To Spoil or Not to Spoil: THAT is the Question

We took a poll in the past and found out that about 75% of the people that read our Episode II news read all of the spoilers. I can understand both sides of the argument and remember a time when I said I wasn't even going to watch the Episode I trailer, then I broke down and watched it a hundred times. Then there was that whole script thing, where I stumbled on a copy of the script in January of 1999, six months before the movie was going to come out. What do I do?

I remember sitting in front of my computer, wondering if I should push play on the trailer. I remember sitting on the bed with that red folder filled with wonders of the first return to Star Wars in decades. I couldn't resist.

Since them I haven't hardly missed a day of my Daily Dose of Star Wars, looking forward to the next email from someone in the know, someone who was there when it was filmed or saw it being made on the computer screen in front of them. The postcard from the person that did set construction or the latest round or spy photos and renderings. I can't resist.

And so for those of you that enjoy spoilers as much as I do, TFN has been serving up plenty and we've got more coming soon. While we certainly don't know much of the depth to Episode II yet, little reports cause a stir online and in our hearts as we look forward to the next chapter of Star Wars.

I think the ride is just as important as the destination itself. You see, we're in a unique time for fans, one that will never exist again. We are waiting for the last two Star Wars movies ever to be made. Sure, someday people may be anticipating the next big book like Harry Potter or excited about the latest Playstation 4 game, but for this moment we've still got the movies. To me, part of the excitment is knowing just a bit more about the next movie. I want to know, so spoil me rotten.

On the other hand, I have great respect for those that don't want to be spoiled, and I hope you give them the respect they deserve. I've been down that road and couldn't resist, but they are and want to head into the movies like we did the first - unprepared for what George would unleash upon us next. Maybe that's a good way to be, I've often wondered what I would have thought of Episode I had I not seen it all so to speak beforehand.

But that is a question I will not ever be able to answer, since I remain a prequel spoiler lover. And for all of us that is the question - To Spoil or not to Spoil. The choice is yours.
