smooth move assholes

Hey New York Magazine, how about you use the photographic header for one of your articles to completely spoil Serenity for me?

Yeah, that blackened out area in the corner? Used to contain a photo of a major character from Firefly who apparently bites it in the movie. I guess it does fit into the general rule of spoilers - I mean, it's been what, two and a half years since Serenity came out? - but still, there should be some ridiculously long embargo on spoiling really good TV shows. Case in point, The Wire, and speaking of which, my soulmate revealed to me, only an hour after finding out about Wash's death, that Omar apparently dies in season 5, which made my morning even worse. If it weren't for a well-timed, AD-related email from Eddie I quite possibly would not be living right now.

And yes, I'm fully aware that by reposting this picture I'm perhaps spoiling the deaths of other characters one might not be aware of, but in my opinion, if you don't know what happens in Pulp Fiction you're pretty much an idiot, and I personally don't give a rat's ass about 24 or The Big Lebowski. Anyway, sacrilegious as it may sound, I liked Firefly more than any of them.

Note: As always, spoilers invisotexted!
