Why Spoilers Are Awesome

All of this discussion about spoilers (especially the fabled "episode 18") on sugah66's journal are making me twitchy and in need of finding out what happens in upcoming eps of CSI: NY.  She's spoiler free, but I'm a spoiler WHORE, and here is why:

1) I'm a curious person.  I hate not knowing, being in the dark.  If somone knows something, I wanna know.  (why yes, I do love gossip!  Have any dirt?) Knowledge is power!

2) Hearing news is a good pick-me-up during the weekends, or during rerun weeks when you're bored out of your skull.

3) If it's something bad, I need to know as soon as possible so that I have adequate time to stomp and rage about it and otherwise prepare myself for when I actually see it happen.  Reduces the stress level to take it in pieces - hear about it first, see it later.  I don't do well with shock.  I don't like being shocked.

4) If it's something good, I want as much time as possible to daydream ways it might unfold on screen.  Good tidbits will provide me with endless pre-sleep thoughts that help lull me into dreamland.  Knowing something good is coming, for example a GSR tidbit, also helps when you're suffering through weeks of boring episode going "when was the last time they talked to each other?  Did they break up when I wasn't paying attention?" 

5) Even if the promised good doesn't occur, and I'm disappointed, knowing that they were at least considering it makes me happy in the long run.  It provides me with an image for my daydreams that I wouldn't have had otherwise.  It's not unlike reading a snippet of fan fic. 

I get behind on my spoilers with this show, because the only place I know where to get them is Talk CSI and there are just too many pages of discussion on the spoiler thread, most of them complaining about Lindsay.  I don't know if I feel up to braving that just now.  In conclusion, I am off to go scout this awesome-sounding place on tv.com

*10 minutes later* ASDJFLASDJFLKSD!!  Oh man, this place is officially my new spoiler source for CSI NY.  No scrolling through 10 pages of Lindsay hate looking for the tidbits; here they're all nicely grouped together on the first page of posts. 

And now that I know all the pertinent details of upcoming episodes (a word here which means "pertaining to Danny and/or Lindsay"), it is time to flail with delight.  You may click this link and read them yourself.  I would discuss my reactions to them, but I'm not up to that yet.    Oh my.  I feel faint.

I told you, you need to sign up at DLC! All Danny/Lindsay shippers, and there are plenty of spoilers in the spoiler thread, if you're into that sort of thing. :P And if you DO sign up at tv.com, just be considerate of those of us, like me, who are SF. Also, join the M&Ms club - it's the D/L thread.

I know, I know. I promise, I'm going to check it out. [it somehow completely slipped my mind this morning when I was looking for spoiler sites]
I'm just not a big message board person. I belong to three at the moment and it's about all I can handle - I rarely post, preferring to keep my thoughts where I can read them again (i.e., here, where they can be as loooong as I want) and I don't usually feel like just discussing characters and the like during downtime. I waste enough time on the internet already without needing *more* distractions.

I'm only on two message boards - DLC and tv.com - and that's enough for me. Most of the time I waste on the internet is spent at either of those - and LJ. Because I love discussing the characters, speculating about what could happen or even what's already happened, and debating with other people about what was good or what was awful in an episode. Basically because where I work, I'm the sole employee, the only person I know out here is my sister, and I rarely see her. So this is my only form of human interaction.

Also, I'm just obsessed with this show.

omg that link you gave is only page 1 of 27. I can't read through all that...(lol - too lazy!)

Can you just sum it up? Oh by the way, did you happen to come across any Stella spoiler? *melovestella:)*

I caved and read the spoilers and now I can't sit still with excitement! Lol. Anyway, feel free to join my Danny/Lindsay community here on LJ if you want a haven away from Lindsay-haters. :) messermontana
