If the show is good and manages to do the source material justice, great. If not then grab your pitchforks.
It's not hopping on a train if they consistently derail it and ruin the show.

You also contradict yourself. "this got this detail wrong" then go on to say "if they manage to get the source material justice great"

NOT getting this easy tiny detail ISN'T giving the source material justice.

This is also not the first thing they screwed up either. Every time news comes out they release it's just another thing that ruins the show.

Everyone was excited for the show. It was the easiest thing in the world to do. Literally every gamer was going to watch it. ALL they had to do was make a simple story and nail Geralt's actor. That's it. They managed to ruin the latter and then if they can't even get the details of a simple medallion right it doesn't inspire confidence into the story.

.

I argue that focusing on small details as a measure of the success of an adaptation is what would seperate a brilliant piece of work from an acceptable one. To focus on such small details before the story or character building has been demonstrated is premature.

It is not a contradiction but a matter of where the line of what is acceptable and what is not is drawn, which is subjective. A piece of work doesn’t need to be completely faithful to all the details of its source material in order to be good.

That is all true however as I already said it's just one thing after another with this. Everytime they release information it's always something. He's not even carrying two swords. I mean like c'mon that's an iconic sign of a Witcher.

I could be wrong here, but I was told that in the books that the steel sword is on Geralt's back and that the silver sword typically stays on Roach.

Most monsters can be handled with Steel in the series, so why carry the silver one at all times? The games changed that by making steel for people and silver for all monsters. For gameplay reasons it also makes sense to carry both at all times.

The books imply both are true because they aren't consistent. He also faces less monsters in the books which is why he usually has it on roach. But...

It's also difficult to tell. Half of the books feature Geralt without any gear. Just a basic crappy sword because he lost it all. But before that he did indeed carry two swords. There are multiple instances of both having two and not having two. It seems to me it's whatever the plot desires.

Though in Season of Storms in the beginning of the book he is carrying two swords and some Guardsman notice him and instantly recognize a person with 2 swords as a Witcher.

But as I said it's not consistent.

Fair enough. Thanks for the clarification.

Sure thing
I recommend reading all the books if you like to read and have time. I enjoyed every single one.

I wonder if the fact that we haven't seen a second sword yet or the medallion being different are mistakes/poor decisions or if they are carefully planned well thought out ones?

I guess we won't know until it comes out :P
