A New York woman suffered a seizure at a party when party guests began to speak about a new HBO show she hadn't watched. Though no plot details were given away, the mere mention of the show sent the woman into convulsions.
"You know," one party guest said, "most people can talk about a show without giving anything away."
The woman eventually recovered but has pledged not to come out of her house until she has finished watching everything on Netflix and HBO.
Unfortunately, when the woman accidentally overheard one of our staff members talking about a new NPR docu-podcast, she fell into a coma.
Though her condition is stable, doctors fear she might not ever wake up. She will be too behind on shows.
