Over three years after the disappointing series finale, “Game of Thrones” is back. HBO’s newest series “House of the Dragon” starring Rhys Ifans, Matt Smith, Milly Alcock, and Emma D’Arcy was looking to recapture everything that was great in the original “Game of Thrones” series and it’s safe to say that they did not disappoint.

Taking place about 200 years before the events of “Game of Thrones,” the “House of the Dragon” follows Princess Rhaenyra and the rest of the Targaryen family as they battle each other for the Iron Throne.

The series does a great job implementing things the “Game of Thrones” fandom has grown to love, including the politics, action, gore, interesting characters and plot taking place in the vast fantasy world Westeros.

The series is a breath of fresh air for fans who were disappointed with the final season of “Game of Thrones” and an IMDb audience score of 8.6/10 backs this claim. “House of the Dragon” is a must watch for any fan of “Game of Thrones” or HBO Max subscriber as the show will keep you at the end of your seat and leave you wanting more.

Final Rating: (9.1/10)
