The Lord of the Rings vs House of the Dragon: the ultimate duel of the series? (ft. Adam Bros.)
The two big series of the moment, House of the Dragon and The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power, have declared war. Who will emerge victorious? Video decryption.
Beyond adapting two of the most installed heroic fantasy universes in pop culture, House of the Dragon and The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power, have higher stakes. On the one hand, HBO must redeem itself from fans disappointed by the last seasons of Game of Thrones, by ensuring the profitability of the franchise. On the other, Amazon Prime has unleashed the heavy artillery with the most expensive series in history, based on a universe with possessive fans.
By deciding to release at the same time, the two series have necessarily entered into a competition that leads to an inevitable comparison. But while streaming has been selling us changes in the consumption habits of viewers for years, wouldn't we be facing the return of a duel of audiences typical of traditional television?
To answer this thorny question, and to wonder about the reception of the two series, Antoine needed help, and invoked Adam Bros, the Youtuber to rule them all.
