The Night ‘True Detective’ Broke HBO GO [VIDEO] [NSFW]

I think we can all agree I watch WAY too much TV. It’s an addiction, but when so many good shows are out there, it’s difficult not to tune in. One such show that has captured mine and millions of viewers’ attention is HBO’s gritty crime drama ‘True Detective’. I hope Matthew McConaughey isn’t tired of winning awards, because he’s going to win some more for his role as the philosophical, flawed detective Rust Cohle. Thus, I could not wait to watch Sunday night’s finale. However, I and millions of HBO GO users would have to wait a few hours. Here’s wait happened. I’m also a big fan of ‘The Walking Dead’ (who isn’t?!? but it and the reboot of ‘Cosmos’ were both airing the same time as ‘True Detective’. No problem, I would watch the zombie series live and record ‘Cosmos’. Because more than likely, the ‘True Detective’ finale would be available via HBO GO as soon as the broadcast finished. So, I waited a few minutes after 9pm, and I logged onto HBO GO via my Google Chromecast, nothing. I immediately got the inkling demand was high. Next, I tried to access the show on my laptop, still nothing. Plus I got an error message that said something to the effect of “fatal download error” Uh oh! It wasn’t until I took to Twitter to see this:

 

Oh boy! Well, I opted to go ahead, since I had the Chromecast plugged in, and watch some Netflix. I kept checking back, nothing! I even went so far to download the HBO GO app on my tablet and try again, nope. It wasn’t until about 12:30 this morning when app finally worked on my tablet. So I scurried up my stairs to bed and I settled in to watch one creepy finale. Okay, the following video goes inside the episode, please don’t watch if a) you haven’t seen the finale yet, b) if you are squeamish.
