In a season of long-running shows bringing their stories to a (mostly satisfying) end, The Big Bang Theory did just that: wrap up the adventures of very smart people who live in a shared apartment and spend their free time playing Settlers of Catan.Along with physicists Sheldon and Leonard, we also said goodbye to a character who joined in season 3 and soon moved in to the Big Bang building permanently.Bespectacled neurobiologist Dr. Amy Farrah Fowler, alumni of Harvard and, spoiler, wife of Sheldon, represents the world of science, technology, engineering and mathematics.Played by Mayim Bialik (of Blossom fame), Dr. Amy made her entrance as a love interest to socially inept child prodigy Sheldon Cooper, wooing him with lines like, "All forms of physical contact, up to and including coitus, are off the table."A true TV love story rivaling Jon Snow and Ygritte soon blossomed, though with less death and more intellectual discussion.Adept at both comedy and being really smart, Bialik is a neuroscientist in real life, having completed her Ph.D. at UCLA in 2007.

We're diving into all the questions the series never answered here, so take note: You're entering Spoiler Town.Of course, if you're over asking questions and would rather get answers, you can read our full recap of the final episode which goes deep on the fate of the Iron Throne or head to our look at where every character finished up now the show is finally over.Why can't he just warg into Drogon and then dive as far down in the ocean as possible and leave him there?There's a few burning questions from the final episode that relate to the Dothraki, the horse-bound warriors that eat hearts, and seemed totally obliterated by the Battle of Winterfell.Remarkably, they still have a significant force and are complicit in Dany's torching of King's Landing.Jon better have thanked the Lord of Light for that save because the Dothraki just leaving him to rot in a cell is decidedly not Dothraki.

The series finale of Game of Thrones defied pretty much all the predictions as to who would emerge triumphant and sit on the Iron Throne, in what has proved to be the most polarizing and controversial season yet.Showrunners David Benioff and David B. Weiss got the plane on the ground in the end—but it wasn't a pretty landing, and there's bound to be a lot of grumbling from dissatisfied customers.Let's get the controversial plot turn from last week out of the way up front, since it drove much of what transpired in the finale, and pretty much encapsulates the best and worst aspects of this final season.She proceeds not to just incinerate the Red Keep where Cersei has been watching the battle from afar—which is what everyone expected—but to rain down dragon fire on all the innocent civilians who Cersei brought in to serve as a human shield.She's always had equal parts kindness and cruelty, and she's literally solved every problem she's encountered over eight seasons by raining down fire and blood.That's exactly what she explicitly vowed to do to take back the Iron Throne; it's what Varys promised she would do when he recruited Dorne and the Tyrells of Highgarden to her cause.

Did we see that coming.Game of Thrones is over and despite what you may have thought of the episode as a whole, it's big moment was near perfect.Yep, after a pep talk from Tyrion Lannister.Daenerys Targaryen just got a knife in the gut from Jon Snow in one of the grimmest murder-kisses in TV history.She will always be my Queen then URGH.That was bad enough, but the worst part -- 100% -- was Drogon's mourning period.

With the massively anticipated OnePlus 7 series now public, we decided to look back at the outgoing models to see just how well they stack up in 2019 (spoiler alert: they’re still top-notch!).However, there are some key advantages to the OnePlus 6 and 6T over cheaper models, advantages that show themselves even when the devices are over six months old.Sure, these panels don’t quite match the OnePlus 7 Pro’s QHD or even UHD displays we see on some smartphones, but they don’t have to, and they come bearing advantages.The use of AMOLED screens has given OnePlus a massive advantage over its 2019 mid-range competition.The perfect blacks and deep contrast immerse you in a way that LCD just cannot, especially in the dark and when watching dark content, where LCD gives off an unnatural glow.I tested PUBG Mobile and Real Racing 3 to try and get these things to trip but they’re still as smooth as butter, a testament to their solid software and hardware combination.

