Well, if you give spoilers to things you're a dick. So there's that.

I would never spoil a finale  for her... in fact, I would make sure she had the best finale ever, and several of them. If you know what I mean and I think you do.

The fact that that is her favorite show makes me love her a little less.

/only a little
//call me, Jen

Pimpsta's Law #57: People who habitually spoil movies and TV shows are vile and disgusting members of the human race who should be exterminated from the gene pool with extreme prejudice.

So the asswipe article writer tells us the spoiler that got Jennifer pissed off.

The editors at news.com.au need a swift kick in the hotbox

Ignoring the first few episodes of Dana-issues, Season 3 was actually pretty good.

yeah, i just got spoilerized from this article.  whoop-di-do.  hasn't it become universal etiquette to give a spoiler alert (or change the text somehow so that you have to actively seek out the spoiler info)?

thanks for spoiling the ending of that interview for me.

You'd write Homeland fanfic for her? That's so sweet.

I'm pretty sure you could create a Saul/Adal slashfic that takes place after they lock the Senator in the conference room.

All the women in Louisville are just like her. Really. It's something in the water.  Great town. Think about Kentucky for awhile. Jennifer Lawrence. Johnny Depp. George Clooney. Tom Cruise.

It's a Kentucky world.

The problem wasn't so much the spoiling as much as it was that Jennifer had given a cue that she'd only seen the first two seasons and hadn't gotten to the end of Season 3 yet. There's a statute of limitations on spoilers, granted, but if you know someone's currently in the process of working their way through the story, you let them go at their own pace no matter how old the work is. You don't blurt out stuff you know they haven't seen yet. If you know someone's watching Planet of the Apes for the first time and doesn't know what happens, it doesn't matter if the rest of us know it's Earth. You don't blurt it out halfway through their viewing.

My rule:

Shows or movies get ONE YEAR after the original air date of no spoilers, or you must preface it with "spoiler alert". If someone tells you to shut up, you do.

After that, it's free game. I want to talk about this stuff eventually, and a year is long enough without having to care whether or not someone around me is behind on the times.

That was a weird reaction to meeting the actor who plays Brody.

Spoiler Alert:


I want to lick her all over.

People who biatch about spoilers this far after the fact are just whiny little brats. Tell me, how long after the fact are people supposed to keep mum on a show? Either keep current on your TV and movie watching or lock yourself in a room with no outside influences.

I keep out of Game of Thrones threads for this very reason. It is a current TV show, and many are working their way through the story. But for some reason, GoT book fans have such a superiority complex over the rest of us, they need to turn every TV thread anywhere on the internet (including here) in to a book thread, or just actively spoiling it. They seem to think that, just because you haven't read their favorite book a decade ago, it's a detriment to your character, and you deserve your enjoyment spoiled.

Yeah, damn her for even telling the reporter she had seen THE FIRST TWO SEASONS so the reporter would know it was okay to talk about the third season, right? Oh, wait a sec...

That's why I'm hoping the show passes by Martin. They won't know how to function not being able to spoil part of the story a year in advance.

The first 3 of those books are the only ones worth a damn anyway.

It is dickish. The third season ended just last month, while she was likely on the road doing promotional work for 2 movies. The reporter should have been able to put 2 and 2 together and realize she probably hadn't had a chance to watch it yet.

I really liked the fifth one, much more than the fourth.

I haven't watched season three yet. I don't mind though since knowing doesn't take away from the show.
