The number 1 way I know a show is good is when I’m sad that I watched it too fast, because now it’s done and I have to wait around wondering and hoping if/when it’s going to get a second season. Which is exactly how I feel with Netflix’s show, DOTA Dragon’s Blood. First things first I knew that this was somehow based off the computer game, but since I don’t actually know anything about the plot or even if its an MMO or something else and I was very curious on what it be like. But that didn’t stop me from absolutely loving this show, it’s got some of my favorite things elves, magic, and best of all… DRAGONS!!! Anyone who knows me knows that I love dragons, but just because the it has dragons doesn’t mean I’ll immediately love (it doesn’t hurt though). So, when I first watched the trailer for this show I was skeptical because it at first looked the main character had only vague connection to dragons or at most “summoned” a dragon to fight. And I’m not a huge fan of summoning in this genre, I prefer when the characters actually transform into the creature instead of summoning it because it doesn’t look like they’re passing off the work to something else. So the fact that there wasn’t any summoning in the show immediately squashed any of my worries and allowed me to enjoy every aspect of the show.
Second and literally the best part of this show was the DRAGONS!!!! Like I said I love dragons and this show had so many different types of dragons and they all looked special. I’m very picky when it comes to dragons but this show gave me all different types of dragons that covered all my bases for what I enjoy in dragons. Thats one of the biggest reason I want another season is so that they can show me even more dragons!
I also can’t wait to learn even more about all the cliffhangers they left us with and even more I can’t wait to see what else happens with the characters. Especially the budding relationship between Davion and Mirana, which I can’t wait for it to move to the next level*wink wink*. But really I’m super excited to see where else this show goes.
So all in all I’d give this show a 9 out of 10!
