They should have him be a bit more unshaven to shake that Elf look, because he really does look like a LotR Elf.

CGI mate, they'll whack some seamless stubble on that face in post-processing no problem!

I've got no problem with Cavill being a younger Geralt but that wig is just offensive. They couldn't have make it look cheaper if they tried and no matter how good the story and acting is - the wig is all that will be noticed.

First impressions are that it's going to be cheap crap.

To be fair - it's early test footage, not the finish product.

Although it doesn't look much better than a cheap sketch show

Netflix shows don't have a very large budget so don't go expecting much in that respect.

Some shows on Netflix don't have very big budgets. Some shows on Netflix have massive budgets.

Sense 8 was reported as $9million an episode. The Get Down and the Crown even more than that.

Exactly, in fact I think The Crown is actually the most expensive TV show ever produced.

I would imagine this would get a solid budget from Netflix as they will be looking to establish some new "tentpole" shows with House of Cards and Orange is the New Black both drawing to a close.

Would make sense to sell it as a Game of Thrones replacement.
