Our social conventions, like our laws, are way behind our technological advances. In this case, there are TiVo/DVR/Hulu/Netflix/disc and other options to watch shows individually or in binge sessions. It's not like back in the day when you either saw it when it aired or you never would (until rerun season) so water cooler/social media talk was safe. And there's not even the option of staying offline until you see the show or movie because there's ALWAYS some show or movie that can be spoiled for you in the comic shop, via Twitter, on Facebook or, as I've experienced, ... as you're handing your tickets to the theater employee.
