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 !:)). 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
