'Suits' on USA HD - Page 7

post #181 of 226
Even with the "once it has aired it is fair game" rule, I try to wait until the next day if I am talking specific points... usually if I post on air-night I'll spoiler stuff for people who DVRed that night and haven't had time to watch yet... but I figure the next day all bets are off.

I agree, I'm purposely vague on the night of a show, especially if west coasters have not seen it, but the truth is people should not come to a thread if they don't want to know. Next day all bets are off. There have been threads I've not visited for 9 or 10 months when I didn't watch all the episodes on my dvr, after I catch up I skim all the back posts.

I was looking at the Longmire thread the other day and someone made a comment about The Glades that spoiled it for me. I purposely did not look at The Glades thread because I had not watched the program yet. But someone had to blab the ending in a different thread,

As has been mentioned before many times, once the program has aired, it's fair game to talk about it. I understand the "spoiler" was in a different thread, but if you've seen as many TV shows over the years as I have, it's not like you couldn't see either the Glades or the Longmire endings coming.

I respectfully disagree. I frequently see a "spoiler alert" warning, even when in the pertinent thread.

That doesn't mean it's required, just someone not sure of the forum policy.

I agree with BoilerJim. Those in the wrong, it seems to me, are those posters who whine about "Spoilers!" concerning material that has been posted within the rules. Those who are offended, should either live with it or move on. In any event they shouldn't expose their ignorance by complaining where no complaint is due. Many, perhaps most, of us here are unwilling to pander to Spoilerphobia. Spoilers, real spoilers that is, should be scrupulously avoided. Indeed, most posters do a good job of doing so. But complaints about discussion of already aired material are out of line, it seems to me.

Its just some consideration for those who havn't reached the episode concerned. No harm in throwing in a spoiler alert, at the start of your post.

Using that logic... every post would have to have one... because at any given time, someone might not be current with the latest aired episode.... and if you argue all posts need spoiler alerts, then really none of them need it... because we are back to the notion that one should assume people are talking about already aired episodes.

The only things that really need spoilers are when talking about unaired episodes that no one has had a chance to see.

My thesis was that complaining about not using a spoiler alert, despite the decision not to do so being entirely within the rules, is out of line. Think about it.

+1! See above. smile.gif

Alright Alright guys. Didnt expect a can of worms to be opened.

HDMe2 Your point is very valid. Ill take it back I guess.
post #192 of 226
I've occasionally looked at these posts without seeing the latest ep first. That's the risk I take. I don't believe spoiler tags are needed after all the time zones have seen the latest episode.
post #193 of 226
I like it better when Harvey and Jessica are aligned. Season started kinda slowly for me, but it's definitely picking up speed now. Not sure how I feel about the cat court case. Would a major firm really take time out of its work day for that nonsense? Only thing that saved it for me was I love Lewis as a character. Ditto for Nigel. Those two play well off of one another.

No harm done... Like I said earlier... when I post on the night a show airs, I spoiler stuff just in case people DVR and haven't watched that night... I also take a step extra and will spoiler my own conjectures just in case my guess turns out to be right... but a day or two later I figure is fair game to not spoiler the most recent episode. Otherwise, there's really no line to draw in the sand where it would ever be safe.

I DVR a lot of stuff, for example, and sometimes don't watch this week until next week... but I don't expect the world to stop before I catch up smile.gif So I either avoid the threads that week OR go ahead and jump in knowing that I might see something that "spoils" the episode I have on the DVR.

Alright, fair enough. You sound like a lawyer. Or maybe suits has gotten to you smile.gif

LOL. Bad guess then. Just your writing style and the argument you made was what you expect from a lawyer or a judge even. Take it as a compliment smile.gif
post #199 of 226
Thanks... meanwhile, back at the show!

They tied a lot of season-long things together last night... things I hadn't even thought to tie together even... also Louis got to show some humanity again. I'm trying to figure out... based on the last couple of episodes they have been making Rachel into Louis' Donna... except they also seem to be setting up the plot for her to become a lawyer... so not sure how long that Louis/Rachel show will continue.

Next week will either be fun OR anti-climactic after all the stuff they did this week.

Interesting idea you have there. Louis' Donna

Twists inside of twists this season on Suits. Interesting ending and set up for the Summer finale next week. Really like the Harvey /Louis thing at the end.

Good episode last night, especially at the beginning. smile.gif
post #203 of 226
I like the episodes where Louis gets to do something right and gets recognized for it. The other stuff is fun too, but he kind of does need affirmation from time to time and Harvey comes across as a bully if he doesn't sometimes acknowledge that Louis is good at what he does too.

Also... I kind of want one of those coffee mugs now smile.gif

Sorry that is BS. Someone shouldn't spoil a show in another show's thread. With that logic, then every movie and Tv show that has aired is fair game. My best friend knows I haven't watched some shows that he has watched and vice versa. We give general info about the shows, but do not discuss any specific plots. Case in point. I have not watched Burn Notice this year. I will eventually get around to it. If someone mentioned that Michael died in this thread, then I would be pretty disappointed.


As for talking about a show after it has aired in its own thread, then it is fair game. You shouldn't come to a thread after a show has aired that you have not seen and expect no one to discuss said show.



I thought Suits was going to peter out towards the end here, but it is still running strong to the finale. I think I might have placed this last episode as one of the top two or three of the summer season. I guess if it is going to jump the shark then it will be next year.smile.gif

If posting about one unaired show in the thread for another Is BS and should be a spoiler, convince the moderators that the rule should be changed. None of the rest of can do anything about it and many, if not most of us including me, think the rule is just fine as it is. In the meantime, reread BoilerJim's post and . . . well, you get it.

I thought the forum rule was that you were not supposed to post about a show in another show's thread.

The conventional wisdom seems to be that any commentary about any TV show that has aired is fair game. If there is a further limitation that such a comment is nevertheless prohibited in another thread, I never heard of it until you raised the issue. If such a limitation exists please give us a reference to it in the rules of the Forum.

All I know is that about 1 year ago I was chastised for making an offhand comment about a thread in another thread. I don't recall if it was made by a moderator or just another poster.

In the era before there were DVRs, or even VCRs, that CW would probably hold true. But nowadays people have different schedules when they watch a program and to be reading a Suits thread and then seeing details about another show completely unrelated to Suits is just obnoxious. It's just common sense and courtesy, if the thread is about Suits then that's what should be discussed and not have details about Boardwalk Empire or Dexter be discussed.

I don't understand why people would do that anyway, a little common sense and common courtesy goes a long ways, and as far as "the rules" of the Forum I doubt you're going to find any such reference, its just a social pact that the members of the Forum have felt is the right thing to do. To do otherwise could result in open "spoiler warfare" with cross-posting happening all over the place, 'since you spoiled my show then I'm going to spoil your show' and that's just anarchy.

Another thing to consider, if such a policy were allowed you can bet the site views would go down further than they already have as people would avoid the site for fear of having one of the shows spoiled, and if it came right down to it I'd bet the site owners would actively enforce such a policy(no cross-posting) when it became evident that it was hurting their bottom line.
