Since there's no vote saying I watched the leaks in winter 2017, I'll just say my piece of honesty:
Yes, I watched leaked episodes that happened last year (Can you really blame me for being curious?), but I didn't listen to episode 5 audio or watch the Mean six episode because that one would be a flop. I will say though that watching Surf and/or Turf early didn't kill the excitement for me, in fact it pretty much invigorated me to see it when it first aired on stream (Even though I had to work a morning shift in retail). It was the best episode out of the bunch!
And I will say that while leaking early production content can be very damaging to a company and the fandom in general, there will be people who are curious to know what's in the box. (I don't support leakage crimes, I'm just stating my opinion, that's all).
I watched the Finnish version WITHOUT subtitles!
I watched them all, the episode leaks and the animatics
this is MURICA, fuck yeah!
I don't watch the show anymore so I don't bother with leaks... I'm only lurking to see if the show is getting better in Applejack's case, but I haven't noticed anyone talk about anything specific that's enough to pull me back in. The show is still unfair and I hate it for that.
Some of my faith in this fandom has been restored after seeing the results of this poll.
Leaks and animatics ruin the surprise of watching the actual episode.
There's like legitimately no option that says "Yes I've watched the leaks" or something like that. Get your shit together EQD!!!
I'm in no hurry to watch any of this stuff. I saw episodes 9 and 10 last night and probably won't watch any more for a couple more weeks. The leaks are meaningless to me.
