You guys are true gentlemen. Your spoiler alert notification system is incredibly robust:
48:05 5-sec warning given
48:18 countdown to 5 ends
49:20 warbling song
48:50 Red implores audience to pause and watch show
49:00 Ivan insults/shames audience to pause and watch show
49:20 “Spoiler Alert!” 3x
49:25 Finally: spoiler revealed!
And your warning was effective (for me)! Although, there is a meta-issue here: knowing there is a spoiler IS A SPOILER. Perhaps, there could be some “casual” way of informing the audience? “You know, no big deal, but, hey just kind of pause and watch the show first… We don’t really care either way…” But do that for same 2 minutes as you would have via the impassioned appeal route.
Anyway thanks for this podcast. I -never- would’ve watched the show without it. The NBC publicity for it IN NO WAY prepared me for the excellence that was contained therein (even though any show with White-Hair Ted Danson is always going to be good)
