Love it! See? We don't want to be pirates...but you're just charging too damn much, you greedheads! (I'm not a pirate btw, that was a rhetorical flourish.) But HBO has brushed off the olive branch with a tweet. Would you be willing to pay $12 per month for Game of Thrones? I did the math on my Netflix rental and realized I'm getting it for $2.50/month (assuming one season = three months). There's cheap and then there's cheap. And then there's me.
