For many HBOGo users, Sunday night was a night of true disappointment.
Rabid fans of the elaborate, moody Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson-anchored drama True Detective swarmed to HBO's streaming service Sunday night in such droves, they literally broke the service.

Matthew McConaughey has a question for Matthew McConaughey: "What can I get an experience out of?"
That's what the actor asked himself before signing on to star in Dallas Buyers Club, a role that would require him to lose 47 lbs. – and, ultimately, gain a Best Actor trophy.
But it's also the approach McConaughey applies to much of his life, including his first-ever Oscar nomination.

If you thought it had something to do with Woody Harrelson's father-in-law – and this doesn't constitute a spoiler, because that was too off-base to ever be possible – you were wrong.
In fact, just about every theory that cropped up online speculating about the finale of HBO's terrific True Detective (and inspiring writers to mention the notorious ending of Lost) was wrong.
Now onto some real spoilers.

With its obsessed fan base, wild-eyed monologues and sprawling Lovecraftian mythos, HBO neo-noir True Detective is ripe for satire. As the series gears up for its finale Sunday night, a number of online jokers have gotten their parodies out at exactly the right time.
Our favorite is Onion veteran David Sidorov's "Yellow King Theory," which pokes fun at the insane brand of hyper-analysis the show has inspired in its fans. Sidorov's theory of who the real killer is might seem unconventional at first, but with his obsessive eye for detail, he's spotted clues that more casual viewers probably missed.

Life for Matthew McConaughey these days is a whole lot better than just "all right" – and he knows it.
"I try to give a lot to my life and the people in it," the Best Actor Academy Award winner tells PEOPLE in this week's cover story, "and I know they sure give back. I have a lot to be thankful for."
After more than two decades in Hollywood, the actor, 44, is embracing his career "McConaissance" – an achievement he says wouldn’t be possible without the support of his wife, Camila, 31, and their kids Levi, 5½, Vida, 4, and 15-month-old Livingston.
