Game of Thrones is part of those television shows that have left a serious mark upon the entire world, and with a popularity that keeps on growing, our favourite fantasy show sometimes has to battle with other popular shows as well. One such greatly famous and loved show is Breaking Bad, which has often tied in competition with Game of Thrones, the recent incident being the near perfect rating on IMDb for both the shows.
After Game of Thrones season 6 episode 9, Battle of The Bastards aired, post a phenomenal battle sequence on the episode, Game of Thrones scored an amazing rating on IMDb, it was almost as close to the rating of 10/10 that a Breaking Bad episode, Ozymandias received. With this sweet rivalry between Game of Thrones and Breaking Bad fans, you’d wonder whether the show runners and directors also share it in common.
And during one of the interviews at the Emmys, Game of Thrones showrunners David Benioff and D.B Weiss revealed that they enjoy the secret rivalry they share with the director of Ozymandias, Rian Johnson. Benioff and Weiss revealed how they spoke to director Miguel Sapochnik, who directed Battle of The Bastards, about wanting to beat Johnson in the race of scores on IMDb.
“Well, can we tell you guys a secret?” Benioff began. “After that episode aired, we were talking to Miguel Sapochnik every hour, and all we kept doing ― we didn’t look at the ratings, we didn’t look at any of that stuff ― we were checking the IMDb episode rating. ‘Cause our friend Rian Johnson directed the ‘Ozymandias’ episode of ‘Breaking Bad,’ which was the 10.0, and we’re like, ‘We gotta get freakin’ Rian!’”
We hope fans also keep this competition going until after Game of Thrones ends!
