As the day of the premiere of Arrested Development season 4 approaches, I feel this needs to be addressed:
- If you decide to post/reblog anything that comes from the new season of Arrested Development this Sunday and anytime soon after that, please do tag your posts (i.e. “ad spoiler,” “Arrested development spoiler,” “ad season 4”, etc) for those who will want to blacklist it since they won’t have a chance to watch the premiere immediately / do not want to be spoiled.
- On the other hand, if you don’t want to be spoiled, there’s no guarantee that won’t be happening. This is tumblr after all (COME ON!) so you know there will be gifs and screenshots of the show minutes after it is released. My recommendation would be to stay away from the internet (facebook, tumblr, twitter) until you’re done watching all the episodes. That shouldn’t be a problem, because that’s what most of you are planning on doing anyways.
There you go, watch the show however you want, but please be considerate to others. Some of us have waited years for this to happen and would hate to have the experience ruined. Thanks!
This is pretty sound advice. Just so all of you know, my spoiler policy (which I’ve now updated) for new Arrested Development episodes is that I’m going to deal with them one week at a time. I know some folks are going to watch the episodes all in one go (I might be one of them!) but I want to be respectful of those who aren’t.
I’ll also be tagging things for those using Tumblr Savior:
- AD-S4 (similar to this season of Game of Thrones is tagged GoT-S3)
- Arrested Development Spoilers
Let me know if you have any questions about this - only a few days left!
