Don't you really hate it when trailers for movies or the next episode of your favorite series show all the good bits and spoil the whole thing on the assumption that you have a goldfish memory and won't remember that your favorite show is on in half an hour? Aren't you tired of having to screw up your eyes, stick your fingers in your ears and sing "la-la-la" until its over?
