But then social media steps in. When I lived in California, I had to avoid Facebook and Twitter on Sunday nights so spoilers about my favorite shows didn’t show up in the 3-hour time difference.
And then there’s Sharknado. Blessed with a compelling title, it drew me in more than, let’s say, Dinocroc vs. Supergator. I didn’t get to see it on first airing and I therefore missed out on the true Sharknado experience as a result. But that didn’t stop me from watching it.
