Kevin Smith's 'Spoilers' on 'Prometheus' Lives Up To Its Title

if you haven't seen Ridley Scott's new movie yet, you may want to skip this week's episode until you do.

"Spoilers."
"Spoilers."

On the second episode of Kevin Smith's movie review show, the "Clerks" director chats with 50 film fans about Ridley Scott's "Prometheus" in exacting detail, interviews the film's co-writer, Damon Lindelof about how he got into the business and then landed this geektastic gig, and recommends The Criterion Collection DVD of "The Blob." And seriously, if you haven't seen "Prometheus" yet and care about being surprised, do not watch this show. It ain't called "Spoilers" for nothing, man. Don't come crying to me claiming I made you watch it and then ruined the big reveal that the xenomorphs were actually created by the Star Child from "2001: A Spacey Odyssey."

Oops. I, uh, think I've said too much.  

In terms of style, format, and tone, I don't see any major changes between "Spoilers"' first and second episodes (the interview is slightly longer, but the review is about the same length). One minor correction: Hulu Plus has a lot of Criterion Collection titles available to stream -- including "The Blob" -- but not "the entire" Criterion Collection, as Smith says.  

Here's the episode. What do you think? Your opportunity to spoil the "Spoilers" lies in the comments section below.
