If you like The Wire, True Blood, etc then go for it tho.
All movies on Max make their way to HBO...

Save for the porn that is.

No, not yet at least....

Wikipedia has this to say on the Second Season:

On August 17, 2007, HBO announced a second season for Flight of the Conchords, originally set to premiere in 2008[7], but which has been postponed to January 2009. Prior to the announcement, Jemaine Clement stated in an interview with The New Zealand Herald, "[HBO] is interested in doing another series but we have to think about it. It's not a definite offer but they have talked about us starting writing but we've got other things we want to do as well".[8]

Bret McKenzie has stated in several interviews that the band has used up "97 percent" of their old songs in the first season. In an interview with The Star Ledger, he said "We'd need some time to develop new material. It's like the second album syndrome. It might take a lot longer".[9] Shortly after the renewal announcement, Clement stated in an interview that the second season would likely consist of fewer than twelve episodes "so they could concentrate on 'quality not quantity'".

McKenzie and Clement returned to their home town of Wellington to write for the second season[10], although the writing process was delayed by the 2007-2008 Writers Strike. Filming for the 10 episode second series began in September 2008. That same month, McKenzie and Clement were quoted in a Q interview that the second series would most likely be the last.[11]

And I'm sure that's why Ben prefers 'Max to HBO.... he's got to get that stuff from some place*.

*It's all in good fun - no harm intended Ben.

There's usually around 7 or 8 HBO channels. Personally I think HBO sucks. They will show the same 4 movies for a week straight. Generally their original series are the only thing on there worth watching, but having not seen the new vampire show, I can't make a recommendation one way or the other.

Just have to ask yourself if it's worth $10 or $15 or whatever the charge is per month to watch that one show for what, 4 hours a month. Is it worth $3 an hour to watch?
