I knew it wouldn’t be easy, but I did it.
Far too often my favorite shows are ruined for me. I knew about the Red Wedding massacre before it went down on Game of Thrones. I had the death of several Walking Dead characters spilled to me in advance.
One of the biggest challenges with those shows is that I worked really early hours, and couldn’t stay up to watch. So by the time I was able to see them, any surprise was inevitably ruined. It never takes much, just a random tweet or headline. Working in the media business, I can’t just unplug.
