    Spoiled or Cold Turkey?

    To be spoiled or not to be...that is the question! Given the time differential and the networks delaying the broadcasts, how are you going to watch Worlds?

    I think I will have to seek out the Spoiler folder for the QR's, and for skate orders, however, I am going to "try" to be patient (not one of my strong points!) and watch the rest "unspoiled."

    Definitely SPOILED. I have to know the results as soon as they are available so that I can really enjoy watching the programs on TV stress-free. :D

    I'm going to be SPOILED for sure, there's no way that I could remain unspoiled for this.

    Unspoiled. It's much more exciting that way. Except for the QR and the CDs. I don't need to be surprised for that.

    Joining the other Laura in being SPOILED. I was at Worlds and GPF, and nearly died, especially after the mens event. On the other hand, I knew that Evgeni had the better skate, so it wasn't so bad.

    When I heard he'd skated badly at Euros, I almost didn't watch, but it really wasn't as horrifying as I feared it would be.

    But, yeah, spoiled is the way to go. My fingernails can't take it any other way....

    It depends on the competition. I HAVE to know about the Men's before hand - as soon as possible from the boards - because I get too nervous for my favourites to watch without knowing. (And no, I won't say who my favourites are.)

    When my favourites aren't in contention, I'll just wait for CBC

    Before Golden Skate, the media would usually be my way of finding out beforehand, but really I like to watch the entire event without knowing - it's more fun that way. Sometimes I end up "lurking" here especially if I have missed a discipline or somehow messed up my vcr taping. I am going to try and either watch the whole thing or tape it. I don't want to know ahead of time.

    Unspoiled! I did it for Euros, I can do it for Worlds. (It's shown live on Eurosport, but I'm away at uni so I don't get eurosport here. We get it at home, so my mum records it all for me and I watch it asap when I can.) I didn't get to see Euros (or find out the results) till about 2 weeks after! :o It wasn't fun, I really wanted to watch it. It's so much better when you don't know what's gonna happen though.

    Hopefully I won't have to wait more than 1 week to watch Worlds, but it's still going to be horrible waiting! But even so, I don't want to be spoiled.

    spoiled or unspoiled

    two things:

    1, those of you who said spoiled...have you ever been to a psychic

    2, Are US viewers getting the QR at all?????? probably not, just saw it mentioned and thought I'd ask

    8 more days, folks....just 8 more days!

    No Sarah, I've never been to a psychic. Nor have I been to a psychiatrist; although, come to think of it, I probably should have. Anyway, I'm a spoilers folder junkie. Us worry-wart, nervous-Nelly types are far too apprehensive to wait for a delayed broadcast. For the sake of our mental health our anxieties must be relieved as soon as possible.

    I've even been known to "shop around", going from one skating site to another, searching for the most up to the minute reports.

    Probably spoiled...I'll try to go unspoiled, but everything is always aired on TV later after the competition is over, so I'll end up on GoldenSkate and can't resist clicking on the results threads. It's actually somewhat better to be spoiled, because if you find out there was an upset (à la the mens title at GPF and Euros), it makes you want to watch the coverage (or download every possible online clip you can find, if you're me ) even more

    going spoiled at least for the SPs... if the results of those are exciting. i'll go unspoiled

    i remember last years worlds, i went unspoiled for the FD because if B&K were to win, i wanted to see it for myself without knowing, and i almost went NUTS because it wasn't on until like 2 days later in the states!
