Now streaming: ‘House of the Dragon’ on HBO Max, ‘Mike’ on Hulu and more – The Seattle Times

Here’s what’s new on Video on Demand, Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hulu and other services.
Here there be dragons once more. “House of the Dragon: Season 1” (TV-MA), set 200 years before “Game of Thrones,” chronicles an earlier war for succession. Paddy Considine is the king who upends tradition by naming his daughter Rhaenyra (Milly Alcock) heir to the Iron Throne and Matt Smith is his younger brother, a brutal warrior and decadent royal who believes the throne should be his. Like the original series, it’s full of palace intrigue, bloody battles, sex and nudity, and of course dragons, but the initial episodes lean toward exposition and world-building. New episodes on Sundays. (HBO Max)
Trevante Rhodes plays Mike Tyson in “Mike” (TV-MA), a limited series drama that explores the thrilling career and tumultuous personal life of the boxing legend, whose victories in the ring were often overshadowed by his violence outside of it.
