Critics approve HOTD
After Game of Thrones’ lacklustre conclusion, many fans of the original show had their reservations about the new prequel. However, it now appears that HBO and George R. R. Martin have overcome that setback and produced a series that is even better than its forerunner.
Collider‘s editor-in-chief Steven Weintraub said “I did not like the last season of Game of Thrones. At all. But I’ll admit the series premiere of House of the Dragon is really well done and I’ll continue watching.”
Another Collider critic, Christina Radish penned, “Sometimes you’ve just gotta spend the night hanging out with a dragon!”
She added, “For those curious about the series, without spoilers, I can say that the thing I really dig is the fact that it still feels epic in scale and scope while telling a personal and intimate story about one family, showcasing both their love and dysfunction.”
Another Tweep says, the Wrap‘s Brandon Katz wrote, “The House of the Dragon pilot very efficiently explains its context in relation to GoT, introduces its core characters, and lays out the central conflict of the series. It’s an easy-to-follow premiere with vibrant colors and detailed texture. Absolutely a worthy successor so far.”
One critic shared, “I didn’t know how much I missed the Game of Thrones theme song until I heard it tonight at the HOTD premiere! That first episode is fantastic! Can’t wait to see what’s next. Fingers crossed it’s no repeat of the final season of GoT.”
Where can I watch House of the Dragon?
The series will be streaming from August 21 on HBO Max.
