Not like we are talking a movie review. This is a weekly tv show that is gonna be on this weekend. Why totally ruin some of the shows biggest moments?

One could say...dont read it if you want to...enjoy the show. But once its out there people act like idiots and post it over and over so you eventually just bump into it.

I couldnt just...watch the wire to see what happened with Omar in season 5...someone posted what happened early online with no warning. I cant watch breaking bad to see how the Gus/Walt issue is resolved. I have to see a gotdamn picture in a topic here that ruined it and had me just wondering how it would happen.

Im just scrolling through this topic and right in a post is...what supposedly happens next episode. Its under a tad of red text calling it a spoiler but...why?

For one....the key part was in my field of vision same time the warning was and certian words just stand out...like "Finally dies".

And second...even if it isnt true now im waiting the whole show for it to happen.

I cant just watch it unfold however it happens.

Friend of mine kills me with that. Whenever we are watching a show hes already seen he cant wait to spoil things. Even if its not on purpose(sometimes it isnt) its not hard to avoid. Who walks in and says "Oh is this the one ___ gets killed?" knowing we have not seen the show?

People who spoil shows/movies should be slowly lowered into hot oil knee deep. Not killed. But...allowed to burn a bit.

were-you-really-in-that-much-suspense-as-to-what-was-going-to-happen-next? ...Dale-dying-was-like-an-annoyiing-parent-getting-cut-out-the-show.

What may or may not happen if game of thrones gets to a season 5 isnt as bothersome as....."This happens next episode...huuuuuuuuuuge spoiler" shit.

Never know how they tell a story based on books. OR comic books for that matter. But when you know what next episodes issues are....and just...tell people...I dont see the reason.

I guess you cant even talk about current episodes of tv shows these days. People dying to ruin next week because they can.

NO, people should not reveal spoilers without warning, but seriously, if spoilers bother you that much you can't participate in these type of discussions because they are too easy to spoil things in.

Actually based on pages of threads on shows like Lost it's pretty easy. Wait till the episode has aired. Or just leave a link without text.

It's not rocket science.

kids can be tougher and more resilient then you think. think about children who grow up in warn torn countries in africa. there was a story last year about a kid who was actually one of those child soldiers. he killed people and i'm sure committed other atrocities. he was later separated from the army he was in and got an education, ended up in north america and has turned his life around.

I'm talking about the actor being able to portray the gamut of emotions and phases Carl has in the comic. Besides, that soldier kid wasn't fighting zombies.

I dont consider talking about anything already shown a spoiler in a topic like this. But something that ruins future episodes? Eh....

Yeah same here. I don't understand how that zombie had the strength to rip open a chest cavity though.

Yeah, that seemed kind of flimsy. People have been shown kicking zombies out of the way, and wresting themselves from zombies' grips, yet this zombie was strong enough to very quickly rip Dale's torso open.

I was just thinking about the same thing. I can't remember if he escaped that zombie's grasp, or Carl just freaked out and froze when the zombie pulled his leg out of the mud, then Carl pulled his head out of his ass and ran away...?

It's easy to not spoil something.

People that post spoilers create an environment in which fans who want to be taken for a ride, discuss, and speculate on the show, get the shaft.

Putting something in white text isn't difficult.

I dont think the zombie had a great grab on his (carl) leg and that's how he got away, but with dale, the zombie was laying on top of him. Remember when rick (in the last episode) shot the zombie and it fell on top of him and he couldn't get it off of him in time before the other two zombies rolled up. Dale was pushing on his shoulders and face to keep it from biting him, and it allowed the zombie to just start ripping into the stomach.
