There has been an unreal amount of hype surrounding “House of the Dragon,” and it’s not hard to see why. “GoT” was one of the greatest shows ever made.

Even though it struggled down the stretch and gave fans an incredibly disappointing finale, there’s no debate about whether or not it changed TV forever.

It 100% did and the first half of the series is among the best TV ever made. Don’t let a disappointing ending fool you from realizing the greatness of the series.

Now, fans are getting a prequel series that takes place a couple hundred years before the timeline of the original saga, and it’ll follow the Targaryens.

If that’s not enough to get your pulse rate up, you probably don’t recognize great TV when you see it. To say I’m juiced would be the understatement of the year.

Make sure to keep checking back for the latest updates on “House of the Dragon” as I have them. I can’t wait to take another ride with “GoT” fans!