Best-selling horror author Stephen King is bucking the trend of piling hate onto Game of Thrones season 8.King is a notable fan of the show and he's issued his opinions on it before, including how he would like to see it end.His latest Game of Thrones-themed tweet is a spoiler-y hot take on the final episodes.King saddled up a white horse and rode it to the final season's rescue, saying "I've loved this last season of GoT, including Dani going bugshit all over King's Landing."He suggests the fan negativity stems from people not wanting the show to end at all.Season 8 has been divisive.

This pair of buds works with a triple-armature driver structure and one GoerTek dynamic driver – plus they sound pretty great.They’re designed with the OnePlus 7 family of devices in mind – they match the hardware – but they’re smooth and simple enough to collaborate with any phone that supports Bluetooth.The OnePlus Bullets Wireless 2 works with “Warp Charge” fast charging tech for fast charging of battery life.According to OnePlus, they get around 10 hours of playback time out of 10 minutes of charge.With a full charge, OnePlus suggests they get a total of 14 hours of playback.Spoiler alert – they’re pretty gosh-darned accurate.

China‘s Great Firewall just got higher as Wikipedia has been added to Beijing’s no-no list.The government hasn’t explained why it’s blocking the free online encyclopedia, but frankly it’s not surprising.Shutting down a platform that has endless information makes sense if the mere presence of Winnie the Pooh was too much for President Xi Jinping and his crew to handle.But what other websites are currently blocked?Well, that’s where Comparitech’s tool comes in.You can use it to see whether a certain domain has been blocked in China, and in which areas of the country it’s currently unavailable.

(Note: This article includes key events in Avengers: Endgame, so consider this a spoiler warning for anyone who hasn’t seen the film yet.)Although the conversations surrounding the movie’s most significant character arcs tend to focus on Captain America and Iron Man, a change in one particular character’s status could have the most direct — and immediate — effect on the next phase of the MCU: Black Widow’s death.The long-rumored (and long-requested) Black Widow movie began gaining momentum back in January 2018 when Marvel Studios hired screenwriter Jac Schaeffer to pen the script, and the buzz grew louder a few months later when Lore director Cate Shortland was attached to direct.When Marvel handed MCU veteran Scarlett Johansson an impressive $15 million payday for the film, though, the project’s status officially shifted from “potential” to greenlight.With Robert Downey Jr.’s Iron Man and Chris Evans’ Captain America exiting the MCU after Endgame, the only remaining, active members of the original Avengers were Thor, Bruce Banner, Black Widow, and Hawkeye.Predictions regarding the future of the MCU often cited Johansson’s character as the most likely to lead the team post-Endgame, and the announcement of a Hawkeye television series focusing on him training his protege only seemed to increase the likelihood of a Black Widow-led Avengers.

Such is the popularity of online fan theories that there is very rarely a scenario available to filmmakers that has not been theorised at length by at least someone on the internet.This comes through most clearly in one of the most talked about reveals in the sixth season of Game of Thrones, when fans learned the origin of Hodor's disability – and his unusual name.If even the most bizarre plot turn in a big show had been predicted by someone in advance, what hope is there for filmmakers looking to pull the rug?There is something democratic about it, and since there are so many theories, the impact of any one accurate one is rather diluted.”It's certainly true that the sheer breadth of fan theories makes it more difficult for any particular idea to have any impact as a 'spoiler'.While the notion that Bran Stark might turn out to be the Night King has been a widely discussed theory for years, there are equally credible theories suggesting the Night King could be the mythical 'Prince That Was Promised', the supposedly dead Rhaegar Targaryen, or even Jon Snow.

