It's easy to see “The Witcher” as Netflix's answer to “Game of Thrones,” thanks to its impressive special effects and its big movie star lead (Henry Cavill, previously best known as Superman in the recent DC films) — not to mention its willingness to put blood, guts and naked female bodies on-screen.

《猎魔人》,由于其令人印象深刻的特效和大明星领衔主演(亨利•卡维尔,在最近的DC电影中以饰演超人闻名)——更不用说愿意把血液、内脏和裸女身体搬上荧幕,我们很容易将《猎魔人》视为Netflix对《权力的游戏》的回应。

But in other ways, “The Witcher” feels like a throwback to an earlier generation of fantasy TV, and to shows like “Xena: Warrior Princess.” While longer storylines weave their way through the eight-episode season — and those storylines tie together quite cleverly — the show also maintains an old-fashioned devotion to self-contained storytelling, with Cavill's Geralt of Rivia battling different adversaries in each episode.

但在其他方面,《猎魔人》给人的感觉像是回到了上一代的奇幻电视剧,以及《西娜:勇士公主》(Xena: Warrior Princess)这样的电视剧。虽然在这一季的八集中,故事线变得更长了——这些故事线巧妙地结合在了一起——但这部剧仍然保持着一种老式的自成一体的叙事方式,即卡维尔饰演的杰拉尔特在每一集里都要与不同的敌人战斗。

And as we explain on the latest episode of the Original Content podcast, we both found this to be pretty refreshing. Once you get past its gray surface, “The Witcher” turns out to be delightfully unpretentious, reveling in its pulpiness and occasionally poking fun at its stoic hero with preposterously large muscles.

正如我们最新一期的播客原创内容所解释的那样,我们都觉得这非常令人耳目一新。一旦你忘却了它灰色的表面,《猎魔人》就会变成一部令人愉悦的朴实无华的作品,你会着迷于它的庸俗,偶尔还会取笑肌肉非常大的禁欲主义英雄。

That sense of fun also made us more forgiving of touches like rushed plots and anachronistic dialogue.

这种乐趣也让我们更能容忍情节仓促、对话不合时宜。

And while the setting might seem, at first, to resemble a generic copy of George R. R. Martin, we were both won over by the world-building in “The Witcher”; even though neither of us could keep track of all the made-up countries going to war with each other, we were still impressed by the intricate mythology behind some of the show's monsters.

一开始,这个场景看起来就像是乔治·雷蒙德·理查德·马丁(George R. R. Martin)的翻版,我们都被《猎魔人》中塑造世界的情节所折服;尽管我们都不知道所有虚构的参战国家,我们仍然对剧中一些怪物背后错综复杂的神话印象深刻。
