1. A single season costs more than a successful Mars mission:

Each episode of the first season of Game of Thrones cost upwards of $5 million. In fact, the entire first season cost somewhere between $50 and $60 million. Fast forward to this year, the sixth season has a total cost of most than $100 million. To put it in perspective, a single episode of Game of Thrones costs thrice the amount of an episode of The Big Bang Theory. Even better, India’s entire Mars mission cost a quarter less than the budget of the latest season of GoT ($73 million).

2. Game of Thrones influences world economies:

When was the last time you heard that a TV Series was a major contributor to a country’s economy? Never, right? Well, that’s exactly what GoT did for Northern Ireland as it directly brought more than $100 million to the country’s economy.

3. It has been the most pirated TV Show for four years running:

From 2012 to 2015, GoT has been the most pirated TV Show on the whole of Internet, according to TorrentFreak. It is so popular that in 2015, it was pirated almost twice more than the runner-up, The Walking Dead. According to BitTorrent, 5.9 million downloads were recorded of the 2013 season finale. In the same year, Breaking Bad had only 4.2 million downloads while The Walking Dead was way behind at 3.6 million.
