After some persuasion (not nagging
) from azteclady
here is an index of Obvious Facts
. I have only including things relating directly to the show, and not this forum or anything else. So no "don't post spoilers in General Discussion." I think any future posts in this thread should adhere to this as well.
I have chosen cover every episode aired in the US
, but nothing regarding spoilers or theories. These facts
are ones that may not be obvious
on first viewing of an episode, but can quickly be found on any site like this, therefore anyone reading this site will probably know about them, and wont appreciate having to read about them again. There are people who don't know these facts
, and this is who these are here for. I would like to point out that this is not newbie-bashing, but a way to help prevent it.
Whether you are a newbie or not, please read these, and don't repost them anywhere, especially again on this thread. If you want to discuss them, there is a search function, and you will find threads regarding what you want to talk about. Posting in existing threads rather than starting new ones will improve your reputation if you are a newbie.
