There are already spoilers out there for next season?! I don't avoid spoilers, they help me brace myself! :) Honestly, if I didn't find out what was going to happen in advance, and give myself some time to process it, all my reviews would probably be screaming rants about the Clana, and how they're destroying the legend of Superman, one episode at a time. :)

What I do avoid is the spoiler thread on TWoP. Whenever I read it, it's full of doom and gloom and predictions that are based on the worst possible interpretation of the available spoiler info, and I always get super upset over the possibility of things that mostly never happen. I just can't take it, so I stay away.

I also hunt down and watch any clips I can find in advance of the show, which I know a lot of people, even those who read all the spoilers, don't like to do.

I couldn't agree with you more about TW and MR, as I'm sure you already know. :) I think they rise above the writing, episode after episode, and I'm always torn between wanting the show to continue, so I can watch them every week, and wanting it to end, so they can go on to bigger and better things.

I don't think any comment moratorium extends to you. :) I was thinking the comm was just suffering from lack of participation, as many comms do. In any case, you know I'll be there, whatever you decide! :)

Per your comment below, I've actually been wanting to re-watch "Hero," myself. I vote S7 quite a bit better than S6, because I've reasonably enjoyed rewatching most of the eps this year. I've even gone back to rewatching to do the timeline writeups. (Of course, the lack of availability of decent transcripts now is also a factor). Whereas, eps like "Static," "Trespass" and "Promise"...just can't do it.

The spoilers I was referring to is that KK won't be in the final 5 eps of THIS season, and only in the first THIRD of next season. I'm having fantasies of a Clana breakup...for good...

Our idiosyncrasies are funny, aren't they. I hang on the TWOP spoiler thread all the time, although I both know what you mean and agree. However, though very occasionally I will watch the trailers and DCs, I generally prefer not to actually see the scenes until they air.

What drives me absolutely nutso is the rare occasions on which our ep broadcast has been delayed for basketball games or something similar, and everyone else in fandom has already seen and is discussing. No way could I ever just stop watching SV, no matter how bad it got--I just couldn't bear not to know what was happening (however nonsensical). As long as MR and TW (or even just TW) are on the screen, I'm so there!

It'll be a sad day, IMO, when the show finally ends, because we'll lose the thrill of getting something, anything, new, as well as the hope that things'll improve. I'm delighted we have an eighth season, and I hope desperately that TPTB give it their all and make it a good one.

But, yeah, I'd love to see the guys in more stuff. I'm still hoping for that version of the "Odd Couple"...

I had heard that about KK's contract. I just hope that if they do FINALLY end this relationship, they handle it correctly. I don't want a Superman who only loves Lois because he couldn't have the true love of his life, Lana Lang. *gags*

I'm really hoping that they will promote this season as the final one, commit to ending it, and give us that awesome final arc they're always bragging about. This show still has such great potential, y'know?
