August 2022 is without a doubt the month of great TV, especially with shows like Netflix’s The SandMan,  Apple TV’s See Season 3, and The final season of Better call Saul, all coming out within the same month. However, the show I’m sure everyone is looking forward to is House of the Dragon, the epic Game of Thrones prequel that chronicles events leading to the Targaryen civil war, known as The Dance of Dragons.
