“The Witcher” fans make it clear that “Blood Origin”, which colors the air blue, is neither big nor smart

fans of The Witcher I love the show, but the same doesn’t seem to apply to the spinoff series The Witcher: Origin of the Blood. In fact, some fans say the show uses overt profanity to mask weak storytelling and just a generally lackluster show.

Over on r/witcher, fans are evoking the show’s penchant for using the F-word repeatedly for no real reason other than trying too hard. Just look:

User Ierax29 poked fun at the whole thing, pointing out Netflix’s seeming desperation to have a show as good as the original.

“Netflix: So we heard you say ‘F**k’ like Geralt,” they said. User BhataktiAtma responded with “How the hell do you do that fellow fucking kids?”

This, of course, is a reference to the famous 30 rocks Scene where Steve Buscemi’s character pretends to be a high schooler.

Someone else said, “It’s like that South Park episode where TV executives overdo it with ‘s**t.'” That episode, however, was more of a parody of Hollywood origin of the blood is not.

Others pointed out that it’s like fucking the word in front of literally everything. Some examples:

“The damn winds are damn howling,” “You’ve always been a stubborn damn kid. I fucking loved that about you. F**k” and “and then ciri yells FU**KKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKK.” Fun!

A separate thread also pointed out the dialogue, calling it “embarrassingly bad.”

They also have some issues with other aspects of the show. A big one makes Eredin Bréacc Glas, the king of the Wild Hunt, a sexual being, which is fine, but it became a plot point, and that’s weird considering he’s the most terrifying villain in the games.

User Pumpkin_Tiny pointed out how incredibly out of character it would be for Eredin to use excessive profanity with Geralt after their big in-game fight Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt.

User Processing_Info pointed out that Eredin is so atypical origin of the blood that he would be “too busy hitting his friend” to curse Geralt. While this might sound offensive on the surface, the main issue isn’t that Eredin is gay, it’s that he has a love interest in the first place.

Sure it adds more to the character, but is that really the context we need for a villain?

“It’s even worse than a porn parody,” said user jonomarkono. This is by no means the only negative sentiment out there.

In a post on the Witcher Deep Discussion subreddit r/wiedzmin, user High-On-Cinema broke down why origin of the blood is received so terribly, in addition to the ridiculous dialogue.

“Oh my god, why are they doing this to us? … It’s as if the writers said to say goodbye to every existing witcher lore, and what they came up with themselves was utter rubbish. Aside from the crappy plot and story, none, I repeat, none of the characters are worth remembering or making an impact on viewers.

I think it’s fair to say origin of the blood is not a fan favorite. For those ready to hear a barrage of f-bombs, origin of the blood is currently streaming on Netflix.
