House of the Dragon vs. Lord of the Rings: A Preseason Match-Up

Game of Thrones is back with the prequel, “House of the Dragon.” Every week, Post Show Recaps provides immediate reactions, deep dive analysis, and absurd antics surrounding the return of the biggest franchise on HBO.

“House of the Dragon” centers on the Targaryan dynasty roughly 200 years before the events of “Game of Thrones.” It’s based on portions of George R.R. Martin’s 2018 novel “Fire & Blood.” Expect the show to live up to its predecessor and its very own name — with fire, blood, and dragons aplenty.

Post Show Recaps presents coverage of ‘The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power,’ an Amazon Prime Video fantasy series based on the novel The Lord of the Rings and its appendices by J. R. R. Tolkien. The series is set thousands of years before Tolkien’s The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings in the Second Age of Middle-earth.

In this podcast, Mike Bloom (@AMikeBloomType), DM Filly (@DMFilly), and Taran Armstrong (@ArmstrongTaran) compare and contrast the upcoming series ‘House of the Dragon’ and ‘The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power,’ as well as give a state of the world of fantasy adaptations as a whole.
