How to Become a Tyrant Netflix Review – a must-watch series produced by Netflix features the voice of Tyrion Lannister – Peter Dinklage. The interesting take on history in a modern narrative way describes the characteristics of tyrants. Season one features Adolf Hitler, Saddam Hussein, Idi Amin, Joseph Stalin, Muammar Gaddafi, and Kim Dynasty in North Korea.
The narration was simple and easy to understand. The outline of the “playbook” is set in a way where it becomes interesting and comprehendible. This is especially to millennials and Gen Zs. The series was met with likes and high reviews not so much about the content but its presentation. It captured a laid-back talk regarding history. It really would seem like Peter is just chilling and chatting with you.
The Hand of the Queen
The interesting choice to have Tyrion Lannister himself talk to you about politics is a hit. For huge GOT fans, they would recognize the voice of Peter Dinklage as the genius political throne player Tyrion. His character was known to outwit his fellow contenders in a deadly game of thrones. He hates tyrants who happen to be his dad, Tywin Lannister, and his sister, Cersei Lannister. Two of the most feared tyrants of Westeros. His fame added to the allure of this interesting series.
Admittingly there are a few things that the documentary had missed out on or might have intended not to say. This is common among documentaries these days and they tend to go with a certain narrative. You will hear the words “narcissistic” or “megalomaniacal” oftentimes on the episodes. This mostly undermines the philosophy of the tyrants as to why they did such a thing. Could it be possible that at the beginning they had good intentions? Most of them if you would see wanted to free their people from invaders, colonies, or bad governments. They might have overdone it a few years later but we must not undermine and dismiss their cause to narcissism or some god-complex issues.
