We’re just a few short days from the end of Top Gear. Or perhaps, as Jeremy Clarkson might say through a megaphone, it is not the end. It is not the beginning. It is not the beginning of the end. This is just perhaps the end of the beginning.
On Sunday, Top Gear, in its current form, comes to an end as the BBC burns off the final footage of the Clarkson/Hammond/May era of Top Gear. While Clarkson says that the trio are weeks away from announcing their new gig, there is still one final Top Gear for us to watch.
To look back on the last 21 seasons and 13 years of Top Gear, we have a handy infographic looking back on the best destruction of Top Gear.
The Game of Thrones finale ended last week with a lot of angry fans after the death of a certain beloved character. Seriously though, what would you expect? George R. R. Martin did say that the ending of his books will be bittersweet, so don’t expect everything to be tied up in a nice bow for all the heroes. Anyway, at least Emilia Clarke’s character is still alive and kicking for the moment. While you wait for the next season of GoT, you can catch her in the upcoming Terminator Genisys.

After last season and this week’s episode, I’m not sure that the hype over Episode Nines shouldn’t be replaced with hype over Episode Tens. While some big things might happen in Episode Nine, for the second year in a row, it was the season finale that was the best episode of the season. Now that the TV show has reached the end of the books, the story has run out on a number of characters.
It’s been 12 years since the original flick but Jurassic World, the fourth installment of the franchise is finally in theatres and it’s a worthy sequel to the dinosaur-centric films. Despite a few minor flaws, the overall experience of the movie is quite good. Anyway, let’s start off this edition of the ELO with the leading lady Bryce Dallas Howard.

There are two types of Episode Nines in Game of Thrones. The first is the big plot-heavy episodes that bring us to the climax of many of the show’s big stories throughout the season. The other are the more tightly focused big budget battle episodes. The Dance of Dragons was definitely more the former but the ending certainly had the spectacle of the latter.
In cinemas this weekend you can catch Melissa McCarthy in the hilarious film Spy. In addition to the positive message of how an ordinary somebody can become a super spy, the film is also violent, crude and funny. Rose Byrne also does a brilliant turn in her villainous role.

If you gave up on Game of Thrones two weeks ago, I feel bad for you son. You’ve got 99 problems but one of the best episodes in the show’s history ain’t one.
In the run up to this week’s episode, I was mentioning to my show watching friends that I wasn’t really sure what big events we had to look forward to heading into the final three episodes of the season. I wasn’t expecting the big blowouts we got in seasons two and four but maybe some big events scattered about Westeros like in season three. While I’m still not sure we’ll even get that in episode nine, Hardhome certainly brought the spectacle.
