    I feel this doesn't get made if there weren't dozens of channels and streaming services that need content. That said, I'm enjoying it. It doesn't feel like a show that would be on mainstream HBO if that was the only thing out there.

    Watched the last three episodes on my Roku...

    I had a hard time with the sheer amount of hallucinations in episode...6, I think...

    And I didn't like the twist with the other flight assistant...

    Yep, will look tonight to see if our Roku HBO app updated to HBO Max; it's supposed to happen automatically and preserve your account info etc.

    I just deleted the HBO app and followed the instructions here to add the HBO Max app. It showed up on my Roku and it preserved my account info...

    No need to even delete the app, just highlight the tile, press the '*' button, select update channel, and it should update to HBO Max automatically.

    *S1 E8 Finale Spoilers ---YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED*

    Watched the finale this morning and I agree with the article posted before this one. They cleaned up the mystery of this season and set up a second season if they want to go there. The whole series to me was a hot mess, but was a fun ride the whole way. They never really tied in Megan's story to the primary story but she confided in Cassie so if they go to a season 2, there's a story line there. The other FA being a CIA agent came out of left field, like so much in this series, but because they've been doing it the whole time, it really didn't bother me. This is one of those shows that you have to suspend all belief and just watch and enjoy. And I'm fine with that.

    I'm amazed at how much the show improved as it went, especially in the last three episodes.

    Although part of that is that aspects of the show that seemed troublesome early on (e.g., her alcohol use) turned out to be not just a gag, but a major plot point with a serious payoff. I'm almost tempted to watch it again to see if the early episodes "read" better in light of the later ones; I suspect that will be the case.

    Let's hope they drop the whole alcohol/dad thing in season 2!

    Well, the good news is she's taken(at least!) the first step...she's admitted she has a problem.

    And she's gotten past the dead lover.

    So...wait...no alcohol abuse, no hallucinations...

    What's left?!?

    :D

    Writing! She is flying around the world. There are spies! She has a gay brother! Why go backwards!
    Not that I expect it to be a Covert Affairs but that was fun with a lot of remote locales.

    You're welcome, everybody! See, this is how things work - I go ahead and purchase a Fire Stick because Roku doesn't have Max and then *VOILA* Max comes to Roku. :D

    That's how it works in the world of comic books...everybody waits for a classic run to get a nice deluxe hardcover collection. Finally, somebody breaks down and buys all the original comics, and the next thing you know, the book is announced! :D

    This morning I finally watched E01 and E02 of this show. Looking forward to seeing more of the season in the coming days. I like Kaley and I like the dialed-down Rosie.

    It starts out pretty rough but then it hits its stride midway and really "lands" the ending. Fun ride so-to-speak and looking forward to S2.

    My HBO didn't update automatically, and when I tried to run the HBO Max app it just put me back on the old HBO app. But I deleted the old app and then the new app started, and it used my old login info so I didn't have to redo the login. Good enough!

    Watched the finale last night, I agree it was pretty good. There was a little too much "oh that guy is dead... oh wait, he's waiving from the ambulance!" at the end, including Felix who got shot in the chest and the Italian lover who was stabbed in the stomach!

    Also the plot trope of hitting people with a light bulb stuns them... this was especially funny because she hoists this obviously heavy lamp then instead of hitting Felix with the marble base she pops him on the head with the bulb. Yeesh.

    I definitely don't expect them to forget about the alcoholism in S2. There's a lot to work with there and they treated it with some weight in S1 so I don't think they'll just decide "oh she's in AA, she's all good!" in S2. Hopefully they show, or at least imply, that she's getting some actual therapy as well.

    Oh, definitely, and I didn't mean to suggest that. I just think (hope) that her days of being a falling-down drunk are over. But there's still a lot of drama (and humor) to be had from being an EX-falling-down drunk.

    (I suspect seeing that character in AA meetings will be the source of a lot of drama and humor by itself! :D)
