Buzz In: What's Your Annoying Spoiler Story?

Buzz In: What's Your Annoying Spoiler Story?

Since I'm trolling the Internet all day (and let's face it, most of the night, too), I've become accustomed to running into all kinds of spoilers. Just this week I've seen photos of The Office's Pam and Jim in their wedding garb, and today I read about a very juicy storyline on the upcoming season of Gossip Girl. I may be used to it, but it's still sometimes a letdown when a big surprise is ruined.

My most annoying spoiler moment happened when I was a teenager. My brother had just rented The Usual Suspects, and I hadn't seen it yet. I knew that the twist ending was supposedly amazing, and I repeatedly asked him not to ruin it for me. Brothers will be brothers, though, and in the end he revealed the ending over breakfast. To this day, I haven't seen the movie because I'm still kinda bitter about it.

What about you — do you have an annoying spoiler story?

A lot of American Shows get spoiled for me over here in NZ just coz we have to wait so long to see them. When Kris Allen won American Idol we were only 2 days behind but some stupid annoying radio DJ said something like "The person who wins has something in common with Lily Allen". I was so freakin mad at him.

Also, I record most of my favorite TV shows (like The Office, 30 Rock and House) and always end up (accidentally) reading Buzz's review BEFORE I get to see the show!

EVERY time you ask my grandma if she's seen a movie she responds with "Is that the one where...(insert spoiler here)"

Titanic. My sisters had seen it before me and they, no warning whatsoever, told me that Jack died in the end. Supposedly that was obvious and I should have already known. I was furious.

I have never had anything spoiled for me, that I didnt deserve to have spoiled for me. Usually if I have missed a show, I know that there are countless websites recapping it and they will either post the spoiler in the title or the picture will be the spoiler. I dont really mind.As for movies, if its still in the theater, no one should be talking about it to you, if its on DVD? you take that risk!

I had Fight Club and The Notebook both spoiled before I saw them. It only happened because it seemed like everyone around me was talking about each movie when they first came out.

Um, ok. Two spoilers I will say are the Harry Potter ones mentioned here! *sigh* I had I Am Legend spoiled when two friends heard I had rented it and was going to see it that night. They both looked at each other and go "It was so sad about the dog! I can't believe he had to kill his own dog!" and the other goes "Yeah, well, it was some kind of zombie-vampire thing because of the virus". Then they both looked at me and go "Oh, sorry. Don't worry, you will still like it. I loved it, it was shocking!" I was so angry and pissed because I spent most of the movie just waiting for it, instead of enjoying the movie itself.

I also had the Sixth Sense spoiled for me. I was watching an episode of Scrubs and if I remember correctly JD is hiding in a closet trying to keep from learning the end of Sixth sense because he hasn't seen it yet and Dr. Cox opens the door and just flat out tells him the big twist! I really can't fault Scrubs for that too much because the movie had been out forever by then and I just had not seen it yet.

I have to admit, I've brought on my worst spoiler moments myself — like by looking at Facebook after Top Chef or Project Runway are over on the East Coast but before they've aired on the West Coast. During the final season of The Wire, I was catching up on DVD, and I heard some interview that revealed a major plot point of the season I was watching at the time. That was annoying ... but totally my fault for listening. And I still loved it anyway.

Comedys that showcase their funniest moments in the trailers... for some reason, when I watch these jokes being told in the actual context of the movie, they just seem bored and overused. Of course, most of the other people seem to find it still hysterical--but I still can't seem to get past it to just enjoy it! Almost as if the punch-line was already spoiled. Boo.

DUDE! Everyone that hasn't seen Usual Suspects needs to see it. The ending sure is a big twist but the whole movie is AWESOME!

I actually don't mind spoilers - I can still enjoy a movie even if I know what will happen. For example, I know that The Sixth Sense is one of those that people think is ruined if you know the ending ahead of time, but I think that is only because the movie is not that good to begin with (in my opinion). On the other hand, a movie like The Usual Suspects is still an incredibly well made and entertaining movie even if you do know the ending.Anyhoo, my spoilers have been, just yesterday, Seven Pounds; Lost, Marissa dying on The O.C., multiple seasons of America's Next Top Model; I'm sure there are many more...

This past season finale of Grey's. I was watching something else and my sister just had to tell me who was hit by the bus. It still bugs me.

Hey, Buzz and ther other pertinent posters -- rent Usual Suspects anyway, even if you know the end. Still a super awesome movie, and you'll really appreciate the plotting and acting. It's honestly a better movie for repeat viewings...you can really appreciate all the buildup and details even more when you know what's coming.

My worst spoiler was also when I was reading HBP, shafiii. I got two spoilers - first, I overheard someone in class mention the fact that Dumbledore dies, and then a few nights later one of my friends had an away status that read "Snape kills Dumbledore." I was so mad!
