The highly anticipated finale of True Detective was in such high demand on Sunday night that it crashed HBO Go. Needless to say, the Twitterverse was outraged.
HBO Go acknowledged the technical glitch via Twitter, writing:
Due to overwhelmingly popular demand for #TrueDetective, we've been made aware of an issue affecting some users. Please try again soon.— HBO GO (@HBOGO) March 10, 2014
For those who are unfamiliar with the wildly popular miniseries on HBO, starring Oscar winner Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson, True Detective follows the lives of two detectives, Rust Cohle (McConaughey) and Martin Hart (Harrelson), who become entangled with each other during a 17-year hunt for a serial killer in Louisiana.
Here are five of the more memorable responses to HBO Go's crash:
@HBOGO what is my password friendly uncle paying you for?!?!?!— Honest Tom (@HonestToms) March 10, 2014
.@HBOGO sounds like something the Yellow King would say...— Scott Windsor (@swindsor) March 10, 2014
@HBOGO is the Yellow King as proven by their evil ploy to not let us see the finale. I hope Rust Cohle gets vengeance on you from all of us!— Anne Gregory (@annethegreg) March 10, 2014
@HBOGO Might need a true detective, because the play button's not working for me.— matt hunter (@matthunter) March 10, 2014
Despite the technical difficulties, there is good news for True Detective fans. According to Deadline, creator Nic Pizzolatto is working on a second-season premise that will include new characters and story-line.
