From this Vulture article on “purge-watching” (which I also do):

“The most extreme example of this phenomenon is when someone skips the show altogether and just reads the Wikipedia page.”

I do this with shows I want to know the ending of but can’t stand to watch anymore (Nip/Tuck, why’d you have to become so terrible?), but also shows I never intend to actually see.

I read this and was genuinely surprised that others do it too. Like the non-sarcastic version of this gif.

Do other people also secretly sort of like minor spoilers, too?

What behaviors did you think were all your own but turned out not to be?
