Anyone recall the episode of How I Met Your Mother when the gang tired to watch the SuperBowl after it was recorded, because they could not see it in real time for a funeral?
One guy made a Sensory Deprivation mask, and the newscaster went la la la la during the sportscast, desperately trying not to hear which team won.
Ultimately, they determined that the joy of the show, and sharing it with friends, was better than knowing a spoiler.
I read the last chapter of a book to see if it is any good. Yes, even murder mysteries. I did not start Harry Potter until after book 7 came out. I still read. I still enjoy.
For TV, I like the anticipation of when/how a known event will unfold, the editing, the reactions.
maybe I am weird. But spoilers do not bother me.
by the way, Soylent Green is people!!!
Snape is not evil!
The butler did it.
