For me, that was 5am when my dog was running around the apartment terrified of the insane thunder storms.

Because they want the "Oh shit!" moment seen on screen, not hearing it from some douche on the radio.
fair enough, but half a description from some douche doesnt really take away from watching how it happens

But now you're expecting it, which takes away from a shock moment.

For instance, if you knew Vader was Luke's father, would it have been as impactful? If you knew the chick at the end of The Crying Game was a dude, would it be as shocking? If you knew Bruce Willis was dead the entire movie, would the movie be as entertaining?

knowing the final point doesnt take away from the story leading there

No it does... Instead of going along for the journey leading to the end, you're now like "How do they get there?" You're taking yourself out of the storytelling and are now focused on how you get to the end. That feling is better suited for a repeated viewing, not your first one.

Listening to Opie talk about Astronomy is like listening to a 12 year old. I think we've been counting more than one Galaxy for the past 100 years.
