    You guys haven’t spoiled anything for me so far, so I’m not complaining – just making a comment.

    I don’t think it’s a valid argument to say that it’s okay to spoil shows because immediately afterward it was on Google News or NBC. I don’t think I’ve ever been to Google News and I try to avoid articles about my shows until after I’ve seen the most recent episode.

    Sam was right when she said that you have to be diligent to avoid spoilers. It’s a problem caused by DVR and Internet viewing and I don’t see it going away. I tend to watch shows with the most spoiler potential live or within the next couple of days.

    Just so you guys know, the correct pronunciation of Kamen Rider is “Kaw-men” Rider. Kaw, like the sound a crow makes.

    Will – I think it’s becoming harder and harder NOT to be spoiled on movie/tv/book plots due to the Internet’s easy access. It used to be when someone spoiled something you were usually within punching distance making retribution MUCH easier! 😉

    Tensaibaka – BWHAHAHAAHAHAH! Uhm. Sorry. Asking for us to pronounce something correctly is a spin of the wheel. Sometimes you win, mostly you lose!
