18 Behind-the-Scenes Secrets of Game of Thrones
A season seven episode set a pyrotechnics record

The episode set a pyrotechnics record for the number of people set on fire during a single scene. Prestigious, right? Twenty stuntmen were set aflame at the same time for the battle sequence, something that had never been done on a TV show before. The showrunners explained that the fact that they have dragons on the show really expands on what they can do damage-wise and helps inspire them to up the ante.
