As many should know, yesterday was released the first episode of the season 6 of the amazing and now mythic TV show Game of Thrones.
I love that show, which is very strange because usually I hate blood, violence and unjustified murdering. I think there is in GOT a dimension of a fantastic world that made me realize how fictive the story is and so I don’t make the connection with our real world, which I do usually.
One thing, “not GOT watchers” must be aware of is aboutthe spoilers. In every TV shows it is really annoying to be spoiled but I think that in GOT it is even more annoying because of the tremendous amount of killings in every episode, and often there are main character’s killings. A spoiler can destroy the watching of an entire episode and the watching experience has suddenly a huge lack of interest.
For that reason, since I began to watch the show, my biggest fear is to be spoiled as many people on the Internet don’t have a minimum of respect for their peers that haven’t watch the episode yet. Twitter, Facebook, Youtube and other Internet social media or article are avoided like the devil between the moment the episode is released and the moment I watch it. I’ve even found an app SPOILER-FREE where you can select some words and the app will automatically erase any publication or article containing these words. It is a little miracle for all spoilers’ victims.
I haven’t see the new episode yet, I have exactly 24 hours of intense “avoiding spoilers” stress before enjoying my episode.
UPDATE : The ironical thing is that even with all these efforts of avoiding spoilers and controlling my social media contents, when I opened my snapchat while writing this post – because I thought I was kind of safe on this app) – I saw that in one of my (disrespectful) friends’ snapchat story there were two pictures of a spoiling moment. I’ve been spoiled… and then deeply inside of me I cried!!!
