Unplugging though is still a work in progress. Some networks guard the rights to view their content as jealously as Lucky guards his Lucky Charms.

I've come to realize that if you hang around on social media, spoilers will find their way to you. It doesn't even matter if you don't log on while the show is on. Your only real options are keep up or miss out. I don't think a year goes by where somebody doesn't try to explain there's kind of an unwritten rule to spoilers but who reads anymore right. People get excited about their favorite shows and social media provides a bit of instant gratification. It's kind of like all your friends are right there in the living room watching along with you. Unfortunately, the ones who aren't watching get carried along for the ride.
Solutions? I have none. If you want to avoid spoilers for your show all you can do is not use social media AT ALL until you've seen it. It's gotten so bad that you might have to boycott the web altogether as news sites tend to give away details even if they aren't full spoilers. You know it's gotten bad when there are actually apps out there dedicated to making your online experience spoiler free. So just tune out, stay off the web and hope to whatever deity you worship that there aren't any chatterboxes at work. Watch on, soldier.
