How To Avoid Spoilers For Everything Forever

I am a huge spoiler baby. For me, trailers are spoilers. Conversations about trailers are spoilers. Posters are spoilers. The cast list is spoilers. I hate watching anything spoiled. Also, I love the intellectual challenge of avoiding spoilers.

In this video, I’ll divulge my 15 best spoiler-avoiding secrets to you. And though it should go without saying, I’ll say it anyway: This video contains no spoilers for anything.

This post, however, contains one spoiler, and it’s about the video I made: The video gets pretty wild toward the end.

I realise that uploading a video onto the internet in which I boast about delaying my viewing of the sequel to Avengers: Infinity War just so I can savour the challenge of avoiding spoilers for a week is tempting fate. Inevitably, it will result in a couple of jerks cramming my various inboxes with the tersest spoilers they can think of.

Of course, I explain a way around that, too. (In summary, it’s this: I’m taking the day off. I wrote this post a day in advance. My phone is in a shoebox in my hall closet. You’re talking to a ghost right now. Just presume I’m off somewhere reading a book.)


  • This series should be called, “Tim Rogers: (How to) Born Stupid And Stay Stupid” or Tim Rogers: BSASS

    I say this not as a dig at Tim but as a fan of his elocution and would love to have more of this or any series Tim produces. Where do I subscribe?

  • I’m never quite sure if this guys videos are serious or not but I always end up enjoying them.

  • Tim you’re the reason I continue to read Kotaku. Always quality content. This + your translation of FF7 have been highlights for me recently.

  • I never read reviews for films/games/music until after I’ve experienced them. Partly to do with spoilers but mainly to do with just experiencing things without the opinions of others colouring things.
    Once you get to a certain age you kinda know what you’re gonna like or dislike or what is suited to you. Throw in a few left field choices and things stay exciting!
