Never Judge a Book By its Cover: After Initial Criticism and Setback, House of the Dragon Rotten Tomatoes Rating Rises To 85%

House of the Dragon Rotten Tomatoes Rating

Game of Thrones‘s spin-off series, House of the Dragon, will be airing tomorrow, and it’s been in the talks among fans and the public alike. The last season of Game of Thrones was highly anticipated but ended up disappointing fans of the fantasy drama series, who thought they were robbed of a spectacular finish to an amazing show.

Now combine that with the recent comments from House of the Dragon co-creator Sara Hess just days earlier, who revealed that she hadn’t seen the TV adaptation of A Song of Ice and Fire. This eventually instilled doubts among the fans and further contributed to House of the Dragon not being taken seriously by fans, and boy they were wrong.

House of the Dragon currently holds an 85% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, which was just 76% yesterday! One of the reviewers even called it a “slick follow up” to Game of Thrones, another said that we, as fans, are in “safe hands”.

These reviews look quite promising, and the 85% rating doesn’t lie either.

House of the Dragon Star Matt Smith Talks About Daemon Targaryen

Matt Smith‘s Morbius wasn’t that great of a success (which instead had memes made about the movie), but his role in House of the Dragon as Daemon Targaryen might just save some face for him.

The 39-year-old actor sat down with Den Of Geek, and touched upon his character, who is the heir presumptive to the Iron Throne –

“I think everything is about his brother, He’s deeply wounded, I think that’s where it all comes from. Otherwise, I think you’d get tired of him just being vain and pernicious, you know what I mean?”

“Don’t get me wrong, there is a touch of that in there, but I think everything is a result of his sort of attitude toward his brother on some level.”

Smith seems to know his character very well, and as the reviews show us, he’s definitely ruled as Daemon Targaryen.

House of the Dragon premieres tomorrow, August 21, on HBO Max.
