We heard great wailing and gnashing of teeth from the geek community this week, as both The Big Bang Theory and Game of Thrones ended their original content television runs. The label of “series finale” always sounds so, well, final, doesn’t it?
Did last week seem like a rehash of the week before? Basketball playoffs, every good seat in every good movie theater full of Avengers fans, and on Game of Thrones (spoiler alert!) there was drinking and betrayal and death. And, no spoiler alert, “randy” behavior (for our British readers).
Every American adult winces when they see or hear the date, “April 15th.” Sadly, some folks housebound by the Spring Snow Smackdown compounded their misery by working on their taxes as the winds howled outside.
Anything big happen in the last few days? Oh, yeah, a bunch of new commercials appeared during a punting exhibition by the Los Angeles Rams. Yes, Super Bowl LIII came and ended the same way six of the last 17 have, with the New England Patriots hoisting the trophy. Biggest surprise?
