WhoHasTheRemote.com weighs in on Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner’s anti-spoiler policy. On the back of a news report in Huffpost TV, Who Has The Remote? approves of the policy that prevents cast and crew members from revealing details about future episodes.

WhoHasTheRemote.com issued their approval today of the anti-spoiler policy started by Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner. With the much-anticipated season premiere of Mad Men just a few weeks away, fans of the show are eager to hear details about what they can expect for season six. However, the show’s creator is not a fan of what those in the industry call “spoilers.” Cast members of the popular television show have taken Weiner’s stance to heart and follow his wishes, according to a recent news report in Huffpost TV.

In a recent roundtable interview, John Hamm, who plays Don Draper on the hit show, revealed that his feelings on spoilers are the same. He ruminates on how the show has become “the standard-bearer for this idea of being secretive.” He went to add, “I don’t see anybody talk about their season at the beginning of the season. No one does.” As a self-professed TV fan, Hamm wants viewers to “experience it without it being spoon fed to them or told, ‘Oh, you have to watch this one and this one, and this is why this means something.’ Who wants that? Then it’s like homework.”

Who Has The Remote? heartily agrees with Weiner and Hamm. When it comes to anticipating a favorite TV show, there’s nothing worse than clicking on a link that fails to include a “spoiler alert” tag. Spoilers are aptly named. They ruin the viewing experience for fans that prefer not knowing anything about an episode ahead of time. Mad Men’s creator has come up with the perfect solution to this issue: don’t provide spoilers in the first place.

Fans of the show can tune in or set up their Dish Hopper to record the two-hour premiere on AMC on Sunday, April 7 at 9 p.m. EDT. Who Has The Remote? believes that the show promises to be an exciting one.

Who Has The Remote? gave their approval of Mad Men creator Matt Weiner’s anti-spoiler policy today, and emphasized that spoilers take away from the television viewer’s experience and should be frowned upon.
