"Q: You're often behind great CK episodes, but CK barely seems involved in Sacrifice. Any hope for this CK fan?

A: The O.D. was refreshingly Clark spoiler-free. Yes, he's in there. Doin' stuff. Lots of players on the board. Also doin' stuff."
I find this upsetting. I don't find a Clark mention annoying like he seems to think so. I don't see what's refreshing about a Clark spoiler-free O.D. The less Clark in the O.D., the less Clark in the epi. I'm not sure I could qualify one episode in S9 as Clark-centered. Now THAT would surely be refreshing.

It's so hard to interpret tone in 140 characters or less, isn't it? I took his answer to mean that he thinks the Clark parts of the story are better when they are experienced fresh from the episode, in the order and context that the writer intended, rather than having bits and pieces spilled ahead of time in the OD. Al Septien has expressed a similar sentiment when talking about spoilers. But I could be totally off.

Maybe you're right. :) But Al spoke about all spoilers while Brian talks specifically about Clark's. I'm not sure why spoilers about Clark are more harmful then spoilers about other characters. But I'm nitpicking. ODs are generally not to be trusted anyway.

I honestly think he means that the Clark spoilers are the good stuff, and that the good stuff should be played close to the vest. But maybe that's wishful thinking on my part, or maybe I'm giving him an undue benefit of the doubt because I like the way he writes Clark. :D

You're right about the OD's. They can be so far off sometimes!
