Let's talk about what is and is not a spoiler, Walking Dead fans

How long after a show has aired can it be safely discussed?

Let's talk about spoilers. In this age of streaming, DVRs and delayed viewing, there's plenty of debate about what exactly constitutes one. For instance, when "Star Wars: the Force Awakens" was released, fans begged critics and fellow viewers to take it easy with plot details during the first week of release.

But a movie playing in theaters is one thing. A TV show that's already been broadcast? That's another. Except it isn't, according to some fans of "The Walking Dead." Sunday night saw the action-packed return of the zombie drama, and on Monday night — during the premiere of "Better Call Saul" — network AMC decided to advertise next week's episode by recapping the crazy stuff that had happened the night before. Apparently, that was not cool with some fans.

"AMC spoiling a one-day-old episode of 'The Walking Dead' during a 'Better Call Saul' break is going to piss a s—load of people off," one fan tweeted. Sure, except that's not really a spoiler anymore, you know? The show has aired. Just because you haven't had time to watch it doesn't mean everyone else has to wait quietly until you do.
