    Let’s Settle This: What Constitutes a “Spoiler,” and When is It Okay to Let One Out?

    Internet, we need to have a serious talk about spoilers. It's gotten out of hand -- both hands. People are simultaneously being too sensitive about minor details, but also printing T-shirts ruining the endings of children's books. It's a divisive issue that comes up a lot here at the Geekosystem office, and I think it's high time we sat down and hashed this thing out. What's a spoiler, and when is it okay to let one out? Fair warning, I'll be using a few classic spoilers as examples, like The Sixth Sense and The Usual Suspects.

    I Scream, You Scream, We All Scream For… A Hitman Absolution Easter Egg! [Video]

    The Hitman series is known first and foremost for giving players the freedom to kill their targets in a variety of ways, ranging from the conventional to the needlessly complex. In Hitman Absolution, those methods can be down-right weird sometimes. If someone can explain why this easter egg involving vultures and an ice cream truck makes any sense, I'd be surprised. Luckily, things don't need to make sense to be funny. Before you watch, you should know that this video contains some mild spoilers for a mission late in the game. If you're playing Hitman Absolution and haven't started a mission called "End of the Road," you might want to avoid watching this. The easter egg is hidden at the very beginning of the mission, so you should be fine as long as you've gotten that far.

    NBC Promo for Parks and Recreation Accidentally Releases HUGE Spoiler?

    Toward the end of tonight's episode of NBC's Parks and Recreation, NBC aired one of their promos plugging the show's website, as is the custom. However, the promo seemingly contained a humongous spoiler: It told viewers to log onto the show's website for gift ideas for April and Andy's wedding. The thing is, there has been absolutely no sign whatsoever that April and Andy would be getting married anytime soon; in fact, the two characters aren't even dating, as Andy has been trying to win April over since last season.

    I have two theories:

    1. NBC released a promo for the show that was supposed to be for a future episode, thus accidentally revealing a huge spoiler at the wrong time.
    2. The episode that the promo aired after featured characters Ron Swanson and his ex-wife Tammy getting married during a drunken binge, and also featured character Jerry giving them a present from their wedding registry. So, instead of revealing a spoiler about April and Andy's future relationship, the NBC promo simply blundered and said the incorrect character names.
    However, the problem with theory #2 is the above video clearly shows April and Andy when the voiceover says their names, and I can't seem to find the wedding registry on NBC.com, where the promo says it'll be. Whatever the reason, it looks like NBC just made a pretty big blunder. UPDATE: Going with theory #2, the show's website finally updated with Ron and Tammy's wedding registry, though it seems to simply be 11 stock photos of nothing related to the show, nor anything comedic. It seems entirely possible that NBC realized their blunder, then quickly threw a Ron and Tammy wedding registry together in an attempt to cover their tracks; however, as the above video clearly shows, both April and Andy are shown on screen when the voiceover says their names in the promo.

    Aang is Not the Last Airbender: The 3 Biggest Unanswered Questions In Avatar

    So there's an Avatar: The Last Airbender movie, and, according to reliable sources, it sucks.

    FORGET ABOUT THAT.

    There's an Avatar: The Last Airbender cartoon, and it is still totally awesome.  By way of reinforcement, I give you my three favorite questions that were left completely unanswered over the course the series.  I'll try to keep it to a level where non-fans can enjoy as well, but I won't be able to do it without some spoilers.  If you're only part-way through the series, or plan on watching it later, consider yourself warned.
