Uh oh. After May 17's controversial episode, Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken many said they would swear off Game of Thrones.

Many were deeply unhappy about the treatment of Sansa and the inclusion of sexual assault against her that did not exist in the book's treatment. A lot of people said this was the final straw and vowed to stop watching the show entirely.

Well last Sunday's ratings might have provided a peek behind the ratings curtain as TV on the Numbers is reporting a big drop-off in viewers compared to the previous week.

Game of Thrones only garnered 5.5 million viewers with a 2.5 share of the 18-59 demographic for Sunday's The Gift. Whereas, the vilified episode received 6.2 million viewers or a 3.1 share of the 18-49 demographic.

Before you grab your pitchforks or pat yourselves on the back, keep in mind that this step decline could just as easily have been the work of the Memorial Day weekend. Remember that sweet blissful three days you had off? Those were the days.

That Improbable Point Break Remake Has an Equally Improbable Trailer

We know you put it out of your mind, we did as well. But Lo, the angels of Hollywood have spoken and the remake of 1991's classic Point Break will actually release this winter.

Here's your first look at the Keanu-Reeves-impersonator Luke Bracey and the nothing-at-all-like-Patrick-Swayze Édgar Ramírez doing death defying things in the name of some Robin Hood aspirations.

But here's the thing: Warner Bros. didn't want you to watch this movie and wish for more, no. So they turned everything up to 13, bypassing 11 and 12, in some slightly silly maelstrom of EXTREME action.

For instance, here's some surfing from the original:



And here's some from the new trailer:



How EXTREME!

Whether this trailer excites you or not, we can all be equally sad that we won't see Keanu trying with all of his little heart to speak Spanish in the near future.
