How Long Before a Spoiler Isn’t a Spoiler Anymore?
“The Walking Dead” second half premiere was last night. If I were to say anything on the air or in this post people would be very angry. Understandable, since the episode just aired last night. Showing a photo of Carl, played by Chandler Riggs, eating pudding on a rooftop from last night’s episode won’t blow anything for you, but there still might be one person who freaks out about it.
On Friday I saw a column on Entertainment Weekly’s website about how long a spoiler is a spoiler. For TV shows, writer Dalton Ross said at minimum a 24 hour window should be observed. Movies obviously should be longer, but there’s still people who get mad when you blow the ending of “The Sixth Sense” for them
So how long should a spoiler be a spoiler? Take our poll and let us know.
