    But good luck Netflix! Kid shows about good guys killing monsters with magic are still fun.
    So the Boy in the Striped Pyjamas? Kids media can touch on some super dark stuff, it covers a large range of ages and development stages.

    Apparently CDP started recruitment for "open world RPG" recently, but the setting is unknown. Could be a big DLC for Cyberpunk, could be a new IP, could be W4.

    Oh, it seems I have it, all 3 even, I'm a bit of a completionist sometimes, in odd ways (I have loads of books n bookshelves, I might have read as much as 5%, if that)...must have gotten them really cheap on one of those pre-christmas sales, i see the command n conquer rts is on 50% now, hopefully lower before xmas

    I'd comment except I have no idea what you are referencing - sorry. Never heard of it.

    But while I agree on the rest of what you said (kids media can be dark - large range of ages etc) - I'm just balancing the odds of what Netflix is going to want to make (something least offensive/most watchable to widest range of ages) vs. how 'dark' that /usually/ ends up being for 'family friendly' fare.

    But as a child who watched the animated "Watership Down" an unknown number of times before the age of 7 - I do get that kids can enjoy and be mature enough for dark things. I was all into the dark things (still am). (Ending of the 80s My Little Pony Movie anyone? =D) But I also get that isn't usually what Hollywood Types are thinking of/going for when they are making 'kid friendly' tv shows.

    Not saying it won't be good or even awesome. Just struck me as a...more difficult/complicated IP to do this with successfully - thus a more 'huh well that's an interesting idea to pursue' when it comes to tv writing. (We shall see if they pull it off with any success or not.)

    What's up with the hip hop music in that trailer? Expecting a Geralt rap harking back to the Zelda rap days lol.

    Proof is boring. Proof is tiresome. Proof is irrelevance. People would rather be handed an easy lie than search for a difficult truth, especially when it suits their own purpose.

    Music aside, it does make me excited for S2.

    New trailer looks pretty good. Hopefully they don’t do weird time jumps this time.
