Tivo is wonderful because it is so easy to record a show and then watch it later whenever you want. There is a down side to that though – sometimes it is really hard to live in a spoiler free world.
I still have not watched the last two episodes of Sex and The City. I had every intention of watching them on Sunday, but I never got a chance the other night. Yesterday morning, I flipped on the Today show so that I could check the weather – and Matt Lauer was talking about the show! Ack! I very quickly turned it off. I was cautious as I read blogs yesterday so that I would not be tipped off as to what is waiting for me on the Tivo.
You would think I would learn, right? No, not me. I recorded Average Joe last night. I started to watch it, but decided to wait until tonight instead. No problem, I can avoid being tipped off about the show, right? Wrong. What did I do this morning? I turned on Today to check the weather. Matt Lauer pops on to the TV screen, telling me all about a key event that happened in last night’s episode of Average Joe. Gah! I turned it off, but it was too late. I heard his sentence, and now I know part of the ending of the episode before I have even had a chance to watch it.
I’ve learned my lesson now. I can check the weather by looking out the window – I’m tired of Matt Lauer spoiling everything for me. Doesn’t he know he really should give a spoiler warning first?!?
Speaking of Average Joe, I have to admit that I screamed like a schoolgirl last week when I learned that Adam, the “Average Joe” that we all adored from the first series, will be back – and this time HE gets to pick the woman! I’m totally psyched. Adam rocks.
On a side note – please don’t post the spoilers in my comments! Eep! I still haven’t watched either show, so I’m trying to stay as spoiler free as possible. Matt Lauer has already ruined that somewhat for me, don’t tell me the rest! *grin*
