Today I watched the first episode of The Guild‘s third season. I hadn’t seen any trailers or read anything prior to it. In fact, I was almost ready to ignore the hype before just getting the first episode on a whim. The episode was fun and it set up a lot of things….until all of a sudden, this guy shows up.
I’m sure you might consider this a spoiler but not when it’s clearly in the trailer. Anyway, I started thinking about the past year with Kamen Rider Decade….
….Because for some reason, everything goes back to Tokusatsu somehow in my mind-The point is that with that show, we had spoiler information on not only the entire Final Form Ride series but that of Complete Form, months before its debut. Maybe I’d have enjoyed Tetsuo Kurata’s return as BLACK and BLACK RX had I not read up on anything? Maybe the movie might be more enjoyable not having seen anything going into it, spoiler clips or otherwise?
So…..I had an idea.
I, Mike Dent, will attempt the impossible: I will ignore any and all spoiler photos, discussion threads, anything that could possibly reveal any more information about Kamen Rider Double than what has already been revealed. I’ll then watch the show from start to finish to see if I can truly enjoy it more for not having known about power-ups, new villains, etc. This had been suggested to me before but on in the capacity of not watching a Sentai series to enjoy its Ranger adaptation. I didn’t really see the point as I’m not really that much a Ranger fan but now, it seems like an interesting idea.
In an age where information is overflowing through the cracks, it may seem futile but I’ll let you guys know about how this one turns out. Feel free to try it out too if you want! I’m interested to hear what your responses are while flying blind.
