This Month’s Highlight

House of the Dragon

Is anybody else getting Game of Thrones war flashbacks? It’s weird to believe that we’re getting more GOT. It’s even weirder that the finale feels like a million years ago — to be fair, everything pre-COVID feels like that — but fans of Game of Thrones might be soothed to hear that George R.R. Martin plays a bigger role behind the scenes in HBO’s House of the Dragon. Based on Martin’s novel Fire & Blood, the series centers on the Targaryens (long before Daenerys’s tragic bid for the Iron Throne). (Streaming August 21.)
