    But at least time-traveling future daughters and wives have your back.

    The Internet is a treacherous place for those of us who aren't caught up on the latest episode of whatever television show everyone is talking about. According to a new survey by TiVo (hey, that's still a thing! Who knew?), though, its our friends who we should really be avoiding.

  6. Are There Rules for Spoilers? Should There Be?

    Spoiler alert! Probably not.

    Personally, I believe in a statute of limitations, whereby you no longer have to feel responsible for not spoiling things after they've been around long enough, but you still shouldn't do it on purpose like a jerk. Of course, what exactly even constitutes a spoiler is different for different people, so maybe the Internet prophylactic method suggested by Emily Eifler would be a better way to go. PBS Idea Channel tried to find some other solutions. Get working on the spoiler condom, science.

  10. The Batfamily Reunited This Week, Except for One: Let’s Not Forget Batgirl Cassandra Cain

    Essay

    One of the more easily pointed to examples of sexism in the New 52 concerned which of the five characters to be called Robin and three characters to be called Batgirl made it to the new continuity. Editorial explained to fans that two Batgirls would be erased from the setting so the "most iconic" one, Barbara Gordon, could be returned to the costume, to make things simple for new readers. However, in the other Batcave locker room, all four of the male characters who had been Robin were brought over to the New 52, despite the new universe having a hard age limit of five years from the first appearance of Batman. This week saw one of those women (spoiler for Batman #28) Stephanie Brown, the third Batgirl and fourth Robin, return to comics as the Spoiler in a sneak preview of the next story arc to engulf Gotham City and the Batman-related titles. And while I'm very excited to have her back, I worry about Cassandra Cain, the first person of color to join the Batfamily, who is now that last Batgirl sitting on the bench with the rest of the New 52's abandoned heroes.
