Don’t worry, I’m not going to share any specific spoilers here, I’m just going to talk about being spoiled on any show in general.
I am a total spoiler whore (I wonder if I can make a schematic on that?) It doesn’t matter the TV show, I will read anything about upcoming episodes or news on anything I watch or read. Sometimes it works in my favor. For example, since Days airs everyday I enjoy knowing what’s coming in 2-3 weeks in advance. However, I have found that knowing the play by play of the scenes, such as prevuse, really ruins the episode for me unless it’s Chick related as I can’t get enough of Nick lately. (Seriously there is a serious drought on Chick spoilers which concerns me. I’m not sure I know where they are going with this storyline. I hate being in the dark).
Then there is Lost. I should stop reading spoilers on this show. They depress me. The show is seriously experiencing a bad case of cast bloat reading spoilers on new characters or spoilers that make the show even more Jack-centered (don’t get me wrong I like Jack up to a point but for a character who was originally supposed to be killed off in the pilot I grow tired of how everything nearly ties back to him.) I get irritable. I need to just turn off my TWoP subscription for the spoiler with speculation thread and be done with it.
So why can’t I? Is it a unconscious need that I must know exactly what is going to happen in the future? That I’m the type of person who, if walking by a package marked Tripp’s birthday present for 2007–don’t open! I still would take a peek if I could get away with it? What is wrong with me? Why do I do this to myself? And my last question which is the most important, am I the only one?
