TV show description:
This comedic drama follows the lives of three gay friends in modern-day San Francisco. Each is at a different place in their personal journeys.

A 29-year-old transplant from Colorado, Patrick (Jonathan Groff) is a video game designer who works at the Most Dangerous Games company and lives in the Lower Haight. Recently out of a six-month relationship (with a guy who’s now engaged), he’s the “boy next door” who spends time with his buddies and surfing dating websites looking for love.

A struggling artist and free spirit, Agustín (Frankie J. Alvarez) is Patrick’s 31-year-old roommate and friend from college. He works for another artist, Stina, while looking to be inspired for his next project. With a Cuban background, Agustín was raised in the Miami area and has a good-natured boyfriend named Frank (O-T Fagbenie). Frank plays in a band, lives across the San Francisco Bay in Oakland, and wants Agustín to move in with him.

A longtime waiter at Zuni on San Francisco’s Market Street, Dom (Murray Bartlett) is 39 and is facing middle age with his romantic and professional dreams still unfulfilled. He’s contemplating what he really wants out of life and that may include opening a restaurant of his own. Dom lives with Doris (Lauren Weedman), a fellow Modesto native, and romantically gravitates toward younger men.

Other characters include Kevin (Russell Tovey), a 30-year-old British video game whiz; Owen (Andrew Law), Patrick’s co-worker; Richie (Raul Castillo), a charming thirtysomething who’s working his way up at a barber shop while manning the door at the Mission’s Esta Noche club; and Lynn (Scott Bakula), a possible investor for Dom.

We want to see more of Looking. Its solidly real — not filled with a bunch of eye-candy (i.e. QaF). A show like this needs to age before being judged–is not the same true of good literature and good wine? As a SGM with some age on me; its refreshing to see a series that I can more readily identify with than the “fluff” so often passed as “gay” entertainment. I want to know these guys better; their backgrounds, their likes and dislikes, their good qualities and their self center preoccupations. Keep on keeping on!

Please don’t end this series now, there is so much more to tell. Like Tales of the city, more tales of the city, further tales of the city. These characters cant be left without us knowing their future……… Like q ueer as folk a story should be told….?

Looking deserves another season…actually, it deserved a longer season in its first year. the acting is good, the scripts are good, and we need more ‘real’ depictions of gay life. I hope the show sticks around for a long time.

Love the series. It’s been a long time since a gay themed show has been shown. Look forward every week for the new episode.
