From Game of Thrones to House of Dragons
Have you watched the Tv series Game of Thrones? Are you a fan of the series or the books? I wasn't a fan of the book because I and my lazy eyes and brain can't afford to absorb all the story but I did watch the series. Last week its prequel House of dragons aired its last episode.
I initially drafted this months ago, around August if I am not mistaken. I was supposed to make a blog about re-watching GOT (Game of Thrones) before the prequel House of Dragons (HOD) airs. Instead, I'll be sharing my thoughts and little insights about the said series.
disclaimer: This article will not contain spoilers if you plan to watch the series. I didn't read the book so I may say anything not correct when it comes to the story and might offend fans. Hihi
Alright! Let's begin.
The first season was aired in 2011 and ran for 8 seasons until 2019.
The story focused on the Song of Ice and Fire
Lots of characters to mention and a lot of characters died.
Incest is also shown in the series for some reason.
Nudes, nudes, nudes, and lots of nudes.
Well, most of the GOT fans got frustrated or most likely disappointed with how it ended. One of my sisters bought the books and read most of them. She hasn't read the last book yet because she doesn't have a copy yet. Well, she said the ending of GOT looked like it was rushed as they were already preparing for the next story/series.
Non-novel fans mainly got hooked by its nudity in its first few episodes or on the first season. That's what I noticed and I knew some people who admitted it hahaha! regardless, they continued watching and waited for the next episodes and seasons until they got hooked up to the story.
I was always fascinated with this timeline, aside from the fancy gowns, kings, and queens, I like that there wasn't any technology at that time.
Liberated and Violence
We must admit that the world was once liberated and violent that's why generation by generation, people changed in different ways. But we don't have to forget that people were once like this and we should change for good.
I remember that we used to watch the latest episodes of GOT in our office and waited every March or April for the next season of the following year.
I planned to watch re-watch GOT before I watch HOD but 8 seasons were a bit longer and Lil B can't watch with me hahaha!
Here's the trailer so you can watch it and might get your interest too.
As mentioned, this was the prequel to Game of Thrones (songs of ice and fire) and this is based on George RR Martin's book, Fire and Blood. Again, I didn't read the book because I am a lazy person who reads books.
Anyway, this is mainly about what happened centuries before what happened on Game of Thrones. The history of why Targaryens and dragons became extinct and how they lost the throne to the King's landing.
The first episode was aired around August. Since we don't have a cable network, I wanted to download each episode but I could be a day late as they usually upload torrent files a day after. Good thing that when I checked my Gomo app, the offer of a monthly subscription is up! I didn't think twice to convert some of my data allocations for a month worth of subscription. It was 12GB by the way.
We, I mean my husband and my sisters, find HOD well written than GOT. If you noticed in GOT, you can spot characters that you will like or hate just by their first appearance on the show. Here in HOD, you'll find it hard who to like or hate. Why? Because they'll give you enough reason or give you an understanding of why each character does such a thing.
Oh, one more thing that I like about this series is the cast/actors that portrayed each character did a very great job! Production was great too. In HboGO, they also released behind-the-scenes footage per episode. I was even more amazed after I watched it.
Last week, HOD aired its 10th episode and I wasn't expecting that it will be the last episode of its first season. The ending left us hanging and gives us the urge to wait for the next season.
I can't wait to know more about what happened to the family who used to reign and what happened to the dragons. RAWR!
