With the House of the Dragon release date a less than a month from now, the Game of Thrones prequel show hosted a preview screening of the pilot episode for media and the House of the Dragon first reviews are looking pretty good. There were some doubts about the spinoff, partly due to the way Game of Thrones ended, but HBO and George R.R. Martin apparently have found a way to create a show – that according to some critics – is even better than Game of Thrones.

Steven Weintraub, editor-in-chief for the entertainment news company Collider said, “I did not like the last season of Game of Thrones. At all. But I’ll admit the series premiere of House of the Dragon is really well done and I’ll continue watching.”

Indiewire called it, “Bettter than GoT and Breaking Bad.” Brandon Katz of The Wrap wrote: “The House of the Dragon pilot very efficiently explains its context in relation to GoT, introduces its core characters, and lays out the central conflict of the series. It’s an easy-to-follow premiere with vibrant colors and detailed texture. Absolutely a worthy successor so far.”

House of the Dragon stars Paddy Considine, Emma D’Arcy, Matt Smith, Olivia Cooke, Steve Toussaint, Eve Best, Fabien Frankel, Sonoya Mizuno, and Rhys Ifans.

George R.R. Martin co-created the spinoff series and also serves as executive producer. Ryan Condal, Miguel Sapochnk, and Sara Hess serve as co-showrunners and writers. The 10-episode series focuses on the Targaryens at the height of their rule in Westeros. House of the Dragon, which takes place about 200 years before the events of Game of Thrones, promises to deliver epic battles, lots of dragons and plenty of blonde hair.

House of the Dragon release date is August 21, 2022 on HBO and streaming on HBO Max. You can read the House of the Dragon first reviews below.
