What "House of the Dragon" is missing
Examine the first season of HBO’s House of the Dragon, comparatively with the first few seasons of Game of Thrones. Something that is dearly missed is the sense of humor and witty dialogue. There is no Tyrion-adjacent character, not nearly enough dialogue and japes and sardonic moments, or Bronn-esk side characters. By no means did the humor lessen the impact, popularity, and fairly book-accurate depictions of the Game of Thrones TV series (not including the final seasons). Why is House of the Dragon choosing to be so grim? is it taking itself too seriously? will this effect its success? I’d love Fire & Blood readers to potentially lean in on this topic as well. It’s a very different style than the main SOIAF series, so does it warrant the TV adaption being so serious?
