Did ‘HIMYM’ Screw Over Its Fans on Facebook Last Night?
'HIMYM' Facebook fans who signed onto the social media hub last night without having seen the finale were greeted with this in their timeline. The image of Cristin Milioti as the Mother right in front of them shortly after the episode's west coast airing.
This led to a fury of unsurprisingly upset fans commenting at how ‘HIMYM’s social media manager should be fired and crying in outrage over the so-called spoiler.
This all of course brings up the age-old question of when is something a spoiler on the web. Are the fans who signed onto Facebook without seeing the episode in the wrong — as they run the risk of it being spoiled by stepping onto social media?* Or should HIMYM have been more sensitive and given it at least a little bit more time before taking to their Facebook page?
*(I am of this opinion. It is up to the individual to avoid spoilers. If you step on any social media (Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr), you run the risk of finding out. Plus, this isn’t really a spoiler in terms of story because the only new thing we now know about her is what she looks like. Nothing happened with her really.) 
Did the marketing and publicity reward outweigh the fact that, no, not everyone watches TV live anymore? Was this an event big enough to warrant the immediate placement and reaction?

'Justified': Patton Oswalt's role, snake churches, and more season four spoilers.
I saw Graham Yost speak at the New York TV Festival tonight. He gave some new information about the upcoming season of ‘Jusitified’ for all those interested…
Yost says they’re shooting for six seasons of the show. Olyphant is only contracted for that much.
Patton Oswalt will be playing Constable Bob, a town constable who is said to be the “wanna be cop” to Raylan’s actual cop. He’s currently in one episode but it may develop into more.
The sixth episode is based on a chunk of Elmore Leonard’s recent Raylan Givens novel ‘Raylan.’
The first four episodes will deal with a snake-handling church. A few writers from the show went down to Harlan county to research these types of churches.
Apart from ‘Jusitifed’ Yost spoke about ‘Speed’ and ‘Hey Dude.’ Regarding ‘Speed’ he revealed the original title was ‘Minimum Speed’ and that Joss Whedon came up with the line, “Pop quiz, hot shot.”

Murphy also said that, “the second season is set in a completely different time period.”

“Official Spoiler Rules.”  Great work, team!

I don’t agree with all their rules but at least someone’s trying to establish them.

This is the real deal, people. ComicBookMovie has obtained a leaked early copy of ‘The Avengers’ story book for kids and it gives a surprising amount of detail on the first half of the film. 

Do not click this link  unless you really want to spoil the first half ‘The Avengers’. 

If there are water coolers and if there are offices, one person goes up and says, ‘Did you see Dexter?’ And they’re like, ‘No, shut up, I didn’t see it. Tell me in a year.’ This is not the way to have a conversation.
David Bianculli, on spoiler-culture. (via nprfreshair)

Ridley Scott, director of “Alien” and “Blade Runner,” returns to the genre he helped define. With PROMETHEUS, he creates a groundbreaking mythology, in which a team of explorers discover a clue to the origins of mankind on Earth, leading them on a thrilling journey to the darkest corners of the universe. There, they must fight a terrifying battle to save the future of the human race.
