I feel sorry for you, the first 4 seasons were masterpieces. On par with Breaking Bad.

Fabien Frankel Cast in a Key Role in HBO's Game of Thrones Prequel Series HOUSE OF THE DRAGON
Here's another actor joining HBO's Game of Thrones prequel series. Fabien Frankel has been cast in a key role in the upcoming House of the Dragon. The news was first revealed by saga author George R.R. Martin on his blog.
The British actor recently appeared with Thrones star Emilia Clarke in the romantic comedy Last Christmas.
He will play Ser Criston Cole, a member of King Viserys I Targaryen's Kingsguard, a knight whose bold actions helped pave the way to civil war.
"He is the common-born son of the steward to the Lord of Blackhaven," Martin wrote. "He has no claim to lands or titles, all he has is his honor and his skill with sword and lance. He is a challenger, a champion, cheered by the commons, beloved of the ladies. He is a lover (or is he?), a seducer (or is he?), a betrayer (or is he?), a breaker of hearts and a maker of kings … Welcome to Westeros, Fabien. And do keep that sword sharp."
House of the Dragon tells the story of the Targaryen family in Westeros and is set 300 years before the events in Game of Thrones. The drama is from is from co-showrunners Ryan Condal (Colony) and Miguel Sapochnik (Game of Thrones) and is expected to start production this month in the U.K. for its planned 2022 debut.
The series previously announced stars Olivia Cooke, Emma D'Arcy, Paddy Considine and Matt Smith.
D&D fucked up the franchise for me.
I'd still watch the prequel if the reviews are good, but knowing that the main storyline ended in a hot pile of bloody diarrhea takes most of the excitement out of it.
nothing good will come of this.
time to move on.

First HOUSE OF THE DRAGON Set Photos and Video Gives Us Our First Look at Matt Smith and Emma D'Arcy as Daemon and Rhaena Tregaryen
I want Season 8 GRRM cut.
I don't even need GRRM to be involved
I just want a Season 8 that is not absolute crap
Matt Smith has a face like someone's evil clone that has been taken out of the tank before completely forming.
He's great actor though
Olivia Cooke is such a cutie
It’s really hard for me to give a crap about this. The last season of GOT so thoroughly destroyed my enjoyment of the series, that I don’t think it’s possible for me to get back into it.
I hated the last season back then, & yesterday I watched a few clips & hated it all even more.
I'm going to watch all the new series regardless. & I'll more than likely hate them all too.
I just have that undying hunger for any bit of new information regarding the history of that world.
GOT was the kind of series that I planned on going back and watching in it’s entirely.
Season 8 was so bad that it effectively butchered the earlier seasons, which were masterpieces in their own right. That takes some doing. I can’t bring myself to watch any of it based purely on how irrelevant the final season made most of the content.
Matt Smith kinda looks like Gordon Ramsay? not sure I like that casting.
The good news for a Targaryen civil war / dance of dragons series is, Martin already wrote most of the material for this so the plot is set already.
The bad news is, he didn't write the dialog. So it will sink or swim based on the scriptwriters they use.
Matt Smith will do great in this role. Not worried about the acting here.
Martin only having written most of the material is bad news to me.
It’s been said before but I’ll say it too: season 8 has made it impossible for me to give two shits about this.
It's actually impressive how this series went from being such a pop culture phenomenon to complete irrelevance after Season 8. Even with a half assed ending they could have milked this franchise for years, but Season 8 was such a colossal failure that they had to cancel one prequel based on the White Walkers. I'd like to see this succeed and have a quality comparable to the first Four Seasons of Game of Thrones, but I'm keeping my expectations low.
I'll watch it gladly. The last season was weak but that didn't kill the series. It's still one of the best of all time. I rather watch that than other copycat fantasies like Shadow and Bone.
