Sometimes you start watching a show not in the year it was aired while it is still on, and if you want to check something on IMDB you might get spoilers:
If you click on a character's filmography, you immediately see if he was on that show THIS year, the year he was last on the show and for how many episodes. So you know for sure that that character might be out of the show, or that he is still alive. For some shows that's a major spoiler!
So it happens to me A LOT that I don't check something on IMDB until I finish watching all aired episodes, which is a shame.
