Spoil or Tease: How is Geek Force Five Doing on LOST Coverage?
As production on the fifth season of Lost ramps up this month, plenty of information is leaking out about exactly how The Powers That Be are going to pick things up from where they left off at the end of season four. And that’s got me wondering how Geek Force Five is doing when it comes to Lost coverage.
There is a fine line between “spoiler” and “teaser,” as far as I’m concerned. I always try to stick to the “teaser” side of that line, and to only veer into “spoiler” territory in articles that continue below the fold, thereby giving those who wish to stay pure a fair warning. But I think the problem with that fine line between “spoiler” and “teaser” is that individual fans draw it at different points in the sand. What I consider a “teaser” may be very much a “spoiler” to you.
So, I ask you: how am I doing? Have I spoiled things for you in the past? And, if so, what can I do to keep from spoiling you in the future? Or, have I struck just the right balance? In your opinion, what is the difference between a “spoiler” and a “teaser”? Let me know.
In the meantime, here’s a tease for you: DarkUFO’s spoilers site is reporting that we will see another unexpected visitor from season two in the upcoming season, and that “the overturned fuselage of a small Cessna-sized plane” will make an appearance in an early episode as well. Make of that what you will.
