Kristin from eonline talks with C.Kane and others about spoiler security. Once upon a time, back when I began this gig, TV show spoilers flowed like boxed wine. But recently, it seems TV producers are doing whatever it takes to cut off us journalists--employing various schemes to keep inside info out of the fans' hands.
Case in point: When the long missed Christian Kane recently returned to the WB's Angel to hop in the sack with costar Sarah Thompson (Eve) and reveal her character was evil, Joss Whedon and his minions went all out to protect the surprise.
"People were freaking out a little, trying to keep it under wraps," Christian told me at the show's 100th episode junket. "They had me using a fake name--an alias--and they kept me out of the credits. We did this scene at a strip club with a whole lot of extras, and no one was allowed to use my name."
But Angel is hardly the only show stepping up the anti-spoiler attacks.
