House of the Dragon

Surprised there isn't a thread on this one yet.  I still cringe when I think about the final season of GoT, but had to check out the prequel last night.  I really liked it.  The actor who plays Daemon is just perfect...looks like he was born to play an evil Targaryen.

    Yeah I've really been enjoying it.  Pretty wild that they re-cast half the show after 5 episodes but it was a pretty smooth transition.  Alicent sure did evolve quite a bit in the time jump.

    Shit is getting real. Wonder if they will follow the GoT model with episode 9 being the holy shit episode of the season.

    This show loves huge time jumps.  And yeah, I'll go ahead and assume it won't be a peaceful transition of power.

    That was one of my complaints. One episode they just change the cast to be 30 years older. Seems choppy time-wise.
    Got through about 4 or 5 episodes then it got me wanting GOT, so I started rewatching that. Will finish up with this show though.

    Watching w/ closed captions has become a must for me, its a big help in following the plot.

    I def turn the volume way up for this show.  Did the same for GOT.  I think it's a combo of the accents and the fast moving dialog.

    I have not ready any of the books but from what I understand this season is like a setup for what actually takes place in the books.

    I’m finding it hard to keep interested in this show. I remember people saying not to get too attached to GOT characters because they end up dying, but I don’t really care for any of these characters. And the obsession with incest is pretty disturbing now.

    I do love Rhys Ifans though (and Otto is a complete bastard). I met him and his brother Llyr at a Supergrass show years ago and went out drinking with them afterwards. Really nice guys.
