My girls and I have gotten totally hooked on the Gilmore Girls. The thing is that it is in its seventh season - but we just finished season 1! The biggest issue is that whenever we tell people that we're watching it and that we love it, they start telling us things about it that we don't want to know yet. That is part of enjoying the show - the finding things out - as they happen. I don't get it. Why do people do this? I am always sure to tell them quickly before they can talk that we have just started the series. I want to scream - "HEY SPOILERS! Put a lid on it!" My girls have encountered an obnoxious friend who seems to enjoy that he upsets them by telling them random things about the show. It isn't funny.
And then the other day I am just reading a blog that I have on my Google Reader, and the author is writing about Harry Potter and why her family reads it when so many other Christians have chosen to abstain. It was very interesting up to the point where she discusses how her son who enjoys the movie first and then the book was upset that she revealed that a certain person had died in the book she was reading (before the movie was released so he didn't know yet) - and she just names the character! Evidently she learned nothing from the episode with her son.
When someone is watching a movie or reading a book - if you tell them what is going to happen - what's the use in reading or watching anymore! Ugh! It would be like telling someone what you got them for Christmas while it is still wrapped up in the paper under the tree. Don't do it! Spoilers cease and desist!
