And while on the subject of Twilight, if you want to see how it all began, catch The Twilight Saga: Twilight followed by The Twilight Saga: New Moon and The Twilight Saga: Eclipse on HBO Defined. The channel has also lined up new and old favorites like The Notebook, The Lake House, LOLWhen in Rome and No Reservations.
