Five Facts about: Game of Thrones

08. 01. 2018

‘Sex, plots and loads of bloody murders.’

Three words which define one of the most popular and brilliant TV shows, created by HBO. We all know who we are talking about. Yep, the famous Game of Thrones!

It’s hard to write just 5 facts about GoT as the show is on its 8th season!  But let’s see one of the 5 interesting facts about GoT from my point of view:

  1. GoT is one of most expensive shows on TV. It costs three times more to make an episode of GoT then it does to make an episode of The Big Bang Theory. Not necessarily the ones that are watching GoT will watch TBBT but they both are one of the most popular shows today. However, it still costs $1 million less than it did to make an episode of the final season of Friends – one of the most if not the most popular show ever.

  1. Emilia Clarke’s Daenerys has become so popular that now we have 146 baby girls named Khaleesi in 2013. A lot of GoT fans and even non-fans (if there are any) have name their children different names from the shows big roles and we love it! Thank you GoT for all the wonderfully unique names you gave us, the world is a much prettier place for it now!

  1. Two languages, Dothraki and Valyrian, were created only for the tv show and only from a few words. WOW! Now that’s impressive! I admire these people and the sound of it it’s not like you can recognize some words, they are just so unique.
  1. It’s also the most pirated show on television. BitTorrent gives us some facts and in the 2013 season finale of GoT has been downloaded 5.9 million times via their site. Yes, we all would like to see the new season as soon as possible but waiting for their official release and to get all that ‘winter is coming’ all over the tv is just the thrill you need to get you in that state of mind, in the GoT state of mind! So, wait for it, do not download it!

  1. Dire wolves are real, but they’ve just been dead for millennia. Thank goodness! This ancient breed is said to have been 25% larger than today’s grey wolf. OMG! To recreate the beasts, the show uses Northern Inuit dogs that are digitally enlarged by visual effects specialists. Wouldn’t like to run into one of them and thankfully I won’t!

But here’s a secret: A Game of Thrones can be broken down into three stories and it is based on the three different views of the whole kingdom. Now, I know you don’t need me to tell you what it is all about in GoT but I will tell you that I have been where the King’s Landing is, and I have walk a thousand times through those ways as I was born and bred in the Dubrovnik where main GoT is filmed. Its so amazing to see all that and to see the remarkable UNESCO protected city become part one of the biggest shows ever, Game of Thrones!

Only those who know to play The Game of Thrones survives. There is no middle ground.

You win, or you die.
