Hey everyone - Game Of Thrones is back! Well, sort of. House of the Dragon is a prequel to good ol' Game of Thrones, focusing on House Targaryen at the height of their power and the civil war within their house that almost destroyed them and lead to the extinction of the Dragons.
Episode 1 feels like vintage Game of Thrones and knows it has a lot to make up for after the abysmal and disappointing final season of GOT. But it actually seems up to the task with increased production value and input from series creator (and expert author) George R.R. Martin. We're introduced to a lot of important players in this episode, but it seems to be setting the stage for some epic medieval fantasy political maneuvering to come.
