Spoiler images!

Dear Sidereel,
We come here to watch TV on the internet. It should then be assumed that we haven't actually seen what we are about to watch, right? How do you plan what image you are going to show of the episode you are airing? Please take this into consideration! I just came here to watch the finale of So You Think You Can Dance, and was met by a picture of the winner. C'mon! 21 episodes for nothing. I don't even want to watch it now or watch anything on your site for fear of spoilers.

Tina, firstly I'm sorry that it ruined it for you. I don't think it was done on purpose and I'm pretty sure it was a genuine mistake. I know its too late to remedy for you, but I have deleted the image. Again I'm really sorry, I hate spoilers too.

When you click on a new episode to watch, like off your track, it shows you a little picture from the episode. Most of the time it's fine, but sometimes it's very spoilery for the episode you're about to watch.

For example, the picture for Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior, Season 1, Episode 7, "Jane", pretty much ruins one of the coolest events that happens, well into the 3rd act of the episode.

Who on earth chooses the pictures? Why do we really need the pictures at all?
How about an option to turn them of? or some moderation to make sure they're not spoilers, or some what to easily report a spoilery photo to try to spare future people's enjoyment being ruined?

Hi Mikoto! So sorry about that, and thanks for pointing that out to us! We like to make sure our show pages for our most popular series are fully built out and look great, and also help give users an idea of what they're watching. We try our best to stay on top of them to make sure none are too spoilery, but it looks like that one may have slipped under our radar! Again we apologize and we'll definitely try to be more diligent in tracking down spoilery episode images.

For two weeks in a row now I've clicked into 'So You Think You Can Dance' to watch the latest episode and the picture for the results episode for both weeks is the final results of who made it to next week/winner. The picture makes it really obvious. It really ruins the surprise and suspense that I enjoy when watching the result show. Please choose other pictures.

So sorry about that - we've been trying to make sure our moderators are extra-careful about this, but sometimes some spoilery images still make it on the site! Sorry again - I've brought this to the attention of our content team!

Please can you stop putting up the photo's of who is leaving that week next to the results episodes? The last two weeks it's been super obvious who was the bottom contestant.

Hi Scarlett! So sorry about that! Since our images are uploaded by an off-site team, we try our best to make sure they know not to upload spoilery images, but sometimes one will slip under our radar!! Again, I apologize if the episode was ruined for you - as a fellow American Idol fan I know how frustrating that can be!

I have a problem with the pictures you assign to the episodes of certain reality shows, like american idol, because a number of times, that picture has ruined the result of that particular episode. This week for example, the person going home is obvious from the picture. Please be careful with that, thank you!

Hi Maru - so sorry about that! We actually just discovered that spoilery American Idol picture and were in the process of changing it. If you spot any other episode pictures that may be considered spoilery, please let us know!
