In this internet era, avoiding spoilers sometimes felt magical. Sure, people have their own definition of "spoilers", but everytime there's a new, popular show/movie/video game, your social media could turn into a mine field in a flash. Being careless, even just for a second, could cost your love to that particular show/movie/video game. The feeling became tenfold if the show/movie/video game relied on a plot-twist.
But, does spoilers really matter? Personally, yes. For me I want to enjoy things I've been waiting for (or I've missed) in a clean state so everything I see there will have more impact to me. Even a slightest information like synopsis (seriously) I consider as "spoilers" and could annoy me a little. The latest example I can give is Thor: Ragnarok. I tried my best to avoid any information regarding the movie and gave myself a restriction to just watch ONE trailer of it (or any Marvel movie). But turned out they spoil one of the big, green surprise in their trailer. Well, I do move on and still had fun with the movie, but imagine if I didn't watch the trailer and find the surprise by myself. That'll be one heck of an experience.
This post I make though, is a contradiction. By talking about spoilers and mentioning plot-twist in the paragraphs above, then you'll know this show will have that exact thing. At this point, you have two choice: 1) Stop reading this post then watch The Good Place (and maybe came back again and finish what you've started?), or 2) Keep reading, spoiled a little, and then watch The Good Place. Because really, it is a damn great show.
