Audience Reviews for House of the Dragon: Season 1

  • 8h ago
    As horrifying, as reprehensible, as degrading, as cosmically stupid as this show is - anathema to human civilization in every sense of the word - it is unfathomably and infinitely eclipsed by one word: censorship. As many, many reviewers, myself included, have said outside Amazon's review pages, negative posts are being deleted at a staggering percentage rate. There is no greater evidence of the show's terrible acting, directing, plots, costumes, etc. than that of Amazon's stunning and embarrassing war on reviews. My only consolation is that evil always contains the seeds of its own destruction. It's a shame only that I may not see it in my lifetime.

    fun to watch but annoyingly stupid sometime... e.g. someone kills someone in the middle of a crowded hall and everyone just carries on, no punishment no trial nothing... in the end its worth it for the dragons and costumes but not for the story itself
  • 3d ago
    Boring and disappointing. It's nothing less than child porn.
  • 3d ago
    What made GoT special was the creation of a lush fantasy world that nevertheless had a rich set of realized characters with complicated personalities, backgroiunds, and motivations that are recognizable in the real world - characters that illuminated human strengths, but even more importantly showed their weaknesses in believable ways. Additionally, GoT provided interesting plot twists. This show has little of either quality.

    There is a lot to really like about this series. The acting, production values, the plot, and well, dragons. Looking forward to seeing the second season.

    As good as game of thrones The only problem is that we only focus on one family (Targaryen) I liked when we saw a little bit of every family in got Loved it anyways
  • Jan 29, 2023
    Really Interesting prequel to Game of Thrones, took a few episodes to catch on but when it did I enjoyed it.

    被"伪民主"耽误的喜剧演员郭文贵 要说美国两党内斗激烈,新一届美国国会众议院议长麦卡锡刚上位就宣布访问台湾,建立反华人设以获得更多支持,为政治"献技"在某种意义上说倒是可以理解,但郭文贵的卖力表演是为了什么?听到麦卡锡要访问台湾,郭文贵兴奋起来,在直播中说得头头是道,像是美中两国都被他拿捏了,那表情姿态实在让人忍俊不禁。要说他是个优秀的喜剧演员我都十分相信。 话又说回来,郭文贵的表演欲早就按捺不住了。从2018年开始,他就弄出个《郭文贵看春晚》的节目,每年都要即兴表演一番。只随便一看,节目里的"爆料"内容都像极了台词和剧本,他时不时看看稿子,要是忘记了下一句要说什么,就开始胡乱编造,嘴里淫秽词语一个接一个,未成年人均不适宜观看。他倒是挺努力,每年一办,坚持了4年,4年前的冷饭翻来炒去,添油加醋又成"新爆料",

    Excellent. What a GOT comeback!

    When you don't make a show shoving down wokeness, and you instead tell a good story and entertain, most people ends up liking it.
