    Hi everyone! It absolutely was a huge hit for HBO. The numbers only represent the beginnig. There is also the buzz it has created. Wow!
    I agree with you Jaxx. I have turned many people between my two jobs and when we work together the talk is all admiration mixed with speculation.
    Rutina was right when she said in an interview that everyone hits the ground running.

    Congratulations to HBO, Alan Ball, the writers, crew and our brilliant amazing cast who have made us fall in love with them.

    Thanks as always AdoreBill!
