YouTube Comments Rage

We don't have cable TV, because if we did, I'd be watching E! and TLC all the time and won't do any studying. Ever. So at home, we all rely on the internet, namely the ever so loyal YouTube to be entertained. I mean really, name one thing you cannot find on YouTube. 

I thought so.

Anyway, recently I discovered these channels on YouTube that uploads the best cooking game shows. Did I tell you how much I love them? No? I'm nuts about them...and home makeover shows. 

So the thing is, I like reading YouTube comments. Some are so funny and the others are just downright crazy! And the arguments are awesome. When you see a clever come back in reply to a comment, you'd wanna see what it was in reply to right? So you click 'Show comment'. Do that enough times and you'd see a drama unfold. Just grab the popcorn and read on. Sometimes they are better than the video you're watching. I promise!

But the thing about comments is, what you read cannot be unread. And when watching the cooking game shows, episode by episode, there are certain comments that can ruin the entire show for you. So lately I've been trying to refrain from reading the comments section because this happened. 

I was watching a season of the Great British Bake Off, and I read this comment right before I watched the finale, which by then had become kinda pointless. 

Seriously, what's the point in doing this. What kinda pleasure does this person get from knowing that he's ruined the show for a bunch of people? 

Don't you just hate it when this happens?
