Avoiding Breaking Bad Spoilers [No Spoilers]
Anyways, enough with the critique. The point of this post is that there's no fucking way I'll be able to avoid spoilers unless I choose to completely give up the internet. I don't have cable (and like I said I'm behind already) so I don't get to see the episodes the minute they air. I've already had one major Season 5 Part 2 event spoiled for me, and now I'm starting to have an idea of another one. People on the internet just need to shut the up about it.
Keep in mind, I'm not reading any of this on Breaking Bad discussion forums or even on reviews on episodes or discussion posts or anything! I'm actively not reading any of those things. I'm not Googling or Wikipedia'ing anything about Breaking Bad for fear of spoilers. And yet they continue to randomly pop up and it's infuriating.
Specifically, I ran into my first spoiler on the IGN comments section of a post about The Killing being canceled. Sure, that show and Breaking Bad are on the same channel, but that is the extent of their commonalities. I should be able to freely browse the comments of that post without having to worry about spoilers. And right now I just ran into another spoiler on a completely unrelated post in /r/WTF on Reddit. I would post a link to it, but that would be giving away the slightest hint of something that happened on the show, and I don't want to do that. (It wasn't some troll going around posting spoilers, which happens a lot on Reddit but quickly gets downvoted. Instead, this was some moron trying to make a dumb joke.)
So people, if you watch Breaking Bad, please feel free to discuss it on all the various discussion forums around the internet. But again, I ask you to shut the up about it if you are not on some sort of Breaking Bad discussion board. I don't care how much or little you reveal, how much of an inside joke is involved, or how much you think it's not a spoiler. I'm pretty smart, I can pick up on innuendo, and I'm familiar enough with the show to at least have an idea of what you're talking about.
Like I said, I don't have cable and haven't had it for a long time. I don't really even get interested in a show until it's been on for a few years. I can't be the only one out here in this internet age that watches TV shows in this fashion. I shouldn't be punished for not being able to keep up on TV shows 100% of the time, especially when I'm doing my absolute best to avoid spoilers about the show. This isn't the first time I've had MAJOR plot points revealed in shows that I like:
As you can see, since the CAG blogs are NOT the proper place to discuss anything about the Sopranos or Mad Men, I have properly hidden and labeled those spoilers so that I don't ruin the experience for others who may be interested in watching the shows.
