A #TrueDetective would figure out what's wrong with @HBOGO #HBO

Let's all calm down and watch How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days until HBO GO comes back. It's what McConaughey would want.

Our condolences to everyone trying to make HBOGo, y'know, go right now. #truedetective

HBOGo's spinning buffer wheel is actually an ingenious Morse Code that spells "T O R R E N T S"

Can't believe this is how #TrueDetective ended! #TrueDetectiveFinale
