Yeah. I know. grin
I was commenting to me son and fellow GoT-aholic about how "realistic" the dragons looked. He gave me The Look, before sort of agreeing with me.
But they just LOOK right. From having to taxi down the runway before they take off, to the "vent" in their throats, etc. have no problem suspending disbelief watching them.

Now, it appears that Neil deGrasse Tyson agrees with me! I'm not used to that. grin
