the occasional orgy, and the fantasy characters like elves and gnomes would have the requisite ingredients to hold up your interest.

There is also a bad habit of repeating key lines of dialogue, to the point where if you took a drink every time someone mentions destiny.
