Don't Spoil the Endgame! (Or Game of Thrones)

I saw Avengers: Endgame, and loved it - and I consider myself very lucky, not only because it was so very great but because all of my social media and news feeds are rife with spoilers. Even the articles, essays and videos I've seen with "spoiler warning" in their title, go on to give away huge plot points in the headline, and then really hammer it home with an accompanying thumbnail. Not cool, and while we're at it why do even legitimate news websites think it's OK to start posting similarly spoiling headlines within minutes of Game of Thrones airing? 

Enough with the spoilers, please! When more of you have had a chance to see Endgame, and when I'm comfortable that I won't be contributing to the epidemic of spoiling, I'll give my full review. For tonight, I'm being very vague but I'm very happy to say it's the best of Marvel's films to date. For more details - not too many more, don't worry - listen to tonight's episode.

No spoilers!

The consensus seems to be that these are going to be 3 amazing hours, after which the Marvel Cinematic Universe will never be the same again.
