  1. At this point, someone in Hollywood should go all-in and make a blockbuster adaptation of Tuff Voyaging.
  2. Speaking of which, what was HBO's initial expectations from GoT? Several people involved in the show have said that it wasn't supposed to become as big as it got.
  3. I think GRRM decided to give some of those characteristics to Alicent somewhere down the line.
  4. I mean, many fantasy stories have been adapted to the screen just in the last few years, and none of them have come close to GoT in terms of popularity.
  5. I wonder what their reaction to the Sea Snake show will be, then. The prequel to the prequel.
  6. I can't help but wonder if the decision to have Rhaenyra and Alicent to be the same age and childhood friends was inspired by Conn Iggulden's Emperor book series. There, he does the exact same thing with Julius Caesar and Brutus, whereas in reality there was about 15 years between them. Probably not, but it's still a striking coincidence
  7. Plus, it becomes quite suspicious if the entire writing staff of one outlet prefers one show and the entire writing staff of another outlet prefers the other one.
  8. An outlet called The Ringer is ripping The Rings of Power. Something is very wrong with that sentence.
  9. I just saw the headline that GoT is outdoing HotD on the streaming charts, and thought that it was something recent, but it turns out that the numbers are from August.
  10. https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/tv/tv-news/house-of-the-dragon-streaming-rankings-aug-22-28-2022-1235225558/ Hm... interesting. Why are the August numbers only published now?
  11. Oh, come on! Daemon volunteered to take care of Runestone after the tragic passing of his wife, which is just the most heartwarming thing ever.
  12. I also think that they went too far with Viserys' poor health. I just can't buy him lasting another decade in the condition he is currently in. Heck, a lot of people thought that he died in this episode.
  13. Apparently, a scene where Laena claims/rides Vhagar was cut from episode 2.
  14. I'll never forgive GRRM if a lord Crispin of House Glover isn't mentioned in a future book. The man gave us Kermit and Elmo Tully, but won't take advantage of the biggest layup in history?
  15. I wonder what the Westeros equivalent of the Starr Report would say.
  16. Technically, she lied when she said that Daemon never touched her. At least, that would be my verdict if I was a prosecutor.
  17. From what I've seen, they loved the first couple of episodes, at least.
  18. I feel like there is a weird discrepancy in the fandom, in that HoTD is more well-received on the ASOIAF subreddit than on this forum.
  19. It doesn't really matter, the important thing is that it showed that it's possible to reach those heights even in a fractured media landscape. One could even argue that Squid Game had a bigger impact, since it was a truly global success and GoT is more of a Western phenomenon.
  20. I think it's theoretically possible. A case can be made for Squid Game or Stranger Things.
  21. The actors' performances definitely won many people over.
  22. I've seen many viewers who are confused as to how Laena went from looking much younger than Rhaenyra to looking much older than her in the span of just a few episodes.
  23. Matt Smith isn't traditionally handsome, but he makes up for it with tons and tons of charisma.
