Real Time with Bill Maher

Lousy service from Amazon Prime
Verified purchase
My husband and I really enjoy watching this show, so we thought it would be good just to purchase the season instead of getting an HBO subscription. But Amazon is at least two weeks behind on episodes, so we cannot watch them when they come out. This is very disappointing and I wish there was a way to cancel and get our money back
