Game of Thrones showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss having a healthy rivalry with Breaking Bad TV show. Breaking Bad‘s Ozymandias episode got 10/10 rating on IMDb the largest TV and film data base on the Internet, Game of Thrones Battle of the Bastards episode was 10/10 rating for a while after it aired, but it dropped to 9.9/10 after some time. Here is what showrunners joked about this.
After that episode (“Battle of the Bastards”) 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 f**kin Rian!
Somebody screwed us. I think Rian opened over 25,000 IMDb accounts and just voted us down.” You’re safe for now, Breaking Bad. (But) I’m really, really happy for Miguel. He did such an incredible job with those two episode.
