HBO GO, the cable network's online streaming service, crashed for some users on Sunday night during the highly-anticipated "True Detective" season finale.
HBO GO confirmed the issue on Twitter:
Due to overwhelmingly popular demand for #TrueDetective, we've been made aware of an issue affecting some users. Please try again soon.

As expected, a wave of frustration swept the Twittersphere once viewers found themselves locked out with nothing to do but read a book or spend time with their loved ones.
Below are some of the reactions to the Great HBO GO Crash Of 2014:
