House of the Dragon is the latest show from the Game of Thrones franchise. Game of Thrones has been one of the most successful TV shows ever produced, which has generated over 44 million views worldwide and has been a fan’s favorite ever since it aired. After the show ended in 2019. The final season of the series did not perform as expected and disappointed many of its fans; some even hated the last season. Author George RR Martin said he couldn’t believe people could love something so much in one moment and hate it completely in another.

It’s clear from George’s statement that Game of Thrones is like his child and would certainly disappoint the parent if his child is hated.
