Do we really want spoilers?

I’ve been thinking a bit about spoilers, and the site Spoilerfix in particular. For those of you who don’t know, Spoilerfix provides unconfirmed information of upcoming Lost episodes. The information can be anything from what the episode will be about to new actors coming on the show.

The thing is, do we really want to know what is about to happen before we see it?
Sure, the line between fan speculation based on what is seen on the show and pretty solid information on upcoming shows might be a bit blurred. But to use the terms someone else did in some article this week, if Lost and the speculations and theories is like a video game, wouldn’t sites like Spoilerfix be cheating?

Don’t get me wrong, I’m sure the people behind Spoilerfix are doing a great job. But what’s the fun about making up and discussing theories related to Lost and then already know what the next episode will be about before it even airs?

    You may be right, but it can also add some fun to the game, whereas, all the spoilers we hear aren’t always true, therefore, we may expect something, and then something else happens instead throwing us for a loop. And I don’t know about you, but when we have to wait like 3 weeks for a new episode, I would like to know a lil bit about what’s going on and just reading those can help keep the Lost-withdrawl symptoms down to a minimum you know what I’m saying?

    Yeah, I understand what you’re saying SlackerEko.

    Personaly though, even if there is a long wait until the next episode, I prefer waiting to know what will happen (even if the spoilers might be off, I don’t want to risk it). That way the suspense builds up and I reaaaally look forward to the upcoming episode.
