Game of Thrones has come to an eight-year epic journey. Now it’s time to an end. Three years ago, HBO president KC Blayez said, “If possible, I would have made at least 10 seasons.” But that is not possible. So the eighth season will be the ending of the biggest cultural phenomenon. Five more exciting weeks. Then it will be gone.
But is this really end? What we never expected from a TV content, Game Of Thrones showed that to us. GOT is now the pioneer of the unexpected TV series. The pioneer will be absent, but its success and the path it showed to the TV industry will remain forever.
You have to be agreed that the thread game of Thrones has given to our TV industry that no other TV series can’t.
On the basis of the award game of thrones is ahead than any other show. No other dramatic series won as many Grammies as the GOT won. It owns Amy award 47 times and nominated for 132 times and also awarded the best drama award for 3 times.
On the basis of popularity Game of thrones left other TV shows thousand times behind. It also left back HBO’s most successful TV series the supernova and sex and the city. GOT is also the most viewed drama in the last ten years. If we consider the DIGITAL viewer, in the United States, the number of viewers per episode of the seventh season of the Game of Thrones was 32.8 million.
Game of Thrones is the biggest pioneer in making big budget TV shows. Nowadays, budget for many TV shows starts from 3 million to even 10 million or more, and it is mainly due to the game of Thrones.
In the first season, when the game of Thrones did not get popular as of now, they took a great decision. They killed the ‘Face of the show’ Shan Binq, before the end of the first season. Through this, they proved that the balance of the story is the most important thing to them.
They will not compromise with the story to keep the audience. In the same way, they did not compromise in the presentation of sex or violence on screen. They did not keep any defect in the technical aspect of the dragon or the battle scenes.
There was a time when there was no similarity between the TV show and the film’s story in terms of presenting TV and the big screen. Movie filming has an immense budget and unlimited freedom. So they will be able to show what they need for the story.
But the TV program must always be limited to a certain rhyme, that was the unwritten rule. Game of Thrones has blown the rule in a hurry. In these days of TV shows, anything which is being shown for the story is the huge contribution of Game of Thrones.
HBO has just taken itself to an enviable position through the game of thrones. Everyone like Netflix, Amazon and Apple are now looking for a game of Throne, which will end all their thoughts.
But they do not understand that Series like Game of Thrones come only once in the century. It is not possible to blindly imitate it. So we are not seeing any competitor near the Game of Thrones so far.
Even when HBO cannot reduce dependence on Game of Thrones forget about others. Before the start of the last season of Game of Thrones, they have decided that they will move forward in the direction of George R. Martin’s book. Throne’s prequel pilot episode will be shot in June.
When the Game of Thrones started its journey, their budget was $ 5 million. But for the last season, they have spent 15 million dollars per episode. Now people are spending much money for filming a TV show, considering the budget of GOT.
For example, Apple’s, they have allocated $240 million for a Morning TV show starring Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Ainster. While there was no script of the program while making this payment agreement!
Yes, in the same way, the TV industry has changed by the game of Thrones. Here’s the worth of Game of Thrones. They diverged the gap between the TV series and the film. So the audience is not as much excited for Avengers: Endgame, as than the last of the thriller Game of Thrones.
Can anyone ever thought a TV drama series will defect the big screen?
