*SPOILER ALERT* There will be NO spoilers in this post for plots that have developed within the last five years. I think that is more than fair. If you don’t know the secret truth about Bruce Willis in The Sixth Sense, do NOT read on. But I will not spoil any new TV shows. Promise.
We need a plan.
I’m hooked on approximately 15 different Netflix shows. It’s been a big few months recently, with the girls back in orange, the guys back on thrones, the happenings in the White House, the beach in Florida Keys.
But that’s not even the real drama. The real drama is the fights breaking out alllll over the Internet.
Spoilers. There’s nothing worse than spoilers. Except for people who go on social media during the finale of The Bachelor, even though they “haven’t had a chance to watch it yet”, and then hurl abuse at their Facebook friends who were just doing a shout-out to the new happy couple.
Need to discuss a show but can’t? That’s what The Binge is here for. (Post continues after video.)
I’m in two minds about it. I hate spoilers. Naming a person who died on GoT because you got to watch the show before everyone else, is a supremely shitty thing to do. It should be the 11th Commandment. ‘Thou shalt not spoil a TV show for thy Facebook friends’.
But. But. BUT… If it’s a show that EVERYONE is talking about, like a final episode that we’ve all been holding our breath for, or a live grand finale of a reality TV show, and you aren’t watching it until the weekend, then I think you should just STAY OFF SOCIAL MEDIA.
I know that’s a harsh call, but seriously. You know everyone will be talking about it. It’s like you are trying to ruin it for yourself. Just suck it up and stay the f*** away from Facebook for one measly night, you fool. (Or quit your job so you can watch it on time with the rest of us).
But. But. BUT… Spoilers are bullshit anyway. So let’s lay out some really good ground rules right now from both points of view, especially in this month of epic new episodes.
