I'm wondering by seeing the richness of episodes in Game of Thrones. What is the average making cost of a single Game of Thrones episode?
According to a very recent (2 days old) Guardian article:
Game of Thrones costs HBO something in the region of $6m an episode to produce.
some episodes of "Game of Thrones" actually have cracked that obscene average budget of $6 million per. That Battle of Blackwater episode? Where the Imp leaked a ship's worth of highly flammable Mountain Dew into the harbor and blew up half of Stannis's army? That cost a reported $8 million.
The pilot was also extravagant, costing more than $10m.
