While we’re all desperately trying to dodge spoilers from tonight’s Game of Thrones finale (already broadcast in the USA), it has transpired that last week’s episode – The Battle of the Bastards – hasofficiallymade it as IMDB’s top rated TV episode of all time.
To be honest, we’re not surprised. Seeing Jon Snow beat Ramsay Bolton to a bloody pulp was satisfying (to say the least), and even before that, the acting, the special effects and the unyielding tension (when Rickon was running away from Ramsay’s arrows!) were all incredible.
92,000 people have voted on it, and it has a 10/10 rating. It’s stolen the top spot from Breaking Bad’sOzymandias (quick spoiler alert in case any of you are currently watching – or have plans to watch it) – the episode in which Hank is killed.
That has a rating of 9.7.
As far as top TV series go, Game of Thrones as a whole is only in fourth place. Band of Brothers holds the top spot, Planet Earth is second, and Breaking Bad is third.
We wouldn’t be surprised if, by the time Game of Thrones wraps up, it’s moved up a couple of places…
Roll on tonight’s finale..

An Ibiza-bound 24 year old was ‘taken aback’ when he first say the clingy t-shirt that his girlfriend had designed for him.
Abbie Bartlett, 20, commissioned a garment which features a montage of photos of her and Leon Connelly with the text:
‘I love my girlfriend Abbie, I hate the girls in Ibiza, so please stay away from me.’ Let’s hope for Abbie’s sake that reverse psychology isn’t really a thing.
Leon, a father of one, said: ‘At first I thought is she serious? She wanted me to wear it to all the big clubs like Pacha etc.
‘But now I get that it’s a joke I’m happy enough to go along with it, that’s just how our relationship is it’s just silly.’
The couple have been together for six years and have a five-year-old daughter Harley.(Sounds like you’ve got him pretty attached as it is there Abbie)
Tell us what you think, is this good old fashioned fun? Or would it freak you the hell out?

Most people agree that J.J Abrams hit it out of the park when it comes to The Force Awakens.
It got almost unanimously positive reviews (from both critics and audiences), with perhaps the only criticism being that in terms of plot, it might have been just a little bit close to A New Hope.
There’s an outsider from a sandy planet (Luke/Rey), there’s an evil leader who used to be good (Darth Vader/Kylo Ren), and then there’s the StarKiller Base, which is basically the Death Star on steroids.
Now, while some people probably saw this as playing it safe (rolling out the same old formula that worked so well back in 1977), J.J Abrams revealed (at the Tribeca Film Festival) that there was a bit more to the decision that just that…
“This movie [The Force Awakens] was a bridge and a kind of reminder; the audience needed to be reminded what Star Wars is, but it needed to be established with something familiar, with a sense of where we are going to new lands, which is very much what 8 and 9 do.The weird thing about that movie is that it had been so long since the last one. Obviously the prequels had existed in between and we wanted to, sort of, reclaim the story. So we very consciously and I know it is derided for this we very consciously tried to borrow familiar beats so the rest of the movie could hang on something that we knew was Star Wars.”
Has that satisfied you? Are you still annoyed that the plots were so similar?Or didn’t you mind too much in the first place.

The Fontana dell’Acqua Paola is a beautiful fountain, constructed in 1612 to mark the end of theAcqua Paola aqueduct, it can be found in Rome, Italy.
Well, it’s either that or some paddling pool for hot (temperature wise (behave)) ladies…
That’s right, locals were furious at the sightof three girls enjoying themselves, having stripped down to bikinis, and jumping into the fountain.
Sure, temperatures had reached 32 degrees Celsius but, you know, don’t hop in the ancient fountain. Locals have gone ahead and presumed that the girls are either English or German down to their lack of respect but, as of yet, we’re in the dark.
Were they just wandering around Rome in their bikinis looking for an opportune moment to get wet? Seems too convenient, like it could be an advert for something…
Over Twitter the girls were generally criticised withone personsaying‘You should go and do something similar in England or Germany. I’m going to tomorrow in my boxer shorts and swimming cap.’ (good luck doing both in a day) and another saying “these women are so rude!”
The Police were also shamed over social media for not jumping in… wrong choice of words… stopping it? As well as the photographer who people are saying should have told them off instead of taking pictures.
However, one tweeter praised them for at least making the monument relevant, saying‘These young girls are giving meaning to ancient remains that are generally ignored!‘ That’s a nice optimistic way of looking at it, isn’t it?
You’d have thought that, as long as no damage was done, it would be fine and people should chill out but I guess it comes down to a manner of respect. I don’t suppose I’d be elated if someone climbed Nelson’s Column and sat on his shoulders… I wouldn’t be that fussed but, you know, respect and stuff.

If there are two things the internet loves, it’s lovely proposals and heartwarming videos of people getting to hear or see for the first time – and these guys have managed both. And it’s seriously lovely and heartwarming.
Andrea Diaz had just had a cochlear implant put in by doctors, a device that is essentially the badass older brother of the hearing aid, and her reaction to having it turned on can be seen in a new video that’s making its rounds on the internet.
Kevin Peakman, today’s Prince Charming, tells her I wanted to make one of the first things that you hear me asking you to marry me.
Shedoesn’t even hesitate when shesays yes, and then saysI can hear your voice.
Oh, the feels.
Where hearing aids just amplify sound, cochlear implants actuallydo the work of damaged parts of the inner ear (cochlea) and are inserted behind the ear. There are currently about 11,000 people using cochlear implants in the UK.

Team GB swimmerAdam Peaty smashed his own world record yesterday, swimming 100 metres (breaststroke) in 57.55 seconds.
He set the record last year, swimming the same distance in 57.92 seconds, and he claims that he was able to beat it this timethanks to the “adrenaline rush” he got from walking into Rio’s aquatic centre.
Speaking to the Financial Times, he said:
“As soon as I walked in, it was either fight or flight and I chose to actually get something out of it. You can either be shy of the arena or take advantage of it.”
Winning his heat, he easily qualified for tomorrow’s final, where he will be hoping to win Gold.
If he succeeds, he will be GB’s first male swimming champion in 28 years.
CyclistsChris Froome and Geraint Thomas competed in the men’s road race yesterday, but both missed out on medals.

Are you going crazy for the latest craze that is loom bands? If so then you may be pleased to hear that you can now own a dress made from them – if you happen to have £154,000 in your bank account that is.
The loom band trend appears to be reaching dizzy new heights as eBay bids for a dress made out of the colourful bands currently sits at £153,900.
The dress, which is made to fit girls aged between four and six, appears to have been weaved from hundreds of the rubber loops by hand.
So far there have been a reported 126 bids for the garment that was made in Wales, and there are still four days left for the price to increase, The Independent reported.
The eBay listing was made by user helenwright72, and gives minimal information about the creation of the dress, simply describing it as a “multi coloured dress made from loom bands”.
Loom bands are escalating quickly, and have been worn by royalty, pop stars and even football players, and if you are a parent with a child of a certain age, you will probably be only too aware of the loom band craze.
