I was cruising the internets last night looking for some ideas on how to make the gun that Rose Tyler carries when she comes back from the alternate universe. I’m working on my cosplay outfit for Philly ComicCon next summer. Anyway, I came across this forum and scrolled through the chats, not really paying much attention, wanting to see pictures of her futuristic weapon when I saw several posts lambasting the original poster for not warning about spoilers. I understand that folks who haven’t seen a TV show or movie won’t want to know what’s happening before they see it.
But just how long do we give them to see it?
This particular forum I ran across was posted almost a full year AFTER Rose shows up back in our time helping to fight the Daleks.
Sorry, but if you haven’t seen that season yet and it’s been out a year, then you deserve to be spoiled.
If it’s only been a few weeks, then of course don’t say anything. But what is the rule? Do we give people a few days, weeks, months to watch a particular TV show or movie before posting or speaking of it?
