I look at reviews on Amazon to see whether or not it is worth watching, if it gets good reviews, I consider watching etc.

But then again even bad films or shows can get reviews, even the dreadful Exorcist sequel gets some reviews.

My Grandmother bought me House Of Cards Season 1-5 on DVD, for Christmas, now after what is said about Kevin Spacey, I don't want to watch it, so I have started reading reviews of it on Amazon etc, because some contain spoilers, which will tell me what happens. Without me having to watch it.

Is that a good idea? Ate Amazon reviews reliable?
