    Since it appears that some box covers/inserts/promo intro/commentaries... include SPOILER(S) for a season or even the rest of the series (!), how about a list of things we should avoid looking at when we watch a show on DVD for the first time (NOT the obvious stuff, like the eps summary or a featurette called "The Making of the Season Finale")?
    I don't consider the addition of a new cast member to be a spoiler, unless (s)he's returning like Spike
    in Buffy.

    This will only work if many people (other than me) are willing to participate (I hope so ![​IMG]). I'll edit the first post to maintain a list.
    Got this idea after reading this thread

    I propose to use the following format:
    - Name of the serie
    - Where ?
    - What (between SPOILERS tags if necessary) ?
    - Safe after (S1, middle S2, end of the series, or a precise eps)

    24: Season 2
    Where The back of the dvd case and booklet
    What The outcome of an ongoing storyline
    Safe after You've watched Disc One.


    Alias: The Complete Second Season
    Where? Before the disc one DVD menu
    What A promo giving away severly spoilery and important plot twists about S2
    Safe: After finishing S2


    Angel: The Complete Third Season
    Where: On the actual disc labels
    What: Quotes giving away a major plot twist of the season
    Safe: After finishing the season


    The Apprentice - Complete First Season
    WHERE? Back of box
    WHAT? List of contestants in reverse order that they got fired
    SAFE: After finishing the season


    BUFFY
    1. Where? Insert S6 + outer cover S7
    What? Xander with a eye patch
    When? 7.18 Dirty Girls

    2. Where? Back of the booklet S7
    What? Final lines of dialogue of the series.
    When? After the finale


    THE OFFICE SPECIAL
    Where - The back of the dvd case (in a picture)
    What - The outcome of an ongoing storyline
    Safe after - You've watched the entire series plus the special (it's somewhat ongoing)


    Simpsons: Complete Second Season
    WHERE? Booklet
    WHAT? Very detailed synopsises of all episodes--sometimes giving away the ending
    SAFE: After finishing each episode


    Survivor: Borneo
    WHERE? Back of each slimcase
    WHAT? Detailed synopsises show who won each challenge and who got voted off
    SAFE: After watching each episode


    Survivor All Stars
    WHERE? Front of each slimcase
    WHAT? Shows the Survivors who were voted off in each episode included on the specific DVD
    SAFE: After finishing each disc





    What do you think ?
    Thanks to those who already provided information !

    Buffy season 6
    Where? the cover of the box as well as disc one of the set.
    What? the culmination of a season-long story arc regarding the said character
    Safe? after you've finished the season for sure, but you're okay after episode 20, "Villians" since that's where it takes place.

    - Name of the series - Roswell
    - Where? - on the back of the disc cases
    - What? - the most notable one i saw was the description for episode two "after the death of nasedo"

    - Safe after - probably should watch the episodes instead of reading the descriptions