There was plenty of fire to go around, but for the most part, the episode was a flurry of hard-to-see action taking place in poorly lit environments.Know that the decision to film the episode in such a fashion was a purposeful one, according to cinematographer Fabian Wagner, and that he blames your TV settings or the quality of your screen if you had trouble making out what was happening.After all, Wagner says the show was directed and shot like a cinematic experience that could be viewed in a movie theater, even though it’s predominantly streamed at compressed quality to screens of all shapes and sizes.In a pair of interviews given to Wired UK and TMZ, Wagner explained the reasoning behind the artistic choice to film such a dark, claustrophobic battle.He also pointed the finger at technology, specifically a lack of quality and understanding of it.“A lot of the problem is that a lot of people don’t know how to tune their TVs properly,” Wagner told Wired UK.

The future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe remains somewhat uncertain following the events of Avengers: Endgame, but the context for at least one confirmed upcoming project became a little clearer thanks to the Infinity War sequel.Although Endgame left us with plenty of questions about the future of the MCU, it gave us a pretty good idea how the Loki series — coming to Disney Plus — will fit into the MCU.(Note: We’ll be discussing some key events and concepts revealed in Avengers: Endgame from this point forward, so consider this a spoiler warning if you haven’t seen the movie yet.)The official synopsis for the Loki series indicates that it will follow the Asgardian trickster as he influences events throughout human history, with MCU veteran Tom Hiddleston reprising his role as the title character.Loki has always had a knack for popping up when and where you least expect him, but the events of Avengers: Infinity War appeared to end his story in the MCU, giving him a redemptive arc across Thor: Ragnarok and Infinity War that let him go out on a positive note.That’s why it was surprising to learn in September 2018 — well after Loki’s fate had seemingly been decided — that he was getting his own series on the Disney Plus streaming service.

Toyota's 86 platform is pretty old by now, but that doesn't make us love it any less.It's a wonderful little sports car, and while we'd like to see it get a comprehensive update, we may be waiting on that for a while.In the meantime, Toyota announced on Tuesday that it would make a special Hakone Edition 86 available for the 2020 model year.Well, the Hakone Turnpike is one of Japan's most famous and beloved driving roads and since the 86 is currently one of Japan's most beloved driver's cars, it kind of makes sense.So, now we know why it's called the Hakone Edition, but what do you get with the Hakone Edition package?Well, other than the handsome green metallic paint, 17-inch bronze wheels and a rear deck spoiler it's mostly just tan interior accents.
I should know better than to think I can completely avoid the zeitgeist around Avengers: Endgame and the latest season of Game of Thrones.But for years, I’ve done just fine staying out of trouble on most social media.YouTube’s recommendation algorithm, however, is out to get me.A few years ago, I only really had to worry about reading comments, but as the recommendation algorithm becomes more targeted, it’s become far more likely to spoil my favorite movies and shows too.It’s not this bad on Facebook or Twitter; it’s easier to zip my eyes past certain keywords, fast enough to avoid really reading anything.Besides, the people I follow, at least, tend to be pretty respectful about posting spoilers online.

Told you about who made it back, who's kinda gone and who's really gone.Because this is where I tell you how those people get those things (that's the super-clever code name we used in the very spoiler-sensitive CNET newsroom for our colleagues who haven't yet caught Infinity War's sequel).They've also been advised not to talk to their past selves or bet on any sports events.Present-day Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) visits the Sanctum Sanctorum looking for Doctor Strange and his Time Stone.Hulk clearly should have checked out our article on how to watch every Marvel movie and TV show in the perfect order.In the end, it's as simple as telling the wizard that Doctor Strange actually volunteered it to Thanos because it was the only way.

Kids around the world seeing Avengers: Endgame this weekend will no doubt be talking about the movie at school come Monday -- and one teacher doesn't want to hear a word.Twitter user @kamiilious tweeted a photo Friday of what she says is a note her teacher affixed to her classroom door begging students to stay spoiler-free when anywhere near him."My little brother is on Tampa on a business trip.I am waiting until he gets back to see Avengers: Endgame.That will be Wednesday at the SOONEST," the tweet reads."DO NOT discuss ANYTHING about it anywhere near my classroom UNTIL THIS SIGN COMES DOWN.
