    ...and I was half expecting to actually see a Dragon.

    A show about Targs called House of the Dragon and they dont show a dragon in the teaser.:down

    The iron throne looks a lot better. Closer to how its supposed to look.

    Idk why but they cant seem to get the white hair to look good on male actors. It was awkward looking for Viserys, Rhaegar, and now for Matt Smith's character. They need to try a different style or maybe a shorter cut for some male Targs. Or maybe some curls or waves, instead of just letting it hang loose and limp as a dead fish.

    Not surprised they didn't show any dragons yet, though I'd expected them to at least include a roar/burst of flame. The CGI won't be ready, and releasing it unfinished would only get them raked over the coals by the internet.

    Personally, I think Daemon's hair looks great, as it did for Lloyd's Viserys back in Season 1. Rhaegar was the only wig that looked really bad, IMO. I am disappointed though that it appears they're giving Considine a long wig for Viserys I. He's always been depicted with short hair in source work, and that would have been a good way to distinguish him.

    HBO Max was doing a virtual presentation for their launch in Europe. But even so, yeah, it is a bit strange for them to drop a first look when most of the American audience would be asleep.

    The show looks fine to me. The vibe that the trailer gave off was GOT season 1 with the budget of GOT seasons 7-8. I'm only assuming that we didn't see a dragon because it's the first teaser and the dragons in this are probably going to be much larger than Drogon, Rhaegal and Viserion were in GOT so they might be saving that reveal.

    Whenever they do decide to show the dragons I'm hoping they first show one that is Drogon's size and then show one that dwarfs it.

    Damn it! Im still so angry about the original series (yes, i know how dramatic that sounds) but this looks so so so good! HBO really has this magic touch, production values shame every other genre show out there. Except maybe foundation. But that one has terrible writing.

    Maybe show Rhaenyra or Daemon with their dragons - about Drogon's size, maybe a little bigger - and then drop in Vhagar for the moneyshot. Odds are we're going to see Aemond claim her this season, so they should have a quality reveal shot on hand for that.

    One thing that stands out to me in that teaser is the pageantry and heraldry seems much more vibrant and eye-catching. D&D too often shied away from eccentric designs and anything that they thought was too "fantastical" or silly.

    But don't you want to see all the KWEEN and fire posts on social media?

    I like the look of it. Here’s hoping the writing is good too.

    I cannot wait for this. I love the cast, especially Matt Smith and Sonoya Mizuno :)

    I was expecting an April/May release, like usually for GoT seasons…but it looks more like a late 2022 release. Otherwise we already would‘ve had a real trailer now

    Huge failure by not casting Hunter Schafer or getting a cameo for Phoebe Bridgers.
