House of the Dragon is Also Trying Really Hard

We got a full trailer for the upcoming Game of Thrones spin-off called House of Dragons. It’s a big, epic adventure trailer full of dragons and knights and all sorts of madness. And I think this trailer and this entire show is trying too hard.

Honestly, I consider House of the Dragon the same way I consider The Rings of Power: some TV studio is clinging to a popular franchise too hard and is hoping desperately they can somehow make a successful prequel spin-off show by throwing money at it. But neither trailer has provided much of a look at the actual story or what we’re supposed to care about. Why are they prequels? How is that going to be a good idea?

Can money make a show? Look. I am one of the few people in the world who liked and is content with the Game of Thrones finale. Come at me. But as much as we all enjoyed that show, do any of us really care about this prequel series? About the ancient history of the Targaryen family and their dragons?

I think both House of the Dragon and The Rings of Power are both going to equally and simultaneously crash and burn.
