Don’t Spoil Me, Bro

It’s trickier than ever to determine what’s safe to include in a TV show review, right? Should we keep things super general, even when talking about relatively old episodes of a show, because so many people are going back and binge-watching series they missed? Or should we assume that folks wouldn’t be browsing a TV show’s SideReel page if they’re not caught up on the latest happenings?

We have had a tool in place for SideReelers to mark other users’ reviews as being too spoilery, but now we’re letting reviewers self-identify as plot divulgers. If you want to share your outrage over an out-of-nowhere murder or your excitement about a plot twist, but you’re worried that you might spoil the fun for fellow fans, just check the new box before posting your review:

Thanks for keeping us in the dark, Paulette!
