Yeah they want to make HBO Netflix and I do think it's not going to be a great business model.

I don't get why they wanted to change HBO at all, it just doesn't seem to make any sense to whatsoever

I just can't see that working out well at all.

Silly really changing it..

I watched the premier of 'Sharp Objects' and must admit I thought it would be a bit better...although Amy Adams was great...will give E2 a go..

I'm not surprising since not everyone have access into HBO, Showtimes, others bec I have to use my brother's account to watch HBO shows and stuff.. Plus buying HBO dvd are ridiculous expensive as hell..

the thing is, its been awhile since hbo has been onto a winner for a series though

Have you read the book? I haven't and watching this show blind. Amy is wonderful though, I agree.

^ Honestly, in the beginning of the book are like that since they can't rush it since I can't say it why she haven't been in the town, but you will see more of it..

I tho that show was cancelled?

They haven't had anything like GoT recently but shows like Big Little Lies and Westworld definitely have hype and acclaim behind them. HBO has never been a network that needs huge numbers to still be very profitable and they are still the preeminent network when it comes to quality. Plus they've still have the GoT spinoffs in the works.

I still haven't gotten the chance to watch Sharp Objects yet. I can't wait to watch it though. I Amy.

^ I didn't read the book but I enjoyed the premiere and Amy Adams is really good. Admittedly, I've seen Amy in a lot of rom com movies so this role for her is already screaming an Emmy nom for me.

I also agree with what you said about HBO. Some of their shows are REALLY good (The Wire, Six Feet Under, Boardwalk Empire, The Sopranos, just to name a few). There's always going to be at least 1 new show that I'll watch on HBO.

They aren't going to fast since it will be like in the book since it will start to build up for her after what happened from what we saw the flashback..
