The opinions are vastly different from each other.

If you're still on the fence about whether or not to watch "House of the Dragon," you should read the reviews of critics who have already binged the first episode. We have gathered a few comments here, but since they are all so unique, don't hold it against us if they only perplex you further.

"House of the Dragon" looks fantastic and dynamic, especially against the backdrop of the disastrous finale of "Thrones".

There are bloody massacres, and deaths, and the king's council filled with selfish jerks, and orgies in brothels. It's just like in the heyday of the original series.” said Lucy Mengen, per the Guardian.

“The series justified all the hopes placed on it, and the creators did it in a very aggressive manner: with sex, violence and political games. No one was safe in Game of Thrones, and that shock effect cannot be repeated today, the audience has become too hardened. But the spin-off repeated all the cruelty, so in the film blood flows in streams, and bones crack.” said Heide Rampetzreiter, according to Die Presse.
