Blood, very dirty political maneuvering, death, sex and dragons.

All that (along with many more issues) made the

Game of Thrones

series a worldwide hit

appears in

House of the Dragon


And from the beginning.

This production can be seen

on HBO Max from August 22

and it will give a lot to talk about.

Here we have without spoilers the highlights of

one of the great seriéfilas proposals of the year


Subscribe here to HBO Spain.

Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen (Milly Alcock) is the protagonist of the story.


To remember that we are facing the

Game of Thrones


nothing better than letting the minutes pass in the first chapter.

From the beginning, the mythical tune of the 8-season series already tells us that

the style, the form and the settings are going to be familiar to us


Specifically, we are at the time when

the Targaryen dynasty ruled almost unopposed thanks to the power of the dragons.

The protagonist is

Rhaenyra Targaryen

, a teenager who, 200 years before Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) rose as the 'mother of dragons', faced a fate that she resisted.

The daughter of King Viserys

(Paddy Considine)

suffers from the fact that she is a woman

and cannot become her father's successor.

Many want to remove King Viserys Targaryen (Paddy Considine) from power.


A replacement that leads us to see

betrayals, fights

and (household trademark)

bloody combats

in which two iconic characters with a lot of character emerge as

Otto Hightower (Rhys Ifans)

, the king's right-hand man, and

Prince Daemon Targayren (Matt Smith)

, the villain of the role.

It is curious that, to embody these guys, they have had

two actors as charismatic

as, in the case of Smith, the

protagonist of the

Doctor Who

series and who appeared in

The Crown


and, in Rhys Ifans, to a guy who stood out as

Hugh Grant's friend in

Notthing Hill

and who, little by little, has shown his ability to function in dramas like



blockbusters like the



Harry Potter

sagas. .

Matt Smith is Prince Daemon Targaryen, the villain of the show.

But, what the public really expects,

whether there is (or not) sex, political gossip and dragons

is the unknown that should be cleared up.

Yes, and as the story progresses, more.

George RR Martin

's novel

Fire and Blood

is here adapted with many of the factors that were already a trademark of

Game of Thrones



Nudity, bloody deaths

and situations in which women are despised by men make this series

an adult product

, exciting due to the unexpectedness of some situations and with a long journey.

10 chapters in which the weakness of King Viserys is evidenced

by his kindness

, the

strong character of a young Targayren

and the

evil of a Daemon prince

who does not hide his desire for power from the start of the plot.

Otto Hightower (Rhys Ifans) is the king's right hand man.

In the absence of knowing the verdict of the most staunch fans of George RR Martin's stories, it is appreciated that he himself has participated in this project in which, on the negative side,

less complexity in the plots

stands out , few outdoor scenes far from the Iron Throne and nearby rooms and too many political meetings led by the king with dialogues not as agile and biting as in

Game of thrones


And it is that

the shadow of Peter Dinklage

and that of his Machiavellian Tyrion Lannister

is very long
