House of the Dragon creator has seen first episode and loved it. Hardly a surprise headline, but author George R.R. Martin has released his usual end of the year Not a Blog. This year fans will most likely take note of the fact there is zero mention at all of his progress on The Winds of Winter. Honestly, after the show went away from and ahead of his books, I feel like Martin lost the enthusiasm to finish off that story. I guess we will see if there’s any mention next year?
What Martin did have to say though is that he has seen a rough cut of Episode 1 of House of the Dragon and unsurprisingly he loved it.
I am anticipating HOUSE OF THE DRAGON pretty eagerly myself, for what it’s worth. Okay, I am hardly objective. And I know a lot of what you will be seeing. (I, um, wrote the book). Also … mum’s the word now, don’t tell anyone… I’ve seen a rough cut of the first episode. And loved it. It’s dark, it’s powerful, it’s visceral… just the way I like my epic fantasy.
Ryan and Miguel have done an amazing job, and the cast… just as with GAME OF THRONES, most viewers will only have heard of a few of the actors, but I think you are going to fall in love with a lot of them. (Only to have your heart broken later when… but no, that would be telling).
I think the Targaryens are in very good hands.
Anticipate away. I do not think you will be disappointed.

Listen, I loved Game of Thrones, S1 – S6 and even liked some of what came afterwards. I am the stereotypical target audience for House of the Dragon and I will most definitely be watching it. However, that ending to Thrones still to this day leaves a bitter tease in the mouth. As you might see if you read the related article above.
GRRM, House of the Dragon creator has seen first episode and loved it! I genuinely hope I am also signing it’s praises when we finally get to see it for ourselves sometimes in the next year. I’m loving all this fantasy content right now and whilst some are better than others, it’s a genre I’m glad is getting its time in the limelight. Sound off below as always.
