Season 1 of HBO’s “Looking” ends

It’s 2:30 AM on Monday, March 10, 2014.
…..and now, it is with great regret that I watch the repeated version of the season-ender of the HBO series, Looking.

I’ve come to love this weekly half-hour series that features masculine gay men who are friends living in San Francisco. The show greatly reminds me of Armistead Maupin’s novels (and early 1990’s TV mini-series) Tales of the City and Showtime’s [U.S. version] of Queer as Folk. Actually, Looking – in my opinion, is more like the former than the latter. And before you ask readers; yes… I do have my favorite characters in the show but I’d rather not mention them.

Oh, ok, ok. Fuck it; I’ll tell!
I’m feeling the vibe of Richie (yes!); I like Dom (who is very handsome for that character’s age of 40); and definitely feeling Kevin (who gets a double yes from me). I think Lynn and I are in the same age group so I can certainly relate to that character’s kool, laid-back demeanor a great deal.
Looking-1I don’t know when – or if the series Looking will be back so for now I’ll simply say,
See you guys later…to the show’s characters:
Patrick (Jonathan Groff)
Agustin (Frankie J. Alvarez)
Dom (Murray Bartlett)
Richie (Raúl Castillo)
Kevin (Russell Tovey)
Lynn (Scott Bakula)
Frank (O.T. Fagbenle)
I must note that I think Scott Bakula was/is a great add to the show; but then I’m bias since I’ve always been a long-time fan of his work.

I sure hope to see each of these guys next season – which I hope will come soon!

And now this memorable scene between Looking’s Patrick and Richie:

Keepin’ It…REAL!

  1. I appreciate your overview of this series, my naked brother and friend. I never had the opportunity to watch even one episode. To be honest, the several acquaintances who did follow the show didn’t have many positive comments about the performers or the plot.

    As a gay man, I’m not one to simply view a movie or television show just because it has a same gender loving character or theme. The content (plot, story-line, whatever) has to appeal to me in order for me to commit the time to regularly involve myself.

    After reading your post here, Rob, I’m sorry I didn’t give the show a chance. I’ll now have to catch what I missed with the “on demand” feature.

    As always, I should have asked your opinion long ago, my man! I’ll check it out! C2C hugs, my nude buddy! Great review! 🙂
