#8 Serious question- Is House of Dragons any good? I want to watch it, but I'm afraid there'll be too much forced diversity and woke propaganda. In my opinion, it distracts from the story and ruins the whole show. I don't have a problem with diversity in general, but movies and TV tend to way overdo it these days.
