Kristen Bell reacts to some twisty fan theories about ‘The Good Place’

Seeing as The Good Place is set in an afterlife where not everything is as it seems, it’s not surprising people have come up with a fan theory or two about the show.

This ‘Game of Thrones’ fan theory may just have nailed the entire plot of Season 8

That doesn’t mean it’s too early to start making predictions, though. With filming well underway and the cast constantly being asked about the show in interviews, the clues have already started rolling in. 

Over on the Game of Thrones subreddit, the theory engine is still churning just as strong as ever.

This video of random Scottish people crowdsurfing in the road is simply glorious

If you want to experience something close to the feeling of flying but are either a) scared of heights or b) don’t have the money for a parachute/hang glider/airplane ticket/jetpack, your best bet is probably crowdsurfing.
