Why House of the Dragon Is The TV Show of the Year

House of the dragon
The first episode of the much-anticipated Game of Thrones Prequel House of the Dragon premiered on Sunday night and Monday morning for those in other time zones exclusively on HBO.

The pilot episode, The Heirs of the Dragon was excitedly received by fans, me included. I was glued to the screen for the entirety of the episode and the 1 hour and 2 minutes seemed like twenty minutes. The episode did a wonderful job immersing the viewers back into the universe of Westeros after the controversial ending of the season finale of Game of Thrones, which left fans in shock.

The show was well-acted and had the usual depth and intricate plot as its predecessor. It started on a high note, driving the storyline into a complete showcase of House Targaryen at the zenith of their power. And of course, with the full glory of their majestic dragons ruling the skies.

What I loved about the episode was the display of political conflict and the struggle for power among family members and houses in the kingdom. The dialogue in the show is well-planned and poetic, with the characters throwing quotes and wise sayings in their speeches.

The show has clearly taken back its predecessor’s glory, and for me, I equate it to giving a second chance to your toxic ex who left you shocked and confused for a whole three years, and now has come back with an apology and a handful of gifts.

I have gladly accepted that apology and can’t wait to see what the future holds for House of the Dragon. The next nine weekends will surely be entertaining for the fans and the world of television shows.
