    Dylan finally realized he should invest his $19.99 a month in actual porn sites than watching the softcore stuff on HBO

    I subscribed to Netflix and never looked back. I could probably drop cable altogether.

    Sucks for you that HBO cockblocks Netflix. There was a good bit of talk on the Tech forum so I watched the first two episodes through HBO On Demand tonight. Pretty damn good, and everyone who has read the books says these two episodes are really slow because they are just character-building, and starting next week things are going to get crazy.

    Some people have complained about all the nudity, but I think most of it's been necessary to the storyline. And I'm not one for gratuitious nudity. Anybody with HBO should definitely check it out. I'm tempted to record the series and read the books first, though fans of the book have said its remarkable how close to the books the shows are.

    Read the books and its one of my favorite series. They are doing a good job on the shows so far.

    HBO knows their shit, no doubt. The audio during the initial HBO spot before every original series is one of my favorite sounds, you know, the 'aaaAAAHHHHH' as the static becomes HBO.

    I watched Californication season 4 (whatevs) and most of Shameless season 1 during the Showtime free preview I got recently. Too bad HBO is stingy and only leaves 3 or 4 episodes up at a time.
