The show is supposed to do a 10ish year time jump at mid-season, so we will have two new actresses playing the Princess and Her Grace Queen Alicent

Oh no really? I don't like that.

ditto. I enjoy these people. What I don't know is if the timejump will continuously be interspersed with flashbacks/time jumps or not.

Did they announce who the actresses are going to be? I thought I saw earlier that they were playing their youngself and older, but that may have just been the first time jump

They did. Rhaenyra I’m not previously familiar with. The other was the female lead in ready player one (which I enjoyed) and sound of metal (also enjoyed, tho only one viewing). I doubt I would have recognized her from those though.

I was beginning to feel like this show wasn’t going anywhere and was hard to watch, not being fully invested in any of the characters really, then last night happened and it pulled me back in.

You could say that about Breaking Bad or parts of Game of Thrones or Better Call Saul.

So far this is basically a soap opera with (occasionally) dragons.  Half way in and now they are going to do a big time jump and add a bunch of characters?  While the first half ended with the death of a dude we didn't even get to learn his name.  You start to get the feeling this show has too much riding on these dragon battles.  they better be really awesome.

I mean they made the dudes name Joffrey. Unless they named him Jon snow, ned stark, or Tyrion Lannister… I’m not sure if there’s an easier name for former GoT’s watchers for them to have given dude

They can’t really plan a prequel that was 200+ years ago without time jumps.  This is 3-4 seasons at best before we get to the GoT we all know.

I don't see how that is my (the viewer's) problem.  Rings of Power is condensing 2k years for the sake of story.

They're different enough that I like them both, I'm just enjoying HoD a little more.  I could see RoP taking over at some point once things really start heating up, however

Each show has "won the week" a couple times imo.  I've got HoD at about 6.5/10 & RoP at about 7/10 so far.  I just think RoP has clearly set up a lot more exciting things to look forward to.  Neither show is better than The Witcher yet, but then again neither was the Witcher at this juncture.

Last comment for now, if there is one actor in either show that I think has absolutely slayed it, it has to be Paddy Considine's Viserys.  How that man takes a character with so many obvious weaknesses and still emanates such power and dominates every scene is a marvel.

It’s not a problem unless you make it a problem. I’m just saying the obvious, it’s hard to fit hundreds of what’s into a show that may only be 3-4 seasons at best without some time jumps.  If that bothers you then it’s a personal issue you can choose to hate it if you wish.  As for Dork of the Rings, I’ve never read a book or watched a single one of those so I won’t comment on it.

To be fair - RoP started out with a gigantic time jump right at the beginning of the show 😂

That was a prologue.  Time jumps mid season, much less every episode, is pretty whack.  Especially when the entire 5 episodes feel like they could have been covered by Littlefinger in 5 minutes with 3 dancing prostitutes in the background.
