    Thrones isn't trash, its one of the greatest TV shows of all time. has a laughably poor ending, but doesnt take away the greatness of the show. might be the most iconic cultural phenomenon of the decade

    Season 8 ruined the overall series in my opinion.

    I could put up with seasons 1-7 just fine but the last one is too much.

    Would you watch the entire series knowing how poorly it ends?

    If you're a teenage emo girl, yep. Just like Twilight for the previous gen.

    yes. i still suggest people watch Dexter through season 4 because it was great TV

    anybody's first time seeing Ned's "justice," the red wedding, tyrions trial, mountain vs viper, hardhome, blackwater, battle of bas s, jon's "for the watch" moment, etc etc will always be amazing experiences

    I might do it. Though my HBO Now and HBO Max will overlap; so I'll be double paying for a bit.

    Depends on how you signed up, I think right now anyone who signed up for HBO Now outside of through Amazon will get HBO Max.

    Pre-order HBO Max to get instant access on May 27 and start streaming HBO NOW today. Get 12 months for $11.99/month (plus applicable taxes), cancel anytime. This limited-time offer lets you stream HBO NOW when you sign up for the offer at the discounted rate of $11.99/month and HBO Max when it's available on May 27, on supported devices at the continued discounted rate for the remainder of the 12-month promotional period.
    HBO NOW subscribers who are billed directly through HBO will get instant access to HBO Max from WarnerMedia when it launches on May 27, 2020 (at no extra cost). HBO NOW subscribers who are billed through Apple or Google Play will also get access to HBO Max.
    You get switched, but I see nothing about getting the promo price. I'll have to cancel HBO Now and sign-up for HBO Max it appears to get the promo price.

    This is what you should see




    And yes, I think you would have to cancel and sign up again with a new email or account ID. I'm guessing this campaign is to juice the new signups #s

    Great endings to great TV shows are quite frankly few and far between (not commenting on Thrones specifically, never watched the show), judging a show by its ending would rule out a lot of the all time greats (The Wire, Dexter, Ray Donovan, etc).

    If you think about it the better the show is the harder the ending is to pull off. When you’ve ended 5+ seasons with the goal of making the audience really excited for the next season, it’s hard to suddenly pivot to an ending where the audience is content with the show being over.

    It's technically a new service, so I would think current subscribers are eligible in theory. But it is possible that they didn't design their system to allow it.

    A lot of people liked The Tru Blood ending. I wasn't a fan of the suicide though. It was wholly unnecessary, IMO.
    I just finished Six Feet Under. I would've watched it at the time if I thought it matched the hype. That was a really good ending.

    Tru Blood the gay vampire show? I wouldn’t classify that one as a great TV show.

    So what's the verdict?

    Anyone here tried it yet? How's the interface?

    Dumbass AT&T doesn't have a Roku app yet.

    I'll dig out my Chromecast and/or use some other device soon.
