The Rings Of Power vs. House of the Dragon: My Review

Not Much In The Way Of Spoilers (but perhaps some)

Two epic fantasy prequels face each other head to as HBO presents House of the Dragon (HOTD), a prequel to Game of Thrones, and Amazon features The Rings of Power (ROP), a prequel to The Lord of the Rings. I started HOTD first, but after a couple of episodes of ROP I binged it until I caught up. As of this writing, I await the first season finale for each.

The differences between ROP’s Galadriel (left) and HOTD’s Rhaenyra (right) sum up what makes ROP better.
