True Detective Finale Viewers Crash HBO Go

Well, we did it this time. Our collective thirst for the True Detective finale caused HBO Go to crash and TD fans to lose their minds on Twitter, fortunately both temporarily. "Due to overwhelmingly popular demand for #TrueDetective, we've been made aware of an issue affecting some users. Please try again soon," HBO GO tweeted. In what we imagine will be a learning experience for HBO regarding the streaming demands of their subscribers (and their subscribers' children's roommates), some viewers were unable to access the site for close to two hours. Our thoughts and prayers go out to those who had to wait until the site starting working again. As for everyone else: pretty great, right?
