Every week I read up about what's coming up in the story lines for the characters in the TV soaps that I watch.
Why would you want to spoil your fun? Why can't you wait till the actual episode so you can discover what's coming up then?
Because I like to know in advance. That's just me.
How are you going to experience anything new when you know what's coming up in advance?
Even though I read up on the episodes, the episode are never the same as the synopses; they are always new things to discover. It's rather like looking up an address on the map. Just because I know where the address is doesn't mean I know the area inside out, it's still an unknown territory. The only way I can get to know the area is to explore it in person.
I also do find it fun not knowing. It's rather like putting out an intention to have a particular experience but not knowing how it's going to be made manifest. That's the wonder of not knowing.
I love knowing and I love not knowing.
