Game of Thrones fans acknowledge that the humor in House of the Dragon is different from the original series, and they’re fine with it.
In the r/HoueOfTheDragon subreddit, one user posted a still photo of the death stare Sandor ‘The Hound’ Clegane (Rory McCann) shot at Tormund Giantsbane (Kristofer Hivju) in Season 7, along with the caption, “Only thing missing in HOTD is some laughs. House of the Dragon is a good show, but I feel like it lacks a bit of humor. I find Game of Thrones to be funnier. (This is just my opinion.)”
