Just wanted to alert those who have not seen the series to not visit the discussion group(s) on this show. It is NOT FUN to know what happens ahead of time. (IMHO) A few ladies have found out future events and have decided to share.
Just wanted to give y'all a heads up.
Some people like to read the last chapter of a book first, some do not...your choice.

Thank you for that support. I was wondering if I should say anything or not. For me, it totally ruins a most delightful story to know what happens. ...but not everyone feels like I do. I would not have visited the topic if I had known, so I thought an alert would be helpful.
PS I misspelled Abby it should be Abbey...I have asked adm to correct it for me.
Yeah! Cynthia Sue corrected my selling error...what a doofus I am!

I use the rule that if I have not watched the show, I hold off going to the discussion. I do that with any discussion of shows -- like the Project Runway one.

In my personal opinion, I just watched the show so then caught up with the discussion and did not see any spoilers unless you have not seen the latest episode. Maybe this happened earlier. Now there is lots of speculation about what might happen, but that is fun.

Hope you get caught up with all the episodes soon.

I don't post about plot twists until after a particular episode has aired. I figure once an episode's been shown, then it's going to be talked about all over the net and elsewhere anyway.

I figure it's safe to post about what happened on an already aired show too. And, to speculate about the future. I have no idea of what is coming up in the future!

Not all PBS stations are on the same schedule. Sometimes the schedules are weeks apart.

Yes, that is what I was thinking too. In addition there was some discussion of what others had found out about the plot in the future. Those might have been edited. I will not go back to find out. I also have come to understand many are not even watching it via PBS but other sources and thus have not even seen many of the episodes. I guess this is the hazard of a forum that spans the globe. Thus I thought a warning would be helpful.

Oh, okay, I didn't realize all that. Yes, the warning is good. I wouldn't go to any discussions either if I hadn't seen the most recent epiode either.

There actually were spoilers...perhaps they have edited their comments. Doris even requested they not do that.
