Phillip Maciak The New Republic This story began as a footnote, and House of the Dragon has yet to prove itself as more than an annotation. Jun 27, 2024 Full Review Camilla Long Times (UK) I’m mostly watching it for Olivia Cooke as the poisonous Alicent, a proto-Cersei Lannister. Jun 24, 2024 Full Review Hugo Rifkind Times (UK) In the first series one bunch of these Milky Bar Kid dragonlords bickered with another bunch over who got to sit on the Iron Throne. Nothing much has changed. Jun 21, 2024 Full Review Alan French Sunshine State Cineplex Once again, House of the Dragon turned up more excellent imagery. Honestly, it's hard to stop raving about how much more visually complex this season has been than last season. It's an absolute joy to watch. Rated: 9/10 Jul 22, 2024 Full Review Lissete Lanuza Sáenz Fangirlish If House of the Dragon were a character, it would be Daemon Targaryen, and as much as some people love Daemon, as much as we love him, no one ever truly says those words as a straight-up compliment. Jul 1, 2024 Full Review Valentina Morillo El Español (Spain) I've watched 4 episodes and I can say that not only surpassed the first season, but has the potential to overshadow the original series. Watching each episode is an event these weeks, and in the Targaryen Civil War, the viewers are the winners. Jul 1, 2024 Full Review Read all reviews

Allister B Season 1 was great. Clever story arc and no fluff. Season 2 drops the ball and apart from a simplistic “war is bad” theme it lacks depth Rated 2 out of 5 stars 07/24/24 Full Review Chris S hmain part I found annoying of this season so far, is the Daemon seemed to be going crazy, and taking way too long to do it!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 07/24/24 Full Review Ty L Some serious hatred over one scene which is TOTALLY ON PAR with the book. In the book, it was heavily rumored that Rhaenyra was Bi and hooked up with Laena, another one of Daemons lovers. The rest of the episode was fantastic Rated 5 out of 5 stars 07/24/24 Full Review Farzad J Honestly i don’t know what is good in this story is bad acting terrible dialogue are herendous . Can’t stand it no idea what people love about this Rated 1 out of 5 stars 07/24/24 Full Review Himinglaeva E I enjoy some of the characters but their development in season 2 has slowed to snails pace. It’s like you have to wait 20 years now to reach an anticlimactic ending. You can start watching these at 30 and by the time it’s in its finally you’ve buried your grandparents and parents. Can they milk it any further? Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 07/24/24 Full Review Barney M Season 2 has been endless loops of Daemon tripping off his head with no progress. Princess Rhaenyra is not charismatic in this series and is constantly complaining. The supporting cast have no presence, see the war council for Princess Rhaenyra, are any of them memorable? Real dip in story telling from season 1 which I loved. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 07/24/24 Full Review Read all reviews
