We live in an age of too much TV. Last year saw 455 different shows (including broadcast, cable, and streaming) air. So it's understandable if you've fallen behind on popular shows or are way ahead of everyone else you know because of your incalculable amount of free time. (Cool.)
The problem is that everyone -- including you! -- wants to talk about TV. At length. Which is how we entered the age of peak TV "spoilers," those nasty day-ruiners derived from plot twists, surprise deaths, epic battles, and cliffhanger resolutions. You'd think it would be easy to avoid hearing about the shocking climax of your favorite hour-long drama, or escape pissing someone off by mentioning that crazy turn of events on last night's Game of Thrones. You would be wrong.
Navigating a world where everyone is on a different viewing schedule, everyone is plugged into one another's business through their phones, and everyone has different definitions of spoilers is impossible. Or was. Until now.
After watching tons of TV, being spoiled in every way imaginable, and probably losing a friend or two (dozen) for our own infractions, we've found the line between rightful spoiler rage and unworthy whining. Live by these rules and you'll never be the spoiled, or the spoiler, again.
