You watching?

What do you think of it?

Have a fave character?

Does Matt suit his look?

Have you aligned yourself with a House?

I'm watching and loving it, it's great!

I don't yet have a fave, but I do like Princess Rhaenyra.

I think he looks good as Daemon. I don't know much about the history of GoT/HotD, so I don't know if he's doing the Prince justice.

And my House is Velaryon. Lord Corlys is handsome af, and I was drawn to the House because one of the symbols of my city is the hippocampus. So I guess I'm biased. >_>

My buddy convinced me into watching HotD, even while watching Got I had very little interest in the Targaryens so that's how I started out while watching the spin off.


So far, I'm really enjoying it. It fills the void that Season 8 left behind. I feel like they are more likable in this series, in Game of Thrones we only ever really saw the bad parts of the House (ex: Mad King, Viserys and eventually Dany) I love the sets, and the costumes with the exception of the hair. I find the story is captivating, even though the episodes are around an hour each I'm still clinging on for more.Ā 


I don't really have a favorite character yet, it's hard to settle on just one.Ā 


All I see when Daemon is on screen is the 11th Doctor in a Legolas wig. (I feel like some of the wigs are wonky on everyone though, I'm sure they'll figure it out for season 2) I too am unsure if he's doing his role justice, but I'm here for his chaotic energy and am currently reading Fire & Blood as a side gig so I can learn more in terms of the History and Lore of Westeros.

House Alignment: Probably Baratheon because they always kill me with their one liners. They've always been mouthy and it's entertaining for me. XDĀ

Now that I'm finally caught up (I just couldn't find the time to watch the last two episodes lately!), I can read and reply to this thread. xD

I have some mixed feelings on it so far. It feels like it's moving SO fast. We've covered years in a matter of three episodes. But, to be fair, it doesn't feel bad. I just wish I was seeing more of the character development along the way!

As Shadow said, I would die for Rhaenyra.Ā I really enjoy her as a character so far and am excited to see how her story pans out. I know absolutely nothing lore wise from this period so I have no idea how her story goes. The scene of her returning to the camp during the hunt for Aegon's nameday with the pig blood all over her was such a mood. She is definitely my favorite right now.

Daemon is an neat character as well. I'm hoping his arc isn't as predictable as it seems. I don't really know him outside of this role so I guess I'm lucky in that! He does look a little out of place sometimes, but I do think he suits the character well.

It is so hard to choose a single house! But since Rhaenyra is Targaryen, I might have to go with that one. HOWEVER, Velaryon is really really close behind. Sea Snake is a sick nickname for Corlys, Castle Driftmark sounds neat, and I'm a sucker for anything with strong sea ties. xD
