Discussion = spoilers?  
Maybe I missed here something but doesn't an Episode Discussion usually contains spoilers?


Or was there ever a discussion about an episode without spoilering the plot? *ponders* Is that even possible?

I've never seen an episode discussion without spoilers! I don't think it's possible, unless the comments all say: good ep, nice ep, without saying anything else. And that's just not possible!

That would be like saying "I watched it!". =D

Of course episode discussions contain spoilers, you can't discuss it properly otherwhise... Just do it under a cut and everything is okay in my book ;)

See, that's what we did as well and yet someone complained that he/she was spoiled even though we spelled it out that the post would contain spoilers. *headdesk*

Well I know some communities have 2 discussion threads. 1 with spoilers and 1 without.

I don't really understand it because the one without is really only saying, so and so hours till its on, ah, so exciting. I'm watching it now! Aaaw its over. Etc. Pointless.

*lol* I know these. It's terrible interesting to read who watched what when and how they are feeling RIGHT NOW. =D

But sometimes people need to share that stuff with others. God knows why...

Even without saying "this or that happened, OMG, my fave character died/got married/whatever" it spoils something.
Your emotions, your reactions, you being happy/really sad/angry ... it gives something away and in case I know you and what/who do you like ... it might give something away.
So in my book almost EVERYTHING can be a spoiler.

I couldn't have said it better. :)

Spoilers go under a cut and if you don't want to read them, don't click. It's as easy as that. You can't complain if it's spelled out before the cut.

sure you can. If you're discussing the technical aspects of the episode not the content.

for example:

"I really enjoyed how the lighting of the episode highlighted what was going on." - I would say that for the second to last episode of House, and I think that statement is pretty spoiler free.

another example:

"I loved the fast past editing that was very in sync with music, it really bad that scene come to life for me" - I'm thing of the second to last ep of Atlantis here. I also enjoyed how it was lit, and the overall thematic mood to the episode. Beyond the content I enjoyed it for it's cinematic value.

It's hard to do for, say, individual scenes cause then you'd have to give away content, but if your doing the overall show, I think you can discuss the lighting, or the soundtrack, the directing, or editing with out giving out spoilers. But that's just me.

Re-reading that comment, I spotted like 4 other typos. sometimes I type faster than I think. :( I also hit post before my brain fully reaches the end of the sentence.

In this specific case it was a episode and we stated before the cut that there would be spoilers in the post and comments. :/

That someone really should have read it. *phew*

Your way could be used for the end of a season... hmm, I think we might do that. *squishes* Thanks a bunch for that!!!

see now there was your problem. You expected people to read. Why should they do that, when bitching about it afterwards is oh so much more fun!
