Now, as we countdown to Season 8 of Game of Thrones, let’s look on the episodes we had so far.

Note: the list of episodes is updated but the statistics will be updated at the end of the season.

  • Game of Thrones first episode was aired on: April 17th 2011
    It’s almost hard to believe it but Game of Thrones was aired for close to a decade. The eight and last season is going to be aired 9 years after we first got to know the intrigue filled world of Westeros.

First episode

  • Number of episodes so far: 67
    When Game of Thrones season 8 was announced it was known it will have 6 episodes. While this is much less then we used to get with the first 6 seasons that had 10 episodes each, season 7 already had only 7 episodes so it was clear that the end was close :-(. Therefore, the show will have a total number of 73 episodes.
  • Total average rating: 9.5
    Amazing! There is probably no other word to describe this phenomenon. Based on IMDB information, this show was rated over 1.3 million times (true to end of 2018). It has a weighted average of 9.5 and it is currently one of the top three highest rated shows (all three have an average of 9.5). Game of Thrones has an arithmetic average of 9.3 and median of  10! Wow!
  • The season with the highest average rating: Season 4
    Surprisingly, the season that got the highest average rating (average of all the rating for that season) is season 4. The reason it is surprising, is because this season doesn’t contain any of the highest rated episodes (see below).
  • The season with the lowest average rating: Season 6
    Sadly, the despite the great anticipation and maybe due to great expectations, the last season of the show wasn’t a successful one, at least according to many of the viewers. Fan believed that the characters didn’t get the screen time and attention they deserved after building them up for seven seasons.
  • First episode got rating of: 9.0
    The show took off with a great start sweeping fans from across the world.
  • The episodes that got the highest rating are:
    • Season 3, Episode 9 – “The Rains of Castamere”
    • Season 5, Episode 8 – “Hardhome”
    • Season 6, Episode 9 – “Battle of the Bastards”
    • Season 6, Episode 10 – “The Winds of Winter”
      All of those episodes got a total average episode of 9.9. However, “Battle of the Bastards” got over 150,000 rates which is the most number of rates for any Game of Thrones episode and by many considered to be the best Game of Thrones episode to date.

battle of the bastards

  • The episode that got the lowest rating is: Season 5, Episode 6 – “Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken”
    This episode got the lowest rating for an episode in Game of Thrones. Its average rating is 8.1. Very low for a Game of Thrones episode but still a great rating for a TV show.
  • The episode that got the most number of rates is: Season 6, Episode 9 – “Battle of the Bastards”
    This episode got a whopping number of rates. Over 150,000 users logged in to IMDB to rate this episode alone (true to end of 2018). Without a doubt, a great episode, a climax point of the show with a number of extras unseen before.
  • The shortest episode is: Season 7, Episode 4 – “The Spoils of War”. Total time of 50 minutes.
    While this is the shortest episode in Game of Thrones, its length is similar to most episodes in earlier seasons that ranged between 50 to 60 minutes.
  • The longest episode is: Season 7, Episode 7 – “The Dragon and the Wolf”. Total time of 80 minutes.
    It the first 7 GoT seasons, this is the only episode that was longer than 70 minutes. Funny enough, it is in the same season as the shortest episode of the series. Another thing we know about season 8, is it will have long episodes.
  • Total air time so far: 3,784 minutes.
    3,784 minutes equal to 63 hours, which equal to more than 2 and half days. Meaning, if you are planning to catch up all episodes before the first episode in Game of Thrones season 8, you should start watching Friday 6am if you want to finish before Sunday 9pm.

  • The episode with the most number of deaths is: Season 6, Episode 10 – “The Winds of Winter”. 11 important Game of Thrones characters deaths.
    Death in Game of Thrones is something of routine. Out of the first 67 episodes, only 10 didn’t have an important character taken away.
